Have you ever seen a sadder little face?

poorplumplum.jpgI haven't.

Plum Plum is still feeling under the weather and on top of the stomach problems her allergies have flared again.

It's back to square one with diet changes trying to figure out the triggers. I now have her on a bland white rice and banana diet until the colitis gets under control.

I know she looks pretty cushy perched on my lap with her plum colored heart blankie...but she doesn't sit still for long. The allergies make her itch herself raw until she bleeds, despite the Benadryl every 4 hours, medicated baths 2x a week, and being diligent with hypoallergenic everything that she comes in contact with in my house. I have threatened the cone if she does not stop.

We currently have her on medical hold which means she'll be with me for a while longer. Only problem is the longer she is here, the more attached we both get to one another.

I now know for certain that I will be unable to peel myself out of bed for a week when she goes.

Aw - poor Plum Plum. Does the money donated through your blog go specifically to Plum?

Does the money donated through your blog go specifically to Plum?

Yes, 100%.

Specifically, Plum's personal chip in site is here: http://curlytailpugrescue.chipin.com/plum.

You just click the orange "Chip In" button and donate via Paypal. The money goes directly into our pug rescue fund to offset Plum's medical bills.

She's not going anywhere!!! That's your new baby! :)
By the way, I showed my Mom the Adopt a Pug portion of our site last night and she is totally 100% in love with Bebe - who has her now?
Sending big hugs and kisses to poor little Plum!

Poor Plum! I feel so bad for her. I am sending you an e-mail so be looking for it. Hope Plum feels better soon. She is in very capable hands.

Plum is precious. She has such a sweet face!

I have a Boston Terrier, with allergy issues herself - and sometimes when the Benadryl isn't enough for the itchies, we use Atarax, it seems to help more effectively in those instances. Not sure if it might be an option for Plum. I hope she is feeling better soon!
