Hot days impede productivity. Makes Bowdu sprawl out on the hardwood floors and do a whole lotta nothin’.

Of course, “hot” here is… oh… a high of 83 degrees Fahrenheit.

Hey, I’m not complaining, just takin’ it easy.

On this day, the first day of summer, I thought it’d be worthwhile to step back and assess Bowdu’s dermal health.

Allergy feet - 2010

He had already been on Temaril-P for a couple months when these pictures were taken.

While I don’t expect his skin to be perfect this summer, whatever we’re doing seems to be keeping last year’s skinrot at bay. If nothing else, we’re at least months ahead of where we were last year. I’ve been babywiping his feet after every romp through grassy spots since March. And he’s had NO need for prescription allergy drugs! I have, however, been dosing him with Benadryl (no more than once a day for the past couple weeks).
