I'm home

Hi everyone. Before I give you my update, I'd just like to thank EVERYONE for all their concern and well wishes. It was so nice and comforting. My mom read me every single one.

Now, shortly after my mom updated that I was in the hospital, she got a call from the vet and had to come pick me up. I was super unhappy that mom and dad left... so I ripped out my IV, flipped my ecollar and busted out of my crate. So Ms. Nice Vet Lady told mom I was too stressed and I'd be better at home bc she was afraid I would get worse if I was stressed. Finally, people start listening to the Corbin!

But, I'm not going to sugar coat it, friends... I'm still in quite a bit of pain. I've been drinking water with some chicken broth bc mom said I'll have to go back to the vet if I don't. I tried eating a bit of chicken and rice this morning, so as long as that stays down, I can have some more later.

Thanks again for caring so much about me... I'm going to go take a nap on the couch.


And, PS... please go vote for me to be Mayzie's date for the. Valentine's dance! What could make a guy feel better than knowing he had a dance with a beautiful brindle gal to look forward too?!


  1. Oh man Corbin
    At least they got your message. Now eat your chicken and stay home please.

  2. Sometimes the best medicine (and care) is at home - get better soon, Corbin! Turk wants to win that date with Mayzie fair and square, not by default because you are too sick to take her! :)

  3. Corbin, we are so glad you are home, but that might not have been the best way to get their attention. We thinks everyone can heal better at home when they get lots of mommy snuggles. We continue to send you healing drool for you. One thing our Momma found out when Cleo had this, the vet suggested giving her little pieces of white bread between meals to help with acid build up. If you see Corbin licking the floor or the air it may because he has acid build up from the tummy trobules. The bread really seems to help with the acids and stuffs. But you might want to check with your vet first to be sure it is okay. Sniffs, The HoundDogs

  4. Im so sorry to hear this, your mom is the best caretaker ever though. Please drink!

  5. Corbin, we are so sorry that you are still in so much pain, butt we agree with you - home is the best place to be. We continue to have our paws crossed for your speedy recovery - except when we take our walk n a little while, we'll have to uncross them then, butt we'll be thinking about you and sending strong rottie healing vibes.

    Your pals,

    -Bart and Ruby

  6. I hope you get lots of rest and feel better!

  7. Oh CORBIN... I know just how you must have felt at the VET place.. hurtin and NOT havin your Mom to Ease it fur you.
    I am sooooooo very much sorry that this has happened to you. I have my Paws Crossed soooooo tight that I can hardly move.
    You take care buddy.. you gotta be better SOON. You just gotta.

  8. Oh, Corbin, I'm SO glad you're home but I'm sorry you still have the sickies. Now behave for your momma and get lotsa rest and drink that chicken broth, okay? I want you to get all better real, real soon.

    Concerned wiggles & wags,

  23. We still have our paws crossed for you, Corbin. Even though Jed is also entered for a date with Miss Mayzie, we're gonna go vote for you just so you'll be better sooner.

    We're sure your vet has already told your mom about pancreatitis, but a LOW FAT, limited protein diet is essential. Abby gets Ranitidine before each meal, Pepto pills and prednisone as necessary. We eat 99% fat-free grilled chicken mixed with our low-fat kibble. K's mom cooks for her from scratch, after she got a customized diet made by a veterinary dietician.

    Symptoms of distress include: sticking your fanny up in the air in what looks like an inappropriate play bow, which relieves pressure on the pancreas; eating grass or inappropriate things in the house - furniture, dust bunnies, scraps of paper, etc.; and, of course, vomiting.

    If you can't keep fluids down, your mom can learn from your vet how to give you an IV at home where she can sit with you while it drips in, to rehydrate you. It's not fun, but it can be done.

    We're keeping our paws crossed for you, dude. And Abby is sending special Member of the Pancreatitis Club get well soon vibes your way.

    Jed & Abby

  24. Corbin,

    We is all very worried 'bouts you but your sweet momma and dad will take such good care of you so you will get better real soon. Remember to drink and eat and get your rest. Extra boxer puppy prayers are on da way and won't stop until you is all better.

    Woofs and Licks,
    Maggie Mae and Max

    PeeS Mom sends you a big hug and kiss

  25. So glad you are home. We are still keeping our paws crossed for you

    Stop on by for a visit

  26. That's scary stuff! I'm glad you got to go home, at least. Feel better soon!

  27. Stay strong, Corbin! I hope being at home gives you the morale boost you need to start feeling better.

  28. Oh Corbin I sure hope you are feeling better soon. This all sounds very scary and I'm glad your Momma listened to her gut. I know when i was a wee pup wif kennel cough Momma added pedialite to my drinking water, maybe you can ask your vet about that. Please get better soon, too many of us aren't at our best right now.

    woof - Tucker

  29. Corbin! What the heck? I am very worried about you and I know that you are a tough guy and all but I think your mom is worried too. I hope you are feeling better soon. I can't blame you for wanting to break out of the hospital, but that means you need to do exactly what mom says, OK?


  30. So glad you are home Corbin. Wish you could have given my Lily instructions on how to escape
    Benny & Lily

  31. Hi Corbin,

    Sorry I didn't meet you when you were feeling better. I know you will back better than ever very soon. We are praying for you and your humans.

    Get Well,

  32. Corbin - please don't rip out IVs or bust out of crates! I'm glad that you're home, and I hope that you keep getting better. Drink that chicken broth because staying hydrated is the key to staying out the hospital. We know after K's pancreatitis bouts.

    Take care, Corbin. We'll be thinking of you.

  33. Now Corbin, you be a good boy or we will have to come all that way and give you a stern talking to! We are glad you are home though and send you lots of hugs and kisses and slobber. Take care studly. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  34. Oh Corbin, I get stressed at the vet, too - though I am not strong or big enough to bust out of my crate! Good for you, buddy! My paws are crossed so tight for you! Keep eating and just try and rest.

    Your pal, Pip

  35. Get lots of rest and feel better soon!


  36. Corbin please rest and get well.

    licks and sniffs Sasha

  37. Take care of yourself Corbin. 24 Paws crossed for you. <3

  38. When my angel brother Tucker had his pan-cre-a-titus mom remembers part of it was overs a long holiday weekend. She said Tucker was just like you. He wouldn't have any of that staying at the vet nonsense so mom had to bring him home too! She said that while he was home she had to give him his IV fluids AND his shots all by herself!! She hated doing it but says Tucker was such a good patient and he know that she was helping him to get the betterments. So you be good for your momma Corbin, listen to her, take your medicines (even if they taste yuckies) and eat your foodables so you can get back to being your ol' handsome self!!

    Sending you buckets of love - HoneyBuzz

  39. OH Corbin! Dude, please don't waste the crackery on the vets or the crates... it's not worth it. Keep the crackery low for a while. Cuz we need you, at full-cracker strength. K?
