Sitka Has A Boo Boo
On Sunday, Mom found a boo boo on my hip. It is called a hot spot. Mom knew what to do. She sent my human brother, Wil for the clippers. She shaved and cleaned the spot. She then applied neosporin and desitan ointment to the broken skin. The neosporin has antibiotics in it and the desitan keeps the skin cool and makes my boo boo feel better. I really like to chew on these spots, but Mom and Dad are quick to tell me, "NO BITE" and I stop.
It seems these days are a bit challenging. I have been raised in a loving home and given strict training. I have received quality medical care and the very best of everything, yet my doggie health has been a challenge for my parents.
I miss therapy in the hospital when I am unable to go, but I am thankful I have two furry brothers who fill in the gap. Nanuq will be going to Our Lady Of Hope (Nursing Care Facility) on Friday morning to visit the residents. My parents and I have a passion for hurting people. My youngest human brother, Wil also has a heart for dog therapy. He often helps Mom and Dad with us.
