We’ve all seen them…those dogs with calluses on their elbows from laying on hard surfaces. You’ve probably even thought to yourself why don’t the pet parents buy the poor dog a comfy, cushioned bed? They may very well have! I have a pillow bed downstairs, an orthopedic bed upstairs, and I’m allowed on all of the cushy furniture. Yet sometimes I still choose to lay on the hard floor. Don’t ask me why.
Recently mommy noticed I was starting to develop hardened skin on my front elbows. She tried encouraging me to lay on cushioned surfaces, but I wasn’t always cooperative. So mommy ran to the store and came back with a pretty green can. Turns out it was not a treat, but rather Bag Balm for my elbows. Mommy’s been rubbing it on my elbows and pads for a few days now, and things are getting softer. I usually hate having anything slathered on my pads, but this doesn’t bother me. It was around $10 so didn’t break the bank either and will last a long time. The best part is there’s no awful smell, and it actually stays on me well. Bag Balm gets the Suki Seal of Approval….though I still would have preferred a treat.
Ok, so mommy’s been slacking off and not posting as often lately. I guess she kinda has good reasons: busy with work, searching for additional part-time employment, and looking at endless rentals for a new home for us. Specifically, mommy is considering my needs…such a good mommy. New place must have a patio area with grass for us to chill in the nice weather, safe areas to walk me, nice neighborhood so I’m safe when mommy’s working, and enough space to play hide and seek on rainy days (ok, that’s my requirement not mommy’s). Well…looks like mommy did well…place not only has patio but also has spacious open parks and a lake around it…PAWSOME! I can run! I’m so excited! Way to go mommy! I knew I picked you for a reason!
Yay! Mommy’s back from a too long vacation and ready to blog again!
Don’t ever leave me again!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Apparently mommy has even more to say than me! She wrote a couple articles for other pawsome websites as a guest blogger. Now I’m not thrilled with her taking more time away from cuddling me, but she is the keeper of the food so I’ll play along…check out her articles below. (shameless of mommy using me to plug her articles).
