Why Tutuday? Because this week, I’ve been working on Sissy’s blog. It’s not perfect, but it’s up and running. Don’t feel obligated to visit or make Don’t Mess with my Tutu a regular read; while the girls will make appearances for my own entertainment, the purpose of the blog is to record the details of our journey.
To bring everyone up to speed, Sissy is in the process of being diagnosed with some rather significant food allergies. I use significant instead of serious, because the old medic in me can’t make peace with the lack of anaphylatic signs and symptoms. Mugsy had seasonal, environmental allergies and presented in a fashion I recognized; he’d wheeze, sneeze, have red, runny eyes, runny nose, etc.
Food allergies are still very new to me, but we’re learning every day. I’d figured out on my own that the girl couldn’t eat corn meal or chicken MEAL (chicken meat didn’t seem to bother her), but the new to us vet is saying beef and venison are also quite likely allergens. Beef is in EVERYTHING, including the heartworm preventative we were using. Sigh.
On Dogs N More, I noted that Ally introduced me to allergy blood testing for pets. We’re going to run that past new vet, and basically, if she isn’t dead-set against it (with valid reasons I can embrace), we’ll be giving that a whirl as soon as possible too.
So, consider yourself invited. Proceed with caution though, because Sissy’s main symptom is … not polite conversation. I’ll note and link here when I do update that blog, for a while anyway. Eventually, y’all will decide whether you care to read about that or not, and again, no pressure…
That’s the back. Darling presentation of a great idea, no? And I’m just sure the doggy featured is a Jack Russell, so how appropriate!
Happy little friday to you. I’ve been knitting and knitting, but still no FO to show for it. I should definitely have at least one next week, if not one and some handspun.
