We thought we would share some updates today.
Reilly - Itchy scratchies - It has been 6 months now I have been on those nasty allergy injections - mom has never missed a dose and I get those dreaded WEEKLY baths in the special shampoo and tablets for when it is really bad plus that icky spray.
Sadly we have to report that to date it hasn't made the darn bit of difference. The lady vet did say it could take up to 12 months - but we had hoped we would see maybe an inkling of improvement. My furs is very thin now and I have lost all my rough around my neck but Mom says I am still her beautiful boy. I do have a big fluffy butt though as I can't scratch at my back leggies so the furs there hasn't fallen out as badly.
Denny - Hello It is me too! I am happy to say I am feeling MUCH better. Yesterday Mommy, Me and Weilly went for a walk around the block and I actually did good. I was still a little scared but nothing like I normally am. Mom says she hasn't noticed any change in my energy - I am still a bouncy boy and Jackie and I still go crazy playing - but she says I will actually focus on her for a few seconds now when she talks to me. She says she does occasionally notice a sort of glassy far away gaze in my eyes but she doesn't think at the moment that it is a bad thing (she says she will watch that carefully and make sure it doesn't get become too often) and that I am just "taking time to smell the bones" Weilly does that a lot - he seems to be in his own little world sometimes (hmmm Mommy does that all the time too but she calls it meditation !!!)
Jackie - I am much to cute to have any problems although "Other Mommy" is getting a bit upset with me for pooping in the house. (Something that has started only in the last two weeks) I usually leave a little message right by the doggie door. Hey I am like 3 inches off the ground and I don't like going out in the morning and getting my toes and tummy wet in the long grass - can you really blame me???? It's the Other Mommies fault - she should mow the lawn more often !!! I have also been having a battle with those nasty tick things. My Mommy takes to me to lots of new places and that is where I am picking them up - Reilly and Denny haven't had any! We don't know why as I have had all my medicines and get weekly baths but those little critters keep getting on me and biting me. They do die because of the medication but they leave little sores where they bite me and mess up my PERFECT cuteness.
