|She hates having her picture taken|
The other day when I mentioned being tired....well, I had taken Nitty, my Rottweiller to the vet. She had been in earlier this Spring and I told him then that she seemed to be scratching more than usual but he checked her out and saw nothing. We came home and she continued to scratch and one day I checked her and noticed that she was scratching the hair right off behind her ears and under her front legs. Both my girls are on flea and tick medicine so I knew that wasn't it. Since the doctor said he saw nothing wrong I immediately thought it must be a food allergy so off I went researching organic and pure dog foods with no fillers etc. and gathering recipes to make my own dog treats and on and on. Meanwhile, the poor dog is trying to scratch her eyes and spending the majority of the day scratching some part of her body. Of course my eyes were giving me fits and I was sneezing to beat the band but I paid no attention to the obvious and kept right on going down that food trail I'd forged.
|See how she turns away....I think it's the flash. Can't say I blame her!|
I'm happy to report that she has now stopped scratching, her eyes are bright and cheerful again and she's back to her old self! And now that Nitty's feeling better and happy we're all feeling better and happy...well I'm still sneezing and my eyes are watering and the ticks continue to bite me....hmmm......something wrong with that picture.
P.S. Thank you Elaine! And Nitty thanks you too!
