The Tiny Heart: Allergies

Allergies





Cardigan-Gap (similar), Tank-Bitten (similar), Jeans-H&M Kids (similar), Flats-Target (similar), Necklace-Gift from hubby

Every March, Jinx starts itching his fur, chews on his paws, and gets watery eyes. Yup, my dog suffers from seasonal allergies. Poor thing starts moping around the house and sleeps all day (this is not much different from a normal day, except for the extra moping). He starts to look like one of those sad dogs from the ASPCA commercials with Sarah McLachlan music playing in the background.

Over the weekend, my throat started getting scratchy and I've been sneezing. I think it might be allergies. Luckily, we already had Benadryl laying around to treat Jinx. Yep, that's right, I'm sharing medicine with my dog. If I start barking, I'll stop taking it. (totally kidding, Jinx is taking Benadryl meant for people).

  2. Aww poor Jinx! I hope you and he feel better soon. I never had allergies until I moved to school; after four and a half years here, the trees are really starting to get to me already this spring. That cardigan is so cute!
