When I’ve talked to you about Ruby lately, it’s included lots of health issues. Well I think we’re on the upside of all of that. Yahoo! She seems a lot better and more like my normal happy dog. For that, I am thankful.
While she was sick, I had blog readers wondering about why she wasn’t always in pictures of my finished quilts as typically the last picture I show when I reveal a finished quilt is a picture of Ruby on the quilt.
Well it had gotten to be that Ruby didn’t really care if she was on the quilt. I couldn’t get her to “smile”. It wasn’t something she enjoyed anymore. Well that’s changed back to how it used to be. She loved being on the quilts and now quickly runs to pose on them.
The problem I’m having with her…the shedding. UGH. Being I run an in home childcare business from my home, the shedding is a little more serious than in might be in a regular home. I have kids crawling on the floor and climbing up on the couch. Parents don’t want their kids’ clothing covered in dog hair and neither do I. I complained about it on the blog and several people suggested a Furminator. Well I didn’t jump on the idea right away. I went to their website and the brushes were expensive. The next day I ended up on Amazon and yet, they were on Amazon at about half the price.
When ordering I had to figure out the size of my dog and hair length of my dog. They suggested this one for Ruby.
We did get quite a bit of hair. We’d have gotten a lot more if we hadn’t been brushing her every night for the previous four days. Over all, I think it’s a really good product especially now that it’s under $20 for the brush.
Thankfully Ruby has gotten so she doesn’t mind being brushed. That’s a blessing. At first every time I came near her with a brush, she peed. Ugh….We’ve progressed beyond that!! Yahoo. Sometime it’s the little things.
We’ll be back to the vet at some point to check out her thyroid levels but if how she’s acting is any indication of how she’s doing, she’s doing great!!
