bdot, pets, Marlow



Marlow our new puppy has been diagnosed with Parvovirus. Without treatment 80 percent or more of dogs with Parvo die. He has a 50 percent chance of survival and there is a chance he can catch it again. Joy! I was already concerned about the cost of keeping a dog without any issues. There is training, tons of shots, examinations, new household things to buyโ€ฆ I was already figuring it would be costly. Nowโ€ฆ it is going into the extreme. Shit luck. These are the cards we have been dealt and they are no face, no trump, no ace for sure. Money asideโ€ฆ This is B.โ€™s third dogโ€ฆ all three have had serious complications of some sort. I have not met anyone who loves animals more than B. (well maybe my sister). Someone is seriously jerking her chain. To you I offer my biggest finger.

For me it is just frustration bred out of many thingsโ€ฆ my lack of dog knowledgeโ€ฆ there is a whole dog vernacular I completely donโ€™t understand. Iโ€™m away from the situation since I also have a cat I (which I feel Iโ€™ve been neglecting) have to care for and other obligations at *home*. And financially it couldnโ€™t come at a worse time. Oh, and of course my new pet is in hospital with IV tubes stuck in him, vomiting and crapping his body out as a virus tries to dehydrate and kill him. Hmm, might explain why my head is throbbing.
