Puppy disease, Canine parvovirus…

Scout had been exposed, one of her sister has died, the other one got it but survived.

0723111907a Terri and Scouts two sisters

Scared would be an understatement for Mike right now. She is his heartthrob, she is his life, he loves her so much. I know to some she’s “just a dog” but to Mike, to us, she’s a huge part of our family so would you please, in your prayers today say a prayer for her and Mike.

We took a big chunk of our BWCA trip money and got her to the vet today and got her the 2nd series of shots ( we are 25 days behind so are hoping that she was still covered ) and the vet said she looks good but this is just day 5 of the 10 day incubation period so it’s hard to tell. She, the vet, told us what to look for so we’ll be on the look out the next few days. We are not looking at the glass half empty, she will be fine but there’s still the worry. I also took Wilbur because he was exposed X2 this weekend when the puppies came to visit so just to make sure, even though it’s a puppy disease adult dogs can get it but rarely, we got him his shot too.

I think our family has had enough stress this summer. We don’t/can’t handle a whole bunch more.

I hope that your day is going grand and that life is treating you with respect, love and lots of blessings. Take care my friends and thank you for your prayers.

I'm sorry to hear this, Julie. I will be remembering all of you in my prayers. Our pets are part of our family too and I know how it feels to lose one. My thoughts are with you.

(((hugs))) and Prayers.... Anyone who thinks a dog is just a dog is lacking compassion for living life if you ask me. Hoping the best for your little one!!

Thanks for the comment/update. I think you're at a very, very good weight now, and with your activity, a fit weight. Muscle and leaner overall. Holding on sounds great, rather than hounding after particular numbers. Holding on and staying on top, that's a whole nother challenge.

As far as I'm concerned, you're a P6 success. You won. pats on the back, sweetie.
