    No, and longers you are a very naughty boy:angry:
    You are well aware the mention of these ******* raises the blood pressure of our forumers and gives rise to much vitriol.

    How come it's taken 18 years to become a news item?

    No, I'm still allergic to her, just takes a while to get desensitised. If I or she have a holiday from each other I get the eczema and asthma again. It would be worse if I was wearing her :thumbsup:.

    Get a terrier breed next time. My niece suffers from asthma and has a Schnauzer who causes her no grief. She is also fine with my dog, who is an Irish Terrier.

    Son no.1 has this problem. Everyone else wants a dog but it's finding one he doesn't react to. Black Labradors seem to be the current favourite whereas Golden ones set him off. I've been resisting a dog for ages but actually I quite fancy one...but sshhhh....don't tell the kids :thumbsup:

    It's ok, it's been a bit of a problem all my life* but I have grown out of it to some extent.
    Un-neutered bitches were the worst. Poodles or Yorkies would be best but not on my list.

    *growing up in a family that works with animals for living was certainly itchy.

    Crackle - I had a large course of de-sensitising injections as a youngster and they made life bearable, as not being around animals wasn't an option. It could work for your son.

    Don't get a common dog, get an IT and help save an endangered breed. They're a nice size, don't moult, very intelligent, as happy with a 1 mile walk as a 12 mile one and adore kids. Track down a local breeder and ask if you can have a look with your lad. Everyone who sees my dog comes and says 'hello, I like your dog. What is he?' You don't get that with a boring old Lab!

    Lucky they didn't want something in a 'houndstooth' pattern I suppose...
