The trials of last night

Tally and I did not have a great night last night. She peed on the carpet and then a bit later she threw up again. I spent from about 1 AM to what ever time I woke up sleeping on the couch with her. I'm so very tired right now.

Her itching and licking is getting me a bit worried. It's getting worse. I don't know what to do.

Right now she has huddled herself into her crate and is laying down. She hasn't gone in there for more than a second the entire time I've had her. I wonder if she's finally starting to adjust to being with me and the adjustment isn't going well. Why else would she have peed last night and now be huddled up in her crate? Am I over analyzing?

I just don't know what to do to make it better. We went on a nice long walk this morning. I've been giving her salmon oil in her food. I've been giving her filtered water because I heard that can be better for her skin. I bought oatmeal shampoo which is supposed to be calming for itchy skin.

What else is a doggie mommy to do?

I'm sorry that Tally's still sick.

Is she a nervous dog? Maybe she just needs more time to adjust to the change. I don't know what her past was like with her former situation; maybe it will take her awhile to get used to being in a safe, loving environment.

Otherwise, a call to a vet can't hurt.
