Kari in Vegas (here) asked if I’m afraid of thunder? Actually, I’m not afraid of thunder, fireworks all around or gunshots near or far. It’s just part of living in very rural areas. It’s also a part of life for many retrievers.
Melissa, over at Puppy Kisses (here) is having allergy problems. Her dog Jada has an unusual problem with the pads of her feet having an allergic reaction. It would appear the vet may be on the right track to treating the problem.
The problem with allergies is that you usually have to be treated constantly. It’s something the Humans learn to control, but it rarely eliminates all allergic reactions. I still have reactions, so the Humans must remain diligent in prevention efforts and controlling outbreaks when they occur.
Melissa and Jada, I’m so glad you found us. If you have any questions my Human or I can answer, feel free to comment or email me at browndogatlive.com
Stella also asks if it is a healthy life style for me. My point was to keep the Humans exercised so they would stay fit and be able to keep up with me. However, I guess the exercise works both ways and it’s keeping me fit and healthy too.
Stella’s final question is “who are your walking mates.” I consider my mates my 2 Humans. However, once in a while I meet someone on our walks or hikes. In the end we usually all continue on our separate ways.
Gizmo, Bart and Ruby (here) asks if I am near the Thundering Herd (here) when we’re here in the mountains. This is difficult to answer. We aren’t too far as the crow flies. We are north up the mountain range from the Herd. However, road miles we are about 90 miles. Driving time can be an entirely different can of worms. Literally. It took the Humans half an hour to go down a 10 mile switch back mountain road the other day. By the way, most roads are narrow with NO guard rails. I won’t tell you how long it took to return.
Tomorrow I’ll tell y’all how I spent my day alone…and I think you’ll remember the fellow who kept me entertained part of the day.
Y’all come back now!
