Kelly, Henry has suddenly had ear troubles, so I purchased some cleaning solution from the Vet, and one quick clean, and he's already better. Oliver has never had eye or ear issues...go figure, he's had enough other things I suppose.
As was predicted from the extremely mild winter, allergies and allergens are going to be a lot greater this year than ever before. The ears are relatively easy to maintain, and your suggestion of clipping inside Georgia's ears is a good one! I would be careful with the eyes, as it could be anything from irritation to conjunctivitis, which you can contract. (I caught it from one of our horses years ago. I should buy more Lottery tickets!
Today we had a humidex reading of 38C, and as I type this now, at 10:22 p.m. it is still 81F outside.
This is not good for Oliver. We kept him in all day, except of course for the necessary trips outdoors. He is doing well, but I hope the entire summer isn't going to be THIS hot.
I am going away, all by myself, from June 10th to the 24th to visit my dear friend Phyrie in British Columbia. I don't know how much I'll be around during my vacation, although I do intend on purchasing a laptop and hopefully staying somewhat connected.
I mention this for two reasons...1. I am going to miss Oliver and Henry like stink! I can call my "humans" and say hello, but it doesn't quite translate with the dogs. 2. Oliver is glued to me all evening, all day and all night. Henry "spreads the wealth" a bit more than Oliver, but he too wants Mummy if there is a Thunderstorm, or people yell, or just because.
This is my first vacation ALONE without anyone else in 20 years. The longest I've ever left Oliver is 10 days, and he was with his "Grandma" and I've never left Henry! I'm not the least bit concerned about my sons, and they are quite happy to help me pack.
Other changes are occurring at the same time in our household and we are downsizing by one adult, which is for the best.
Kelly, I hope you find what works for Georgia over the next several months, especially with her eyes. Please do keep us posted angel.
Two more weeks, actually less than by one day, and I'm on my first real vacation since 2009! It is time!
