We lost Heidi in 2002 (Boxer girl) she lasted two weeks. BYB( didnít know what that was at the time) we got her checked as soon as we got her and she was sick, we chose to fight it and lost.
Hers is an interesting read:

Ours hasn't received his last set yet. We have been concentrating on people socialization mostly, especially children. He has been around our son's dog at our house which we know is vaccinated.
We have taken him into a few stores that are not pet related but I typically carried him. First so he didn't potty in the store and second to help protect him as much as possible.

|middleofnowhere||I wait until 2 weeks after the final parvo shot. My dogs are not seriously hampered by "missing" socialization for that period of time. They see people at my house, meet dogs that people bring over with them. There is plenty of time for them to meet the big wide world of dogs and people.|

I'm having the same concerns. Our boy is 10 weeks old and got his 2nd parvo vaccination yesterday. We took him to my boyfriend's office (at a bank) where he was able to socialize with new people. I need to go get him some more toys and some training treats today. I would love to bring him with me but I am a parvo-freak and don't want him to get sick. I planned on bringing a blanket to line the inside of the shopping cart and keep him inside. Would that be okay? We would be going during non-busy hours on a weekday.
