I'm stuck in Quarantine!

WARNING WARNING! THE SHAR PEI WHOSE BLOG YOU'RE READING IS INFECTED WITH KENNEL COUGH. APPROACH AT YOUR OWN RISK!Yeah, that's me. Huge pei sigh. I've been coughing and gaging for the last two days and Mommy and Daddy were worried so we went to see Dr. Dunning at the Vet Hospital (and gave her my blog address. Hi Dr. Dunning!). The lovely vet tech heard me come in, I was coughing, and she said That sounds like Kennel Cough and I was put in semi-isolation.

I wasn't listening too closely, I was kind of busy coughing, but I think they told Mommy it's a different kind of kennel cough from the one I got a vaccination for. It's apparently been cropping up in this area for the last few years.

I almost didn't go to Daddy's friends birthday party today. But Mommy called them and told them I was sick and they said come anyway. There was only one other dog there and we stayed away from each other. But you'll see, Daddy made everyone aware that I was sick. It's ok. I slept a lot. I was tired, and it was nice to sleep knowing I was surrounded by lots of people; and I was outside the whole time! Only some of it in the sun though. Mommy made sure to keep me mostly in the shade.

So I'm on antibiotics for the next 14 days. Hopefully that will clear it up. I've kind of stopped coughing, so that's good. I was sneezing a lot earlier. Now I'm just tired. I'm going to nap some more.

Sniff ya later.

G'day Bolo

Dude - this means you are able to sleep as much as you want! Cool! :-)

I hope you get better soon.



Willow the Black Dale said... Bolo you can't be sick! You can't have the sick cooties. Who gave those thingys to you?

Of course you had to get the new kind. The rare kind. That is because you are special and special boys get the special cooties!

I too would be around you. I am not afraid of those germs.

I didn't know there were TWO kinds of kennel cough! Do they have a vaccine for this one?? Gee, hope the anti-biotics kick in soon. It's awful to feel bad. We're sending beagle hugs.

Do you realize your quarantine sign implies that you're radioactive as well as contagious?

How annoying to get the kennel cough even after they made you get a shot for it and all. Plus you are in lock down! Poor Bolo! Hope those antibiotics work fast.
