Furry little Albert has been working overtime to get shed out. This is what I get from one pass on one side with the Furminator each morning.
As the fur flies, a few skin issues have revealed themselves and I am treating them as we go. His poor little ears are especially chewed up and the black flies have been attacking them relentlessly. The only way to keep them off and give his ears a chance to heal is to keep his ears completely protected from the bugs at all times. The flies are at their worst at dusk and dawn, which are the two times of the day that I am not around when I have to go to work. To give his ears a chance to heal I decided to alter one of the fly masks to make an ear protector he can wear all night.
I think it looks a bit like a jouster's helmet.
Little Albert Einstein, dressed for battle and ready to take on all challengers!
