This summer, Norwood made many new friends at the lily pond.
He liked them so much, he jumped in to swim with them all the time.
What's the problem, you ask? He's swimming with his fun friends.
Well Norwood recently contracted the wonderful intestinal parasite Giardia. Good news, he is now clear of it. Bad news, he has been invaded by another parasite... one that comes from the pond. He has Alaria. The vet has not seen it in a very long time. Alaria only occurs when you ingest the host animal... a tadpole, frog, snake, mouse. Now he had to ingest it within the last 35 days. Which friend was it? The pond is frozen over.. ..
Here's what I think happened? Norwood won't tell me.
I told Norwood that I think we will stick with these kind of friends, friends like Mr. Moose. He kills these friends too but at least he spits out the stuffing. I have to teach him better manners with his friends. Friends are not for killing or dinner.
