Hello there puppies!
We are sorry to worry our friends with the lack of update in the past week. I am a little well now. We went to the vet last Monday PM to have a skin test, to which the results for mange turned out negative. A week before we also had a CBC done and the vet had also ruled out ehrlichiosis. The vet told me that I had some bacterial infection, which may have been developed from sleeping in moist areas.
As some of you may know, I sleep inside the room of my human brother whenever anyone is at home. But during times when he fails to close the doors, I make my way towards the nearest bathroom and sleep. My love for water often brings me to the laundry area or the bathroom, where there is a generous supply of water. .
During times when access to these places are unavailable, I simply topple over my water dish and lie on the puddle of water… i rest my voluminous tummy, arch my back and stretch. ahhhhhhh…. Refreshing.
In the midst of my reverie, the lady vet told me that I should, from now on, refrain from sleeping in moist areas because it is often where a lot of mean bacteria breed and thrive in. I should also make sure that I am toweled really dry after every bath. Drat.
What’s more, manang came back from Manila yesterday with a ‘box big enough to put Poopie in’ from the Animal Doctor’s clinic. She had been away since Tuesday and I am REALLY hoping to receive some goodies from her. I wagged my tail excitedly… I yelped and hopped.
“Goodies for me, manang?” I barked, drool oozing in exhilaration.
I rummaged through the box. My eyes widened. Oh no, you couldn’t…
(what’s in the box? Stay tuned tomorrow.)
