Please send good vibes.

It's hard to believe that I'm asking again but please pray or send good vibes or anything you might do our way. I hadn't posted yet about this but I adopted a dog on Sunday. A 9 week old puppy to be exact from the SPCA. He was sick when I got home from work today and I just got home from the ER Vet where they determined he has Parvo. He is hospitalized there overnight and I will pick him up at 7:30 in the morning to transport him to Dr. Bill.

I'm scared to death for him and for the other Brats. Larry is helping me disinfect the entire house with a bleach solution now and I am tossing their beds, toys, etc. If anyone has any tips for cleaning or any experience with Parvo please I would be grateful for advice.

Durango


Bear had his surgeries today and is doing well...I'll update later. Thanks -Maryann

You sure know how to pick them or them you! Awwww, I'm so sorry the little guy is sick. I hope the good doctor can make him all better and that none of the other brats gets sick. He sure is a looker. I can see why he tugged at your heart. Get well soon Baby Blue Eyes!

SweepyHeaven said...

The HoundsInHeaven will pray that the new brat will not suffer from Parvo (Keeper was given one with parvo years before us and it really broke her heart) . . . btw, what is a power-user? Is this the same group with Learning Times? Well, if it is, my Keeper Lui is a power-user too!

Kapp pack said...

Paws crossed and sibe vibes for all of the pack. Durango is a cutie and those blue eyes are to die for. We don't know much about parvo but here's a website we found. http://www.workingdogs.com/parvofaq.htm. Hope this helps! Good luck and hang in there!

Woo woo, Kelsey Ann

Whoa! Prayers, vibes and all good things on their way. Please let this turn out well. Please.

My Three Girls said...

You know all of us at the Zoo Crew are praying for Durango (love the name, by the way). Will be watching for updates......

Louka said...

Two questions: Are your dogs up to date with their shots and are they otherwise generally healthy? If the answer is yes to both, they have a lot less chances of getting it. gaia died of parvo, it's a terrible thing for an owner to face. I'm sending lots and lots and lots and lots of good vibes, I'm already in love, completely head over heels for that puppy face.

Opy - the Original GruffPuppy said...

Yikes ! You poor guys - we are sending you all the positive vibes we can find, and lots of hugs and kisses too.

Take care - and please keep us updated.

Oh we are keeping Durango in our thoughts. We hope it turns out well.
We know nothing about parvo. Hope you find the answers you need.

Ferndoggle said...

Oh Good Grief Maryann!! The poor little guy. I think you have some sort of gravitational pull that sends these guys to you.

I think one of the Barking Loud dogs had Parvo as a pup...I'll ask them to stop over with advice.

We will be praying as hard as we can!

Ruby Bleu said...

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Sparky said...

Prayers said! I wish I had some answers for you questions about pravo - we have not experienced it here. Durango looks like a mightty happy pup, even though he is sick. His pic looks like he is smiling! And, those eyes!

Mack said...

Me & mom are saying a prayer for you and your pups.
Love,

BamBam & Eski said...

if i were you i'll take him too - look at those attentive blue eyes!

sorry to hear about the Parvovirus... i'm sure he'll be fine since it's detected early. i guess if the other brats had been vaccinated against that, there shouldn't be much prob.
be positive!

send our furry regards to Bear!

Sitka and Tia's BLAWG! said...

First, we are glad that Bear is doing well with his surgeries. Second, COngrats on the new member of the pack. Third, we are SOOO sorry that he is sick. We hope that he will get better fast. He is such a cutie!!! I love his color!

Hugs,

Lady Kaos said...

Oh no!! Our thougts and prayers are with the entire pack! We don't know much about Parvo. All we know is my cousin Dakota got it as s young pup a year ago and was too sick by the time they figured out what was wrong. Luckily my cousin Bailey didn't get it, but I couldn't play with her for a long time until Mom was sure Bailey wasn't sick, too.
I'm sending super Kaos hugs your way!!

rpm said...

I hope he pulls through and I sure hope that all the other "brats" don't get sick. I'm so sorry this has happened to your new doggy and to you. You sure have had a hard time lately but you are such a giving and wonderful doggy mama.

The Daily Echo said...

He's so lucky to have found your very large heart and caring soul. We're sending Sibe Vibes for a fellow Siberian and our paws are crossed for a full recovery. We're so glad Bear is okay. Please keep us posted every step of the way.

Oh my gosh! We (thankfully) have no experience with Parvo. I hope all the hounds including the new one get better quickly. You guys just can't get a break, eh? *Wally snugs*

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

He's adorable! I hope the parvo thing turns out okay. I don't know anything about parvo. Are vaccinations not preventative? We will definitely keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

Luckie Girl said...

Uh oh...I hope he'll get well soon. Durango is such a handsome looking boy, no wonder you decided to adopt him. Glad that Bear is doing well. I will keep checking back and keep my paws crossed for you and the rest of the pack.

Izzie said...

{{{}}} Mama says these mean hugs in internet talk. So I'm sending you and that beautiful dog a bunch

Jan said...

Don't panic over your adult dogs! There is new vet thinking about many shots lasting longer than one year, so if your dogs have ever been vaccinated, they should be safe.

The puppy is adorable and we all have our paws crossed he will come through this okay.

Sophie Brador said...

Maryann, I sure hope this adorable little guy is okay. I don't know much about parvo. My Sophie just tested positive for Lepto, but she's an only dog, so I don't have a pack to worry about. I will keep you in my thoughts and hope for the best. I also hope Sophie's fave chocolatey doggie's toes recover well.

Crikit, Sparky & Ginger said...

Oh goodness! Me Sparky, Tucker Doodles lookalike survived parvo and mommy had another doggie that she treated at home when the vets gave up and her doggie survived too and so will Durango. Hydration hydration hydration then start the the rice water and well you got a good vet so... But we'll keep the prayers going till it all in the past. With every pack member healthy.

Love Licks & waggin TX tails

Hi Maryann, we are sorry to hear the little fella has parvo. We don't know much about parvo, but we are sending positive vibes your way. Hopefully the rest of the pack is okay.

Jan said...

We are sure hoping things are better today. We all have our paws crossed. That made it very hard to type today's post. But stop by when you can. We gave you an award.

Kerrio said...

Parvo is pretty nasty stuff. I hope the poor wee lad pulls through.

I do know bleach is no good for parvo - you need to get a parvo specific cleaner (there is something called parvocide this side of the puddle) but contact your vets and get their advice.

And make sure your other dogs are up to date with their jabs, parvo is VERY contagious.

Hugs - thinking of you

IndyPindy said...

Ooooooooooooh!What a beautiful boy! I would have fallen in love with him too. I'm sure Thrawn is up in heaven smiling.

Hey, just a thought - since he was so recently adopted, you could apply to SOS-RF for help with paying for his care.

I'll be checking back often!

Princess, Tank and Isaac: The Newfs of Hazard said...

Hey! So sorry about all your hardships! Tank had parvo so Durango can ask him all about it. Bear, that's a satelite dish! Do you get good reception?

Hope all your puppers do really well!

We are so sorry to hear this. We came over from Joey and Tanner's blog.
Our thoughts are with you.
