I am beginning to suspect that Athena has an allergy to the dog. I hope it isn't so. She has had some respiratory complaints for a whole month now. This has never been the case before. She has a cough that usually only appears in the morning and now her eyes are tearing and she has the sneezes.
I really am hoping it is not what I think it is. This is one GREAT dog, and I am not a dog person. For me to say the dog is great means she is really great. I am puzzled at what these symptoms could be in her and why they are lasting so long. We have had the dog for 6 weeks and she has displayed the symptoms for 4 of them. Is it just a lasting cold? Possibly. Or am I just trying so very hard to ignore symptoms that could signify an allergy to her pooch. I already vacuum the house every other day. The dog does not go upstairs to where the bedrooms are. How can I tell if she is allergic short of taking her for testing. Sigh. What to do, what to do.
