Cough, cough...

Who knew that a dog and a human could have the same cold. Last week, Christina sneezes. Arrrggg, "I don't have time for a cold right now." Then a couple days later, a soar throat. The next day, a cough. This is annoying.
That night, we wake up at 3am to hear Darby hacking. After a long deliberation (Is it something in her throat? Does she have stuff in her lungs?), we decide to wait it out and take her to the vet in the morning. Ian stayed up up with her, watching her and making sure she was okay. Christina, afraid for the worse, left the two for the couch to continue her coughing fit. Ian takes Darby to the vet first thing in the morning. When he returned home, he reports, "She has a cough."
She has been vaccinated for kennel cough so the next thought is that she has a cold. So for the next two days, Christina and Darby laid on the couch, coughing and taking cough medicine every 6 hours. It has been quite the bonding time.
