Gross, yuck, nasty..

Recommended Posts

OMG you guys I'm totally freaking out and obsessing.

 

Disclaimer: If you haven't ate breakfast yet, you might not want to read this.. If your pregnant and feeling nauseas, you might not want to read this..

 

So you all know I foster dogs... Currently we are fostering a senior dog (8-10 yrs old) great dog, friendly, will make someone really happy one day. A couple days ago we notice he (Lenny) had worms in his poo, so we called the vet and made an appointment (today actually is his appointment,,,, THANK GOD) to get him up to date on his shots and be put on a de-wormer med. Ok no dig deal right? **WRONG**

 

So last night Cain was being lazy and didn't want to put Lenny in his crate for bed, you see Lenny jumped on the bed and wanted to sleep at our feet, Cain thought it was cute, and since Lenny is house trained he figured "why not" So me being the loving wife that I' am I said "fine, but if he jumps out of the bed at night, your getting up and putting him in his crate" Well all was fine through out the night.. Dum dum dum.... UNTIL I went to make the bed this morning... I noticed at least 30, what appeared to be "rice" all over the foot of our bed onto of my comforter.. I yell for Cain (who just stepped out of the shower) and said "what the hell is that" They rice wasn't moving so that put me a little at ease.. Then I said "are those his worms?" Cain said "I don't know, their not moving" SO at that very second I took all the bedding off my bed and threw them in the washer, and I fully plan on washing them at least 2 more times...... So as I start to obsess over it, I start to think that "I need to vacuum the house", "I need to shampoo all the carpet", and "I need to vacuum and shampoo our sofa" All I can picture is rice all over my house where he played, where he laid down on the couch, thinking about every where he has been over since we picked him up....

 

Well of course today isn't the weekend and I have to go to work, so I'm sitting here, reading everything that can be read on the internet,, now I'm not only freaking out about rice all over my house, but I'm also thinking about "what if my boys (dogs and cat) ate the rice and now they are infected" I seriously want to go home and clean my house from top to bottom, but then what do I do with Lenny afterwards? I mean what if he drips out this rice more? ........I feel dirty........ Do I keep him crated until they are dead? but that is mean, how can I do that to him..... I have had many fosters in my house, I have had them puke, pee, they have had explosive diarrhea in my house, yet this is by far the worst thing I had to deal with.. I'm totally grossed out.... Oh and to top it off, guess what I was going to have for lunch today? Left over Thai food.. Yeah that isn't going to happen now..

Yeah that's pretty gross. So are they not moving because they are dead? And do they just fall out when they are dead? Honey had never had worms so I don't know anything about them.

Yes that is pretty gross, but it's ok. Better than fleas or ticks, righthuh.gif? I had a cat as a kid and that is how we found out he had worms. Exactly what happen to you, happened to me..or my mom I should say since she was the one making my bed then. She saw the lil "rice" looking things and found out what they were. Anyway, it's def treatable and it's a blessing i disguise, b/c if he didnt sleep there you might not have noticed it for a while, ya know?

 

Order a pizza tonight, hahaha!

I have no clue.. I'm asking everyone right now that has/had pets to see if they can tell me.. I've read some nasty sh*t online and it's making me feel like I want to throw up.. I seriously have issues with obsessing over stuff to much.. lol

This will sound so nasty...but after we found out Toby (may he rest in peace, ha) had worms, we took notice to these lil tiny white things hanging out his butt, moving and crawling up his tail (almost puked there) they were the worms. They come out and crawl and I guess die after time, but they dry up or soemthing, not positive.

Ew, I haven't any experience with worms either, so I don't know if that's normal or what to do in the mean time. I'll search the web and see what info I can find...

 

Give a call to the vet too and ask.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
