Allergies in Dogs: They Aren’t Only Allergic to Baths

  We all know that person that is allergic to almost everything. This person can hardly step outside his front door before he’s attacked by all kinds of contaminants that make him sneeze or make his eyes water.

Pollen Like Me

  You are sitting in your house with the windows open, and your screen door is open to let fresh air inside your home. The weather outside is amazing. The sun is shining, and there’s a light breeze blowing through your home. You can hear the neighbors across the street talking in their living room, because they too have their windows open. It’s so pleasant. Now, let’s imagine that I’m pollen. I climb in through your window without you knowing. I bounce around your house touching everything I can.
