The Snaps Report: Sick and spoiled

I told myself that I won't be one of those people who spoil their dogs to no end. I always thought that the money and time for that can go to better indulgences (like shoes). But really, how can you not spoil a dog like Snaps? He is sweet, friendly, and usually well-behaved.

Yes, that is the newly-groomed, newly-vaccinated, and rather sick Snaps. He has a bacterial disease at the moment (major sad face), but he is already on medication and we hope that he will get through it safely soon. According to the vets, he probably got it from the water in Tiendesitas. They mentioned that they had a confined dog patient recently who has the same malady - like Snaps, the dog was also bought from Tiendesitas.

So let this serve as a warning: as soon as you get your dog, get him vaccinated and tested for common diseases like this. (The name of the disease escapes me at the moment). Check his stool, too. It should be firm and formed, not mushy.

Anyway, we went to Dogs and the City in Burgos Circle, The Fort to have him groomed as well as to shop for some essentials.
