Re: Grooming & coat condition with HLD

An old boy I had absolutely loved a warm damp flannel rub down. I very gently started with his face and smoothed it down in one go down his body. I swear he smiled while I done this :D

Fab idea about the oil ;)

Stressed after recent loss

I had my gorgeous Billy pts on Thursday and its hit his 2 brothers hard :cry: they seem so nervous, don't want to come out and have gone off their food. Iv got them in a SRS and decided to block off the bottom half thinking the smaller space might help. I'm not sure if that's the right thing to do. ...
