Mom has been pretty busy lately working and stuff so she and dad have worked out a pretty nice system to make it up to us. Every Saturday night for the past few weeks, mom and dad have been taking us out to some park like place where we can see people and boats and all kinds of stuff. The best part about it is that mom and dad let us get in the water...well, that is they let Finnegan and I get in the water and lately just Finnegan because I have been having skin problems and mom won't let me in. Ollie doesn't have much interest in the water and besides if he gets wet he is wet for a week. (Well that is an exaggeration but mom always says it, so I will too!)

Little Finnegan has decided he really likes the water and has been playing in my sprinkler out back too. I may have to eat him for this. It is most definitely MY sprinkler and I didn't see anything about sharing him in the agreement mom and I had when she asked if she could bring home another WFT. Sheez.

On a bad note, I've been having skin problems all of the sudden. Mom has always felt lucky because she knows of so many WFT's who have skin problems and I have always done so well. Not really sure why I have them. Mom and Dad have had me on a really high quality food and treats too, but still I have been getting hot spots. Mom got a new bag of Natural Balance Potato and Duck formula for allergies and we'll see if that helps. I sure hope so; I'm tired of being itchy!

Poor Mackie,
Got the itchies? That's too bad. We hope you feel better soon. Maybe the dog food will help, otherwise it could just be from the hot & muggy weather.
On a sad note, in case you haven't heard it yet, poor Oscar the airedale passed away this morning. He got really sick yesterday & was gone this morning, so sad.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Hi Mackie,
Skin problems are no fun. I hope they clear up really fast for you. Mackie, you need to check out Oscar's blog. It's very, very, very sad.

I got itchies too guys, but mainly my paws and Mom and Dad don't know what to do. I take benedryl and next week I have a vet visit cos I need some shots. I did have a flea a while back so M and D are neurotic and check me every day. I'm sorry to hear you can't swim Mackie, that's tough, and so sorry that Finn is getting the itchy curse too. I am on Natural Balance too but not the allergy formula...maybe mom will buy that next time. Tomorrow I'm going to visit Pepper and his fam. I might stay with them when Mom and Dad piss off to South Africa.
