This evening, my sweet little Magnolia had a seizure. This was not her first, but it was very scary. I started timing it,and it lasted over 6 minutes. I just sat and held her and tried to stay calm as she got through it.
Magnolia has now had 4 seizures in her life. My vet does not seem to be overly alarmed. His mother has a dog that has a seizure every Christmas day. Isn't that crazy. He told me that dogs are so effected by the energy around them. When i took Magnolia in to be checked out after her first, he said that it had to be the energy level of the people around her that helped to cause it. Her first one took place during the kick-off of the Alabama-Texas national championship game. Well, as a die hard Alabama fan I could see that could have cause it. There was a house full of Bama fans all pumped up for the game.
The next two, also came at times when there was a good bit of stress going on around her. But, I have no explanation for the one today. I was just watching television and all of a sudden, she made her way across the sofa to me crying. And then it began. Tomorrow we will be at the vet to get her checked out. She seemed fine but tired after it was all over. Even Ruby knew something was different. She went and sat next to Magnolia while she was resting. This never happens because Ruby is scared of Magnolia. Magnolia, is a typical, territorial long haired Chihuahua, and will sometimes stalk Ruby. She recognizes that Ruby is so passive and will take advantage of it.Here they are together.
Oh, and not to leave Jack out, here he is, fat, happy and snoring.
Well, now it is 2:00 am. And I am exhausted, so I am headed to bed.
