I wrote this week about how loyal my dogs were when I took ill with a black out.
At 01.15 this morning it was my turn to show my friendship and loyalty to my little Teghan.
Teghan is an epileptic and as a result my wife sleeps downstairs to keep an eye on her. My wife phoned me and I knew then that Teghan was fitting.
I went down stairs and my wife had already covered her totally in a blanket. My job I sit or lie beside her cuddling her, stroking her and talking to her all the time.
When she fits her claws go rigid and unfortunately she sometimes loses control of her bodily functions.
After about half an hour feeling her claws to see if she is coming out of the fit, her claws were back to normal, she sat up but immediately went down again.
A short while later she sat up I took off her blanket still giving her my love till she was ready to stand up.
When she stood up and came around properly,I gave her a drink of cold water from the fridge to get her temp down and her favorite treat will tell me how she is (ps dont tell anyone her favorite treat is a custard cream)
May I say that during the time of her fitting her sister Megan was sitting beside her all the time.
When she has had her treat and cold water, it is I want to play dad, I was in that dark place again and now I am hyper.
So it is play time for a short while and once I was happy that she was ok I went back to bed.
Try sleeping after that. At 0500 something woke me up so I went downstairs to check only to be greeted by Teghan as happy as Larry. Oh no not another treat.
Today will be let me sleep all day today for her maybe me also. . Although she has been an epileptic for a number of years she is on no medication as as only fits about once or twice a month, we carry out this procedure give to us by the vet and it works.
It is horrible to see her fitting knowing the only thing that you can give her is your love and affection
It's a lesson about giving and taking and pay back time. They gave me their friendship, loyalty and affection now it was my turn to show her my friendship and loyalty after all she is daddies girl
