Remember Your Beloved Pet
My Dog Is Allergic To Me

bpcookie posted:
I noticed that my dog had been sneezing quite a bit and I just thought she had allergies. My husband jokingly said "she must be allergic to you because she only sneezes when your around". I went to pet her last night and as my hand got close to her, she sneezed. So I did it a few times and she sneezed each time. Thats when it hit me. She was allergic to me, she was allergic to my perfume. The perfume that I put on my wrist. Poor little darling. So I switched perfumes. (that perfume was very expensive too.) lol. Hopefully the perfume Im using now wont bother her.
