Dog Flu

Sherman Now Brings You An Important News Bulletin
We received an email from our breeder Mom Lil at Holmhaven Collies.  She alerted us and other Holmhaven Collies of a recent outbreak of Dog Flu in Florida and Georgia.  

According to a different article pups attending dog shows in Perry, GA and Deland, FL came down with Dog Flu.

Dog flue is airborne and spread by other dogs coughing, barking and sneezing.  However, it can also be spread by contaminated objects like water bowls, collars and even by hoomans that have had contact with a sick pup.  Below are links to some good information about Dog Flu or the recent outbreak.  :

Dog Speed,

Sherms, those glasses look spiffy on u! Any plans for a future career in broadcasting? Stay safe from the dog flu. Remember to wash yur paws and to sing the "Happy Birthday" song to make sure u wash for the required time to kill those bugs!

I'm unsure about this, as I don't want to be an alarmist. So I haven't decided if we are going to avoid dog shows, or continue attending. I'm just concerned about my senior collies and the puppies.

There's a possibility we might have it up here too. A friend of mine has a dog that has these symptoms. She was just at a dog show. :(
