I've wanted a dog for all my life, but my folks were anti dog. I've never had allergies to dogs before, only cats. Moved out at last May 2010 and got my first puppy in November 2010. Anyway up till January i was fine, then all of a sudden i start sneezing my head off and blowing my own weight in snot (Sorry to be graphic but feel i have to, to be able to show how bad things are!) and i've also felt a bit wheezy. Im attempting to take an antihistimine daily but doesn't seem to last long. Now with Lennie being my pride and joy and having a decent hoover with a hepa filter on it and hoovering every second day. what else can i do to eliminate symptoms and to put you in the picture me and Lennie won't be parting!. But i need to stop feeling like i've got man flu!:crying: He also sleeps in my room as i don't trust the little tyrant on his own in my sittingroom yet and the kitchens too wee for him. I've bought him his own bed and encouraged him to use it rather than sneak up on mine in the middle of the night, but with him being a big guy he can when im asleep and i've no idea till early the next day!. If i try putting him out the bedroom he either spends the next few hours howling or barking cos he hears people outside. :nono: My vet nurse says he's going to shed 365 days a year and i've bought a furminator which should be on it's way soon. Anyway any suggestions would be great!. Thanks.
