Because I know you’re incredibly interested in the inner workings of my dog’s bowels…

…Now Mia isn’t pooping at all. It has officially been three personally prepared meals and over 24 hours. HIGHLY unusual for my Olympic Pooper Pup. The vet says not to be concerned until 48 hours of pooplessness. I am trying to override my worst-case-scenario tendencies and abide by that. Still, all day I’ve been walking Mia around to try and get things moving… and no such luck.

To make it better, it just so happens the maintenance crew at my apartment complex aerated the grounds today. So as I walk Mia in the rain, our feet trample over the thousands of muddy plugs scattered across the lawns. And they mock me.
