We are suspecting (and are about 99.9% sure) that Brian contracted “kennel cough” at doggy day care last week. We’re pretty bummed that this is the case despite the fact that he’s supposed to have been vaccinated against the most typical bacterial cause of the infection.

He’s been coughing and hacking up a lung since Friday night. According to the interwebs, the infection will go away on its own in about a week, but I’m taking him to the vet tomorrow morning anyway to get checked out and to get some drugs.

I feel helpless seeing him miserable. Hearing him coughing incessantly is so damn heartbreaking.

I can only imagine what this’ll be like when we have a (human) child.
