Welcome to one of my most favorite weeks! This my friends is the week of (the weatherman best not be screwing with me) the first frost! Yes, I love fall. It’s good hair weather, it begins boot season, it’s visually lovely and cheeks take on a rosy glow. But the first frost, that is the day we dance and sing! Frost puts half of Melvin’s allergies into hibernation! It’s a magical time, it happens LITERALLY overnight.
Thanks to medications, regular baths, baby-wipes and a strict diet, Melvin is now only twice as itchy as other dogs. From the first frost to spring, HE IS ALMOST A NORMAL AMOUNT OF ITCHY (as long as we keep those things up and add a humidifier). He even goes from being red, to only moderately pink. Woohooo!
And this year, Jake is with us for the first frost. Itchy dog #2 will get relief now also! We shall dance extra and sing a little more loudly! WOOT!
