Hi! I'm a Black Lab / Newf mix named Randi Sue, but you can call me Randi...I'm 9 years old & my burpday is 12-30-1999. I've lost 35 pounds over the last two & a half years & have kept it off! I now weigh in at a very sleek 85 pounds. My littermate brother, Dublin, passed over to Rainbow Bridge on March 29, 2007 & I'm still a bit lonely - so visit me when you can & keep me company! WOOF!
I spoke too soon yesterday....last night I was a bit restless & itchy, so I deceided to bite & lick a new hotspot into my rump...in a couple areas, actually. The biggest area is about 2 inches by 3 inches & boy, is it driving me crazy. Its driving my mom crazy too. Not a fun morning so far, cuz out came the diluted solution of hydrogen peroxide, the gentocin spray & the sissors (no worries, all procedures cleared by my vet). So now I have to get lathered up again & have a foamy bath with the Pyoben Shampoo & then maybe some Epi-Soothe & then get me dry completey using the hair blower...hate that thing. Oh...when you think it can't get any worse, she's threatened the cone-collar on me...but I'm hoping she'll look into some alternatives...cuz those things are embarassing... But its really not my fault....its kind of hot & sticky here & I'm shedding my thick (half) newfie fuzzy undercoat....& I'm just uncomfortable..... *sigh* .....I miss winter.
