The term "sick as a dog"

You know the term "sick as a dog"? Well, the way I have been feeling for the last week makes me wonder if there has EVER been a dog that ever got that sick? And anyway, have you seen many sick dogs in your lifetime? I think they are generally healthy. 
Anyway, I am glad to report that I can finally see a light at the end of the tunnel... I still bark (like a dog) at times with this cold, but I am finally-slowly, mind you-almost feeling human! I went to work yesterday, since being off from work starting last Wednesday, and can I tell you, I was proud that I hung in there...but could there have EVER been a longer day in my life? The minutes felt like hours to me. I dragged myself out to my car and was so grateful when I drove up to my house. I went right up to my bed and laid down completely exhausted.
I am only hoping and praying that today goes better. So, whoever came up with that term, "sick as a dog", I wonder what dog or dogs you encountered. Or maybe they were your dogs and you fed them pure chocolate every day of their lives (a known fact is that chocolate makes dogs sick).
Anyway, I don't want to be sick "as any animal", let alone a person anymore!

I'm sorry you've been so sick, although that dog is very cute. Hope today is a better day!

I just hate seeing you so sick and I'm really glad you said today wasn't as bad as yesterday . . . a little improvement each day. It's so nice having you back at work.
