We had the first real warm sunny day recently, so I took that opportunity to bathe my doggie. He usually has that really yummy puppy smell, but he was getting a bit too aromatic 😅
My husband and I washed him good (with original Dawn dish detergent, which is gentle enough even for small kittens!) and towel-dried him. Then we went outside to sun.
But when we bathe him, he gets the “post-bath zoomies.” It usually works out well.
He takes off in the backyard, doing laps and shaking off the moisture 😆 It’s like bathing gives him a jolt of energy!
Only sometimes, he gets so happy it hurts 🤨
The first time it happened, we took him to the vet. The vet was very gentle and helpful, and even funny, and he did a full checkup. There was nothing wrong with Mr. Holyfield. He had only a minor sprain.
The vet gave us the equivalent of doggie aspirin and told us to let him rest.
Usually, the rule of thumb with animals is this: if they stop eating or drinking water, that’s when it’s serious.
Mr. Holyfield the Dog rested a few days, then he was back to being his usual happy self 🙂
But, today is an aspirin & rest type of day for us. Because he got too happy again, and again, he has a sore muscle.
No worries, though. He’s still eating, sucking up food like a vacuum cleaner, and begging for human food. Hahaha 🙂
Mr. Tyson Evander Holyfield is a miniature pinscher mutt from the Humane Society, and I firmly believe in adopt, don’t shop!
I also believe in know-your-breed before getting them. Soooo many pit bull mixes at the Humane Society (like, 95% of them!!!) because people don’t read up on the breed’s strength and needs 😢 A quick Google search before adoption does the trick 👍
That’s it for today! Be happy like my dog, but not so much it hurts!
안녕! Bye! Ciao!
