Again, I want to encourage any of you who do not own an exercise pen to get one! Mine have been so valuable during the snows and rains. I always have one set up in the garage, with newspapers covering the floor. This offers an alternative potty spot when the snow is piled up outside, the frigid wind is blowing, or the rain is pouring down and neither you nor your Lhasa wants to venture outside. Have you ever had one, eager to go out, that puts on the brakes when you open the door and she sees the weather? You can read "You're crazy, lady, if you think I'm going out in THAT!" in her body language. Ex-pen to the rescue!

I know that "this too shall pass." I hope it happens soon! This is a strident trio!
The only other tidbit of information regarding the allergy question has been a recommendation to use Dinovite. I looked at the website and was interested in the grain-free treats they offer for sale. Anyway, I hope the suggestions that people have made for the last three postings will help any of you who are dealing with a Lhasa with allergies. Thanks to all who responded to my request for information.

And Loretta sent pictures of Griffin II (Rafe's litter brother) proudly wearing his new sweater. She wrote, "I have never had a dog that would wear a sweater nor even want one near him. Griffin, on the other hand, did not want to go outside because of the cold...so we bought him a sweater and he loves it! ? The red patch on the back of the sweater is a pocket ....you know....for his credit cards and identification etc."
I'm always grateful for photos and updates on my "kids." Judy, Whisper's owner emailed, "Whisper loves me so much. I am slowly working with her to be less kissy and more content to snuggle. Her inclination is lick, lick, lick my face to show how much she loves me... I often call her "Kissy!" She has such a precious soul, and such a petite and beautiful face. Sometimes when I glance at her, I have to do a double take because she is so beautiful and her eyes look right into my soul. She definitely is where she belongs and is extremely happy." Whisper is a litter sister to Maggie and Raven.
Life is better when you have a Lhasa to love you.
