Handsome boy

Recommended Posts

@Alyssa, he ran through an extremely muddy pond (more mud than water in fact)!  He is a bit of a mud magnet, loves splashing about and lying down in muddy puddles 9_9

@GingerFish he is a rescue dog.  He is actually from Spain, it is believed that he was living on the streets for at least a few months, then he was picked up by the pound and then the rescue that I got him from took him out and into a foster home before rehoming him to me.  I'll have had him 3 years in August.  He is absolutely bonkers, such a fun-loving, mad little thing, he's only 6kg and so affectionate, he loves his cuddles :D

This is him in the pound and at his foster home before he had his first haircut:

He's spoilt rotten now :)  

He also has a few minor health issues, lots of alleriges & food intolerances, and last December he spent a few nights at the vets as he was very poorly with pancreatitis.  We have to be so careful with what we feed him... he'd never have survived on the streets.

Ha, I was just going to make a post called this exact name!

I took the clippers to my dog yesterday - too poor to get him groomed!

Number 8 mostly all over, with a six on his legs, as the 8 was doing nothing. He looks great!

He is a black and white ?Springer Spaniel? Maybe an English (springer) Spaniel - I can't recall - he was a stray....but it is weird - after clipping him he has lots of black spots he did not before - guess the black (most definitely) grows thicker, but the white (also most definitely) seems to grow longer?

He looks fine to my untrained eye, but Max was shivering after a walk yesterday, so a child gave him a blanket!?

We had enough hair left over for a new dog, I think, but it is summer, and he looks much better (and he had knots behind his ears which were impossible to brush out).

Like the fish - I will need to keep up the maintenance?

My family had a few dogs when I was at school, but as I recall, and my dad commented too, none of them liked to lie still for a brushing. Max will take a brushing for as long as the brusher is willing - on the steel prongs side! The only way we could get him to lie still for the clippers, was having another do a brushing at the same time!

That side is quite sharp, but he seems to love it, or even the softer nylon side. But he is not the smartest dog I suspect?20170605_162244.thumb.jpg.482d6b90490f8fa281a41bc5fbadc203.jpg
