Mom took me for a walk!!!!!

It worked!!! Mom took Darius & I out for a walk a couple of days ago. We were out for over an hour and I got to see some other dogs. They were big and were black and white and brown. They didn't seem very interested in playing with us so we just kept walking. Mom got upset at Darius & I because we kept wanting to run after the deer. Maybe that's why we didn't go for a walk yesterday. Of course it could be because Mom wasn't feeling very good. She said something about a headache. I don't know what that is, but I hope it doesn't happen again tonight because Mom said something about if it didn't rain we could go for a walk tonight.


Mom's Working Tooo Much

Boy I hate it when classes start at college. That means that Mom doesn't have as much time for me. This morning it seemed that we woudl be able to have the whole day together, but no, she had to leave to go to school. Something about a meet & greet with prospective students and parents. She did promise to take Darius & me walking when she got home. She also promised to stay home with us all day tomorrow. We'll see about that.


Mom Lied to Me!!!!!

Well Mom didn't take us for a walk on Saturday like she promised, but she did take time to play with me, both inside and when we went outside in the yard. I told her just how unhappy I was with my ROO ROOs but that didn't seem to do any good. She did stay home with us yesterday, but I was mad at her so I stayed outside most of the afternoon. That'll teach her to lie to me.


My Hair is Falling Out

My hair keeps falling out in patches and Mom seems to be at the end of her rope. Earlier this year she got me medication for what Dr. K said was a staph infection, but I can't seem to grow may hair back and it is starting to fall out in patches again. Mom told me this morming we're going to see Dr. K later this week and she promises to get things figured out. I hope it doesn't mean that I won't see Mom because I have to stay with Dr. K. He's nice and all but I don't want to be away from Mom and Darius.


More Medicine & an E-Collar!!!!

Well, Dr. K still wasn't back from his vacation so I saw Dr. P today. We can't seem to figure out what is wrong with me. I'm losing hair and getting "pimples" that make me scratch and "gnaw" on parts of my body. When we got to Dr. K's office Ryan (my favorite tech) said he like'd Mom's answering machine message and we all laughed about it. Then it was down to work. Skin scrapings showed that I didn't have mange, the Woods Lamp showed I don't have ringworm. (Mom suspected both of these anyway). Staining some of the goo from a pimple showed that I didn't have an infection in my blood. Needless to say we are stumped!!! The thought is that staph infection on my skin is coming back and that I might be allegic to something. Ryan shaved my sores and cleaned me up and then Mom got my medicine and a funny looking thing that she called an E-collar. I'm going to be on antibiotics, steroids, and antihistamines for a while and I have to wear this E-collar thing when Mom can't watch me. I HATE THE E-COLLAR!!!!!! I'm hoping this is the worst of things, but for some reason I don't think it is. I heard something about a bath twice a week, but I'm hoping that isn't true.


Vacation time!!!!

Mom told me this morning before she left for work that we're going on a vacation tomorrow. She said that we would be going to spend some time in the Davis Mountains. We're going to go for a drive and do some hiking. I can't wait. This will be my first real vacation with my new family.


Mom's Worried

I don't know why Mom's so worried. I know that this skin problem isn't going away, but I'm feeling o.k. I'm even trying to be good when she gives me a bath what seems like every other day. So what if I look like I've been to see a bad barber. I'm still the ever lovable Kea girl. In fact I even got up in her lap this morning for some one-to-one time with Mom before Darius could spoil it for us. I know Mom will do the best things for me, that's why I love her so much. I just hope that I'll be rid of this darn E-collar some time soon. I just gotta figure out a way to cheer up Mom this weekend.


More Skin Problems

Boy is this frustrating. I can't seem to get rid of the staph infection that I have. I'm now on another type of antibiotic and I still get baths TWICE a week. Mom seems to be really worried about me, but I keep trying to tell her that I'll be o.k. She just doesn't seem to believe me. She should look closer, becasue some of my hair is coming back in.


When will it end??

Well, I now have a diagnosis. Mom and I went to see Dr. K last week because my skin wasn't getting any better. In fact it was getting WORSE. Mom asked Dr. K to do a skin scraping to check for demodex even though Dr. P had checked before when Dr. K was on vacation. Dr. K didn't think that it was demondex because of my age and the way I was losing hair, but after he checked he found out that I did have demondex. He told me that I would have to get both a bath and a dip each week for at least 5 weeks. Hopefully that will clear things up. Mom is really grateful that she at least now knows what is wrong. People may think I look funny with all the patches of lost hair, but mom loves me and Darius does too. He actually misses me when I'm at the vet for my dip.


I'm Getting My Hair Back

I can't believe it, my hair is coming back in!!!!! I may not like going to Dr. K's office each week for a bath and dip, but it seems to be working. Mom tells me that I get more hair each and every day. She hasn't told me how much longer I have to get a weekly bath and dip, but it is sure worth it. I'm so surprised that Mom has been home so much these days. She's said it is something called a "Break". I don't know what this is, but I really like it. We have been going for walks and I've had so much fun. Darius is getting a little bit grouchy at me, I don't know why, but even that isn't going to get me down these days. I can't wait to see where we go walking later today!!!!!!
