Aarrgghhhhh I hate this time of year with the fireworks. I have 4 dogs and one of them my pug really gets herself worked up when the bangs start. Unfortunately she has a nasty bout of kennel cough as it seems to be doing the rounds at the moment. For normal dogs it's not very nice but for pugs it can be lethal as they have such restricted airways. If she gets worked up it gets even worse! Last night she was non stop barking and I couldn't calm her down at all. I've tried all sorts with her but nothing works unfortunately we just have to try and get through it. Luckily my other 3 aren't affected by them. Last night however I had horrid stomache pains again so it was all very stressful I'm trying to work out what foods are affecting me at the mo,it's hard work but nuts are a definite no no as is wheat. I don't have anything processed,no caffeine and I only drink coconut milk. I've also cut out potatoes as they are part of the nightshade family that isn't good for fibro sufferers. I feel like I may end up having such a restricted diet. I did have some nuts yesterday but that just confirmed my stomache cannot cope with them
The good news is my kids are coming home today after a week with their dad. I have missed them so much! It's been nice to have a rest but I'm always overjoyed to have them back.
