Hi furends, Lily Belle here.

Well I can tell you one thing.... I'm not going to be very happy today! I saw our dog crate come out of retirement (aka the garage) and was put back together. That can only mean 1 thing..... ROAD TRIP! As you know, I HATE being crated. Absolutely, HATE it!! Muffin will be in all her glory just sleeping away in the crate.

Unfortunately, I am taking a trip to the doggie dermatologist today. This specialist is about 2 hours away. Our Vet has tried everything to cure my itchy skin to no avail. She has spent over $1,000 so far at our Vet. Mommy said something about selling pencils on the street corner to pay for this dermatology visit.

This is my back. (Hard to get a good picture) Overnight and out of nowhere I break out in scabs. Then whatever it is, is like eating my skin off. This is happening all over by body. Where I have fur, this happens. I have lot's of bald patches because of this. It is itchy, crusty and just nasty. Mommy said I'm allergic to Florida bcuz this never happened when I was in NY. 

It is affecting 75% of my body so far. Every day it gets worse.

The Vet will also look at that lump on my eyelid. I scratched it off the other day and Mommy took it to our Vet for testing. This is the 2nd time I've rubbed it off. Yup, left blood all over the place. We hope to have the results this week. It already is growing back again. Mommy said you can see "the red root" attached to the lump and it goes under my eye lid.

Taken Sunday

Taken Monday. It's now filling with blood.

G-Pa Bob always said that old age ain't for woosies! Guess he was right.....

Wish me luck!

    We are sending you POTP. Ugh, that skin problem looks nasty and must feel worse. And we're very concerned about your eye. Growing old sucks.

    Sending you good peaceful calm feelings for the crate trip, and lots of love to your mommy. We hope the specialist figures out these problems.

    Much love & more wags,
    Tootsie & her mom

  11. Good luck, L. Please keep us posted. Mom and I said a prayer for your doctor to be wise and have good ideas to help you heal. Meanwhile, they are saying the word dermatologist around here, too for my itchy face. It's taking too long to heal.

    Love and licks,


Lily Belle & Muffin would love to hear from you!
