Wet Behind the Dog Ears

So fresh and so clean, clean.

Looking lovely!

One thing that will be important for Georgia’s forever family to know, is that she has some allergies and issues with sensitive skin. These are under control now, but when she is nervous and/or in a new environment, the itchies seem to creep right in. We are able to manage these with a special diet (NutraMax), and weekly baths. Yes, I said weekly baths. 3 times per month, these baths are done with a Selsun Blue shampoo, and once per month, we use a special medicated shampoo from the vet. The good news, is that these baths also serve as her flea treatment… no creepy crawlies to be found on this lady!

The even better news?! Georgia is a rock star in the bath tub. Okay, no, she is not belting out ballads like Joan Jett & Pat Benatar. However, Georgia is an angel during bath time. She sits patiently, lounging in the warm water, and soaking up all the lovin’ that she can. I was able to ask her to sit and stay, and then I left the bathroom (door open!) to go get my camera. She didn’t even shake off until she had a towel covering her! Post-bath, our bathroom essentially looked as if no dog had been there at all! (Until it was time for Tonka & Gaige baths… ugh! Black hair everywhere.) After she was all dried off, she did a few zoomies through the house, and took a nap. What a sweetie pie! Now she is extra clean and shiny and smelly-good.

In case you don’t believe us when we tell you how great Georgia is with kitties, here is a video of our cat tormenting her… and of course, Georgia takes it all in stride!

We are excited to announce that we will have our very first guest post on Monday! Tune in then ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a great weekend everyone!
