My Diagnosis


Hello! This post has to be quick, because I have to post it before my sister starts complaining that I'm hogging the computer.
Ok, you all know that a few weeks ago (actually, in the end of November) I got sick, trying to cough something up and all. Well, it was better for awhile because I was eating special food and pills, but lately it got worse again. I kept on coughing, and every time I tried to run I had to stop and cough! My mom took me to the vet on Monday, and he diagnosed me with Kennel Cough. I did get a shot against kennel cough this year (its a cough I can get from other doggies at the kennel, obviously) but I got it anyway. The picture is just to fill some empty space, it's of me lying on the floor at the vets. Anyway, I got new antibiotics for it, and the special food again, because my mom told the vet that while I ate the food I didn't cough, and he said maybe it was because of my food (although, I love my Alpo) so he gave us the food to see if it helps. So, I'm feeling MUCH better, and the best of all is, I still get to eat treats! The first time I was sick I wasn't allowed to eat treats, but I can now, and I still have treats from Gregor, and Gypsy's owners, and my human sis.......Mmm-mmm good. Have a great weekend everyone!

I see what you mean about the other thing too. Mellimouse can be pretty grumby sometimes. Allen says that he is now terrified of leaveing comments on her blog. (Don't tell her I said this)
