    Default One week update for Loki

    Let me start off by saying that we are back in business and back to normal. We have had no issues since last weeks episode!!!! He came to work with me Tuesday- Friday last week and I was home with him all weekend, it wasn't until Sunday when we left him for the first time and it was only to go to lunch with Sean's family. We came home to find him waiting patiently for us by the front door. I was so anxious that he was going to be ok that the drive home seemed like it took forever. We did make quite a few changes in hope that whatever that was never happens again! We started by moving his house to the railing so he can see the door where we come in at, we put a doggie bed down by the front door so if he is waiting for us down there he doesn't have to lay on the cold tile, we started leaving him a 1/2 cup of food to eat if he decides that he is hungry (which twice now he has waited to eat till I got home), he has always had a radio on but we turned it down so that he can hear us or the garage door when we come in so he doesn't get startled and I made him a pillow pyramid so he can look out the window from the couch to see us when we pull in. Yesterday was the first full day home alone and he was perfectly fine when I came in all the anxiousness driving home was really for nothing at the end of the day. That 45 seconds to a minute that the episode lasted really messed with me and apparently still does especially since we still don't know what "it" was. Tomorrow will be his first long day home alone so fingers and paws crossed that all our precautions help him to be more comfortable at home work

    Glad to hear Loki is feeling better. Keep us updated.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Great job mama hopefully it will never happen again. Loki does remind me of Fergus. Their facial marking is almost the same. Sooooo cute.

    It's not silly to us either, Nicole. Something triggered that terrible, scary episode,
    hopefully it will never happen again but not knowing what caused it...sucks.

    You have been traumatized, as we all would be, be loving & kind to yourself as you
    would be to a friend. The things you've done for Loki to be comfortable & feel safe
    really touch my heart...you're a GREAT MOM! Keeping y'all in prayer, GOD bless.

    RIP beloved boy.

    ​I get that same feeling too, am thinking low blood sugar that particular day may have contributed.

    It went good! He was waiting at the front door when I got home happy as can be no signs that anything happened when I was gone so that is a plus!
