Summer Blues

Not another Vet visit!
Some of the worst news ever for a dog..... 
Quarantine! Nooooooeos! 


Somewhere in our adventures, we picked up Ringworm. Which isnt a worm at all but simply a fungal infection... It totally snuck up on us. First I noticed Taricha had what I thought were bug bites, like a tick had grabbed hold and fell off (which happens often) but didnt think much of it. She's very thin fur'ed, some of the white is almost translucent, so every blemish is easily seen. Only two days later, she's breaking out all over..... so am I and so are the cats. Little round red spots that look like burns. UGHhhhhhh! 

So we're spending a while tucked away in the house fighting this. Everyone has gotten coatings of very stinky substances and will continue to be tortured as such every few days. All beds, pillows and blankets are off to the cleaners. Carpets and hardwoods scrubbed. The only activity we can risk are walks... no playdates, no dog parks, no pet stores. We're fighting it and we're going to win. It's just a tad boring in the meantime.

PS. We're so thankful this is not an ITCHY version.


  1. What a nightmare....hope those things go away quick
