Horses, Molly and wildlife...

The new folk have built a paddock in the field behind us and now have two horses residing in there through the day.
One is called Elle, no idea what the other one is called.  Notice they are wearing their "sunglasses" we call them that, but I am guessing it's to keep the flies from their eyes?
This is Molly's view of the horses.  She barks like a crazy dog when Heather is riding the horses, no idea why?
Here is another of Molly's friend's.
Now this friend of Molly's looks as though it has been in a fight.
That particular friend is the one that Molly tries to catch through the family room window; she tends to forget that there is glass there!!!!  Silly doggy!

Molly is faring okay I guess.  Her skin looks icky in places where the hair has dropped out.  She looks as though she has eczema.  I keep bathing her, which is a joy for all concerned!!!  She is looking pregnant, but that's the steroids she's on.  She has had a couple of accidents in the house recently, which is very unusual as she is a very clean dog, so not too sure what's going on there.  Twice we were sitting right there in the same room when she peed???

Overall though she is a delight and is just getting older.  She will be around 8 years of age in August.  We think her eye sight is getting weaker; oh and she has selective hearing, she should be a man, don't you think!!!!!!!  As I know my dh has selective hearing when it comes to me talking to him!!!!

We were going to get another dog, but as yet we haven't got one.  Not 100% sure we want to up scuttle Molly's routine.

Have you ever tried the cream I had suggested for Molly from the drugstore? very low cost and effective. Might be worth a try on one of her spots? Let me know.

Molly has lots of friends to keep her out of trouble! ;) Have you ever tried rubbing coconut oil on Molly's eczema... I've read about other who have used it for dogs with great results!

Oh isn't is great having such peaceful animals grazing so close. Molly I bet is enjoying her new neighbours as much as her
Sorry to hear she is having so much trouble with her allergies. Her pills will be causing her piddles as well as her stomach!! It is a hard balancing act as the pills are so desperatly needed. Not easy!!
Thank heavens for cooler days..great isn't it!!!

So glad you're back! :) Hope Molly is feeling a bit better soon. Sounds like some real ups and downs with getting her taken care of.

What sort of new dog would you get, Gill, do you think?

Moll has lots of friends yo entertain her. Hope you figure out why she's had a couple of accidents.

Welcome back. Thanks for letting me know.
I fancied having a go at Wordpress but I couldn't fathom it out. Did you more or less master it?
My dog had peeing problems when he started to age. It used to worry him. Vet said it was normal in older dogs, Maxie was 9 then.

I'm glad you've rejoined the blogging world! Those are fly nets the horses are wearing and our first dog Micha used to bark at horses too, it was quite the thing when she came along for my riding lessons!

Molly is lucky to have you...don't you wish you could just snap your fingers and her be well?
