I know this is a dog blog but our little bunnyboy Iden has died 😦
We went to let him out for his usual run around the garden, and he was dead. We saw him 24 hours before and he was fine…but then he was gone. No injuries, no acting odd, nothing. Poor baby, rest in peace bunbun ❤
The good news – Zoey hasn’t limped at all today. This morning however, as soon as my partner took Kasper out for his walk, she went crazy!
For half an hour she flung her toys into the air, then sprinted to pounce on them. She leapt up and down off the furniture, dived from the bed to Kasper’s footstool and back again. We wrestled and played one of her favourite games, where I hide under the duvet and Zoey has to ferret her way in!
We both love this game; it has me in peals of laughter, especially when Zoey explodes under with frantic kisses and scrabbly claws. I get covered in scratches, but it’s worth it 🙂
Anyway, after about 30 minutes of exuberant play I calmed her down by putting her antler halfway into her Kong (this really bugs her and she just HAS to get it out!). Even after the frantic play and the running she didn’t limp at all yaaaaay!
Now to Kasper. I found a brush that actually works for him – it’s an old hairbrush!
I’ve tried numerous pet brushes over the years, and none have been effective at getting the hair off him and leaving him looking well groomed. When I found an old hairbrush the other day I thought I’d give it a try…it was awesome!
I brushed him three times in one day and every time I got a handful of hair off him 😀
Kasper loves being brushed. When we adopted him at 9 months he was very scared, and would bat the brush away and chew it. We did a lot of counter conditioning and, when Kasper was two years old, my dad was round our house and picked up the dog brush; Kasper ran and sat at his feet, swooshing his tail expectantly!!
After his thorough grooming he looks sooo good though; all sleek and shiny! ❤
