Default Happy New Year update!

Hey everyone! We were quite busy over the holidays so I didn't get a chance to post much.

I don't know if you recall but my husband had lost his job a few weeks before Christmas so this holiday was a bit stressful for us. But I'm happy to report that he found a job and will be starting on Monday. Yay!!

Duke is doing well and growing! He broke out in what seemed to be hives yesterday and we're hoping it was just the new fabric softener that we got recently. We've rewashed all his clothes and blankets and hopefully that will resolve the skin issue.

Here are some pics of my crew from over the holidays

A shot of hubby and Duke. All our friends joke about how they look alike. And they kind of do! lol


Doing the exorcist stretch! lol


My girls with their new animal hoodies (they love them!)


Opening presents!!

What awesome photos. The 2nd picture makes my back hurt. I find it funny how our fur babies lay & appear comfy. LOL I must say I love the panda bear hoodie. That is awesome news about the job. I hope Duke's hives are gone soon & that they aren't still bothering him.

Thanks! Yes that second pic I call his exorcist pose. His head and upper body were facing the oppposite way from his lower body right before I took that pic. I don't know how he twists his body like that! lol

Hubby gave him a bath yesterday which seemed to aggravate the spots but this morning they are a faint shade of pink. So we're hoping they will go away! If they're not gone after the weekend we'll take him in to see the vet just to be sure!

I did notice yesterday that the bumps are raised which is indicative of hives but he's not scratching at them which is odd for hives. So maybe it's not hives but some other kind of skin irritation? I'm relatively sure it's not ringworm... but I was reading about scabies last night and that concerned me somewhat.

His bumps look a lot like these: Google Image Result for http://leicesterskinvet.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/Canine-Scabies-2.jpg

Are you able to get him into the vet to have it checked?? Better to be safe than sorry.
