This brush, this blanket, this baby: all soft.
Guinness has been getting treatments for her ears for over a month now. The ear wash dries inside and around her ears and stiffens the hair there. We use this brush to try to work it out and make that part of her coat as soft as the rest of her. I know she’s so tired of having her ears treated twice a day, so I try to make the brushings seem like she’s being pampered and petted.
As for the treatments, we can see the difference–her equilibrium is slowly improving, and there are sounds she can hear, mostly if they’re sounds she’s prepared for.
Last month marked the twelfth year she’s been with us. She’ll be thirteen in April. And I think anyone who’s met her would agree: the best and most real softness is what Guinness brings to your heart.
