HI HO SKID MARK!

This butt thing with Zoe is not working. After coming home from the groomer there she was, skidding on her butt around the carpet in my office.

The wife says the groomer also does the butt thing with every dog they shampoo and cut. I'm thinking too much of a butt thing is not good. Zoe's exhaust pipe is most likely irritated from too many cooks in the kitchen.

We have dog butt anointment just for this irritated area. There's about every Tom, Dick and Harry dog anointment in our medicine chest. You name it, our dogs have had it and there's a cure in the house for it.

If my tail starts wagging or if I start barking you'll know that in the dead of the night I grabbed a doggy thing instead of aspirin.

My mutt used to do that. He loved doing the skid on our carpet. I would need to clean our carpets professionally every two weeks or so.

I feel bad for the pooch. I hope everything is OK.

Everything seems to be going okay with the dog. Thanks for asking, Fox.

I'll take her, I'll take her...


oooohhh, pick me!

Rachel: If it were up to me, you'd have a new dog in your house. That said, it would be tough to part with Zoey. Even though she's neurotic as hell, she's still a nice little campanion.

Put a very VERY small dab of Preparation H on her 'backdoor' (with gloves), gently rub it in. Distract her for a few minutes and be sure she doesn't lick it off. If you're worried about the medicine in P-H, then use Vasoline...If she's been doing the "Boot Scooting Boogy" for some time, her hind end is raw (whose wouldn't be?) Hope you don't have Berber carpeting!!! I use it on Sparkey :))8thggfpeckerwoodusa @ 4:38p.m. 9-13-07

8th Grade GF: In my world that would be called foreplay . . . but not with a dog!!!!

Blessed said...

You know Bob I have to say this is the first post of this nature that I have read here in blogland.
I have to say I laughed since I have seen a few dogs to this.
Poor puppy dog she must be getting some relief by doing this! What does the vet say?

Bob said...

Blessed: The vet taught the wife how to treat Zoe. It takes some KY Jelly, a gloved hand and a gentle touch to help Zoe out of these situations. For now she seems to be doing fine.

Like you, I never knew until just lately why dogs would scoot along the floor on their fannies. Just like their human counterparts, ya gotta scratch what itches!

Sometimes I'm glad I don't have a dog...

Bob said...

Evalinn: Yes. I often think sticking to just having a cat would be a good thing . . . unless she coughs up a hairball on the bed!

Max said...

So dad, you gonna go down to the groomer and say something like, "look, I need you to stay out of my dog's ass". lol

Bob said...

Max: hahahha! Good one. As is now when the wife does the deed on Zoe's behind I put on "I'm A Backdoor Man!" by the Doors. She never appreciates my sense of humor.
