Perry the Parvo Pup

Today I got to visit Perry, my former “parvo puppy”. He is a rescue, a Lab/Australian shepherd mix, a Parvo survivor, who I raised for a year and then found a home for. Perry wanted to go to a home with kids, and he now lives with Jake and Jackie, thirteen year old twins, and Buster, his Boston Bull buddy. Perry goes on daily runs with his mom. He actually grew to be a much bigger dog than I’d anticipated.

Perry’s system was pretty ravaged by the virus for awhile. I couldn’t get him to make a solid stool until I put him on Life’s Abundance, a holistic food that is delivered fresh right to the door.

Now he is the picture of health, and his coat is wonderful! It just glows. Perry has one eye with some blue in it. He “woo-woo’s” when he sees me, the same as Rip does! It was pretty funny. It’s nice to know he remembers his foster mom.


About Nancy J. Bailey

Artist, author, bad karaoke singer. Woodsy ragamuffin. Mom of a horse named Clifford who plays fetch and paints with watercolors. He visits libraries and schools with me, to promote literacy and making the world a better place. Yes, he is house trained, no, he doesn't live in my house! I have written three books about Clifford. But my newest book, THE NORTH SIDE OF DOWN, is co-written by my awesome sister Amanda, who has Down syndrome. Her unexpected one-liner wisecracks can always make me laugh. If you make me laugh, you've made my day!
