News has gotten me on edge. Last night someone posted on Facebook that healthy dogs have been suddenly dying from a strange virus. Instead of reading it and critically determining the viability of this post or calling the vet for an official confirmation or denial of the article, I ignored it- at least until Rex sneezed on me during the night and woke me up each time. I think it is called pandemonium in my mind or maybe just plain anxiety. It was just a week ago that our Rex was rushed to the vet. He was on a bland diet and is on the tail end of antibiotic, yet he has developed new symptoms: repeatedly sneezing. Unlike last week's illness, at least Rex is exercising his tail, wanting to cuddle and has not forgotten the bad habit of begging. Hopefully, all is right with our world and that article was a hoax.
