Sick Puppies And No Sleep

I'm still here.  I've been so busy lately with my sick puppies and dogs.  Every day I cook special meals for my old cocker spaniel and mix up water, formula, and puppy chow for the puppies.  My old dog was doing well and then last night he had an accident in my bedroom at midnight.  That was not a nice way to wake up.  Luckily I have tile in my bedroom but still.

The puppies seem to have moved from kennel cough on to bronchitus or something.  They were getting better and then plateaued and could not get over the cough and runny nose.  I was able to take one puppy to the vet today and they gave me more of the medicine that I was giving them except in an easier to give liquid.  I sure hope they get better fast because they have learned how to escape their outdoor enclosure and prefer to sleep in my bathroom.  That would be ok except for the pitiful little puppy coughs that wake me up.  I got out the big box fan last night to drown out the noise.  I hope I get a better night's sleep tonight.
