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.
