I was about to ask how snow doggo was doing, thanks for the update! Hopefully he'll mend soon if you can keep him calm enough. Which I know can be tricky.Wee doggo was doing really well Saturday running around the park. But he must have overdone it because he's relapsed today to being sore, stiff, & little painful although not as bad as last Thursday. Sigh
This strikes me as so funny, I can just picture this. Toby has fits too after getting a bath, but mostly he just runs and rolls around on the floor, presumably to get the fresh smell off and get the dirt right back on.My 3 leg dog..Roubaix( she goes by Ruby) also has struggles w injection sites. She will yip and yipe if you touch her. She does some funny things because of the missing leg ,she only lays on one side because she can't get up all that good when she uses her stump.
She randomly decided when her dog bed needs to be replaced. I had a local sail maker make a cushion cover for a 3in thick piece of foam that is the floor of her dog house.
I buy carpet remnants and because of the low cost it gives me lots of cost effective flexibility. I cut 2 or 3, 28x34 carpets..when they get dirty or she rips one up I can toss it. If the carpet survives her constant destruction I hit it w the hose and soap and she always has a dry clean place to rest or sleep. This week after a bath she went full shark attack,she shredded the carpet,ripped open the heavy canvass beyond repair and mutilated the foam into little chunks mostly tangerine or baseball size. She is unpredictable has only done this @4-5 times in @5 years.
Our relationship doesn't involve lots of training or reprimand or punishment.
She was named for coming from a rough road.
Dogs, you gotta love 'em.
