A have a dog. A weimaraner. Probably the sweetest dog in existence. She absolutely loves everybody.
The sad thing is that she has so many health problems. It's like she's allergic to the world and it's a constant effort to keep her at least comfortable, which is extremely difficult. Always has ear problems cause her ears are floppy and dirt gets trapped easy, which makes things much worse. She shakes her head around around so much that her flapping hears have made a bit of a bald spot on her head.
She had such a bad reaction to something a while ago that she lost all the fur on her belly and elbows, and it still hasn't grown back in those spots. She's also bald an constantly itchy in her nether regions cause she's allergic to grass and, well, squatting to pee...
I do my best for her but I feel so bad cause honestly she's so hypersensitive my best will never be enough.
I also used to have a cat but he died a couple of years ago just shy of 18 years of age, and I had him since he was a kitten. Got along great with dogs, loved being vaccumed with the brush attachment, loved having his belly rubbed, slept with me every night... I really miss him
