Baths are one of my favorite things! I just love water...any kind of water. After I get a bath I get a blow dry...I love it! Jackson tries to steal my blow dry time (he HATES water...all kinds of water). After my bath and blow dry I am very exhausted so I go to sleep. Today I got to sleep with a warm towel over me...it was so warm and comfortable that I slept for 3 hours straight!

You see, my mom has tried everything for all my allergies but nothing has worked. Well, a month ago my mom had Dr. Garner come to the house and she gave me acupuncture. Today was my second treatment.
Dr. Garner makes me feel so good! She tells me how happy and healthy I am AND she tells me I am a GOOD Girl. I love being a good girl!
The hardest part of acupuncture is staying still. My mom has to lay by me so I don't get up during treatment. 30 minutes is a long time for me to stay still!
Dr. Garner told my mom that I am allergic to all grain and dairy products (in addition to the other 20 environmental allergens I have). So, this means I don't get regular dog food anymore!
My mom cooks mustard greens, mushrooms, and beets for me. Then, she tops it all off with turkey! I love turkey almost as much as I love acupuncture.
After acupuncture I feel so relaxed.

I really love the Vet, but not today. Today I had a severe allergic reaction to something (at least, that is what my mom told me). It all started when my mom was about to leave for work and noticed me scooting across the floor on my belly and scratching really bad. She made me roll over so she could see why I was behaving badly...she even called my dad in to look at my belly. My mom got really upset and scared when Dad (he's a nurse) said I needed to go to the Vet because my Dad never encourages trips to the Vet! I had huge red bumps all over my belly and my eyelids and feet were swelling. My mom wanted to take a picture of my belly but I wouldn't let her...I really didn't feel very good. So, she took this picture instead.
The Vet told my mom that I must have eaten something I was allergic to or maybe I "got into something in the backyard"...but, I didn't do anything - I swear. The Vet made me feel better with a shot...I didn't even care about getting a shot because the hives were getting worse and I had a slight fever. I feel better now and my hives barely itch anymore. Mom says I have to stay on medication for a few days, but that doesn't bother me because I get those little pills wrapped in turkey! I love turkey!

I love playing with my Dad!
We wrestle every night before bed and it's one of the highlights of my day! My favorite is when he puts me on my back and slides me across the wood floors. Then, I run back and jump into his lap. We play like this for a long time...until Kramer comes in the room and attacks us. Then we have to stop. Kramer ruins all my fun!
