and Im definitely allergic to him :(
After about 2 hours last night my eyes and nose started getting all itchy...waaah.
I'm going to call the Dr this afternoon. If its only me who is allergic and the kids are all fine, I'll see what meds I can go on to keep him.

He is such a sweet puppy....Im totally in love with him. He was such a scaredy cat last night but this morning he was really happy and playful. He slept 8 1/2 hours in his crate last night..woohoo! Only one pee accident so far and he's doing great for never being on a leash before

Im going to be so upset if we can't keep him. Keep your fingers crossed that we can make it work

ETA: I gave him a bath last night too and he was very well behaved

I'm assuming this is a poodle? You may just have to have someone else bathe and groom him. That can release ALOT of dander. Also wash your hands after petting him and don't touch your face especially eyes and nose until after your hands have been washed. I'm on Singulair, I LOVE it!! Originally went on it to help control my asthma, but it makes me much less sensitive when going to other peoples houses who have animals. As long as I wash my hands after every pet, LOL! I also change my clothes as soon as possible when I leave. If given enough time you will probably become less sensitive to him, especially if you have not had any other pets for a long time. In the meantime, sometimes a children's dose of benedryl helps me and doesn't knock me out.

I agree I wouldn't medicate your kids. You may want to ask about singulair, I used to be on Zyrtec also and it did nothing for my allergies to animals. I have absolutely no side effects from Singulair either, I call it my miracle drug! LOL!!
