David was away for a few days and Nova missed him and stayed pretty clingy with me. He had a 11h flight home and, sure enough, was seated in front of a masked man (not the Lone Ranger) who coughed most of the trip. Once home, David promptly tested positive for Covid and is just totally exhausted, mostly sleeping in his office, on the second floor. Miss Nova, therefore, doesn't want to leave the second floor. Yesterday she refused to eat her breakfast or dinner "served" in the kitchen on the first floor. I took dinner upstairs and poor thing ate with appetite, I added breakfast and she ate that too. Then she ate her normal treats, also upstairs. Poor dog ignored her own needs in preference to watching David. Instead of the 4+ daily walks we took while David was away, Nova strictly allows only 2 that she really needs.

I love these dogs.

I'm sorry to hear your husband had a bout with Covid especially due to someone coughing near him on his airline flight. But I'm so proud of Nova, as I'm sure you are too, remaining by his side so comfort him. GSD's definitely are compassionate! wub My best wishes for David's speedy recovery. crossedfingers

Oh Nova...what a sweetheart.

Hoping David doesn't get hit too hard - let us know how he's doing.

I sure hope David recovers quickly. There are meds you can take now that's supposed to help manage the symptoms.

Nova is such a sweetheart. I hear ya, these dogs are just amazing. wub

Poor Dave. Nothing like being exhausted and assaulted with germs. I hope he kicks Covid in the tush. Good girl Nova, you keep you dad confined to quarters so he gets better.
