I was there with Mabel all 3 days, and I am worried. I am hoping that the dog that died had a rare terrible reaction to common kennel cough.... I guess we will find out in time. My Mabel apparently picked up kennel cough when she was at shows in Maryland in February.... and it took 10 days before she came down with it. It was pretty nasty for a couple of days, and I left Florida with her early and drove home..... so much for that vacation. By the time we got home 2 days later, she was much better. Mabel did have her borditella drops AND the 2 step flu shot - so maybe that helped her to get over it fast. My other 2 dogs did not get it.
I will be watching Mabel closely, and will be following this story. I hope no other dogs end up like that poor GSD!
