The vet told us Oscar seems like a perfect little puppy. Even though we think he’s perfect, it’s nice to hear that from the vet. My very first dachshund was a nightmare situation and I’m always reminded of that when I get a new puppy. That one . . I had found him and he was about an hour from us in Texas. I was living in southwest Louisiana at the time. We went and got him and I don’t remember if the place looked clean or if the lady had a ton of puppies. I was so excited to get him. I named him Toby. We took him to the vet the next day and he had some serious issues. The vet recommended that we take him back and find another puppy. I was torn between keeping him and trying to “fix” him, feeling fairly certain the lady we bought him from wasn’t going to fix him but . . we took him back.
So, the vet here said Oscar was good. The lady who had the puppies had given them all the shots they were due to get before we got him so that saved us a good bit. He did have to get one shot and has to have another shot in three weeks and I think they said he gets his rabies vaccine at 16 weeks. I think . . 14 or 16. I guess if it’s 14 weeks, that could be what he’s getting when we go back. So much for an informed puppy mom.
He weighs almost 5 pounds with his harness on. They put his weight down at 4 pounds, 12 oz.
He’s been sleeping since we got home. I don’t know if it was the trip to the vet or the shot that’s made him so tired but for now, I’m glad to have a few minutes without him pulling on my socks, my pants leg, the sofa, the metal table legs . . he’s asleep under my chair. I feel like I should take a nap while he’s sleeping but Vince wants to get Mexican so . . I’m off to eat Mexican and I never complain about that.
