I know, self help should come first. But the dog is now 11, and these dogs normally dont last more than 15 yrs. Besides that, I couldnt bear to give them away.
I found out you can still have pets you are allergic to by taking steps with your home. Im trying to get one of those air purifiers that trap allergens and pet hair. Vacuuming more often, having the dog wear a t shirt for the dander, and so on. Its hard, but must do, and after everyone croaks, no more pets.
