Tyler Recovering from trouble in triplicate

Tyler is not feeling well
Taking your dog to an annual exam is a good thing. Having his #1 and #2 tested is also a good thing.
The morning of Tyler's pre-scheduled annual exam, he peed in the house, near the back door (while I was shaving and I didn't hear him. However, he did walk in the bathroom to let me know- but I wasn't paying attention). 
  So, I knew there was something wrong and later in the day took him outside and got a sample to confirm my suspicion of a urinary tract infection. I also gathered the other business for a test.
  The tests came back positive. Tyler did have (and still does) a urinary tract infection, so he's on antibiotics. He also has 2 different types of worms/parasites in his #2, which he likely picked up in the area of his outside training because there are so many dogs there. So, he's also on 2 other medications for those.
  Poor Tyler!  You wouldn't know that he's dealing with those three issues, though because he's still energetic, but he should be over them in about 10-14 days.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
