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.
