Ello - it's me Denny !

Shhhh come closer - I have something to share but I don't want the Big Dog to hear. There is a reason you haven't seen much of him on his bloggie lately - see the Big Dog is a bit embarrassed. As some of you know he has been having some major problems with his allergies and this week Mom and Dad are taking him to see a specialist dermatologist vet in Memphis. In the meantime though the big dog has been shedding his coat - like excessively and he's a bit embarrassed about how thin it has got. I keep telling him he is still the most handsome biggest brother but he just grumbles about me being a "Wuzster". Mom and Dad tried everything they and local vet could think of to help him but nothing has worked. They have searched the internet and read everything they could on the matter. Sadly the specialist may have to shave his side so they can do some patch testing - he is not happy about that but Mom keeps telling him if it helps find out what is causing his allergies and we can treat it - then his beautiful fur will grow back and he won't be so itchy scratchy. Keep your paws crossed that the vet can do something for the Big Dog as he really isn't a happy or comfortable Big Dog at the moment.


  1. Hope they find whats wrong. Keeping my big paws crossed for the Big Dog.

  2. Oh poor Reilly! Why does he have to have so many problems. Thanks for letting us know, Denny. Hope his visit to the specialist helps!

  3. Good Luck Reilly! We did scratch testing with Felix. Wowza! That boy is allergic to *everything*! I hope you feel better soon.

  4. Thanks for letting us know, Denny.
    Our paws are crossed that the vet can help Reilly. It's no fun being itchy all the time!

    Love ya lots

  5. Oh dear Denny! I hope the specialist can help your big brother. Tell him not to be too vain about his beautiful coat, it will come back. But we hope he feels better soon!!

  6. Well, as Mom always tells us, the fur will grow back and our beauty is on the inside anyway. But we all have our paws crossed that you are able to get some good answers and a plan for Reilly to be better. Have they looked at the possibility of Cushing's - that does cause significant hair loss.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  7. Well, I've got my little girls crossing their paws and I'm crossing my fingers because we are keeping the faith that the big city doc will find out the cause and fix Reilly right up. Thanks for the update Denny. P.S., Sugar and Meeka say hi.

  8. This happened to my Uncle Harley, the pug. He had to go on allergy shots! Hope Reilly gets some answers at the specialist!

  9. Hope they find out what's up with Reilly real soon; it's not fun being itchy all the time. But Shelties are beautiful coat or no coat.

  10. Sending lotsa woofs & hugs your way!
