Rusty's new friend

Poor Rusty was down with fever over the weekend. He was so listless and weak, he refused to eat and didn't even growl when the puppy from next door gobbled up his food.

We have been hearing puppy noises coming from the farm next door for several weeks. Now that the pups are bigger, they wander into our yard. This little one is so frisky, he kept going round and round Rusty like he was high or something!

On a normal day, Rusty would have been so annoyed and snarled at him but yesterday, he was too weak to react. Seeing how sick he was, we sent him to the vet in the afternoon.


He was given 2 injections and was in a sorry state when he returned. The injection must have hurt him so much for he could not walk or sit. After coaxing him to lie down, he slept through the afternoon and was visibly better at night.

This morning, he could run and bark again. Yay, Rusty is on the road to recovery.

**Update** It's Monday night and he's fine now. He can race across the house like a roadrunner again. Beep Beep!

JY - Don't worry, he's getting better already (before I left the house this morning). Shall report again when I am home.

Janice - I was hoping he would recover on his own but his condition only got worse. So glad he finally saw the vet.
