Hana got sick yesterday and we had to take her up to the vetShe refused to walk and had to be carried up to the car.
It seems she injured her right hind leg, most probably when she played with Eva or when she barked when the garbage truck came. Somehow, she became very quiet and looked sad and miserable. She has loose bowels too which resulted in the digging and eating a lot of rubbish from the garden. Mainly the twigs, dried leaves and pebbles.

I gave her Bene-Bac after visiting the vet. She looked weak and stayed in the kitchen the whole day yesterday.

Hana had no appetite and that's the terrible thing. We all know that she loves food and if she doesn't eat anything, it means she's really ill. I tried to feed her and she ate a bit in the morning but she refused to eat at night. 
We didn't force her as we thought she needed a rest and it could be the leg injury and the upset stomach troubled her a lot. We prayed that she could get better the next day, at least, she'd jump at her food!
However, Hana isn't better today at all. She threw up whatever she had at midnight and refused to have her breakfast. Then, I tried to give her a bit of yoghurt thinking of her upset stomach, she threw everything up again after eating it. Oh, our poor Hana. It's so worrying now.
My husband and I are going to UK to visit our daughter there and stay with her during half term - we'll back in 2 weeks.
In the meantime, the 3 adults will be taken care of by my sister, and Eva will be staying in her house. I hope that this will be a good experience for Eva where she will learn even more with two older adult dogs whom she can hopefully play with, how to be in an unfamiliar place, etc. Eva will still be taken home often to see her mom, Mika and Laura, and to gently remind her that our home is still her home! We hope she doesn't forget her mom this way.

I will still blog once in a while, but it won't be about the daily adventures of Eva, unfortunately.
We'll be thinking of them everyday, but I know that they are in good hands.

I'm going to miss all these,

Poor Hana... hope she will be better soon. Try chicken soup for tummy upset. It's always good to have someone you can trust to look after the furkids.

Licks, hero

Get better soon Hana. I always give chicken & rice for upset tummies.

Safe travels to you and your husband, and enjoy your time with your daughter. You must miss her terribly. I bet Rosie has loved reading your blog, and being able to see Eva grow a little day by day cyberly (is that a word?).

Thanks, Sara. Rosie gets the latest news about her beloved 4 from the blog and I guess this is her must-visit blog nowadays(if not the most favourite one) ; )

She helps give her contributions too.

Sorry about Hana - I agree with the chicken and rice - it helps me when my stomach is hurting.

Have a safe trip and a good visit with Rosie. Try not to worry about the dogs - I'm sure they will be well taken care of!

Hi there Hana,

So sorry to hear that you're not feeling ok now. Do try your best to eat so you would not be so weak. Soup would be good. Maybe some broth and a little rice would help.

Have a good trip and we'll be here when you get back.

Do visit us when you're free.
