I'm so sorry Spiffy. That had to be devastating.

That said, my dogs are all 5+ and haven't been vaccinated for a while... I take off my shoes in the garage, that's about it.
That's so sad Ian worked at a vet office for a few months during college, and it was horrible hearing about all of the parvo puppies. They didn't get them daily, but they'd have them on a weekly basis. Hearing about them was heartbreaking. There was a tiny chihuahua that Ian had to put into a bag for the freezer, and hearing about it really ripped me up
