He does assist me with hearing things that I can't when I don't wear my hearing aids.

Great picture.  The only problem is, the COVID-19 can actually stay on a dog's fur for a while (not sure how long).  May need to either wipe the dog down, or at least wear gloves.  Sorry to be a wet blanket.  Just sayin'

If you care as little as I do it won't matter.

FYI from the College of Veterinary Medicine

 

At this time, experts believe it is very unlikely. The World Health Organization currently advises that there is no evidence to suggest that dogs or cats can be infected with the new coronavirus. The OIE states there is no evidence that dogs play a role in the spread of this disease or that they become sick. The CDC also seconds that opinion, stating that, “At this time, there is no evidence that companion animals including pets can spread COVID-19.”

 

Why is the college offering a COVID-19 test for pets if they cannot get it?

Although current information suggests that our pets cannot become infected with COVID-19 and spread it to other animals and people, researchers at the college will begin offering this testing in the future in order to monitor the outbreak. We still have a lot to learn about this new virus, and it will be important to evaluate if our current understanding changes.

 

What animal did COVID-19 originate from?

Current research suggests that horseshoe bats are the reservoir species and the virus originated from that species as well. Previous human coronavirus outbreaks, SARS and MERS, originated in bats but passed through other species, such as the palm civet and camels.

 

If I am diagnosed with COVID-19, how do I protect my pet?

Since your pet is at minimal risk of COVID-19 infection there are no specific steps needed to protect them from infection. However, pets can have the virus ON THEM if they are in an environment with a large quantity of the virus and could serve to be a source of the virus for other people, including family members.  Therefore, to protect other people and yourself, the CDC recommends that you restrict contact with pets if you are sick with COVID-19, just as you would restrict your contact with other people. Avoid snuggling, being kissed or licked, and sharing food. If you must interact with your pet, wash your hands before and after, and wear a face mask.

A little girl on the other end of the county from me wandered off Wednesday while playing in the yard.

 

She was found out in the woods today by searchers because they heard her dog barking.  The dog had been with her the whole time.
