It’s been quite a while since Suki had her last bath, and today was the day. Do you think Suki has any idea what she’s in for at today’s pet store visit? My guess is no!
The Shiba Inu is a very fastidious and clean animal, so we don’t need to do this too often. I still remember when I gave Suki her very first bath. She was about 10 weeks old. Soon as the water hit her, she let out the famous Shiba Scream. Good night! You’d think I was pouring hot lava on her or something.
Nowadays, she still hates taking baths (or getting wet in general…what are you Suki, a cat?!), but nevertheless tolerates the process:
We’re currently treating Suki’s “allergy eyes.” She gets them every spring for about a month at a a time. Poor itchy-eye’d Suki.
There, good as new. Extra fluffy…and after a day, she still smells like mango. =)
