Is He Expectin'...

By the looks of my hub's belly, you would think he was.



But before ya call The National Enquirer, look real close...



See those lil' paws stickin' out?


Our poor lil' Grace has been quite sick since she developed a severe allergy to her dog food this week. The vet said some dogs between the ages of 2 and 3 develop them.


When she's feelin' like heck, she likes to curl up next to my hub's belly and sleep.


I can't help but laugh when I see these two together. Prior to gettin' her, he swore our next dog would be a gigantic Irish Wolfhound. A real manly dog! One he could play and wrestle with.


Instead he has a wee Chihuahua who has him wrapped around her tiny paw. I'm sooo tempted to get him leopard print shoes with a matchin' tote to carry her in.



Thankfully, she is on the road to recovery.


These past 72 hours I have spent a small fortune on canned and dry dog food. I literally have 5 new brands of dry food and 2 of canned and she sniffs it, turns her snout up and walks away.


But if she hears me open a bag of Kettle Salt and Fresh Ground Pepper Potato Chips, *poof* she appears out of nowhere like David Copperfield in a Vegas act; just waitin' for me to drop one. Then *poof* she mysteriously disappears again.


Oh and for the record, I did not take her to the vet, hubs did. I still have the battle scars from her last visit.

Karin, funny you mentioned allergies..our calico kitty developed an allergy to her food and it looked like she had black zits under chin..it now goes to her hoochy coochy if she has gotten into the wrong food..she is on prednislone (the animal one) and will be on it for pretty much her whole life..she has to be on a gluten, rice free diet..high in protein low in grains..no grains..and boy can she clear a room when she goes poopy...oh my gosh...she is truly our "smelly Cat"...that song was meant for her...lol...she still gets occasional breakouts..she is stealth when sneaking the bad stuff. the others hate her food and she LOVES theirs..so we have to be on her constantly...hope your stinky puppy is doing better..(that is what I call all dogs) whether they smell good or not..have a great day!!!:)
