The Hammer was sick. She was crying the way dogs do when they are in pain.
I took her to the vet. The vet she does not like. The Hammer was real good to the vet this time because she knew she needed help getting better. Lay there in the vet room let the vet rub her belly and everything.
She is better now.
I am relieved.
I am hoping for several more years with my big old dog.
