Go away

Cooper has been doing well lately; his allergies are improving and now that we're having a bit cooler weather, he seems to be in a better mood.
I guess the change in weather and the fact that all the things that Cooper's allergic to are dying is contributing to the fact that Cooper seems to have more energy. He hasn't played fetch or tug of war for awhile because he was too busy being miserable and scratching himself. Lately he will run over to his toy box and grab his frog or Wubba and entice me to play with him. It's really nice to see him with more energy.
As for everything else, I think he's pretty happy. He's been sleeping back on the bed with me and has taken to sleeping right under my hand so I am petting him all night; or at least he thinks he's being petted. I'm just glad to know that my little Choo Choo is happier with fall coming. :)

California's burning

Who knew that the wildfires in California can wreak havoc all the way to Colorado? Lately it has been smoggy and the skies have been opaque in Colorado. All the extra smog, ash, whatever in the air is making Cooper's allergies near unbearable for the little guy. No matter what I do, he still tries to scratch himself in vain.
His right eye is almost swollen shut, his muzzle is red and raw, and his poor wee paws are swollen and red. Poor Choo Choo :( Nothing I can do offers any kind of relief. Even when he sleeps, he wakes up frustrated scratching himself and making terrible moaning noises. Even I am suffering from all the extra pollutants in the air; my eyes are just really dry and itchy and I don't even want to know how bad it must be for Cooper.
All in all, as I'm expecting another wildfire in California next year, I just hope that the entire fucking state burns down so we don't have to deal with it next year.
