Furry Saturday

&nbsp &nbsp White Chilli

This is Snow. She may be small, fluffy and cute, but she’s a total 小辣椒 (si beh chia)! She belongs to my friend and is staying with me this weekend while the family goes on a vacation.

Joy and Rainbow went ballistic when Snow came. Felt like Christmas in June with all that boisterousness around the house in the last 2 days. Curious about the new addition, Joy and Rainbow were very enthusiastic about their new friend, but Snow was cold (no pun intended) and refused to let them get close. Can’t blame her too coz she’s in a new environment with 2 larger dogs eager to sniff her behind. Even I would be defensive.

So I’m staying this whole weekend with Snow in my room while Joy and Rainbow stand ‘guard’ at my door. I wonder how do I get them to socialise. Probably too short a time too so better just keep the small dog safe. And as it turns out, Snow is really fun to play with!

&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp Yay!!

The other ‘snow’ problem we had was Rainbow’s terrible fur shedding and my family was contemplating to give her away. But after considering the pain between having to clean up after her constantly and not having her with us, we chose the lesser of the two pains.

From kykydiary and Jeanne’s suggestion, we got Rainbow a fur brush and have been brushing her daily for the past few days. It’s working wonders! Thanks for the advice. So I guess there’s a merit in sharing our problems, we gain from the experience of others.

    Glad to be of help and glad that rainbow gets to stay! Remember though that JRTs will shed more profusely twice a year so you’ll have to be more tolerant and hardworking during those short periods.

      well, hopefully this decision is permanent :o) i think the twice a year rule doesn’t apply with rainbow! she sheds the same throughout. or rather, she sheds so much, we can’t tell the diff when she’s shedding even more. heh heh…
