Do you know what flour and dog spit make????
Natsumi is still traumatized by her combination bath and impromptu hair clipping episode tonight. Doesn't she look pitiful all wet? It also takes her forever to dry off since she's got such thick hair. I gave her a bath over two hours ago and she's still wet1 She hates her baths - I even cuddle her up in the bed afterward but she just shakes and shakes and shakes. I think that's really common with a dog that didn't have a home and didn't have the experience of receiving baths. I'm not saying that dogs from loving homes enjoy baths, but there's this absolute terror that seems to come in dogs that are really unsure of the experience. It probably doesn't help that she can't see. My little Nachee was quite dramatic this evening. I added a new picture of her on Petfinder tonight as well as a different profile .... fingers crossed. This picture was taken by a group member for Mardi Gras and I love it - she said Natsumi reminded her of a muppet. I bet she's jealous she didn't get to sing with Cee Lo Green. ;)
I had to email the gentleman the other day that's interested in Leon and let him know that Leon has been acting quite puppyish lately since he'd be coming from Paducah, KY. Considering he's a single, older man I just knew Leon wouldn't last 2 days in his house and then we'd have to go through the ordeal of getting Leon back. Of course, I got an almost immediate email back ... thanks, but no thanks. :)
So tonight I changed Leon's profile on Petfinder - I'm hoping that'll do the trick to get his patootie adopted. I hadn't been able to update it and I've changed it to include his active lifestyle. Any runners or joggers out there? Here's a dog that might help you train for a marathon without wearing out. Please?? Really? Sure you don't know someone??? haha I don't know how much longer JTK, myself and our 50 dogs can handle the furry, canine tornado known as Leon. :)
