As many of you know Betty has always been quite an itchy dog and has undergone various rounds of allergy testing and is currently taking an autoimmune drug to try to stop her scratching ( not with much success).
Enviromental surroundings ( carpets / soft furnishings etc) can often be the culprit in causing allergies so I really wanted to try her somewhere without carpets etc and in a different area of the country ( I live next to a pine forrest) to see if it would make any difference for her.
Sarah ( Sezra) from this forum has VERY kindly offered to take Betty as her house is geared up for allergies as she suffers herself badly from them.
Betty will be going on Sunday and after taking advise may be with Sarah for up to 4 weeks:eek: I will really miss my baby but feel it is the right thing to do and I take comfort in the fact that she will be very well looked after by Sarah and her family...I just hope Betty behaves her self and does not get up to any of her antics!!
So a massive thanks to Sarah - it shows you how kind some of our lovely members are..and hope not to be reading any 'naughty Betty' posts on here!!

Colin we are very honoured to be looking after Betty! :D Infact we are very excited but also appreciate that you will miss each other terribly!

We have no carpets, fabric sofas or even curtains at the moment (just had our windows done :) ) so it will give us an opportunity to see if soft furnishings are contributing to Betty's allergies. It would be great if we noticed a difference and I am keeping everything crossed but at worse it will mean another potential allergen can be ruled out and your carpets can be saved! ;)

It will also be interesting to see how Daisy is with a play mate! :)

Look forward to seeing you both on Sunday and I promise we will all give her lots of love! :D

Ah Colin I hope you'll be ok Betty free for 4 weeks, but a great thing to do to try to get to the bottom of it. Betty will have a lovely holiday with Sarah and Daisy. What a lovely act of cockapoo camaraderie Sarah xx

What a great community we are part of!

Maybe we should all give Colin our 'poos for a day at a time to help him cope with Betty being away!!!

Fingers crossed that some of the itchy issues can be identified during this time.

Oh Colin I feel for you, I know how much you LOVE Betty and will miss her!! Betty on the otherhand will have a whale of a time and you know Sarah will do everything she can to make it more bearable for you ( I sense some Betty to Colin phone calls going on :))

Lets hope it crosses somethings off the list for you and doesn't end up meaning you have to move!!!!;)

Thanks everyone - getting quite emotional reading your posts ( soppy old sod that I am!!).As Sarah says, even if our experiment does not establish the
cause it will at the very least help eliminate certain things. I just hope Sarah realises what she has let herself in for:eek::D..
We will be meeting at the Asheridge walk mid way through so will be able to get a Betty fix then - I hope some of you can make it too!!

Oh wow 4 weeks apart :eek: but it'll be worth it if it can eliminate some if not all of Betty's allergies, fingers and paws crossed! Sarah had better stock up on shampoo as we know how much Betty likes her mud facials - lol :D

I know you will miss Betty but 4 weeks will fly and Betty is one lucky Poo to be spending this time with Sarah, Daisy and family - trying to think of how I can pretend to have allergies so I can go with her ;) x

hmmm - would love to loan him my cockapoo but he has got his eyes on Treacle and worried I might not see her again!

Seriously Colin, I do hope that you get Betty sorted and find out the reason for her allergies - Wonderful thing to offer your help, Sarah x

Yes, Treacle would definitely be in danger of going mysteriously missing;)
