To inoculate the big head, it was the daughter who carried it to the hospital, before and after three shots.Just like newborns need to be vaccinated, dogs also need prevention, mainly to prevent rabies and various infectious diseases.After big Head learned to climb the stairs, he was full of curiosity about the unknown second floor.When I wasn’t looking, Big Head crept up to the second floor twice. Each time, he urinated and excreted in the corridor.I wonder if this is a deliberate sign that big Head is here.I punished him in a more violent way, and Big Head hasn’t been upstairs since.Big Head, however, was no less curious about upstairs than he was afraid of being beaten.Every morning WHEN I get up and come down from upstairs, I find Head sitting at the bottom of the stairs, looking up, motionless, and wondering how long he has been there.Every day was like this, quietly greeting me, because then, Big Head can go out to work.The yearning for the vast world is the pursuit of big head unswerving.That night, he found that Big Head was not in high mood, and his breathing was rather rough. He did not take it seriously at that time.Sleep into the middle of the night, suddenly heard coughing.At first I thought it was someone passing by, but the cough was so persistent that it sounded like an old man.And the cough came from downstairs, the heart was uncontrollably surprised, is there anyone else in the house?Get up, turn on the light, go downstairs, discover that cool like human cough sound, unexpectedly come from big head.It was curled up in the bar, languishing and dying.This time I was really surprised, big head sick, asthma, cough, my god, can the dog also catch a cold?After getting up early, he hurried to the pet hospital with Big Head.The doctor took big Head’s temperature first and then did a laboratory test.She said, “See if it’s distemper.
