How's the Water in There?
Clean, Cooperative Tanner
As the boys nuzzled my legs, I continued to clean Chiffon's tank, purify water for him and go about the business of putting him in his clean house. Tanner and Oliver looked on with a new attitude, one that reflected a deepening understanding that I was caring for Chiffon in much the same way that I care for them.
Our regular grooming sessions include the usual brushing, teeth cleaning, checking of paw pads and ears, and so on. I'm not sure who enjoys these sessions more, me or them--probably a toss up. What I do know is that grooming them definitely draws us closer.
They seem to know that trimming the fur from between their pads is useful and important, even as I pry them apart to check for ticks. They don't fight it or resist in any way. Once, when we did have a tick infestation following a camping trip to the woods, the dogs (we had 3 at that time) all endured twice daily debugging, along with lots of peppermint oil baths until we eradicated our home, yard and pets of these pesky, dangerous parasites.
If you--like me--prefer the natural method to pest control, you may be interested in the method by which we became tick free. I'm on a roll to rid our home of pesticides and
toxins. Yep; that's why we choose organic food as well.
Our new alliance with Natural Balance has the boys transitioning to the Natural Balance Organic diet, and so far all is terrific.
