There's been a lot of this the last month for Lulu. I had to reschedule her vet appointment, which means she couldn't get a heartworm check, or pills. So I've been avoiding bringing her to the doggy park. On top of that, Tropical storm Debby, while not that terrible, did make a muddy mess of the little doggy run area we have at my apartment complex. So she has been stuck inside the last few weeks -- not the best place for a beagle.
The good news is yesterday at the vet she tested heartworm negative. Today she got her distemper shot because they wanted to make sure she had benadryl in her system (if you remember, she had a bad reaction to her rabies shot back in April). She is now cleared for doggy park fun!
Meanwhile, we'll be talking soon about Lulu's new buddy:
This is Cappy. And he and Lulu definitely have some jealousy issues.
SPCA of Central Florida is in need of dog and cat food and kitty litter. If you can help, please contact the shelters in either Sanford or Orlando, via their website: http://www.ohs-spca.org/
