Of course, when we got home they were all excited. Valentine started making this hacking noise from deep in her chest...DH said that she does this when she gets really over-tired. In any case, it stopped after a while, but then I heard it later on when he was upstairs watching television. Valentine came downstairs with me and fell asleep and was fine all night.
This morning when I woke up she came over to me in bed to be petted; when I started petting her she began hacking again, and then acted as if she was trying to bring something up that was caught in her throat. This lasted more than a few minutes...I got out of bed and went downstairs with her to get her some water - which of course she wouldn't drink. After about 15 minutes she was fine.
DH went out food shopping and came back a little while ago. He got ready to go outside in the yard to do some things and, of course, Valentine got excited again and started hacking a bit.
DH told me that yesterday when he was filling in the bare patches of lawn, Valentine ate a bit of top soil...which is nothing new. I'm thinking that maybe she might have an allergy?
I'm sorry that this is so long but I am, of course, freaking out right now. If it keeps happening I want DH to take her to the vet. And this week is my busiest week so I can't take another day off.....
