Trixie stretches her hind limbs
June 30, 2020 9:50pm CST
My big brother bathed 6 of our dogs this morning, a task that I do when we are only 3 at home. My sister cannot sit low on a stool that is 1 foot high, so I did the grooming of the dogs while I advised her to rest in her room because she was starting again to complain of body aches when bathing the dogs should be done. (She never did assist me before when I bathed and groomed the dogs; son was in school). Trixie, our local mutt and the only brown dog we have, is partially blind now. Looking at her eyes,, her pupils have opacity (cataract). We feed her inside the house, in the kitchen, because she cannot locate her food except maybe the scent from her food. Trixie was the 4th dog bathed by my brother. As usual, she does her daily, or hourly stretching--- she stretches her back limbs as far as they could reach (of course one at a time), and it is a joy for me to watch her do that. What other actions do your dogs do? Do they exercise their limbs too?

My dogs (well 2 out of 3) insist that I play ball with them and love to bring me their ball but hardly ever want to release it so I can throw it! my youngest my 8 month old Black German Shepherd is now starting to annoy me by bringing me his ball in the house and palcing it on my pillow when I am trying to go to sleep. he does it over and over and I throw it to get him out of my face. I tell him I am not playing with him. But He thinks I am. so he brings it back.. lol
