Kennel Cough

We have never had any problems before. It turns out that it takes a few days for Kennel Cough to appear. Alexis has been here for 7 days now, and she started coughing yesterday morning. Now I am going to catch it, I started coughing this morning. We will get medicine to take, I hope its the kind of pills that you take with peanut butter.

When we were westling today the stitches pulled out of the place where Alexis had a fatty tumor cut off her leg when she went to the vet. Now we will have to go to the vet tomorrow and get her stitches replaced, but we can't go in the clinic with her coughing, Kennel Cough is very contagious. So we don't know what will happen. Alexis was just starting to feel better and she was running more as the new pills helped her knees feel better.

The humans locked me out of the house for most of the day today. If I go in the pool quietly enough, they don't know I am wet util I am in the house. If I make noise when I swim they rush to shut the dog door before I can sneak in to dry off on the couch.

I will let you know how we do with our cough.

  1. Dear Mogley and Alexis,

    I, Cheyanne, am so sorry that you have KC.

    Try to get some rest and do whatever the humans say will make you feel better.

    Your humans are very smart humans. I can tell they love you lots and lots!

    Tail Wags and Woofs,

  2. Luke, the Golden from Jeannette, PA hopes that Alexis can get her stitches fixed and hopes that you all get over your kennel cough. Mogley, you didn't say anything about Bella... is she OK ?

    Wishing everyone the best,
