A post from Kelli–
You may be confused by the title of this post, but that is what we call Kalissa’s little dog Betsy. I have no idea how we came up with it, but it just stuck. A few weeks ago, I got a frantic call from Kalissa about little Miss Betsy. She said that she had been over at Mom’s and had two or three accidents in the house in a matter of about two hours. This was especially odd because she had been outside to go to the bathroom two or three times as well. Kalissa was worried that she had a bladder infection or urinary tract infection. She knew that Betsy needed to go to the vet, but she had to work and Craig was at work too.
Enter Super-Kelli! I ended up running up to Ossian (about 5 or 6 miles from my house) meeting Kalissa and picking up Betsy. We couldn’t get her into the vet right away, so we went back to my house for about a half an hour. Knowing that she was having bathroom issues, I picked up all of the rugs in the kitchen and attempted to barricade off the doorways into the kitchen. This proved quite difficult as we have a large arch into the dining room. I should have snapped a picture of what I rigged up as it was quite commical, but forgot. It involved chairs, boxes, and a few pillows, but it didn’t work too well.
Anyway, I ended up taking Betsy into the vet where they decided that they think she had a very early UTI. When I brought her back to my house, her and Puppy got to play around a bit until Craig was able to come and pick up Miss Boo Bop and her meds. Her and Puppy ran and chased and chased and ran. I believe that in light of the circumstances, they had quite the fun little day!
Puppy and I are hoping she visits again sometime but this time we hope it doesn’t include a visit to the vet.
