I ended up getting a female puppy like I had originally planned, and named her Belle
. As I have posted, we got her on Saturday night and she made her first trip to the vet with us on Monday. Her vet said that she was in great physical condition, and that she was very mellow when she was taking her temperature. Belle is SO shy around strangers, but she is such an active little girl at home.
She got one of her shots and deworming medicine. She started to cry and I felt bad for the pain that she was going though
. She did, however, handle her shot more calmly than my cousin’s dog (he was wiggling and yelling all over the place) When we got home, she was very sleepy and tired, but was back to her active little self this morning.
When we let her out to go to the bathroom, however, there were worms in her poop. Needless to say, I was disgusted and terrified at the same time. I called the vet and explained what had happened, and she reassured me that it was perfectly normal and that she forgot to tell me that this might happen…the deworming medicine is doing its job…she most likely got the worms from her mother…and that she will be given more medicine on her next visit next month. I was just glad to hear that she was fine.
Anyways, I remembered that my cell phone has a camera, so I took a couple pictures of Belle. Here are two:
