I have been thinking a lot about the dogs in my family. Remember when I wrote about King recently? (2-4-09) I found out Monday that King, the little black pit bull/ rottweiler mix that my nephew owns, had contracted Parvo virus. He was in the Vet hospital and was given a 50-50 chance of surviving. I was upset and so shocked because he had gotten all his puppy shots but not the booster shots yet. I was worried about Ace, my son's yellow dog, because he lives with King, and about Tank, another nephew's pit bull because King visits him regularly. (I wrote about him on 1-12-09 waiting patiently beside Amos to receive a treat-remember?)
Ace got another booster shot today and doesn't show any symptoms. The Vet said it is unlikely that Ace will get sick. Tank has only had rabies shots, so we are watching him. Having King so ill and the other dogs in danger felt almost as if I were worrying about a human family member. Needless to say, I have been praying.
The good news is that King has improved enough that he gets to go home today-a miracle!
