Ziggy - W/E 22nd October 2017
Another week goes by and Ziggy is still bald and itchy. He's been back to the vets this week for skin scrapings and tests as he hasn't been responding to the current medication and by now he should be growing more fur.
We have antibiotics for a week to make sure there is no underlying infection and then back to see the vet at the end of next week to decide what treatment is next for Ziggy. In himself, he is a happy, affectionate boy but despite being bathed every 3 days and medication, he chews and scratches a lot still.
This weekend though he has been busy trying to woo the Labbie he has decided is the girl of his dreams - Lilly:
Ziggy has met Lilly before when he has been to work with me but this weekend she is staying with us and he has decided that he loves her very much. Despite his best efforts, she isn't falling for his charms but he keeps trying to win her affection, giving her little kisses and following her around.
After very muddy and windy walks yesterday this morning we made the most of the sunny morning and went up to the Downs.
Ziggy will be quite sad when Lilly goes back to her family on Tuesday but I'm sure they will see each other again soon.
