A pug in North Carolina named Winston, was experiencing mild symptoms – Like he didn’t want to eat his breakfast, and if you know any dog…. you know they love to eat.

Winston, was part of a Duke University study in which a whole family, the McCleans, were tested for the virus.

The mother, father, son, and pug tested positive, while the daughter, another dog and a cat tested negative.

A dog in Hong Kong with coronavirus died in March, but the cause of death for the 17-year-old was unclear as the owner refused an autopsy.

We all heard that the CDC said there is no evidence that animals can spread the virus that causes COVID-19, but they do recommend you treat them as you would other human family members.

One thing they recommend:  Do not let pets interact with people or animals outside the household, If a person inside the household becomes sick, isolate that person from everyone else, including pets.

So… I guess they can get it.  Great.
