Bath Day

Marshall has had an itchy face for a long time. Sometimes he also licks some other random area for a few weeks, e.g. paw, leg… But since he has no coords, when he tries to scratch with a back leg he misses and when he tries with a front paw he claws himself very viciously. Early this year, the vet said to bath him weekly. They offered to do it for the first three weeks, because MARSHALL HATES BATHS

Unislips & Crumpets – Chloë the Basset

Somewhere around six thirty this morning, a Younger Human came downstairs (not really downstairs, just down the stairs, the house has two different ground-levels with stairs in the middle). Marshall jumped on her and she started scratching him. Then an Older Human called Marshall onto the bed. And so the weekend begins.

Back at the Park – Chloë the Basset

Moz and I were finally taken back to the Wild today. We have been imprisoned in nice warm soft beds ever since the Disappearance of the Humans, followed by the Eternal Presence of Humans. Those were (and still are) some of the best months of my life: spending cold mornings curled up on a beanbag/someone’s bed/the old mattress we were given, especially when the beanbag was in front of the heater, with the Givers of Food and Belly Rubs always around. But it is still amazing to get out to the streets now, and now we can go into the Wild too!

SPEEDY BASSET

Chloë the basset hound has really benefited from playing with Marshall the Fast. sprinting around the garden trying to keep up with him has made her the fittest and fastest basset I have ever known. If you feel her very carefully you can feel her ribs! This does not mean we need to feed her more, it is a good thing and a sign of health. We sometimes walk her and Marshall around the block and I always time Chloë. She used to take about 22 minutes and her record was 19 minutes, but recently she crushed that time with an amazing-for-a-basset 11:53!🙄

By the way, this should really be called Weekly Snippet, but Daily Snippet sounds better.

‘THE CANINER’ found Chloë first. Well done!

Bassets & Books

These are two things that I love. However, they do not mix well.

My basset hound seems to love books too! She devours them – but not in the same way that I do!
