Can Dogs Get the Flu?

Hey Pups,


Can dogs get the flu from their people?  I really hope not.  Mom and Dad said the Little Biped threw up at the grocery store last Saturday night.  She seemed to be OK after that; however, Monday night she woke up crying and said she was cold.  Turned out she was running a fever.  She went to Gama's Tuesday and threw up at Gama's house.  Tuesday night her fever was up to 103.4.  She went to Gama's again Wednesday.  That afternoon, Dad came home and said he didn't feel good. He got the thermometer and found out he had a fever too.  Thursday, Dad had to go to Maine for some meetings so despite not feeling well, he got out of bed at 3am and was on a plane before 6am.  He got home around 10:30pm.  Meanwhile, the Little Biped spent another day at Gama's.  Dad tried to get up for work this morning, but Mom insisted that he take a sick day.  So, the Little Biped and Dad stayed home.  The Little Biped hasn't thrown up since Tuesday, but now says she has an earache.  Tomorrow, she'll go to the doctor.  I am hoping that this can't be passed on because I really don't want to be stuck laying on the couch all day with pillows, blankets, and dirty tissues...  Wait a minute - that doesn't sound so bad!  Well, maybe we will get the flu from the people.  
Brook did throw up tonight.

Oh, and Canyon just sneezed....it's going to be a long weekend...

Kisses, King Skyboy

Uh oh! John just sneezed twice. I hope he isn't catching this flu through the computer. Tissues and the blankie sounds like a great day. I like to pull it down off the couch on top of me.

Hope you all feel better and just try to breath less.

No, you can't catch the flu, but you should pretend to and milk it for sympathy.

Little Bipeds have lots of cooties, but I think tough doggies like you should be immune.

Don't forget chicken soup. You'll need lots if you get sick. And probably Happy Hearts cookies. They have healing properties.

Cough...

I think I just might be getting sick.

Oh no! I hope everyone gets well soon! Having a sick human is not a good thing...my mom got the flu and couldn't even get up to feed us our breakfast! Take care of them..keep them warm so they get better fast!

Oh, no! Poor bipeds! Hope our great Maine air helped dad's condition--though we're pretty sure all that travel didn't do much to improve it. Get well soon!
