Snow Pics

Hot off the presses, some pics of Lily outside. She hates it, and I had to tamp down an area for her to go to the bathroom.





Pet Maintenance Question

Here is a stupid question. It has been almost two months since I bathed Lily (no dead stuff to roll in with all the snow), and I wanted to know if you have to wash your dog every couple of weeks. She does not smell at all (I sniffed her all over- she looked at me funny), and I brush her every day and her coat is not oily or dirty, so I don’t see why I would have to, but I just wanted to check.

If she doesn’t smell and has nothing on her coat, can I just skip bathing her? My gut instinct is that if dogs were meant to have baths regularly, nature would have figured out a way for them to bathe on their own, and I should just her natural oils, my brushing, and her self-grooming do the trick until it is clear that I need to bathe her.

Well, Fuckity Fuck Fuck

In a perfect cap to a craptacular week, Tbogg’s beloved Beckham has died.

I’m really sorry.
