Santa very kindly brought the dog a nice warm sweater for Christmas this year. She was thrilled.
Dog update: the allergies. It's not as bad as it was last time. She's only been steadily scratching off most of her fur. There's still some left. Really, when she's wearing a coat that has a hood, she looks almost normal. Of course, when she's not wearing anything, she looks... well...
It's getting cold enough that she seems to have accepted the need to wear something; she no longer plots how to get rid of the sweater. Maybe she likes this one better.
P.S. Yes, the dog has been tested. She's allergic to Oregon. If she moves to California, she gets better. But she's made it clear that she'd rather be here with me than down there with my family. The vets have ran out of suggestions, besides steroids, steroids, and steroids.
Exercise du jour: Gentle walking and yoga. I'm going to get this leg better, IamIamIam. Fail. The inner slug won out. The leg got rested, anyway.
