Dog Kidnaps Heart

Benson is an adorable Golden who arrived with a hot-mess list of ailments that would turn anyone upside down!

The poor boy had both hookworms and Clostridium (a bacterial infection) which led to puddles of diarrhea. He also tested positive for heartworm. Triage was in order.

We dealt with the hookworms and Clostridium first (because no one is a fan of cleaning up runny poo!). Then, we needed to put some weight on him before beginning the heartworm treatment. While all of this was going on, Benson earned the coveted office dog spot where he could be closely monitored.

Regular readers are familiar with the office dognapper – aka, my gardener buddy, Anna.

Soon, I began noticing that my gardener was disappearing, and my camera was loaded each week with images of Anna and Benson.

So it was no surprise that Anna showed up on Sunday with her Jenni and Royce (16!) for a meet-and-greet.

With a thumbs up, the red-heads headed home together – where Benson has found a comfy and quiet spot to rest while he finishes his heartworm treatment.

It seems this wormy boy has wormed his permanent way into our dognapper’s heart.
