Taking back MY blog !

I am taking back MY blog ! I don't get what gives with these young whipper snappers hogging the space on MY blog. I am the Cowspotdog and this is MY bloggie after all.

It is still so hot and humid here but I did agree to the Mom taking few photos yesterday. Here I am doing my patriotic pose and then just doing my inquisitive look and thinking "why are you making me sit here in the hot sun MOM!"

This weather is also making my allergies go crazy and I am not a happy doggie at the moment. When I am not scratching I am rubbing my face on anything with corners on it. (Note from Mom - Reilly is now having allergy shots ever four weeks and is on antihistamines but they really don't seem to be helping much, we had to stop the prednisone - even though they helped a little, as they were making him act like he was starving and he was putting on too much weight. We have tried different allergy and hot spot shampoos and I have been doing patch tests on him to see if it is specific plant or grass but nothing so far - sigh, I hate seeing him so uncomfortable)

Hey MOM ! Are you taking over my blog too! Okay, I give up - I will share - but ONLY sometimes! Mom took the Den-myster (Dad has already nic-named him) to the vets this morning for a check up and we are pleased to say he got the okay, ears, eyes, heart, lungs, legs - everything. He had a good going over and was so well behaved. The vet did notice that the Denny has a few sores on him (given that he was a litter of seven and pups like to play fight it is to be expected. He said he will check on those again in two weeks).


  1. Nice to hear from you Reilly! You've been a good sharer.

  2. Maybe when it is too hot to play you can teach the others dog blogging classes so they can teach write their own.

  3. Great to see you, Reilly. We are sorry to hear about those allergies. Wish the meds were helping. We sure wish you could find a good remedy. Could it be food-related at all?

    We will always think of this blog as yours and Mom's, but we have enjoyed meeting "IT" and now Denny too.

  4. You definitely been sharing nicely! Glad to have you back. Nice flaggie there!

  5. I noticed the American Flag.
    Hope you had a nice Fourth of July!
    Visit me at my blog, and you will see me dressed up as Uncle Sam!

  6. Congrats on the new brother! Boo on the allergies!! Sometimes you have to blog-share, but at least you don't have to share with kitties! Bleh!! :)

  7. Sharing sucks, doesn't it Reilly! We have to do it with everything - even mom and dad!!

    We don't know if you follow browndogcbr. He's a beautiful retreiver. A couple of months ago his mom went through the whole story of his allergies, and what they ended up doing. I think it's browndogcbr.blogspot.com. You'll have to go back a ways, but it's worth it. His photos are beautiful. AND he's an ONLY CHILD!!!

  8. Glad to see what you are taking it back over. I have learned that I have to share with my siblings as well. No fun...but you have to be nice. :)

  9. Your mom needs to turn on the A/C for you!

  10. Allergies are no fun! I hope you get it figured out soon...and you've been very nice to share your blog. You're a nice big brother.

  11. I can't stop watching the video of Denny -- he is just can't-stand-it adorable!

    Woofs & hugs,

  12. Hi Y'all,

    Got your message about how miserable allergies are. I had a blood test for my allergies and they found out I'm allergic to grass and just about everything else. I started with a shot every day. Now I'm down to once a month.

    I also have major food allergies. Most meats, grains and vegies and fruits (and I love watermelon and apples) sigh. It leaves me very little I can eat.

    The most important thing my Human learned is that you have to keep seeking and if one vet isn't being proactive enough, find another.

    Part of my problem was a major anal gland infection. Once I saw a specialist, surgeon and had that cleared up, life became more bearable.

    Find the sumary here: http://browndogcbr.blogspot.com/2011_03_01_archive.html

    You'll find the posts about the allergies within a week. It starts with the post "I Promised". You can just click on March and work your way forward, or just read the summary and get some ideas.

    My Human and I are glad to help any way we can. You can email us too at browndogcbratlive.com

    Y'all come back now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  13. Good luck with your alergies. I wish I could give you some advice, but I don't have any.


  14. Reilly,
    Sorry about your itchy scratchys :(
    Maybe taking your blog back will make you feel better! :)


  15. That puppy sure is cute, but this is YOUR blog after all. Good to hear your bark again!

  16. Happy 4th - a bit late - hope you had a good time.

    Sorry to hear about the allergies - I suffer from them too - worse on my paws - D has some suggestions for things - doesn't cure them sadly but makes my life a little less 'itchy'.

    Lots of licks
    Sally and Paddy

  17. Bummer about all of the allergies, Reilly. We hope you feel better soon.

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  18. Poor Reilly. First the young pup, then the allergies, and then mom totally types in the middle of your post. Hope you get some relief soon.


  19. Allergies are yucky! We finally found some relief for Maizey's eyes by using Animal Apothecary Detox and and Immunity boost from Herbsmith. Today she starts a natural antihistamine called Clear AllerQi, also from Herbsmith. I hope it helps her. Just with the detox and immunity boost she was able to cut down to one or two antihistamine pills a day and she hasn't needed any eye ointment for two days now. Maybe it would help you too. Hope you feel better soon, and we're glad you got your blog back!:)


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