Itchy Ziggy

Poor Baldy Dog Ziggy is still itchy as we continue to try and get him better.  He saw the dermatology specialist a few weeks ago and had more tests done, which sadly have shown that on top of his allergies he has a bacterial skin infection which is resistant to the antibiotics and other medications he has been given so far.

So, he is on different medication and having a bath every 2 to 3 days as well as Yumega Itchy Dog supplement added to his prescription kibble and we are back to see the dermatologist later this coming week. 

Despite his rather threadbare exterior on the inside he is very affectionate and lovely, a happy boy and loves his cuddles and playing with his toys.  

He loves Sofy and today she wanted to come out with us so we went up to the old railway track and they got to kick up some mud:

I tried to get a photo of them together, but Ziggy hasn't learnt yet that the idea is to sit next to each other:

By the time Ziggy sat and faced the right way, Sofy had got bored and was off again: 

Sofy was happy to have a rest on the bench:

And Ziggy was happy to get into a muddy puddle:

Back to the beginning of the walk, practising their positions for the obligatory photo!

Bless him despite all his problems he is a happy boy and lovely to see dear Sofy too. Hope you’re able to alleviate the itching for him xxx

I'm so glad that it's not just me that has trouble posing when I'm with another pup! On my own I just sit but when I'm with a friend we always make sure we never look the same way at the same time BOL. How people get a whole row of labradors or spaniels to sit nicely is beyond us!
Can't be nice having itchy bits, hope you find something that helps.
Not long now until we will all be walking in the sunshine and not squishing around in mud... can't wait!
