Elections, Hot Spots and Anniversarys

Well this has been quite a busy week...After all of our campaigning around town we had to take a bit of a break..........

It was also PL1+2' anniversary(25 years!!!!!!!) PL2's best friend sent them these beautifull fall flowers.......and they are going out for dinner tonight(but not fancy..they decided they wanted to go to their favorite pizza place...This is why we love them....)Pay no attention to the vitamins on the table....

This is the card we sent them.......


Now I must tell you the following pictures are not for the faint hearted....this is kind of like when Gussie and Jackson showed us pictures of their surgeries. and Eric his hot spots..Archie was SOOO nervous about the elections he sort of developed some hot spots....JUST LIKE ERIC!!!! It is pretty bad and the 4 of us haven't slept the last few days because he has been up crying.....He had to go to the Vet today and get the spots shaved and get some stuff for them.......



This one on his neck is kind of swollen from all the itching.....

He even had to have the TOP of his head shaved!!!!!!!



And on his leg.....I will say that I kind of feel sorry for him.......Our Vet said that Archie is the sensitive one( well yuh.....I mean he FAINTS ALL THE TIME ) and stuff just bounces off of me............




So that is why we haven't posted for a bit.....We would like to also show you something...Wehad to keep it top secret before the election in case we had to make a fast get a way..) Sophie sent us these Canadian bandannas in case we were moving up there. She said then with these we would fit right in....Archie just told me to tell you that he is not going to model his because it would go right over his hot spot and anyway he is very drained from his experience.............

OK EH!!!!!!!!!! See...I sound Canadian!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Poor Archie to have those awful hot spots. They look very tender. But I'm am sure the election results will help him heal.

Congratulations to your people for 25 years! I hope they enjoyed their pizza (and brought some home for you to share).

Your friend,
Niamh

OH MY POOR ARCHIE!!! You were up at night CRYING??? Why in the world didn't you call my cell?? OH DEAR,,,Archie, what do you need...ice cream? An anti itch smoothie?? A kissie to make them all better??

Um...I'm sorta on a date this weekend...like with a CAT. I haven't mentioned this to anyone else...but in the interest of PEACE ON EARTH...AND between species...I thought I'd try a DWB's FIRST. I think I'm a first......anyway...Opus from Italy is a sweet boy...but Archie...you'll always have my heart!!! Plus, after my retribution er date with Mango, my schedule is free and we can do something AS SOON AS YOU FEEL BETTER!

Perhaps a trip somewhere cool...should we go skiing? I mean, I've never heard of a dog with cold spots...

Loving kissies, hugs and scritchies....

Pee Ess...we loved the flowers with the Geritol...er "vitamins"....great pic!

Gus said...

Eh, you betcha!

We feel so sorry for poor Archie, the one on his head looks like Aggie hit him with a two by four! And with a black spot almost on center, it certainly catches attention immediately.

We hope he feels better soon and you guys all get some decent sleep.

Happy anniversary to P1 and P2, I'm sure they couldn't have made it without you guys.

hi A&A, congratulations to your PLs on their 25th anniversary. that's tremendous!

Archie's hot spots look very painful. poor fellow. he is the sensitive type (like us, Bailey and Benson). we hope now that the election is over, that they can heal. we're sending him some pawitive poodle power to help him out.

that was very sweet of Sophie to send you bandanas. you do look very canadian when you are modeling it for us, Agatha. you would fit right in. but now you don't have to go, right?!

woofs.

Jake of Florida said...

Ooh those awful hot spots!!! The one thing we know is that shaved parts do grow back -- so Archie will look handsome one day soon again.

In the meantime, Happy Anniversary to PL1 and PL2!!!

Poor Archie! My mom says that a solution that is 3/4 witch hazel, 1/4 aloe vera gel and a few drops of lavender essential oil dabbed on the areas a few times a day will soothe the skin and aid in healing and hair regrowth. Just keep the solution away from any kitties or birdies.

Happy anniversary to your pizza feasting parents!

Amber-Mae said...

Oh yikes! Those hot spots look pretty bad. Chloe & Faith are now suffering from mite bites & their skin are kinda icky too. They have 24 days to take antibiotics. Oh poor girls. Luckily the mites did not invade me! Or maybe I shouldn't speak too soon. Please get cured soon & if you are scratching, STOP IT!!! It'll only make it worst. Hee!

William Tell said...

Archie, my buddy, I feel your pain. But just check out my blog and see how lovely the hair is when it grows back from a bald place like that. I oughta know (sigh).

Happy anniversary to your folks!

Happy Tails,
William Tell

Petey said...

Poor bald headed Archie! We need to save up the bits and pieces from our hairbrushes and make him a nice toupee until his hair grows back. And it doesn't have to all be terrier hair - he'd look awesome with a nice sweeping mullet of Golden Retriever hair...maybe Amber can contribute some.

Your pal,

Petey

Luna "The Scruffy Yacht Dog" said...

Well let me wish your parents a happy anniversary. I love the card although Archie needs to work on his spelling and pawmenship. Poor Archie I hope his hot spots heal quickly. Your scarves from Canada are very stylish.

Toffee said...

Oh no Archie! You poor thing! I had to skip right to the end because I, *gag*...*urp*...don't have the stomach for this...

Lenny said...

Happy anniversary and congratulations to the PLs!!! That is wonderful. You guys have much better paw-writing than I do. Well, maybe just Agatha. ;)

Your friend who is catching up on things, Lenny

P.S. Archie I'm sorry about those nasty hot spots! My hair is falling out a little bit. Too many baths, I think.
