Itchie Scritchie

Yup! I still got the itchies. Let me tell you... It really stinks.

After discussing this issue with many of you, Mommy is thinking poison ivy or poison oak or poison sumac. Just something that starts with poison in its name. At least it looks like that to my Mommy. Now she's no expert by any means but she's sticking with that theory for the moment. And yes, I was sticking my head and neck into the brush on our walk the other day. So it is possible.

I'm pretty sleepy because of all the Benedryl I have to take. And tonight I started on steroids too. But I will say I love Pill Pockets so it's no problem for me to take pills and I am catching up on my beauty sleep too. (Not that I need more beauty sleep...)

For those of you who asked, we're still in NY for another 2 weeks so no fire ants here.

Thank you everyone for your comments, care and concern. I've we got the best friends!

P.S.  Newby is doing a great job of taking care of me long distance. I know that Marley would do the same, but he's in the process of moving. I LOVE my men.

  1. It's good that you can sleep, so's you can't scratch that itch. Yeap take them pills and get back to normal.

  2. I'm glad you can sleep! (from Dachshund Mommy: do you have the "cone of shame" she can wear if she's itching bad? it helped Boston so much) Get better soon, my BBFF!
    Love ya lots

  3. You just keep getting rest. Not sure where you would put more beauty. I hope the ichy scrachies go away soon.

  4. The itchies are just the worst! You just rest up and try to get better with no itching. Freddie still has the itchies on top of everything else and takes the Benadryl too!

  5. I hope you feel better by Friday, but if not I hope you don't mind if your mom comes by herself to meet me. I really hope you can make it, but I will totally understand if you can't. I wouldn't want you to come if you are all doped up on Benny Drill. I'm a young pup and might be a bit rambunctious if you are not up to par. Feel better soon.


  6. Your right - you don't need any beauty sleep. You're such a beauty already!

    I hope that you feel better soon. Whenever my dogs have broken out in bumps and itches, it's been hives from an allergic reaction. I'm guessing that you've ruled that out... but the benedryl and steroids should help if that's the problem.

    We're thinking of you!

  7. I sure hope that those itchies go away. I get them sometimes too.


  8. I am sorry you have the itchies. I take benedryl too and it makes me sleepy all the time. I get the itchies too and I hope yours go away very very soon.

    Loveys Sasha

  14. Woof to you Lily Belle!!!! I'm so sorry to hear that your itchy saga continues. You poor sweet girl. You're lucky to have such a wonderful and devoted mom to care for you. Much love to you, Muffin and your mom - XXOO - Mazzie
