Tummy Ache!

So after our trip to the park last week Ace started having really bad gas...
and when I say bad gas...I mean BAD. Like nothing I have ever smelled before...haha
When we put our heads together and a little googling action, we remembered that Ace had drank out of the river that he was playing in. We had tried to stop him, but it was too late!

He was fine until the evening when the gas started.
*Ow Ma, my tummy hurts*

Poor little guy. He barely touched his dinner (which never happens) and he had a bit of the *runs*...eek!

It was a very different and unique experience when it was time for bed and I walked into our room and had to open a window it was so smelly! Aw Ace...
I figured if he seemed to be getting worse or it didn't clear up soon enough we would call the vet. Luckily it cleared up after just a day and a lot of CLEAN water drinking!
Online it said that if the water isn't moving (and even if it is) there can be bacteria that can make us sick! ;(
We will most Certainly be going back to the park, but we are going to be REALLY careful to not let Ace drink the water!

Ace is back in business!
*Ma, you better not blog about this...*

We also wanted to let you know about our newest blogger friend...another MINI AUSSIE! yay!!!


  1. I'm so glad that Ace is feeling better. I had a bad tummy myself yesterday. We don't really know why, but it's all better today. Tell him not to feel bad about your blogging about it. It happens to all of us once in a while.

    wags, Lola

  2. Ace, I'm glad you're feeling better! I know that kind of thing is no fun. Hopefully your mom or dad can take some of your own water for you next time and remind you to drink that, instead. I know it's hard to remember these things, though! Also, your mom will probably find much more embarrassin things to blog about in the future, so don't feel too bad!


  3. Aw Thanks you guys!
    haha even after getting a drink from the watering station and drinking some of my water bottle the little guy just couldn't resist some *delicious* stagnant water haha! I hope he learned his lesson!!

  4. Oh, we're so glad that Ace is feeling better and the gas is cleared now : )

    Be aware of the stagnant water, Ace. Drink the water that your mom brings along, ok. Be good so you won't have the tummy ache again.

  5. Poor baby, we are very glad you are feeling better now.
    Wags, Dip Bridge and Elliot xx

  6. Ace - you gotta learn to be careful! Glad to know you recovered quickly and didn't have to go to the vet!

  7. Hi Ace and thank you for visiting our blog! We are looking forward to being friends with you, you're such a cutie!!

    Sorry to hear about your gas situation, but we're so glad that you're feeling better now!

    Waggles & Chi kisses, Chewy & Lilibell
