Memphis has shots on Elvis' 78th Birthday

Tuesday, January 08, 2013



I had been sniggering at Memphis ever since he began drooling over these Jelly Shots. Little did he suspect what actual shot he would be having on Elvis' birthday. Memphis needed an vaccination upgrade so he could holiday at a boarding kennel (with a doggie salt water pool) while I go to the Elvis Festival.

Turned out that I was no longer laughing. It's been so very hot this week and yesterday Memphis greeted me by being sick at both ends and later refusing to go for walks. He would not eat or drink and looked so droopy and listless. I hardly slept last night from worry.

It's 24hrs later at 3:30am and I am exhausted from giving Memphis an hourly dosage of Hydralyte as prescribed by the vet. I also was instructed to cook Memphis a healthy dinner of chicken soup with rice. Thankfully the soup and electrolytes are working as Memphis is now interested in food and jumps up for a walk.

The forecast during the 5 day Elvis Festival is 35-42C (95-107F). OMG! Going to take a Memphis lesson - drink lots of liquids and eat lite. Alcohol and heat do not go well.

It will be a nice cold glass of water that I will raise to say Happy Birthday to Elvis.
