It has been terrible, awful, no good, very bad week.
Max, our new puppy, is very sick. He was taken to the vet on Tuesday, where the vet told us that he had contracted the parvovirus. While the sickness can prove to be lethal, the vet has hopes for him pulling through. He's still not eating, but he is drinking some water and she seems to think that he is on the mend.
While we are hoping, praying, and crossing our fingers, we will be scrubbing down the house today. Apparently, parvo, while not extremely common, is extremely contagious for dogs. The entire house and yard needs to be scrubbed down to get rid of the virus that he spread around the house while he was here.
Also, if you have any advice for protecting against parvo, I would appreciate it.
So, today is cleaning and then the rest of the weekend is revising with a small break for a family grill-out at my parents. If we can get Max back this weekend, it will be a great time.
