A while ago, I wrote how by switching Geordie from Sentinel to Heartgard, I saw a marked improvement in his allergies. Well, Heartgard or no, it is definitely allergy season here!
I know we're not alone in this boat. It seems everyone I talk to complains of their dogs licking all night and suffering from lots of itchies. Poor Geordie is no exception. The little guy has spent the last 3 weeks rolling on his back in the grass or rubbing up against the furniture.
Finally, though, I think he has found a solution for his itching problem: he makes me scratch him. All the time. If I stop, he barks or whines or gives me Sad Puppy Eyes until I give in and start rubbing him again. I wouldn't mind that much, except that he insists in lying juuuust out of my reach so that I have to stretch in order to touch him. I'll insist that he come closer, but then he'll slither down and ooze across the floor until he is juuuust out of reach again.
I hate to wish my life away, but I am very anxious for first frost. I am hoping that whatever is blooming and making both him and me miserable will die so that we can have some relief.
Good luck to all of you dealing with pets with allergies. And, if you have any secrets for dealing with the itching, please feel free to share them with us!
