sick dog and super husband

^^ as cute as this picture is.....the scene in which i'm about describe wasn't so cute. ^^

 people say that having a dog or pet is great practice for being a parent someday. boy were they right! but don't get me wrong, being a dog mommy has been very rewarding but the other night was a disaster to remember. so here goes the story: 
i was sleeping. duh. it's what i do best. and the first thing that wakes me up is the sound of stephen scrubbing the carpet and in a panicky voice, "sadie, what's going on!?", "oh God, Sadie!". i look at my phone on my nightstand and it's 2:15 am. i am a good wife so i get out of bed to see what the heck is going on. my nose has been stuffy but it didn't take long to smell the aroma that was lingering in the apartment. i walk over to the kitchen where stephen was kneeling in front of her tring to get her to drink water. apparently sadie threw up and crapped in the apartment. i saw the panic on his face but then i saw sadie. she looked like one of those dirty sad and disgusting dogs you see on the streets. her beard was all wet and grimy and she looked so depressed and scared. she was certainly acting weird and sluggish. i started to worry and we didn't know what to do so we Google "dog threw up and diarrhea" and apparently learned that this is common for dogs. we sighed with relief but she still looked so sad. her beard had her throw up in it. ( sorry, tmi ) so we decided to give her a quick bath. mind you it's now 3:00am and we are both up giving sadie a bath and still freaking out. as we were giving her a bath i thought to myself...wow. we are giving our dog a bath at 3:00am. we have to wake up in 4 hours for work. we're going to be the best parents ever! well, granted having a baby is much harder then having a dog i can imagine, but still! i felt very proud of us. after we dried sadie off we both got back into bed. i was so proud of stephen. he had cleaned up the poo and throw up and was taking care of sadie on his own all before i even woke up. all i did was google something and then suggest to give her a bath. he was the one that woke up out of bed by the dog, cleaned it up and took care of her all without waking me up or making me worry. stephen is seriously the best husband in the world. i don't try to brag or anything but i honestly don't know how God blessed me with him. exasperated but happy it was over, we laid down next to each other and let out a huge sigh. i think we both had a proud moment that we would remember forever. we worked as a team and we took care of sadie. having sadie has brought us so much closer. we're taking care of this cute little living thing and it's amazing she's still alive! ha. i leaned over and kissed him and told him he'd be such a good dad someday. 
in the morning we checked on sadie and she seemed to be like her normal self. wagging her tail, bright eyed and all ready to play with the trillion toys she has. we still weren't sure so stephen checked on her on his lunch break. stephen dropped her off at my parents house during his lunch hour in case she had any more accidents. my mom is the best dog person ever so he knew sadie would have fun at "grandmas" house while we were at work. i just think thats so cute how stephen was still so worried about her and brought her over to my parents just to make sure she was looked after, after she had been so sick. fur daddy award! i love my husband and i love my dog. the end.
