This weekend we were with some friends and one of them had a terrible outbreak of hives. The worst part – she had no idea why they were there. Of course, all of us were asking her about everything she had eaten and come in contact with, and nobody could figure out anything. Continue reading…

Dogs to Help Track Allergens

By Heather Legg | 2 Comments »

The other night we were out and saw a guide dog in training. He was an adorable, young yellow lab, and the owner/trainer graciously let us pet him after we spoke to her about him. She thanked us for asking to pet before we did, but said how it was good for his training. As a dog lover, it always warms my heart to see guide or assist dogs whether in training or on the job.
