My dog, Mollie, got an ugly sore spot on the top of one leg. She rubbed against the door frame and constantly licked and scratched the spot. The veterinarian said it was a "hot spot" and cleaned it up. He gave her some antibiotics. Mollie is better now, but I would like to know more about this and what can be done to keep it from happening again. I bet other dog owners would be interested.

MONEY MANNERS

posted: 05/17/2017 1:45 a.m. Discuss

DEAR JEANNE & LEONARD: My friend "Brittany" somehow never seems to have her wallet with her when we're out together. So whether it's lunch, a latte or a quick stop at a grocery, I have to pay for whatever she gets. What, if anything, should I do about the situation? Brittany's always appreciative and truly embarrassed that she's "done it again," and sometimes she even remembers to pay me back. Meanwhile, I'm torn between being amused by my friend's behavior and seriously irked. So you know, Brittany has money, she just never has any with her.

What can I do to make my short-haired cat shed less? I got a short-haired cat thinking that she wouldn't shed as much as a long-haired one, but I was wrong. I have hardwood floors so I sweep every day. I know this sounds extreme, but can I shave my cat? (Really, I'm only half-kidding.) Anyway, she's strictly an indoor pet. So what about shaving?

DEAR JEANNE & LEONARD: Because he knows that I know much more than he does on the subject, my brother recently asked me for financial advice. The thing is, I've given him advice before, and I know he'll fight me on everything I say, scarcely thank me for my help, and blame me for things over which I have no control (for example, a long wait for customer service at a mutual fund company, or even a bad day on Wall Street). Should I be a nice guy and help him, or should I sit this one out? What keeps me on the fence is that he could really use my advice.

Q My wife died six years ago when my children were very young. I raised them so far by myself, and I've been very lonely. I have been dating a beautiful woman for the last six months who is considerably younger than I. My kids love her and she has consented to marry me -- but she just told me she wants my kids to go away to school. She says that they are a reminder of my wife and she wants to start fresh and have children of our own. Is this a normal request? What's good ex-etiquette?
