Itchy Scratchy Gnaw Gnaw!!!

AAArrrrrffffff...... I don't know what I touched yesterday but it has made my front legs very itchy! Mom thought it might be poison ivy or poison oak, but dad is highly allergic to both of those and we were playing together all yesterday afternoon so if I had that on me, he would be scratching too and he isn't. Mom took me to my doggie doctor this afternoon (sigh, I like her, she is always so gentle and she thinks I am adorable) and she couldn't see anything on my skin and it wasn't even red even though I had been licking at it. Anyway she gave mom some anti itch spray to put on my worked great but dog oh dog does it taste bad. Poor mom had to get up in the middle of the night and wash my legs for me, she used a soothing shampoo and that helped a lot too. I guess I will have to be a little more careful but it is so hard when I go for walks.....I just love all the smells and jump in the middle of plants and bushes without even thinking they might be bad for me.

Woofitty woof


  1. Hi Reilly!

    Sorry to hear about your scratching. Hope you feel better after using the anti-itch spray! Will check back soon!


  2. That's strange - wonder what it is that is making you itch so much! Hope you feel better today!

  3. Hello Reilly,

    We were looking at the list of your blog pals and see you don't have any wire-haired fix terriers listed. While we may have different personalities, we think it would be fun to be friends -- what do you think?

    For references, we can mention our pals Essex and Deacon -- the Key West Collies -- who share constant weather concerns with us during the hurricane season (June 1- November 30) since we live in South Florida too.

    Our Dogdad is from St. Louis, so we love to read about the great rivers. Where on the Missouri River do you all live??

    Come visit -- you'll see that right now we're visiting one of our wirey pals, Gussie, who lives in Memphis, on the Mississippi, while he has surgery today!! But we'll be back as soon as we know he's OK.

    Wirey woofs,

    Jake and Just Harry, aka the Barkalot Boyz -- for reasons that need no explanation!!

  4. Hi Jake and Harry
    I would love to have you as friends!!! As you have probably noticed I don't have a lots of buddies yet so would be honored to add you.

    I live with my mom and dad in Nebraska and the river only five minutes from here. My mom loves being near any, I just think it's wet and reminds me of baths!!!!

    Hope Gussie is doing fine.....will look forward to seeing more of your adventures.

  5. sometimes my feet itch if i walk in somebodys yard and they have used those nasty chemicals to make it look pretty..


Thank you for woofing at us - we read each and every one of them
