It's a nice time of year so I'm headed to volunteer at the Botanic Garden outdoors soon - things like raking leaves need to be done and certainly provide the social distancing I am careful about. The knee limited what I could do last fall and spring, but now the gardens are open and my knee is in working order.

I think I've solved the itchy dog problem (I don't know if I've mentioned baths and a rinse in case soap was left on them) but I finally remembered that the biggest dog, a lab, got 3 Zyrtec a day (calculated by the vet) and that helped. So I've started the two itchy dogs on it and hope this helps because as much as they drive me nuts with the licking and scratching, it has to be driving them insane. Thank goodness Costco sells a generic in relatively inexpensive bulk.

Sometimes just remembering how you used to do something is a great discovery - I was working my way through the list of things I was going to need to try (I had already tried the extra rinse and switching food, but I remember now the vet said the dog was probably allergic to the grass in the back yard, so as long as the food is wheat free it won't make a difference). The food is an easy fix and I can go back to the regular stuff once the current kibble is used up.
