My little doggie is having terrible trouble with allergies right now. She scratches like crazy all the time. Guess it's not unusual--our vet told Mom yesterday that 90% of the people they saw yesterday were in because their dogs were scratching. Mom's got her dog on steroids, but I'm reluctant to do that, so I'm washing Cassie's feet every time we come in and trying to help her be comfortable the best I can.
Meanwhile, her scratching has been driving us crazy at night, even Evan, whose room is at the opposite end of the house. All night long, we hear jingle, jingle, jingle. She's right next to me in bed, and it gets a little crazy-making.
Last night I got the bright idea of taking her collar off for the night.
What took me so long?
