Evan has one of his grooming appointments today, which means this little back end of his is getting trimmed up. It also means he'll be getting a pedicure.
For anyone who might be new or might not remember, Evan is hind limb paralyzed and has urinary incontinence. Those two combined means he stays his cleanest, healthiest self when his rear end is shaved. Since he won't let me do it, he goes to our veterinary clinic's groomer for a spa day every couple of weeks. He's not the biggest fan of it, but it helps keep UTIs and urine scald away, so sorry, Evan, but it's a necessary evil.
Happy Monday, friends!

Tip of the Day
Though we're more than a tad bit late in the season to give this tip, we're going to give it nonetheless. Today's tip relates to the furnace, and we want to remind you to have a professional inspect your furnace before use every year, or as needed. An inspection could help detect any issues that might make running the furnace a risk. This in turn of course gives you the chance to have any necessary repairs or replacements made, so that neither your furbaby nor yourself are put in unnecessary danger.
Also relating to the furnace, don't forget to replace the filter regularly. A clean filter not only allows the furnace to run optimally, but also helps eliminate allergens, dust, and other such debris from the air. Ensuring ideal air quality with a clean furnace and air filter is something to especially take into consideration if your furbaby, or yourself, has asthma or other respiratory issues. The furnace plays a crucial role for your furbaby and yourself on cold winter days, so don't forget to give it the care and attention it needs.
