Maggie has had an eventful week at MAGSR. As regular grooming and bathing has been key to her recovery, Maggie has had daily brushing sessions over the last week to help remove the extra fur and mats found all over her body. As is evident from the picture, these sessions tend to produce piles of fur. Although Maggie wasn't so sure about these brushing sessions at first, she has begun to sit down or lay down throughout each session. This has been a slow and steady process; however, it seems that Maggie now understands that the brush brings comfort and relief. In addition to brushing sessions, Maggie is also getting bathed every two to three days with a medicated shampoo. Although she still isn't thrilled about the water, Maggie relaxes while being massaged with the shampoo and absolutely loves having her head dried with the towel. After bathing and grooming sessions, Maggie tends to find a comfortable spot and sleeps. Spa sessions sure are tiring.
This week Maggie has started eating more regularly; this has dramatically increased her energy. Although she still waits for a special Stella and Chews dinner pattie before eating her food, Maggie is more enthusiastic about meal times. Perhaps she has learned to be a little spoiled. Who could resist spoiling such a sweet soul? With increased energy has come a desire for greater attention, a curiosity to explore new places in the house, and a greater interest in walks. Maggie loves being outside and would happily spend hours hanging with her people sniffing the flowers and lounging in the grass.
