This past weekend our son went to another event so we got to take care of Buffy - the little dog his friend got at the pound a few years ago.
This is the first dog my husband or I have had around. This is the third time she has stayed with us. When he left the first time I had our son leave the harness on as I was afraid Buffy would never let me touch her - but by the second day she was sitting next to me or on my lap so everything was fine.
She is allergic to something though so always scratching herself. Poor baby. Last time we got some shampoo and gave her a bath several times and that seemed to help for a while at least. Now the vet has her on a prescription shampoo that we had to lather and then leave the soap on for ten minutes. My husband came up with the idea to wrap her in a towel and sit with her for that time, then to return to rinse her off. Much better than having her stand in the sink all that time!
So by the time our son came to get her she had had three shampoos, 8 walks and lots of time on my lap. It was a fun time, but I hope the shampoo and meds will do the trick for her so she can enjoy herself more.
She also likes going in between the folds of the sleeping bag - in the photo I exposed her. She opened her eyes wider asking me why I was doing that.
I haven't made the official bed for her yet, but she is happy with the sleeping bag for now!
