I’m still at the lake, but guess what? I have a visitor. Hailey is a Doodle who’s the same age as me but way more into mischief. She’s spending the weekend and thinks she owns the place. Look what she’s doing to me.
Now I don’t’ mind this rough play, but all the humans get excited when we play indoors. We keep getting in trouble and sent outside.
Hailey may be the trouble maker, but I’m the smarter one. When Kristina puts out my food, I eat it before Hailey has a chance to get near it.
Hailey likes to munch all day and leaves her bowl full of food – right on the ground – right in front of me. So I grab every opportunity and eat her food. She doesn’t care. She knows her humans will put out more.
Kristina scolds me for eating Hailey’s food.
“What?” I bark and look all innocent.
“You know you have allergies.”
“Allergies Schmallergies,” I bark. “This food is tasty.”
I do behave and leave the food dish. But ah ha! I found Hailey’s food bad. And when no one is looking . . .
And then I remember. I’m allergic to wheat. My feet itch. My ears itch. And now I’m not so happy about eating Hailey’s food.
Kristina gives me a benadryl, and I start to feel better. Then I need ear drops. Gooey stuff dribbling in my ear canal is not a feeling I cherish, but I put up with it.
Why can’t I remember to only eat my dog food?
Do you have allergies? and what do you take for them?

Be careful of your waistlinbe, Farley. I too would scarf up any leftover food. I am fortunate enough not to have allergies.
That means you can eat whatever you want. Soooo lucky. I was hoping with all the exercise I got with Hailey the extra food wouldn’t hurt. I will check my waistline in the mirror later – when no one is looking!
Poor Farley. Luckily Chloe hasn’t had and allergy problems
Chloe is lucky. But keep telling Kristina I’m not. Then she’ll spoil me more!
Ha! You ate well loved Farley!
