TAIL TALE OF TWO DOUGS
This week has been a bit of a trial. Doug has alopecia, which is basically hair loss, which as it turns out is fairly common in elderly poodles. Doug turned 16 in November, so he’s lucky to have any hair at all! In the interest of helping him with the embarrassment of becoming a pink dog, he has been having twice weekly medicated baths and a trial of Prednisone. While you would not expect it to be so, the baths were the least of our problems.
Until finally after 24 hours of ornery, panicked, high-strung behavior you finally give into the other meds they’ve given you in hopes of helping you calm down. But, beware, you are still very vigilant and will not let anyone free from your grasp, so people may need to pull the old-pillow-under-the -bed-sheet-trick just to get a moment to themselves!
