The reason why there hasn't been any photos of me lately is because I have those dreaded itchy-scratchies, and thus the dreaded e-collar is back!! We aren't too sure what the 'trigger' is, but it seems 'seasonal' and comes and goes by itself, so rather than taking me to the vet and feeding me with steriods, the humans decided to bathe me with medicated shampoo and adopt the 'wait and see' approach. They have also eliminated chicken from my diet.

I totally dislike the e-collar because it gets in the way and keeps knocking into things. It's hard for me to hide under any furniture now without a few knocks and bumps.

I am NOT a happy pup...

can u tell yr mum to try to use calendula & yarrow tea rinse? or oatmeal water to shower for u. It helps to soothe skin and reduce itchiness a little. I might have some at home to spare. u want?

Huskee you look very regal with your Elizabethan collar!!! We are sorry you have the itches too that must be very uncomfortable.

I MOL at your mom sniffy your feet but then Mom told me she read somewhere that doggy feet smelled a little like popcorn? If that is true we say sniff on Mom!!!

Hey Huskee!

Issit cuz of chicken or what ? Or are shih tzus just allergic to chicken?
Cuz i've always been scratching like this and small red bumps appear like rashes.
It doesn't seem to go away .
The vet didn't say much either! Mommy have tried taking chicken away from my diet but i still scratch! :(

I know it sux wearing tht e-collar on! Just bear with it !

Oh yeah we understand....After you have tried the chicken if you are still itchy how about grains? That is a MAJOR itchy thing..ask Archie..Love A+A

Martha and Bailey said...

Oh you poor thing, we just hate those collars!!!!
We do so hope you stop having the itchies soon.
Tell your mom that making collages is easy peasy.
All she has to do is download Picasa and that lets you make collages very easily which you can post direct to your blog.
Lots of dog bloggers have asked and are now making them so we look forward to seeing yours.
It is a fun thing to do when you have lots of pics and like our mum trying to sneak in some scenery without doggies!!! We have told her this is not allowed.
Get better soon

Ooops! My friend Huskee, I had to look at you again, I thought you just had your neutering done!
Tell your mom that you're not allergic to chicken. You're allergic to bath, to fur trim only.
Hope she buys it, hehe!
(Oh Hershey and Chow Chow make a nice pair! I'd to see more of their play date pics)
Love ya lots!

Oh poor you, Huskee. Hope the itch goes away soon. You might want to try aloe vera gel, it's soothing.

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

WE hope you get that awful collar off soon! Maybe you should try some salmon for your itchies?

DoDo and MoMo said...
