Carolina, me too! I've already been on alert knowing it was breaking out in other places in the country, but being so close to home, it gets nerve-racking to take the dogs out to the vet's office, which seems like it should be a safe place, but obviously that's exactly where people bring their sick dogs.
Poornima, I answered you privately, but since others live in the area, I'll post for everyone to see that I also called my other vet's office (the one we share) and they have had two cases also. Unfortunately, that's both ends of Fremont (population of 211,000 humans, for those that aren't familiar with the area).
Shannon, after having some kind of puking/diarrhea sickness go through my dogs that lasted over a month, I'm hypersensitive about my dogs eating anything where other dogs go, including dropped treats at training class. If we even drop a treat, I pick it up and throw it out. I have tried to discourage them from eating anything off the ground.
As for Kara, yes, I see. I've been here twice as long and don't have kids at home anymore either! LOL Just on ratios, I think she has earned the title of Yakking Queen even if her actual count is lower.
(Smoochies to you, Kara!)
