S and I took Diva to the vet today for her first "official" visit.
We have had this little puppy for 2 weeks and in that time her weight has increased from 10 lbs. to 13.9 lbs!
That's a 39% weight increase in TWO weeks! Can you imagine if your weight increased 39% in two weeks???? Holy guacamole.
The vet gave her some shots and told me that the vaccinations might make her lethargic for the remainder of the day (I asked if he could guarantee that, and he looked at me funny....). :-)
He also said Diva has some sort of intestinal parasite (I forget which one) which is common. He gave her the medication to de-worm her and announced that we would see some "worms that resemble spaghetti" in her poo over the next few days.
Boy oh boy. How THRILLED I am by that development. (Let's hope THAT pile of poo happens outdoors.)
I'm happy though, that we have a healthy pupster. :-)
