Kennel Cough

Just when you think the day is going to go according to planned, a wrench the size of a Labrador Retriever gets thrown into the middle of them. My dear husband drove the girls to doggie daycare and 20 minutes later, he comes back home with our 11 month old, Dakota. It seems that while he was in the waiting area, Dakota was pulling on her leash and started to choke herself and gag. Well, the owner of the daycare heard this and declared that Dakota most likely had Kennel Cough and could not be permitted into the daycare. What? Kennel cough? No way! Not Dakota! She had no symptoms of kennel cough or I would have noticed it - she was only coughing because she was pulling on her leash/collar.

So, I had no choice but to get her to the vet or the daycare would not take her back. Luckily the vet was able to take her right away and after spending $105 for a check up and blood work, the vet determined that there was indeed no kennel cough. Thanks a ton doggie daycare! I knew she didn't have it but it was a catch-22 situation. Now we are down $105 for nothing and the daycare apologized and allowed Dakota to come in later today to stay the afternoon. Guess they think we needed a scare and needed to be down $105!
