Seasonal allergies & suspensions

Where we live, there is lots of itch-inducing stuff called Pollen that floats around in the air before sticking to Mom's car and making it yellow. I am an allergy-prone pup, and this time of year tends to make my skin turn bright pink and sometimes I even get hot spots from being so itchy.

It's so bad that I've decided I like baths! I don't like the soaking or the rinsing, but the lathering with my special anti-itch shampoo feels so good, and I feel much less itchy when it's over.

Recently Mom found two hot spots on me, so she had to clean them off and now she's always spraying me with this stupid spray stuff. It makes them heal and feel better, but told me it's a steroid. I sure hope I don't get suspended for 50 games, like that Manny Ramirez guy. 50 GAMES?!?! That's like a TWO-HOUR suspension. How could I survive that?!?

Hey man. There's a natural hot spot treatment that may be worth giving a try~

3/4 witch hazel
1/4 aloe vera gel
a few drops of lavender essential oil (the REAL stuff, not the lavender smelly stuff)

If your spots aren't too bad, this may help. According to Chinese medicine, these ingredients are cooling and have worked really well for some. But keep the oil away from any cats and birds. They can't have it on them.

Wouldn't want you to be suspended!!

We hope the itchies get better and no suspensions are in your future.

Just don't get any prescriptions with illegal stuff...BOL

I know...50 games is like 100 years, and surely you won't be out of commission that long.

You are not going to get suspended, unless you grow dreads, then I might have to suspend you from being my friend because they kinda gross me out.
