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!
We are excited for this year’s first frost as it will help us in the battle of the fleas!!
Yipppeeeee for you! And ugh, the thought of fleas makes me itch! 🙁
It sure is awful…but we need to be careful what we wish for in the future – we got snow today!
Rarely any frost here. Woo!
Sadly, we will never be neighbors!
WOO-HOO!!! Such an exciting time! 😉 Enjoy your itch-less winter, boys!
Yay! Cold weather!
Clearly YOU know how much I want to get my Uggs out!
While I don’t love frost, I do love the benefits. Ray is only moderately itchy, and the cold weather alleviates nearly all of it. I, however, rarely find cute boots that fit my weird underpinnings.
I can find boots for ANYONE! Challenge accepted!
I’m always excited for the first frost for my own allergies plus it makes Boomer and Dottie really frisky and that’s awesome for a couple of senior pups!
And it means the end of tick season! Considering I just pulled one off Nola the other day, I can not wait for frost! What is up with this abnormally warm fall? Boo.
Ditto on the love for fall ! Wahooooo – pumpkin, boots, great hair and no itching for our furry friends (well – less anyway). Top it off with Thanksgiving turkey – WHAT a season 🙂
pffffft we’ve already had snow here
Stop on by for a visit
I can sure relate to all of that!! We don’t get much cold around here. The Mom Person likes it that way. I like the cold, but it means no swimming. And that’s a sad thing.
