Rapid Recovery

Pappy seems much recovered today following his bout of "False Lime Disease", consisting of lethargy but no secondary symptoms. We were at the vet's yesterday and he took Pappy's temperature with a rectal thermometer, and then took a stool sample to gauge it's consistency. Then he checked the chart and noted that Pappy was overdue for a worm test, so he performed a third anal probe-- just like in alien abductions. It was around this time that Pappy seemed to decide that further medical tests were unnecessary, and he was feeling much much better.

Amazing how that works! Glad Pappy is doing better. He needs to be in top form to chase those balls.

Dachsies, Finnegan, and Maggie,
Yes, Pappy seems pretty much 100% recovered at this point, and we went for a run last night. We still have no idea what was going on the other day.

Sometimes you just gotta put your paw down with these humans who always seem to be interested in your rear end.

Buster, Brody,
Not to worry, Pappy's finally able to sit down properly again. We'll give him a couple of treats to sooth the indignity.
