Allergy Mischief

Hello Friends.

Let's get right to it shall we?  Yesterday I told you that my MOM had developed an allergy and I gave you some clues as to what she seems to be allergic to.  Here was one of your clues:

So what is my MOM allergic to?  Lets take a closer look.

No, it's not my paw and it's not me.  It's grass.  Lovely green, soft, beautiful mischievous grass.  That's what's making her so miserable.  

I don't get it.  I stick my snooter in grass all the time and I am fine.  Well, other than it tickles my nose sometimes.

"MOM what are we going to do?  Just look at this beautiful grass.  Will we get rid of all our grass?  Will we?  That would be very sad.  I love our grass."

  "And I love running in grasses on our adventures."

"I love to race up grassy hills and stand in the grass and take in all the beauty."

"Oh and all that wonderful grass that grows along the river and around and under sticks.  I sure am going to miss going out in the grass.  But if it means you would feel better, then I would gladly give it up."
"Goosie we will not be digging up our lawn and we certainly will NOT give up our adventures in God's glorious creation together."
"But nothing.  It's all good.  We will find the right solution and medicines and life will go on uninterrupted, with lots and lots of green grass and adventures."
"Really, Really.  Now lets go outside and roll in the grass."
"Wooo Wooo Hooo!  But first I have one thing to do."

 Hey Friends isn't that great.  I get to keep my grass and adventures.  I am so so happy.  
Now if ya come back tomorrow you will find out why I am wearing this funny hat.  


  1. We know why you are wearing that hat but will not spoil it for everyone else. Tell your mom that my mom got a few allergies when she got older but then they got better.

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  2. OH Goose, you just keep leading us on. Like, we just fine out your human is allergic to grass and the next thing you do is put something on your head and ask us to guess what it is about.

    Oh my mind is spinning. It is too late to think about it so I'll wait until tomorrow. Thanks again for taking care of stuff while I was gone today.


  3. Oh Goose we are so happy that your mom isn't allergic to you. Being allergic to grass isn't so good, but being allergic to you would be the worst. That sure is a funny hat. We can't wait to find out what that is all about.

    Millie & Walter

  4. Hopefully now your mom can get some medicine and be better. So we will see you tomorrow and find out about that gooofie hat

  5. Looks like you're going beekeeping! We can't wait to find out. Hope those nasty allergies are under control soon. Our Mommy understands. Our part of OK is horrible right now! **sniff, sniff** XOXOXO

  6. I hope you find something that works

    Stop on by for a visit

  7. Please let us know what ends up working for your mom.

  8. Beekeeping? Allergies? I'm thinking it's getting a bit TOO exciting over your way!

  9. Poor mum. We hope she finds the right meds so she can enjoy the grass with you Goose. What a bummer. Big hugs to mum. LOL we will be back tomorrow to see what is that hat about. Have a marvelous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  10. Thank goodness your mom isn't allergic to you...that would've been catastrophic...or is that dogastrophic?

    Phew - annoying but easily manageable in the end.... should I mention the possibility of bee allergy... (No YAM that would be pessimistic and unkind). I just hope mom is going to rug up in all the coveralls and a hat like yours Goose!! (Only reason I said that is coz have had to treat three of my colleagues here for stings this week itself... and one went into anaphylaxis, so for Heaven's sake, please take care.)

    Here's to a sneeze-free week! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty

  12. Hehehehe...GUESS WHO?????? Yep, it be da Puddles. Nows dis is a very intriguin' post cuz I has had four allergic reactions in a row dis week...I thinks it da grass too. No seriously I really do. Maybe your MOM and I could has a Benadryl makes me hyper...hehehehe.

    Dude, I missed you and your MOM tons and tons.


  13. Mom was talking to a lovely senior gentleman the other day and he told her to buy honey that is harvested locally. It seems that bees that collect nectar from local plant flowers including grasses put antallergins into their honey which helps peeps with their allergies. Mom doesn't have allergies but dad does and he has been having toast with honey on and honey lemon drinks...he says it is helping! It has to be honey collected locally though.

  14. Looks like you are gonna go do something with bees! Well, we wish your Momma luck with the grass allergy. We have had the sniffles around here too lately. Hopefully it will die down soon. Have a great Monday Goose.

  15. i came here first to find out what mom is allergic to.. so happy it was not my guess that was right, sorry mom has developed this new allergy, maybe when the new grass gets old it will get better...

  16. We just knew your Mom wouldn't give us grass (Oh, that just sounds SO wrong!)

    We will keep our paws (and fingers) crossed that she can find the right combo of med's to keep the sneezles and wheezles at bay. (My Mommy now lives on Claritan since she doesn't get allergy shots anymore.)

    We're looking forward to your next adventure Goose. With that silly hat we know it's gonna be a good one :)

  17. Oh we were worried for a minute that it was you Goose. But like the grass, we knew your Mom would never get rid of you!

  18. Allergies are so frustrating. Mama is allergic to dust. If she cleans it she gets sinus problems if she doesn't clean it she has sinus problems. Very confusing.

  19. Oh no, Goose! I know how much you all love to be outside and I know you spend a lot of time in the grass while cutting it. What has the doctor ordered? Allegra? That seems to help with our family and the pollen down here. Give your mom a snuggle for us and hope the drs. get the meds figured out in a jiffy!

  20. Pheeew it's the grass. Fortunately not you. I asked or mayor yesterday for an entry permit for you and I planned to evacuate my staff from the bedroom to make room for you. I hope you mom will find the right medecine and maybe her allergy is temorary and only for special grass.
    Are you a beekeeper tomorrow? Or is it a bag for the grass.... can't wait to hear about... but if you ask me it looks very stylish :o)

  21. OMD, I don't know what I'd do if I couldn't play in grass! I hope your momma finds the right medicine soon. That's a pretty pawesome hat, by the way. Are you taking up beekeeping?

  22. Hi Goose, I have had severe allergies over the years and even got shots for almost 18 yrs. Grass was one thing that bothered me too. Now I don't get the shots or take prescription medicine-just otc allergy pills. I so remember how awful I felt when my allergies acted up.
    So glad your mom figured it out. Praying that she gets some medicine that will help.
    Hugs to you both.
    Noreen & Hunter

  23. We just KNEW it wasn't YOU Goose.. BUTT OH NO... not GRASS... that stuffs is EVERYWHERE... We are so very much sorry that your mom is allergic to Grass.. OR ANYTHINGY Else fur that matter.
    YES... I think Puddles is Right let's throw a HOOOOOGE Benedryl Pawty...
    Can't wait to hear about that hat tomorrow.

  24. Thank Cod it wasn't you Goose..Poor Mom hope she can find something to make it better..Oh I haven't a clue what you are up to next Goose, Bee'z?? xx00xx

    Mollie and Alfie

  25. Oh no! A grass allergy. Dachshund Daddy's mom has grass and shrub and plant allergies, so she wears gloves in the garden and outside all the time.

    Your human has such an awesome attitude. We love it!

    And now we need to know about that hat.

    Keep on wagging; you're so beautiful, Goose!

  26. Barharhar, Goose, you and Mom really crack us up, Dig up the Grass, heeheehee, hop they get Mom taking care of!

    The Mad Scots

  27. We are sorry to hear that your mom is allergic to grass. We hope she finds the right medicine soon. As we are indoor cats, we can only imagine how you would miss the grass if you had to give it up. It does look like a fun floor to walk on....

    Have a great day.

    hugs, Bugsy and Knuckles

  28. That is not fun for your Mom at all. We hope she can find a med that works for her. Now about that hat - is it part of Mom's cure?

  29. I hope your Mom feels better soon!

  30. Oh Goose, wishing your mom well and a good med soon that will help. That is such a challenge as you both love the grass and nature. Hugs to feeling better SOON!!

  31. Poor mommy. We wish her well

  32. Have you tried allergy shots? I'm actually allergic to hay (and I've got horses) and I get some serious relief with them.


  33. I have heard that some dogs are allergic to grass, not that would be the WORST! Our grass looks dead as it is starting to show it's self in small patches. But mama says it will green up once all the snow is gone and it dries out a little. Can't wait to get my grassy yard back...such a mess right now...we call it Break-up season.
    Does that hat have a mosquito net on it?

  34. Goose I am waiting impatiently with baited breath to find out why you are wearing that lovely hat!

    My dad is allergic oak and pine pollen and guess what the nickname for Raleigh is the City of Oaks. MOL!!! He pops Zyrtec this time of year.
    Hugs madi your BFFF

  35. You have me stumped wiff the hat!!!! Are you going to the Kentucky Derby this weekend...maybe that wouldn't be so good cuz the Kentucky Blue Grass might tickle your mom's nose!!

    I will be back tomorrow to see why you are wearing the hat!!

  36. Oh no, that would be awful to be allergic to the grass. :(
    But glad you get to keep your grass adventures.
    Starr says hubba hubba to you in the hat. :)

  37. It is grasses! Well better than Gooses anyway. I hope your mom can get some very good medicines that will make those naughty allergies go away! I have some allergies too and I know it is no fun at all =P

  38. Oh, Goose! You made me giggle with that picture of you in the HAT! You look so cute.
    My mom takes something called Zyrtek because she's allergic to whatever blows through Kansas at this time of the year.

  39. Our Mom has been doing a whole lotta that ahhh-chooooooooooooing thing too...........

  40. Goose, whatever you have to do to get out and roll in the grass is worth it. I hope your Mommy feels better.

    Loveys Sasha

  41. I'm glad your mom figured out what it was, but it seems odd that she would be allergic to something all of the sudden.

    Nubbin wiggles,

  42. i'm so glad your MOM isn't allergic to you! that would be a dogastrophe! my mom has allergies to the great outdoors too but that does not deter her from taking me outside. hopefully your MOM will find just the right meds help her stay sneeze free.
    wags, bailey

  43. So glad it isn't you. Poor Mom. Hope she finds something to help with the grass. Lee and Phod

  44. You will find the right meds... Hope it eases up soon!

  45. Your MOM tricked us all! We thought it was you. I'm so glad that it's not you - but I hope that your mom feels better soon.

    Did you get a sunburn? Is that why You're wearing that 87 million mm wide hat?
