INTRODUCING MY FAVOURITE SERIAL KILLER
Who could muzzle their own dog?
Me, that's who. No it's not a fashion statement. But I've been walking this big furry serial killer around for a couple weeks now. The truth is I have the most beautiful and warm hearted dog. It's not up for debate. It's an empirical fact.
This very sweet, fluffy, giant muppet is a secondhand guy. And when I adopted him I adopted his ANXIETY too. And well... I have learned to love & care for both of them.
FRANKLY IT'S NOT ALWAYS BEEN AN EASY RIDE
This adorable guy stands tall and acts completely friendly. He will approach strangers with a happy tail and ears. UNTIL a stranger pats him. Or when he needs to examined by a vet. Then.... WATCH OUT!
So.... I have spent a year seasoning my beloved criminal to this muzzle... because he and I were both so traumatised by our last visit to the vet. I knew he was a bit rough around the edges but I didn't know the full Cujo that was lying in wait until then. Chewie really scared the crap out of us all!
INTRODUCING THE MAGIC TREAT MASK!
That's what we affectionately call master Chewie's muzzle here at the den. And let me tell you, the wearer is highly rewarded with the best treats every time. It has taken me a long time to get my guy onboard with this tool. I mean I was frankly scared to put it on him because he is QUITE reactive to having things done to him. But now I can keep Chewie (and the world at large!) much safer.
I SHARE THIS WITH YOU FOR 2 REASONS:
#2 MUZZLES ARE KIND, not cruel.
Stay safe. Be kind. 😇
And have a super waggly one!
Zoe & Chewie
