After Nine Years, Rusty Gets Groomed
Rusty has been back home with the Fulkerson family for less than a week. There seems to be no end to the hugs and kisses from his family. Even though there is so much love in the family, there are still the issues of his health. The ear mites took a toll on the area around his ears leaving open wounds that are now healing. Layers of matted fur, over grown since last winter had taken over his entire body. He needed a haircut to allow for new growth of healthier hair.
Yesterday afternoon Stephanie Fulkerson brought her “handsome boy”, as she called him, to Hot Dogz Grooming, 1028 W. Shannon Ave. No amounts of combing could remove the mats. Rusty was ready to face the razor. Below is a progress of his hair cut. He was given what the groomer called, a Hawaiian cut. He got to keep his mane, the fluff to his tail and the hair on his boots. Even after the shave, Stephanie still called him, a “handsome boy.”
