LUCKIE'S SIGNALING THE DOG DAYS OF SUMMER ARE HERE!
Luckie is already in mode for dog days of summer, which usually is August. Reckon she knows something we don't know???
She has abandoned her small rugs, the bed, and her chair for cool spots on vinyl flooring in a small, dark , cooler hallway!
Already shedding hair, she's picked up the pace. Further, she is gnawing at what appears to be "hot spots" faster than I can spray the Hydrocortisone 1% Lotion Spray. If it doesn't improve, she will visit her most un-popular spa, the vet's office.
A few "hot spots" are devoid of hair, but not yet bleeding. She goes to doggie beauty shop Saturday, after which I'll dump more Hydrocortisone 1% Lotion Spray on the "hot spots." If spots enlarge or bleed, she'll visit her vet.
Luckie looks like a "huge" German Shepherd in this photo. However, she is a 39 pound dynamo mixed breed, Heinz 57 dog.
The current temperature is 93 degrees- feels like 99 degrees. There is a slight chance of isolated showers. Don't bet the farm on it! We have a soaker hose on our newer shrubs and trees.
