Ringo gives us a fright

Our new puppy Ringo had a hard time! He spent the wekend really ill, with fever, a hard breathing and looking tired as if he had run a marathon. The doctor startled us when said he had a pneumonia, because we treat him so carefully with all the vaccines updated and a comfortable and warm bed! Poor little thing! We treated him with double care, medicating him hourly and keeping him warm. Lucas was mumbling all the time around the house, and when I asked him what he was doing, he said he was praying in thought for the goddess to help him get better. I was doing the same!
Against all odds, today he is incredibly well, as if nothing ever happened. I believe that, as he's a mix of a good breed and stray dog, maybe he's a bit stronger then expected. Thing is that he's running up and down as usual, and we're only avoiding letting get outside, where the wind is blowing colder these first Autumn days.
I was really afraid that he wouldn't make it, young as he is, but Nature suprises all the time... specially if you give it a hand...

Gracious, first poor Baruck comes down with liver problems and now little Ringo was ill!

It never rains, but it pours!

I'm happy he is on the mend, they are tough little things sometimes!!!
