Sick Pup

I've got a sick pup on my hands.

This was from a rare moment when he was actually tuckered out from playing.  You wouldn't know it from the way he is acting, but little man is pretty sick.

Ever since returning from our trip to Mississippi, Beauford has had a nasty cough, and it has only gotten worse.  Turns out, he has severe kennel cough (essentially bronchitis) and was headed towards pneumonia.  The doctor said it is much like how the flu is for humans - some people just have mild symptoms while others are completely wiped out.  Unfortunately, Beauford was on the wiped out side.   He has had the immunization shot that prevents kennel cough, but the vet also informed me, much like the flu shot, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.

He is loaded up on drugs now, and the vet said he should be back to his old self in less than a week.  Poor little fella!
