Zona is Home
Zona came home on Tuesday (which was Aila's actual birthday). The pound warned us that she had a bit of a runny nose and that we have 2 weeks to return her if she does not get better. It could be something serious like distemper or something mild like kennel cough. I found a free vet to take her to and they said it is less than a 20% chance that she has distemper and the odds are even better since it is the summer. They gave us an antibiotic and said the next 2 weeks will be the telling factor. If it is distemper she will get worse and worse.
We have been giving her the antibiotic and she seems to be getting better and better. She is getting more energy each day. The other good signs are that she has never lost her appetite and her nose running hasn't gotten any worse.
Hopefully by next week she will be 100% because she is the sweetest, cutest puppy ever. She is so good with the kids. She is doing great with house training too. She loves to cuddle and snuggle as you can see in the pictures. And she has been home a week and I have yet to hear her bark!
