quick update
April 19, 2011

The parvo virus is extremely hardy and can live up to a year in the soil and months indoors. Any and every place that Norman came in contact with needed to be bleached: my sofa, tiles, hardwood floors, dog toys, blankets, beds, rugs, food and water bowls, I'm still working on decontaminating the yard and dog pen. That might take a while. Otherwise the same thing can happen to any new puppy or elderly dog I bring into my house. Any dog that isn't up to date with distemper shots or has a weakened immune system could get it and I would literally die if I ever had to go through this again.

Easter has been canceled at my house for this year because of the virus threat. My yard is not a healthy place to be hiding Easter Eggs for my little nephew right now.

Thank you all for the kind words and support. I am sorry if I haven't had a chance to respond to each of you. Normally when something tragic happens I let myself feel it until I can't feel it anymore, but this is too horrific. I've purposely been trying to NOT think about and block out the horrific thoughts and images of last week.

Help Save One (the rescue where I adopted Norman) has started a fundraising campaign to help pay for his $2,300 vet bill. You can view the story here: http://www.helpsaveone.org/.

It's not much, but I donated a small amount. I wanted you to know that there are people who really really do care, and who appreciate all that you do!
