Luna just got her stitches out yesterday, but otherwise they are no different. Luna has been hard at work being a therapy dog. No real breaks for me at this point, but my schedule is going to change again come July, so we'll see what happens then.
Taro actually used to do that too. It was more frequent when he was around 6- 7 months, and it was at its worse when he had a cold. He hasn't had that problem in months though. It just went away on its own. I hope you'll figure out what it is with the vet!
In the month of August, Taro had a small hot spot on his paw, and he chewed it until it was raw skin with no hair. Then he started having a couple of red dots on his belly; I thought they were bug bites at first, but it suddenly exploded into a rash in a couple of days. Then he started limping from a pain on the paw with the hot spot. I examined his paw, and it was super moist between the webs. It was also swollen and had abrasions. I took him to the vet, and it turns out that Taro had an allergic reaction on his paw, which lead to a bacteria infection. As for the rashes, the vet said that Taro had an allergic reaction to something in the heat. He couldn't tell us what it is for sure without tests, but he said it is very common in the summer, and the problem should go away in the fall. The allergy test would only be necessary if the problem persisted in cool weather. The vet gave him a steroid shot, some antibiotics, and a medicated shampoo for his rashes. His rashes and bacteria infection disappeared in about 5 days after using the shampoo. Ever since then, one or two red spots pop up occasionally as well as rashes on his paws. We use the shampoo, and he's fine again. Since the weather cooled down in the past couple of weeks, he hasn't had any break outs. I suspect Taro just has really sensitive skin because when he was 2 months old, he often had irritations on the skin around his eye, and he also gets sunburned pretty easily. Once, his nose got sun burned after hiking. Does Zoe have similar symptoms?
Zoe looks adorable. I can't believe the corgis are one already, and it has been almost one year since we picked them up. Taro weighed 30 pounds at 11.5 months, and he has been filling out ever since, so I think he's a little over that now. He is a huge corgi, but he's definitely not overweight, and I can't believe he's still going to grow in width. How much does Zoe weigh now?
Two is so much more fun! We had a little party for Luna. Justice and Liberty of the Prichett pack came over to play and the pups had cake and ice cream, plus each took home a cookie. They are exhausted!
Good luck with your move! I'm sure Zoe will be a big help with packing.
Luna is doing really well. She's learning a few tricks like play dead, crawl, and a few others. We'll be restarting her therapy dog class next weekend as well.
Thanks on the congrats for Twinkie. She and Luna are doing well together and it's tons of fun having two of them around. Luna is getting her to come out of her shell a little more by acting like a puppy who wants to play. It's very cute.
Thank you for asking about my babies. They are brother and sister, named Winky (she is blind in one eye so we thought the name fit), and her brother is Blinky. We call them Wink and Blink. They are truly the best part of my day. I never knew how much crazy in love a person could be with a "dog". I love seeing your pics, and videos, so keep posting!!
