Hoshi’s bath day

I gave Hoshi a bath last night because his feet and face were dirty from our walks. I tried my best to trim him but he wasn’t cooperative last night. Trimmed his butt, face and paws. His hair is so soft and fluffy after a bath. I found one flea on him but he’s not due for Frontline again until the end of the month.

Hoshi snorting today

It’s day 6 following Hoshi’s bordetella vaccine. I googled the side effects which includes cough and nasal discharge 3-10 days following vaccination. He’s snorting once in a while. I hope it clears up by Thursday. He’s never been vaccinated for this before.

Bath night!

I gave Hoshi a bath and trim last night for his first day at a boarding service. I want to make a good impression. No fleas. He didn’t let me finish his trim. Both of us were too tired.

This will be his first week at a boarding service. I hope they treat him right. If everything goes well, Hoshi will be going every evening while I’m at work.

2nd generation Aibo released in Japan

Owning a dog costs about $1,300 a year. That doesn’t account for any medical emergencies, special diets or medications. If you want to own a dog but can’t afford one or don’t have time to care for one, consider the new Sony aibo. The aibo costs around $1,800 dollars and behaves like a dog. It’s a perfect gift for children.
