I took Molly in for her Parvo vaccine and initial puppy checkup yesterday. I was a bit concerned about driving there alone because I had no idea how she would be in the Jeep, so asked granddaughter Genie if she had time to come with us. Fortunately she obliged!
First off, Molly was quite happy to have her first visitor. She bonded quite easily with Genie – and had her first opportunity to sit on the sofa. 😲
Everything went great. Molly was fine in the Jeep. She laid down in the back with her head poking through between the front seats. Out of the vehicle, she was quite happy to walk nicely beside Genie on her leash.
Molly weighed in at 10 kilograms (22.4 pounds). She let Genie lift her onto the vet’s table and distract her while she got a complete once over (including getting her temperature taken 😳). Everything checked out fine so she got her vaccine. The only ‘glitch’ is that because of the high risk of Parvo right now, she cannot go out of our yard until she has had the next two booster shots. (8 weeks I think). It isn’t a big deal now, but I was hoping to have her totally used to taking walks around the neighborhood before she got much bigger. At least we have a big yard to practice in.
We came back home. Molly and Genie played and cuddled until Dan came home – because Genie can’t leave without seeing Grandpa and getting her obligatory hug. 💞
Today, Molly has been a little under the weather. She had a bit of ‘intestinal trouble’ this morning, so I gave her a tablespoon of pumpkin which seems to have taken care of things. She is starting to perk up now.
That is it for Molly news today. Take care and have a great rest of the day.
