The Black Sheep

Laverne: “It’s okay, Shirl. Go ahead and tell her. Lots of ewes have this problem.”

Shirley: “But it’s embarrassing.”

Me: “What’s wrong, Shirley?”

Laverne (whispering): “She’s got worms.”

Me: “Oh my, well yes that’s a problem”

Laverne: “I think she has lung worms. She coughs and hacks when she runs.”

Me: “I’ll get the vet right out here.”

Shirley": “Can we keep this just between us?”

Me: “Um, it might be a bit too late for that…”

(Vet says Shirley’s lungs are clear, no pneumonia.  Started her on a de-wormer and she should be on the mend in a few days.)

Glad she shared her problem! :-) Hopefully she'll be quickly on the mend and can run with the wind and not hack and cough.

This hot, wet summer ain't helping anything either. It's like a worm nursery out there. Ugh.
