Earlier that day, we had had the windows open. Despite both of our spring allergies, it was painfully hot on Thursday. We had a choice to make: Overheat now or pay the price for antigen exposure later.
So, we opened the windows and waited for the inevitable allergic response. It didn't help that Remi hadn't seen The Lawyer in two weeks and took every opportunity to gleefully jump all over him. Normally, this would be fine, but normally, his coat isn't full of pollen from these:
I'll admit that the trees in the city look spectacular right now. When I got back from Florida last week, this is what the balcony at my apartment looked like:
Kind of like a coral snake that's beautiful to look at, but will KILL YOU if you get too close.
We're medicating heavily in these parts and trying to limit our time outdoors. Remi, on the other hand, cannot get enough of his outside time.
Here he is making friends with a little pug that lives next door. The pug couldn't get to him to say hi, so he ran the entire length of the fence until he got to the part where he could poke his head through to sniff. Is this not the cutest picture ever?
(Please note the fallen blossoms, aka SATAN'S SPAWN, on the ground. Our little puppy is getting full body wipe downs after walks, until the blossoms are gone.)
