Noelle has the chicken pox...

Dogs can get the chicken pox, right?  I am sure that is what it is, because tonight she suddenly had these bumps all over her body.  They appeared out of nowhere, all at once.  So I guess it could be an allergic reaction, but she didn't do or eat anything out of the ordinary all day.  Therefore, I've ruled out all possibilities other than chicken pox.  I'm planning to tell the vet that when I take Noelle in tomorrow to confirm the diagnosis.  I'm sure the vet will appreciate my help.   

In other news, Mira is doing great - she has gained weight, is eating and drinking on her own now, and appears to be on her way to a full recovery. 

And now, for your viewing pleasure, a few scenes from the adoption event this past weekend...
  There were four golden retreiver/yellow lab mix puppies available for adoption. 

I couldn't stop taking their pictures.

They were just so sweet and cuddly. 

Even when they glared at me for keeping them awake.  They have an adorable glare.

There were several other dogs and puppies there too.  I didn't take any pictures of them.  I was too busy trying to get the puppies to wake up and glare at me some more.

Oh, I bet they find homes quick. And they'll be the friendliest dogs in the world, no doubt, glares notwithstanding.

I'm so glad that Mira is doing better, and Noelle is probably allergic to something that she was never allergic to before. We do that to keep you humans on your toes.

wags, Lola

I thinks your vet will preciate your knowledge but, are you sure it ain't da German Measels. It could very well be. That's what mum thought mine was since I'm a german dog.
That doggie is ALMOST as cute as me...don't cha think? It's fun to glare at doggies...hehehehe!

Ruh roh, sounds like allergies to me. I agree, check between the toes. Those pups sure are adorable.

Oh goodness, look at those puppies! They are even cute when they glare, you are very right. It's hard for us pups to not be cute, you know?

We hope that Noelle will get better quickly - we are sending her lots and lots of purrs and prayers. And we are glad that Mira is doing better - we just read the last update and were sad to read about Spot. But we know you are taking good care of all the sickies there! And boy, those are sure some cute puppies so I can see why you would be taking their pictures!

Is Noelle all itchy with the chicken pox? Do you have to put "oven mitts" on her paws so she won't scratch ala the 'Friends' TV episode?

JackDaddy said...

Well, I'm glad I wasn't at the adoption event. I don't think I could handle having 5 puppies at home! :)

So I guess you found out when you went to the vet that dogs can't get chicken pox. I'm curious why you didn't post it on this page so that anyone who stumbles across this page won't get the wrong information.
