  • after getting into the truck for our morning ride to work i was handed a small puppy. just shy of ten weeks old, she wriggled in my arms. she was scared and did not want to be held. after some cooing and petting, she finally settled into my lap. it wasn’t until she became still that i noticed she had a multitude of medical problems. her left elbow was swollen and raw. presumably, an infection that could take a turn for better or worse. her right hock was full of what i assumed to be more infectious material that had not yet ruptured. my heart ached for the little girl. despite her injuries, she seemed perfectly content to snooze in my lap as i stroked her back. merckmanuals.com
