The days seem to get longer, especially when you have 2 pit bulls vying for  your attention.  I don't know if Boych does it for attention or not, but I do know he requires a lot of up close and personal work.

He is still taking mud baths:

and he is not using his pool anymore:

He liberally intersperses the spas with manure packs, delightfully rolling in the neighbors horse apples.  He is persistent in looking for the not so fresh carcass that is left by the coyotes.  He has the biggest smile on his face when he returns from that adventure.

Today I came across a means of grooming him that I have used in other circumstances.   He came up and was nudging me.  He wanted to be petted.  I was in the process of doing dishes and had on rubber gloves....The yellow everyday cleaning kind.  I relented figuring I could wash off the hair that I knew would Velcro to the surface.  How did I know this?  Well it is my quick cure for getting cat fur off the chairs.

When I petted him that is exactly what happened.  When I begin using a scrubbing motion more hair began rising to the surface.   Voila!  Better than a brush.  I took him out on the porch and gave him a head to foot rub down.  The hair was flying and he was loving every moment, even when I hit the tickle spot.

I don't know if it would be an advisable treatment for a long haired dog but it sure works with my plush cut babies. I highly recommend it.

Have a Pittie nice day!
