Something’s Going Around

Did you know there’s a dog flu going around?

mad Stuart

No. I’m not sick, although you wouldn’t know that from this little photo of moi. I guess I was just in one of my moods here. I get moody sometimes. Do you?

Anyroo, I thought you should know that there’s a canine flu going around. So, the next time I go out, I’m going to wear my face mask. Just to be sure. You wear yours, too. So we’ll both be safe. K?

    Yikes! That’s not good. I think we are all Okee dokee, but will stay away from the dog park for a bit. You be safe, too. No virus wants to get caught up in our noses, eh? They may never get out 🙂

    I saw it on Yahoo News and on ABC News. The articles say you don’t want to sniff noses or butts of other dogs. Lee says I act to human to sniff noses and butts.
    Thanks for being a friend

    Something going around? Yikes, this is news to us, bad news. Thanks for the heads up. My Peep will be looking into this. Wearing a mask is a good idea, but do you think we’ll look like we’re ready for Halloween?

    My brother Banks was not feeling to very well yesterday. He didn’t want his yummy food and he wanted to lay in the back yard in the sun. Way strange for Banks……he loves, gulps, loves his food! He hasn’t been around any other doggies lately, but you never know. Maybe he had touch of the flu???? I on the other paw was frisky as all stink yesterday, just to keep my peeps on their toes!!
    Thanks for the heads up Stuart! You are such a good friend to help keep us healthy.

    I’m much more scared of the bird flu.

  8. corkscot says:

    We haven’t heard anything about it. Maggie’s mother is always taking her to the vet and she never mentioned anything about flu.

    PeeS: yes, we both can get moody when we want to, mom says it’s ok, we’re all entitled to our “off days”

  13. I’ve read about this flu at Sugars blog… it’s scary what goes around, right? I hope that all pups and peeps are careful when they meet each other at dog parks…

    My Mom had me get a shot for the flu a couple years ago, but she hasn’t made me get the yearly booster. I travel with her, so she might get me a booster as soon as I’m done taking all my extra allergy stuff for the horrible itchy that I get this time of year. And yes, I can get moody!

    still no blog

  15. PigLove says:

    Oh squeals no! You gotta take care of you pal. And yes wearing a mask outside is probably the best thing. We don’t want you getting the dog flu. Mommy says she’s always scared that I might get the swine flu. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

  16. Scout's Mom says:

    My big sister the lab had a nasty bout of something – major squirts for a couple days!! She had to go see the dogtor and get medicine. I wonder if she had that flu? Sure am glad me and my other (bratty) sister Abbey didn’t catch it! All you guys stay safe!!!! Keep your noses and butts to the ground!
    Aroo Scout

  17. Oh, I have been reading about that canine influenza outbreak. So scary. Be sure to wear your mask so you stay healthy!

  18. Riley Puppy says:

    Thank you so much for the alert, Stuart! Very nice of you to tell us!
    We think maybe you just have Spring Fever, eh?
    Please stay well! Love, Riley Puppy and Tessie

  20. Jacques is ALWAYS moody – he’s part French after all. 😉 Thanks for the heads up. Stay well!!

Go ahead...Bark Out Loud! ArroOOOO!
