Poor Marlowe Got Double-Whammied (nothing too serious)

Marlowe\'s been out to dog shows two weekends in a row, and I woke up Sunday morning to \"cough...cough...cough, cough, cough, RETCH!\" Yup. Kennel cough. And yes, he is UTD on his bordatella vaccine. :? To top that off, we were playing a rather vigorous game of fetch a couple of weeks ago, and he went in for his characteristic home plate slide through the leaves to get the ball. And came out limping. After two weeks of some days acting like his foot was fine, and other days favoring it, I finally had the vet look at it when I took him in for the kennel cough. $100+ later, he\'s taking 2 kinds of antibiotics, has pain meds for his foot, and is on bed rest for 2 weeks for a probable soft tissue injury. :-O My very active, intelligent, bratty 13-month-old retriever puppy is on doctor\'s orders for no running, no jumping, and no walks except for potty breaks on leash. We need POTP, not for him, but for my sanity! :)) I think this calls for a shopping trip to any store that carries puzzle toys. And for me to find ways to improve my karma. ;)
