Today I went to see the Frankenvet cos Isa been sick all weekend.  FURST on Saturday I started to cough and gag while Mom and I was watching a movie.  Mom patted me on the back and toles me it was okay, but it really wasn't cos I couldn't stop coughing....I coughed and coughed and coughed and gagged.  Momma was worried.

THEN Dad came home wif his hoggy friends.  Hoggy as in these guys.
Remember LAST year when I tried to steal their bikes, cos I didn't like them.......I toles them I was a better looking biker.....

WELL, I embarrassed myself cos I still couldn't stop coughing and it got sooo bad Momma had to call the Frankenvet late Saturday night.  Hesa was busy probably at the biker rally and didn't want to be interrupted so he toles Momma to give me Benadryl cos I probably was allergic to something.  Yeah, Frankenvet allergic to all this stinky leather in ours house!!!!

WELL, Momma was afeared to give her off brand medicine so hers gave me chicken noodle soup and honey instead, I still cougheded and cougheded and cougheded....Mom and I stayed up all's night long.  Finally she put me in a steamy shower, but I was still gagging and coughing.  No one slept except Dad.  He just didn't have it in him to stay up ALL night long like Momma did.

So by Sunday afternoon I had lost my bark entirely, but I was resting better.  Mom and the Frankenvet talked more and he thought it could be kennel cough.  Mom was supposed to call back on Monday.

On Monday I acted somewhat better, but the Frankenvet said that Stellie and Maggie also had to come to the vet and get this special medicine SO they would not get sick.  Well, afters they seen me, and checked me over, they decided it WAS NOT kennel cough, but that my trachea is small, and it was swollen and irritated.  I toles the Frankenvet it was from me smelling stinky biker jackets all weekend.  Hers did not believe me.  She gave me antibiotics for two weeks, and prednisone for two weeks, and other med and a breathing treatment.  Mom said befores hers knows it Isa gonna be up and running wild again.

Mom also toles me she was so proud of me how brave I acted at the vet.  I listened to hers, and didn't bark and carry on like when I goes wif Dad.  I toles her it was because my special angel friend went wif me and Isa wasn't even scared.
