Daph is on a regimen now of Children’s Benadryl, pain medication, mite medication, and a topical spray with antibiotic. O dearest pup spends her time sitting in the hall, staring into space. I have to pick her up and carry her everywhere. We feed her by hand because she shows no interest in food otherwise. She wears her striped sweater not for style, but so she won’t scratch her wounds. She’ll be okay, though. She comes from a high-kill shelter in Santa Barbara, was picked up as a stray by Animal Control. She’s tough, my girl. Just like her mama.
