For such a pretty little girl, LuLu sure does get stinky behind the ears sometimes. Not in her ears, but behind them. I had LuLu’s ears checked at her last vet visit and she was found to be clean and free of infection. So I did a little research and learned that it’s most likely pond bacteria thriving in the warm, damp environment of her thick fur after a swim and a nap. The ear area is particularly susceptible and a dog with a heavy double coat like a Golden Retriever can even develop a fungal infection if left too damp for too long. Well, we can’t have that, can we?
So after a recent swim LuLu got a shampoo and a blow dry. I’ve never blow dried a dog before and wasn’t sure how she’d tolerate it, but she was very cooperative. As you can see, Rich did the blow drying while I took the pictures. “I’m ready for my close up Mr. DeMille. . .”
Mmm, she smells good! Happy Saturday!
