Mom got the large size and worked her sewing magic on it so she would be happy with the "fit". By the time she was finished "modifying" my jacket, the only things exposed to the elements were my nose and paws. Dad refers to my jacket as Molly's "body condom". Of course Mom gives him the "evil eye".
I am a pup that likes to be "one" with nature. I want to feel the wind in my hair and the sun on my face. (Or should nature dictate the rain on my fur and the mud on my tummy).
That is until this past week. Even Mom's body condom rain jacket can't help a pup when it's rained for 6 weeks and more forecasted. It seems that I Molly the delicate daffodil (snorts with laughter) have gotten a wee bit of a bacterial skin infection due to all the wet.
I get little itchy bumps that are a bit smelly when you scratch them every now and then. It now seems that damp and wet can bring them about. Mom noticed the aroma the other day and then again today while she and I were playing. ( I like to jump on Mom's face and hold her down with my paw while I give her kisses up her nose and on her eyes). Mom squeals with delight every time we play this game.
As you can imagine there was the ooh not so fun trip to the doctor's office. It didn't take Mom and my dogtor long to find a prime example of one of my smelly bumps. After a microscopic exam, prescribed meds, and a slow lengthy trip home I am now resting on my heated bed taking a much deserved nap. Dreaming of days filled with sunshine, warm temps and lots of squirrels to chase.
Not only does the rainy weather deprive me of my outside times it now has to give me itchy smelly bumps that require Mom to spray me with an icky smelly substance a smear a foul smelling ointment on my bumps. I'll say it again Rain Rain Go Away.
Love, Molly the itchy smelly Dachshund and my Mom
