Don't you know who I am?
So how has your week been? We have been learning to wear a muzzle around here. Everyone has had a chance to try one on. Brut has to go to the vet today and is now deemed to wear a muzzle after going after the vet last time he saw her.
I bought a mesh one, which I like because he can still pant, drink and take small treats with it on. I was interested in getting a basket one, but couldn't find unless I ordered one and I kept forgetting about it, so running to the store was the easiest. Every store we went to carried only the mesh ones, so that's what he got.
Brut is really good at putting the muzzle on and had no problem with it. Give it a good thirty seconds and no treats and then he starts pawing at it. But today he did simple tricks with it on and didn't bother with it.
Honestly it is a great relief that he has to wear one and I wish I'd thought of it sooner. Brut is great when he is outside his territory. He is actually scared of other dogs at the vet. But I know all it would take is the wrong dog to come in and we would have one hell of scare. So this really settles my nerves. There were times that only my husband and Brut could go into the exam room because I was a nervous wreck. To say I don't trust him would be an understatement. I know him too well. So I think this is going to be a good visit for him today and a real stepping stone. He's getting his Rabies shot and a heartworm test. Wish us luck!
