Ready For Her Close Up

In case you think we don't take pictures of our other pets, you're only half right. We try. The cats, however, consider the flash an instrument of the devil. So they run every time they see the camera.

Doodles has a different problem. I think she avoids looking at the camera because she's embarrassed.

She has this recurring fungus, kind of like athlete's foot is in people. But for her, it's whole body. It makes her reek and itch. It used to be so bad, she licked her fur into huge mats. In some places, she licked her fur right off. We've got medicine for when it gets bad (hard on her liver, so we can't use it often), and shampoo for in between times.

She gets the buzz cut treatment at the groomers. It looks so funky, the groomers will only do it if we agree not to tell anyone where we get her clipped.

They obviously didn't think to ask me not to post it on the internet.

We love her. We just try not to stand down wind.

Poor puppy! This post really gave me a good giggle. I have a Standard Schnauzer...we get him completely shaved down. He looks like a giant rat in my opinion...he doesn't seem to care though and in fact he seems fairly proud!

This is about 3 weeks after her intial cut, so it's grown out quite a bit already. With her giant head, bulgy eyes and bowed legs for some reason right after a cut she reminds me most of a baby bird.

Creppy and cute all at the same time.
