Hot Oil Massage

Lowri - Last night, on the advice of MP, TM gave me a hot oil massage.  She got some stuff at the store and put me in the tub.  She soaked me down and then rubbed the hot oil into all my brindle areas (except my head).  Then she massaged me for a couple of minutes while the hot oil did its stuff on my coat.  Then she rinsed me off and towel dried me.  I felt GREAT!  TM says my coat was very shiny. 

MP says TM should do this every week to keep my coat in great shape.  Since I like playing in the mud so much, I guess my coat needs all the help it can get. 

Kearney - Girls! <snort>  I am glad I don't have to be a foo-foo dog any more.  I got to play with the ducks for a little bit tonight.  TM needed to catch one of the boys to take it to PR's place, and I got to help.  The two girls at PR's place are laying eggs like crazy and trying to set on them.  TM figured a boy should be involved for the highest level of success in hatching out ducklings.  She and PR are going to collect the eggs for another week or so and then let the ducks try setting.


  1. Was the oil to make the coat shiny and look good or was there other reasons?

    1. I was told that I should do this for Lowri. Being the good co-owner, I did. However, Penni explained that Angie does this weekly for the dogs she has out. It helps keep the coat turning over so they are never really out of coat. It also makes the colors stand out and makes the coat shine. Alberto Vo5 Hot Oil Treatment was the recommended product. The instructions I received were to follow the directions on the package.
