do not wait, vaccinate!

I just learned a 300 dollar lesson that sucks. If you have a puppy, especially one that lives in a neighborhood like mine (just south of downtown, not the best neighborhood), get them vaccinated immediately. Don’t forget, don’t put it off, just do it.

My puppy contracted porvo virus yesterday and if you’re not familiar with the virus, it’s nickname is ‘puppy killer.’ Yeah, bad stuff. My pup is usually happy and giddy and bouncy and now she’s morose and lazy and crapping nastiness everywhere. Fun stuff.

I think she’ll pull through, but I have to pretty much watch her over every second and nurse her back to health. Poor thing. I feel like this is my fault, a little bit. I should have just gotten the damned vaccinations when I thought about it :/
