I Feel Like a Puppy Again

Xena: Hi, hi, hi! Guess what? Wait, I’ll tell you. Mommy read about how bad bennies are for people…

Lucy: It’s benadryl, Xena. Bennies are something else. We don’t get those.

Xena: Well, we don’t get the dryl stuff anymore, either. That’s what I’m here to tell everyone about. So anyhow, as I was saying, Mommy thought, “Hmm, if they are that bad for people, then they can’t be good for dogs, either.” She said you could read about it here if you want to. But keep on reading my story, too. Mommy thought I had changed because I had turned two years old. I was mostly laying around on the love seat and didn’t want to play. The only things I was still enthusiastic about were food and Freestyle. Friday morning, after reading that article, Mommy only gave me a Xertec for my allergies, and no bennies.

Lucy: Xena, I told you, it’s not bennies. And Xertec is spelled Zyrtec.

Xena: No, like I told you before, it’s XERTEC like my name XENA,

Sorry folks. Sometime Lucy thinks she knows more than me. So later in the day when Mommy called to let Daddy know she was finally on her way home from work, he told her that he didn’t know what caused this big change, but that I had been running all over the house with my stuffies.

Do you want to wake up and play with me, Ell?

I had started playing with Lucy again, too. I ran outside with my bully horn and even came back to get another toy to play with in the yard. Mommy knew why, and had conflicting emotions. She was very sad that she had been suppressing my joy, and very happy that I was still the same puppy she knew, and hadn’t really changed.

Xena Schnauzer Warrior Princess is back!

So instead of those bad old bennies – Lucy, don’t even say it – I am getting a bath about every other day *pthhh* with BioHex Shampoo with Chlorhexidine and Miconazole. It has microsilver and ceramide in it. (Mommy helped me with those words.) Now I am hardly itching at all and I’m wide awake and ready to rumble! ( heard that last part on TV when the folks were gone.) Anyone want to play?

I’m my Mommy’s happy puppy again.

XOXOXOX Xena on Xertec (only)

  2. I used to gets bennies too for my allergies! Ma took me off of them, and I too got lots more energy! This was years ago, when I was a wee lass, butts I was on them for a while. I was able to gets off of them when a new vettie I saw, noticed that my skin itchies were a skin infection! I went on antibiotics for months to get rid of it. It sometimes comes back, butts the antibiotics are better than the bennies fursure!
    Thanks so much gurls for the POTP!!! You gurls are the bestest!!!

    1. When I was allergy tested some fungal infection (or something) showed up too. So this new shampoo gets that too and is probably why it is working. Hope you dont have any itchiness now.

  5. Woot! Woot! I also get bathed in that shampoo…but only once a week(cause it dries out my skin). Mama only gives me bennies at night when I am having really bad allergy episodes.

    So happy to hear you are so happy and carefree!

  6. I am so happy you’re back to your silly self.. Has Mom tried adding a little Eucalyptus oil and some coconut oil to your shampoo, You may be able to go longer between baths, and smell good too.

  7. Xena, I’m glad you are feeling like yourself again! Tell your mom not to feel bad, we all know she only wants what’s best for you and Lucy. Sometime it just takes awhile to figure out what that is. Giving her a hug and you and Lucy cuddles.
