|The following is based on information from Van Buren design documents and is not canon.|
A number of dogs have recently fallen ill, and neither Grins A Lot nor Teacher can seem to figure out what the cause is. The disease seems to be canine-specific and thus far hasn't affected humans. The truth is that the dogs have dug up a long-dead ghoul, and some of them ate it. You can follow the dogs to try to figure out the problem, or you can just use Medicine skill to cure them without knowing the specific cause.
Character type completion breakdown
- Combat Boy - Can shrink to microscopic size and fight the germs. Just kidding.
- Science Boy - Has the best at handling this, using RadAway to treat them.
- DiploBoy - Is outta luck. Talking to the dogs may make them feel better, but won't cure them.
- Stealth Boy - Could follow the dogs around to see if they're eating anything they shouldn't be. We don't need to do a stealth check.
