Hi Patty, I'm sorry that you are feeling horrible. Yes, I agree that the allergies are probably going to keep you from getting out of that flare and it can't be good for you. I absolutely love animals too (especially dogs) but I agree that your health has to be your top priority right now. I know, easier said than done. Maybe ask the rescue group if a current foster home could take on the dog. It's hard though especially when one or both of you get attached to each other. The good thing is that its one dog that you have to worry about
and not a house full. That would be tough! I'm keeping you in my thoughts.
