We just got back from our first visit to the vet. Oliver’s doing great – though apparently he needs a little fattening up – and no surprise, he was incredibly well-behaved. He was given the next in his series of distemper shots, and since he’s starting puppy school next week, he also received his vaccination against kennel cough. He has another appointment with the vet in a couple of weeks, and at that time he’ll get the third distemper booster and his rabies shot. He’s growing up and starting to look more and more like a little dog rather than a puppy. People said he would grow up fast, and oh boy, were they ever right! It doesn’t matter how big Oliver gets though – and I do think he will eventually be a big dog – he’ll always be our baby!
