Rogue to the rescue

Post by Joxgirl »

Rogue was barking that bark I recognize when she needs me for something. Not her “take a break” or feed me bark. Not her bark for I’m “I’m telling you, move over cause I’m joining you on the bed” bark. I was sleeping during the day since I work nights. My husband was home and responded to Rogue with “fooey” rather than learn her bark tones or see what she wants. In his defense he didn’t want her to wake me. Like any mother, I hear her, even when she has the most quietest whimpers. ANYWAY, I stumble down the hall to see what Rogue needs just as my husband meets me at the kitchen. It was our Maltipoo having a seizure. I was impressed.
So I have the Smartest Dutchie. :DSorange:

Oh, no, I hope your baby is ok. Seizures suck, whether human or dog.

It is pretty smart to be able to identify the problem, then know how to respond.

Tell us about yourself: Accidentally adopting a Dutch Shepherd when I had no idea about the breed led me to research and act on all of his needs. This site was a key component to making things right for Radar, so when the original owner was calling it quits, I stepped in to keep the site running.

Thank you. Charlie is ok. We had to increase his medication though.

Hasn’t alerted me to the seizure activity’s before. She will let me know if our other two dogs need to go outside or come in....but not every time. :DSangel:
