Brady is a somewhat high maintenance kind of guy. He has terrible skin allergies that literally leave his sides and front feet bare due to him licking and pulling in an effort to make the itching stop. This condition is worse during spring and fall because grass and pollen are two of the biggest triggers.
Imagine having a dog who is allergic to grass.
I can tell you that Son has probably built a new wing at the vet's office due to all Brady's appointments and medications. Brady has even seen a doggy dermatologist several times for help. When a pet has medical issues, a pocketbook can be quickly depleted. I think Brady is a very lucky dog that his parents are so conscientious.
But I digress. Brady has another problem which is not very endearing.
He likes to mark his territory. All. Over. My. House.
I used to put down towels in his favorite spots which seemed to deter him. Then I realized my floors had virtually disappeared under terrycloth. Plus I had nothing to use after a shower.
Then I discovered doggy diapers. These are nifty little belly bands that fasten on with velcro. It seemed the perfect solution until I realized Brady doesn't have hips. Therefore, the diapers would slide right off him.
More research and I found another solution...doggy suspenders. Hey, they work. And I think it gives him some Fred Astaire flair, too.
So how do you like Brady's new look?
