The Diary of Bows

Other than Buttons, Bows hasn't liked other dogs very much. I'm not sure if she misses Beamer at all. She will sometimes sleep in his favorite spot, but I'm not sure if she does it because of him, or because she realized why he liked that spot so much (slate in front of fireplace-nice and cool). Now she has a new brother, Shadow, who we were suppose to foster, but decided to adopt instead. She growls at Shadow whenever he gets too close when she is laying down, just like she did with Beamer and the grandson. But the wife said she seems to get along with him better at times, so we'll see how things go.

We are still fighting Bow's skin problems. The vets keep telling us it's a skin infection and the antibiotics work, but they keep saying it's due to allergies. Well, I decided to check things out on the internet. I'm really tired of going through this every spring & summer. It appears that this is called "hot spots" and is caused by moisture that is trapped in the fur and allows bacteria to grow which causes the infection. So next spring, we will have her stomach shaved and perhaps the rest of her fur cut close. Hopefully that will be the end of this crap.
