Flakies & the Notorious V.E.T.

Hey everybody...here I am trying to make an escape while at the V.E.T. the other day...I've had lots of flakies on my beautiful black fur furs & being the diva that I am, I like to be well coiffed at all times...
I'm trying to relax & read a bit of Dog Fancy, but I don't like the sound of the wimpering doggies in the other room...not a very peaceful place while I'm trying to get my hair treated for flakies...

Verdict? A dumb-dumb bacterial infection that will be treated with a month long course of antibioticables & baths 2 times a week with a special shampoo...

WHAT? I don't know why those silly bacterias like to take refuge in my furs...my mom/secretary seems to think it has something to do with my love to basking in the grass & roaching & maybe getting little bug bites that I like to scratch...but I'll never tell...
For now, I'm only allowed to back on the carpet in the sun or on my new Coolibar doggie beds outdoors...
Today is my little cub DEXTER LABRADUDE'S FIRST BURPDAY! Everybody go wish him a happy happy day!

Love & Licks,
Randi

We have already wished Dexter a happy birthday. We hope you feel better after your baths and the flakies go away.

Oh, sorry you have to take Auntie Biotiks. But you would not want to be embarrassed with dandruffs, so I think it's for the best. Get better soon!

Randi! Thanks for the burbday wishes. I don't even know if I will get to bloggy today!!! It is so cold and there is ICE and everybody is all cranky.

I hope those twice weekly baths make you less itchy.

Kisses,
Your Little Cub

Randi, You need some snow. You can keep your fur furs beautiful all the time just by roaching in the snow. If you need a beauty trip up north and east, just let me know.
