Crazy, right?! She is a mix between a great pyrenees and a sheepdog, so her hair is curly and very thick. I try to keep up with brushing her and do my best to comb out any mats, but at some point it is just too much to manage. Thankfully, we have a great local veterinarian who takes really good care of her each year. I am always amazed when they bring her out to me at the end of the day, and David was shocked when I brought Duchess home.
|I put a scarf on her to make her a little more girly, but she didn't care for it!|
After getting shaved, Duchess gets a good bath so she actually smells clean for the first time in a very long time! David and I spent a lot of time last night cuddling with her, petting her, and getting used to our new girl. She is still really scared of strangers and doesn't like to go anywhere, so when we brought her home she seemed so grateful to be back. It made me sad to think that maybe she thought we were getting rid of her, but I kept telling her over and over again that we would never leave her and she would always have a home with us. I don't think she'll ever be a "normal" dog, but I hope she knows how much we love her.
Those beautiful brown eyes still get me every time.
