A couple of you have been asking me if Mom makes an effort to brush my hair before making me pose for pictures. Well, the answer is NO. She's super lazy and she'll probably just smooth down the flyaway hairs from my ears before snapping away.
I know some of you hate taking showers but surprisingly, I'm actually quite game to take one. I'll just stand there and let Mom massage/gently scratch me all over. It feels so good that I wanna just lie in the bathroom and let her do her thing. But there's one thing I HATE about showering, it's that hot gun Mom uses to get me dry. She doesn't allow me to go roll around on the mat or carpet. So I'll squirm and squirm until Mom passes me a greenie to chew on. After I get my greenie, I'll just concentrate on it and let Mom do whatever she wants - yes, that includes pointing the hot gun at me. :) After drying me, she'll apply a generous amount of leave-in conditioner before brushing me. The leave-in condition allows my hair to remain tangle free which means no painful brushing sessions. Yipeee!
Anyhoo, Mom swears by Aloveen Shampoo & Conditioner to get my hair nice and glossy. Darn, I thought it was because I had good genes or something. It smells of Oatmeal & Aloe Vera - very yummy....I should know cos I tried eating it once during my shower. Needless to say, it was the first and last time I tried eating it. haha... I used to have dry flaky skin when I first arrived in Singapore and Mom was totally freaking out. Apparently, it's common for puppies to have white flakes and also because there was a climate change (from Australia to Singapore). After getting recommendations from doggie forumers, she decided to let me try Aloveen. After the first bath, she was sold on Aloveen and went to stock up on them. :)

Oh yeah, Mom says Mr Brown Bear will not be going through surgery cos well, she can't figure out how to "save" him. Mom has never been good with her fingers (needle work) so I get to play with him again.
