Riggs' itching continues. We have special shampoo and conditioner, hypoallergenic treats, wipes for his face and now he will be on Benadryl twice a day. So far the food does not seem to be making a difference. Poor guy, I cannot imagine being itchy all day every day. At least he is not scratching himself so hard that he is making his skin raw.

I wish I had the camera with me today. Riggs loves to chase the leaves blowing in the wind. Living in Florida fall does not get here till January and so the leaves are falling off the trees and blowing down the street and Riggs takes off after them. Although so many leaves are blowing he cannot decided on which one to chase. He eventually catches up to one and grabs it in his mouth but then proceeds to drop it because another leaf went flying by him that he must pursue.

Can we please stop getting stuffed animals that make noises? Welcome another annoying sounding animal to the mix. This is Toro the cow that makes a moooooooo sound that Riggs likes to squeeze over and over.

So with Riggs into his food trial now, we needed to figure out something we could give to him as a treat. Most of the treats we found at the pet store were off limits. The vet suggested carrots. We got a bag of carrots and sure enough he likes them. I am now just waiting for Riggs to grow some long pointy ears and a bushy tail.

Riggs continues to itch and scratch himself nonstop. He primarily scratches his black muzzle area. We are thinking he might have a food allergy and the vet has recommended we start him on a food trial to see if he gets better. So sorry bud no more tasty beef flavored dry dog food. Sweet potatoes and veal instead.
