Thursday was Ruby’s first trip to the vet with me. She had gone with her litter mates before we got her. The vet is a half hour away and oh she fussed all the way there and all the way home until we were about five miles from home…then she feel asleep. I tell you having a puppy is so much like having a kid…my kids did that all the time!
Ruby got her shots and wormer. She also got a kennel cough shot so that she’ll be safe for when she is being cared for while we are the wedding. (Can you believe only 15 more days until the big event?!?!?)
While talking with the vet I expressed a concern I had. I think Ruby has a urinary track infection. The first four days she was here she had one accident each day. Then the next day no accidents at all. Then we had two days that all we had were accidents….NINE in a day or more. Then when we walked and were outside for about 45 minutes she went potty three times in that short period. Then came in the house and had an accident within minutes.
The vet and I talked. We decided to put her on some amoxicillin.
It was a little hard for me going to the vet. I just kept remembering everything that happened over the last days with Gracie. I remember just how she turned and looked at me right before I left. I love little Ruby like crazy. She’s a great little pup and I can see she has so much potential to be an awesome dog. But she’s not Gracie and Gracie is not her. I wouldn’t trade one for the other ever. I just wish I could have them both…but I can’t. So I am going to love this little gal that I have and be thankful that I do have her.
