Ralphie Springs a Leak...


(Mother - Dont read this)

So, last night, my precious Ralphie and I were snuggling up on the couch. He was fast asleep and snoring. Julie walked into the room and Ralphie sprung up , and when he did , my arm was wet and stinky. I knew, right away, he had some anal gland leakage. Erik tries to deny that this problem really exists and he thinks I am making it up, but my nose and I assure you, this is for real. Ralphie has a very sensitive stomach, and sometimes he has issues back there. I am sure the Holidays brought it on, b/c he had some human food and what not.
I share this story, in all its gross glory, because People are not always aware of this with their doggles and it is good knowledge to have.
The 1st time this ever happened, we were still living in Birmingham, and Erik had worked that night. He called me on his way home, and I tell him that Ralphie is sick, something is wrong with him b/c he peed in the bed, several times, while I was in the shower, and he was acting funny. Erik responded to that statement, like he always does : " Laura, there is nothing wrong with the D Dog. Stop being paranoid, you are so crazy"... well I went to work and I got a horrified erik calling me like less than an hour later. He was holding Ralphie, and Ralphie leaked on HIM! ha so all of a sudden, now, he feels that Ralphie is sick and wants to know what to do! Thus our vet trip and $200 discovery of the Anal Glands.
Now to spare writing out all the gross details, I wil provide you with an educational article that you can read for yourself elsewhere... there is even a little diagram.. HA
