Mischief Monday - I Ear You

We are back! Lady has returned from trip 6 this year (while on trip 6 she planned trip 9 . . . . it is a work trip. We really wonder if she likes to be home).  At any rate, the Man did a fine job caring for us in her absence. We were very excited to have her home Friday night and just couldn't stop sniffing her and getting pets.

So while she is living the glamours, jet setting life (Editor's note: Lady would like to put on the record that it is far more glamours than it sounds, it is downright exhausting, especially when you work the equivalent of 2 weeks in 1 . . .), we have been fine.

The only real problem we have right now is Phod's ears. In spite of the fact that the Lady and Man are cleaning them at least daily, he just can't shake the problems. They are very dirty, and they get itchy, and he scratches them until they bleed. We assume it is related to environmental allergies. He is on allergy meds. This year is apparently the worst allergy year ever! People who have never had allergies are having problems. This is probably making it worse. 

He does not enjoy this process, but he is very cooperative.  We hope they get better soon or at least don't get worse. 


  1. oh poor phod!!! we hope there is a way to make it easier for you... have you tried to clean the ears with vetericyn? it was the thing what helped for Phenny, he has always a whole potato field in his ears... no idea why... probably dirt magnets inside?

  2. Welcome home Lady! And about time too, if I might say it straight.
    But poor old Phod with his itchy ears. We do hope that whatever is triggering the allergies goes away soon.
    Toodle pip!

  3. Welcome home Lady....and B-cat thanks you for your kind wishes yesterday. He went nuts of the gourmet nuts Marlu sent him for F-day. Phod darlin' itchy anything is BAD. I have lots of contact allergies...currently sporting, very itchy, what looks like chigger bites. I feel for you handsome boy
    Hugs HiC

  4. Blerg. Ear cleaning is a tough gig, P. We hope the allergies clear up soon and for good! Stay brave, buddy.

    Love and licks,

  5. Hi hi hi! Ojo here! That sounds very yucky! We hope your ears get better!

  6. Sorry about sweet Phod's ears we hope the issue clears up soon and he will be all better. Hugs and nose kisses

  7. Itchies in general (in ears or otherwise) are never any fun. We hope your pawrents can provide some relief soon.
