Sick-o Steve-o

by Valerie Barker


On Thursday, Steve got sick at day camp and had to be taken out of the play room and put in a kennel for the rest of the day. His poops were really yucky. When we got home, Steve didn't get supper, but he still had two more yucky poops. So Mom got out her vet book and decided that Steve needed some Pepto. It was so smelly, but pink, so I wanted some, but Mom said no. Dad took me outside while Mom gave it to Steve. Now, whenever Steve and I get separated, we have to wrestle each other the next time we see each other. So after Steve took his medicine and Dad let me in, of course we wrestled. During the wrestling, Steve got Pepto on my ear!!! Ewww, gross! He must have still had some in his mouth. So now my pretty white ear fur is pink! Mom can't get it off either, of course, I won't sit still for her to scrub my ear.

I'm rolling my eyes at Steve in that picture because I can't believe he put his medicine on my ear. In case you can't see the pepto, here's a close up. You can't see it very well in this picture either, but I tried.Oh, and if you care about Steve, in my time of ear-pinkness, he's doing much better. He didn't have any more yucky bouts after he got the medicine.
