Sensitive Soul

We've been fairly careful to keep the scarier parts of the sick dog care away from Sasha (i.e. those involving needles). After all, KerryGirl is one of his good buddies. Someone who he comes home to play tag and catch with and who happily helps him sock-skijorn around the house. And he's a sensitive little boy who has a dread of the pointy metal objects.

However, he seems to have gotten the idea that this time is different anyway.

He's been kind of obsessed lately in trying to make sure she's happy and taken care of. He asks semi-obsessively where she is wehn she is out of sight and where her dragon toy (he picked it out for her 7th birthday) is. He makes certain she has her toy, the good dog bed, a blanket if he thinks she's cold, and lots of gentle love.

Last night he started crying when I had to give her some pills.

I feel so bad for him.

Awww. He's such a sweetie. I hope that she gets better soon for everyone's sake.
