    Oh I was mostly teasing about the snot, just like in a human cold the act of breathing on a cup can, in theory, spread the illness. Snot and nose picking is more fun to mock though, largely because I am sure she's already taking precautions.

    We've had a lot of KC with our fosters and rescues over the years and only once with two very sickly puppies did it concern us and thus encourage more than crate rest and vitamin uptake. BUT if he's hacking all over the floor and not getting any sleep, I totally support a vet visit.

    Be safe with Buzz, I know I'd be more worried now with an almost 15 year old in my house than I was when my oldest was 6 and spry.

    Oh, he's not going anywhere and I'm changing after interacting with dogs... and doing laundry tonight. And yeah, he's just basically not going anywhere for a while.

    Aww poor Frodo!

    Don't fret too much, I'm pretty positve Juno had it as a pup (and then passed it to Lucy) but it cleared up on its own just fine.

    HOW DID YOUR INTERVIEW GOOOOOO? And my vibes were more for Frodo and Ryan going to the vet without you....I get a little twitchy when Matt has to take the dogs to the vet without me. Lol. /notacontrolfreak

    If you need a carpet cleaner, I own one. You could definitely borrow it. It's super easy to use. Kind of looks like a really massive vacuum, small enough to fit in a car, though.

    Good luck with Frodo at the vet!

    When we suspected KC in a foster they had us wait out in the car and then escorted us in through the back :p

    Jackson had KC twice. Once was after he got the nasal spray vaccine stuff (go figure), the other was a different time. Both cleared pretty quickly, but I called up our local clinic where he got neutered and told them I was pretty sure he had KC (I took a video of him doing it on my phone). I showed it to the vet, vet said yes definitely, gave us meds without him even coming in, lol. None of my dads dogs ever caught it, and we were over there.

    Frodo did FANTASTICO at the vet. c/t to Frodo AND Ryan!!

    We have antibiotics and the vet suggested slippery elm tea mixed with organic honey for his cough. So far this evening he is fine in his crate, but coughs as soon as he comes out and starts walking around. Poor guy :/

    And I GOT MY PROMOTION!!! And double the pay raise I was expecting! Happy camper right here :D
