Thursday, Day 7

I woke up at 5am to find Chance struggling to breath. The problem was the congestion in his nose, not his lungs. I wiped his nose a bit and he got better, so I went back to sleep. I stopped by the store this morning to get a baby nasal aspirator. You can guess how much the dogs love that.

When I got back from the store, Hope had climbed up to the 3rd step. I don't know why she likes that step so much, but I have found her there at least 3 times.

I made eggs for breakfast and offered them some. They were not too thrilled. I am cooking a chicken for them since that is all Hope has eaten on her own. It probably cheaper than dog food since the whole chicken is just over $3.

Chance seems to be doing a bit better. He got up to get a drink of water. While he was up, I called him and he came to me. I pet him a lot, them he proceeded to pee on my floor. At least he was on tile. After showing him the potty pad and cleaning up the mess, I called him again. He came again. He must be feeling better.

I have almost gotten my kids to call the dogs Hope and Chance instead of Hoop and Chan. A few more days and they should have the names down.....

I really feel that Chance is coming back to us. He has started being playful towards Hope. I don't think she is too happy about that. The puppy playfulness peeks through at times. I am still shocked as to how fast distemper changed their lives. They used to be crazy puppies who were always going crazy and getting into trouble, but now they mainly just sit or sleep on a mat.

Hope ate about 1/4 of a drumstick worth of chicken. Hopefully she will eat more later......

I called the vet and he seemed somewhat happy about Chance's recovery. He was still not too happy about Hope's condition. He said for me to continue the antibiotics until they are 75% better.
