Time for a bath

Slander and Allie have had a little bit of crusties on their skin I took them to work to see what the deal was. Skin scrapings, hair plucks, and tape preps showed no mites, no fleas, no bacteria. It's a stumper.

I got some benzoyl peroxide shampoo and I already gave Allie a bath today...I'm resting before I put Slander in the tub. Slander had gotten a Convenia antibiotic injection about 2 weeks ago, and that didn't do anything. I hope this shampoo works, because the next step is either a different antibiotic, or prednisone.

Magnolia is unaffected by this skin issue, thank goodness.

One of these is not like the other~

Having Allie around is never a dull moment, that is for sure! Not that Slander and Magnolia are boring...but they are NORMAL. Allie is a unique little Schnauzer. Take, for example, her resting habits.

She's always got to hang out above everyone else.

Then she looks down at her subjects with disdain.

Then I get the stink eye when I take her picture. "What? I'm relaxing!"

Allie is Back!

Last Thursday Allie returned from her year long be bred. Unfortunately, no puppies were produced, so she was spayed and her teeth were cleaned. She has blended right into the household again, and is the most vocal one. She follows me around wherever I go, and the best parts are her wagging nub of a tail, and the fact that she is the only Schnauzer that licks my face.

She accepts me brushing her teeth very well, and today she got a bath in the sink. Next week she will get professionally groomed, when the bank account is a little fuller.

I'm very glad to have her back.

Magnolia Reads A Magazine

Looks like Magnolia has been checking out the trashy magazines again.

She appears to be very concerned about that Kardashian breakup.

It must have been cold in the house yesterday, as the girls were snuggling on the couch closer than usual.  Slander likes to have her photo taken, but Magnolia was too interested in relaxing.

Blankets...Are Mine

It's starting to get cold at night, so I got out some extra blankets for the bed. Slander immediately had to do quality control to see if they were soft enough.

Slander's Birthday

Slander just turned 11 years old. As you can see, she is very happy about that fact.
