I am not sure how many of you are aware of this, but about 2 years ago I started losing my hair. This is due to my allergies and liver condition. Mommy and Daddy have me under strict vet care and I'm on several medications to help.
We are not really sure what caused the latest hair loss, but it always seems a lot worse in the winter. Around Christmas time we had a real cold spell with a lot of snow. Within a week nearly all the hair on the top of my head had fallen out. Mommy was crushed by this.
Other than the latest hair loss, I'm hanging in there. My boyfriend Pinky comes over quite often to see me. At first Pinky was not very fond of Vlad and I, but once he got used to our little pack, he became one of the family. At first he'd just growl at me, now he loves to snuggle :) I cannot wait to see him again :)
So that is the news, bald but living the good life. We got new beds at Christmas from Grandma, Grandpa and my Aunt and Uncle! :)
Hope all you other pups are doing well. Mom is posting a picture of me taken yesterday with my new doggles. Due to my hair loss, I need them and doggie sunscreen for the summer! Don't worry Mom removed the stickers after she took the photo!

When I was alive I had skin allergies, mommy changed my food and it helped too. My problem was wheat and corn.
Thank you for your suggestion. We have been done the entire food allergy inspection route. We wish their was a solution for it, but I should live to be about 11 or so. Not so bad for a dog with my problems. :) Thank you again Maggie! Super hugs, no matter where you are :)
Hi, Delilah! I'm really impressed that you will wear sunglasses! Mom got me some because I have an eye condition that hurts my eyes in sunlight, but I don't like them. Did it take you a long time to get used to them?
(My mom's grandparents are all from the Netherlands and she still has some relatives there.)
Hope you get better soon ((( hugs )))
Well this was my first time wearing the glasses, I am not 100% fond of them, but I will get there. I'm a very patient dog and used to being handled so much due to my illness. I've even had weekly accupuncture treatments for awhile! :)
I suggest trying them for a few minutes a day, with a reward and having your Mommy talk to you very calmly as you get used to them. Good luck and I'd love to see you wearing them :) HUGS from Delilah!
Thanks Maggie! :) Super pup hugs!
Patch, do you ever come over to visit? I'd love to have a play day! :)
