  5. I miss the Midwest rain. The people I do not miss. Just miss the rain. The humidity can suck it, I don’t miss that either.

  13. I may have found a dog sitter for my trip, just waiting for her to call back and let me know when she can swing by to get the details and meet Piper.  

    Piper is doing 110% better today.  No more warm nose.  Meds appeared to have helped a great deal.  

  14. Ugh.

    I took Piper to the vet. She’s got a mean case of kennel cough. The vet put her on steroids and antibiotics, $151 worth of controlled substances.

    And it appears I’m going to have to cancel my trip to the lake and take the hit on a $700 plane ticket, because she’s not allowed around other dogs.

    Le sigh. Anyone know of a great house / dog sitter in the Central Valley willing to medicate my dog for two weeks? I’d pay exactly what I would have paid the kennel where she picked up this nasty virus.

  15. A few weeks ago I dropped piper off at doggie day care while I was out of town. I thought I liked the place. Piper got to play in the pool. Got doggie ice cream. Got to watch tv. Etc. But she came home with terrible sneezing and coughing. I thought nothing of it , chaulked it up to allergies. Come to find out she got kennel cough from the kennel.

    Piper is up to date on all her shots.

    Now I have to talk to the kennel because someone isn’t taking the proper precautions or drying her off after pool time or something. And I’m having big apprehensions about leaving her there for almost 2 weeks while I’m out of town.

    I’m paying nearly $80 a day for her to be taken well care of and I’m not seeing that at this point.

    I’ll refrain from posting the kennels name because I want to see how they respond tomorrow when I go in to talk to them about the situation.

    But hell, how can I not be upset when my baby just wants to be held and cuddle even more so than normal.
