We have some substantial improvement!!

She's finally into foster care -- on Clavamox (which has helped clear the staph infection a great deal).

I think we're dealing with more than demodex here (yep, usually you do). I think she's got a whale of a allergy to St. Augustine sod. I also suspect we've got a bacterial ear infection.

The foster mom emailed me today -- and she's stuffed up. This could be anything from allergies (she's AWFUL young to have allergies) to kennel cough. BUT given that, no way will we try to fly her here (we were going to fly TO Austin to pick her up and fly her back in the cabin).

Bracheocephalic dogs have their own issues with flying and I'm not risking putting her in mega pain if there IS a bad ear infection. I'm not sure the temporary vet would be able to examine the ears as fully as *I* think they need to be examined without insisting she be sedated, and I don't want to put her thru that either. Bad ears + congestion mean she's gotta go by car.

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO we're going to fly to Austin and rent a car and drive back. We just don't have the TIME to drive both ways -- there was the day when I could "drive straight thru" but those days are long gone for me tolerating sitting that long. It will take us 3 days to drive home so we'll have to do it over the July 4th weekend.

The UPSIDE of this (whoooooooo hoooooooooo) is that I'll get to meet Rita!!

Many of you folks don't know, but Rita's been around here for a LONG LONG time!! I've been on here about 10 years and Rita found my stuff online about 8-9 years ago when SHE had a pug puppy with demodex (Shiloh) and I told her about this really nice board called Canine Club with all these nice folks! She doesn't get to be on here much but it's gonna be really fun to meet her!!

So this is 'Lil LuLu Bear as of Sunday morning. You can see a real improvement. She looks like a DOG finally!! She's got a rough road ahead -- but she'll have love!!
