Pacifiers for Dogs

How to get a few minutes to yourself...
With their little mouths and paws busy dismantling rawhide chews I finally got to take care of some things I had been putting off. My dad is so smart for suggesting I buy a bag of them! Another good way to get some free time - send one off to surgery. Katy got "fixed" this week and is now recovering at home. Who would have thought that a day and a half at the vet would make one pup so smelly? I thought such a rank aroma would take at least a week in a kennel to set in, having experienced that whenever Max got boarded for vacations, but this was surprising. Her scent turned from doggy to downright vile. With super hot weather coming for this weekend bringing with it an airtight AC house, I have got to do something to get the stench under control. Thankfully the vet's office says it is ok to give her a bath as long as her sutures are carefully dried right away. Good news! Hopefully that's the last bath we'll have to give her for a long time. Newfies need regular grooming but are said to be able to go fer years without a bath as long as their coat is maintained.

A quick way to clean up the doggie smell without a full blown bath is to use bath wipes. They work great!

Sharper Image has a groovy Ionic brush for $40 that gives them a bath without water...saw it this weekend at the mall while hiding from the 115 degree weather...just before the compressor exploded on my "new" Jeep, rendering it impossible to drive... :(
