With the ‘elephant’ out of the room, it was time to get down to business and bring Bubba over for another discreet visit to get a hair cut. On Sunday when it got dark I went over to get him, and he stayed until it started to get dark on Monday night. It is so terrible that the HOA won’t allow dogs, even for a visit. Skruffy is the only dog that lives here, and to our knowledge, the only dog that has ever lived here. Thank goodness for ADA laws that force entities to allow service dogs. Again, if you are new to the blog, just look for the search bar on the right side of the website and do a search on ‘service dog’.
When Bubba arrives, he has to check the place out. We ‘have’ to put his food dish on the carpet as you can see above – left. Then he just kicks out on the chair and makes himself comfortable.
With all that black hair, it is hard to know if he is asleep or awake…but as you can see here, he has one eye on me. It wasn’t long before he was snoring away…this boy can really snore!
After awhile Bubba got up to get some water…and he lost his place. Skruffy just “HAS” so show her spoiled attitude by taking over Bubba’s favorite spot. But it is not long before they are both asleep, as you can see in the first picture where Skruffy is in the chair and Bubba on the couch.
Unlike Skruffy, Bubba just does not like his hair cut…but he does tolerate it. Above you can see the nicely trimmed bubba. What he does like is the coolness after the haircut and the shower to get cleaned up.
The sore he had under his chin is totally gone. I trimmed his chin real close, and that will help keep the sore from coming back. It took 2 1/2 hours to cut him, clean him, and dry him…and he was ready to get out of here! One last thing that I did was give him and Skruffy their flea and heartworm medication. It is a liquid that you put under and along the collar…when we gave him oral medications he would have seizures. Well, shortly after I got home, Uncle Mike called and said that Bubba had a slight seizure. It lasted less than a minute, and was the biggest seizure he has had in a few years now. Probably should give to him a few days before a haircut and bath, or give him a smaller dose…something we will talk to the vet about when we take him for his annual visit.
