After her bravura performance yesterday, Small Dog is in the doghouse today.

The reason?

We treated her yesterday afternoon with Advocate.  It's a spot-on broad spectrum combination treatment, effective against fleas, flea larvae, roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, heartworms and Sarcoptic mange, ear and Demodex mites.

You would think, wouldn't you, that she would be grateful for this care and concern for her health and wellbeing but no.  

She wasn't.

She expressed her displeasure by going straight up the garden and rolling in 'fockspoo'

Normally this would result in an immediate trip to the shower room and a liberal dousing in her special shampoo until the offending stench has been removed.  However, washing her so soon after the (expensive!) Advocate application would render it ineffective so apart from a brisk rubdown with a wet wipe we will have to live with it for another 24 hours.

If we can bear it that long.

Needless to say, she has been looking immensely pleased with herself, basking in one of her favourite scents......  Essence de Renard.

Sniggering Dog

OMG I can't live with that smell. Tomato Ketchup is good for getting that stench out of the fur, rub it in leave it on for as long as you can then wash it off. Dirty Pooch. x

There was only a tiny bit on the back of her neck..... right where we'd just put the Advocate!

Have modified it with the aid of wet wipes but I still keep getting a whiff of it. She's going in the shower shortly.... that'll wipe the smirk off her face.

Ewwww, don't envy you that one! Now I know why I went for Chinchillas as pets! :)

She's highly delighted with her new fragrance.
Makes a change from Canal No. 5 ;)
