Well, I guess Bella's allergies weren't as in check as I thought they were. She's been getting hives (or what look like hives) about twice a week. She never seems to be bothered by them, though. She never scratches or otherwise indicates that she's uncomfortable. I'm really glad that we got a new vet who doesn't charge exam fees each time we take the dogs in. I have a feeling Bella is going to be spending a lot of time there this summer. :)

I just snapped this picture a minute ago, after Bella had been outside for about 10-15 minutes:

Would you say those are hives? I'm not even sure. They're only on the left side of her body. She wasn't lying down in the grass on that side, so I'm not sure why they're only on that side!

Dixie has developed allergies since her pregnancy-weird huh? She gets them too. She had started them when she was pregnant and the oak ws in bloom. They started on her back of her legs where the pollen got kicked up when she walked, then spread all over her body. She couldnt take anything due to her pregnancy. After the pups were weaned, we got her cleared up. But she still gets the bumps. I thought hives too, but Dixies dont go away easy. So then I thought heat bumps, we are in Florida, but no.........she gets them too.

Cato has about 5 smack on top of his head, just bumps, dont seem to bother him. They arent scratchy or red or anything, just 5 small bumps!

Dixie now takes atarax every day, it seems to work ok. But man, after her pregnancy, she lost every bit of hair almost and had a good round of steroids for weeks!

But, now swimming time again, and she also breaks out from the chlorine! Greeeeeaaaatttttt!
