Puppy got a clean bill of health. We're treating for fleas and ticks, got a worm treatment. Did not check today for heart worm or get immunizations because Doc didn't want to traumatize him. He is going back in about 3-4 weeks for all those things, a tooth cleaning, and a "vasectomy"!!! LOL! Yes, I know, he's having more than the vas ectomied! :D Just a little humor, there. And for the guys reading this, I'm sure it seems like very little humor!
His lungs are clear and strong, his heart strong and steady, all signs of his good health. His weight is 10.6 pounds. Doc felt that since all else seems good, there was no reason to give him a setback in his progress of adjustment by poking him and making him uncomfortable. He suggested that we wait to give him time to have more confidence about his home. When The Boy returns, he will have one shot, then he won't remember all the other stuff.
Doc believes him to be about four years old, a Shih Tzu/Poodle mix. He was impressed with The Kid's behavior and seeming adjustment thus far. He suggested using the collar in training only if necessary, and then didn't think the training collar would be necessary on this guy, just his regular collar.
That's about it. I'm glad to have a good outcome, no unhappy surprises!
I hope y'all aren't as bored with this as he is!!!
Oh sorry, L'il Guy, I didn't think you were listening! :D
Life is beautiful!!!!
