I'll start with my trouble maker...T-Bone. He's been a good boy and getting along with Sarge and Stella...a few minor tiffs, but that is OK by me! Unfortunately, his skin has been causing him some problems. It started with us noticing his belly was pink and looked dry which I treated with Desitin. It helped but not enough. So, after 2 visits to the vet, 2 different courses of treatment, medicated baths, lots of pills, an ice cream treat and lots of kisses...it appears we are making progress. He's finishing his course of an antibiotic and we've added an antihistamine to his daily meds to help whatever is causing his reaction. Hopefully, it won't be permanent, just seasonal. Here's a pic of this angel at the vet. He has started to not like that place. I bribe him with treats just to get him in the front door now...and last week, I had to pick him up (all 53 lbs of him) and carry him to the exam room.

Sarge is just the usual butterball. His rolls are getting extra dirty...so he gets to have them wiped out even more than normal. Don't know why they seem extra wet :( But, we are keeping an eye on them and keeping them clean. He has started humping Stella these past few weeks. It's rather funny to watch, but of course we correct him and tell him not to hump his sister!

|To say that she LOVES her dad is an understatement...borderline OBSESSED!|
|She likes to sneak back our our bedroom during the day to nap on T-Bone's bed!|
We've added coconut oil to their food! I've read that is good for skin conditions among others benefits. They sure seem to love it, but I don't know anything they don't like!
Overall, we have 3 happy and healthy pups!
