Down By The Seawall

Tzuri is 23 months old today.

Amazing how fast time trots!  I sure hope I figured our actuarial tables correctly in that we both reach the end of the road simultaneously.

Horrifying is the thought she might be farmed out to a less-than-optimal new owner if I go first.

Tzuri gets her sports confused, and likes to make up her own rules.

What, Me Worry?

Sticks and stones may break my bones,

But fleas and ticks will never hurt me.

We were doing serious battle with Florida fleas until just recently when we switched from that worthless OTC topical called ‘Frontline’ which is supposed to be a monthly application but we were dosing 3/month to no effect.

Now we use an internal poison, Nexgard. If that doesn’t work, I’ll switch to mustard gas and flame throwers.

We hate fleas!

Bad Hair Day

Tzuri – who is officially classified as a ‘long coat’ German Shepherd – shed a ton of hair when we left Northern California and stopped for a while in Tempe, Az.

Then she started growing it back again as soon as we got to Florida!

Note the uneven chunks of hair on her right flank.

No matter – she’s as playful as ever.

The Bath

I post this picture of my friend Sarah (recently deceased) giving Bleu a bath on the off-chance that I can convince my dog – who has NEVER had a bath – that it might be fun to actually lather up once in a while.

Sarah & Bleu

You watching this, Tzuri?

And Lordy does she need a-washin’ now & then, muddy paws and all!
