Emma is Growing Up!

Emma is getting so big now! Both in height and in girth. Just look at her in her big-girl kennel!

Yesterday she went in for her 12 week old shots, and she did not like getting them AT ALL! She yelped both times, poor thing… However, the vet said she looks great and her last round of shots are at the end of the month. Woohoo!

Tuesday night, Aaron gave Emma a bath, and ever since then, you can REALLY see her curls. It’s absolutely adorable:

However, despite eating a fish-protein dog food and having a bath using oatmeal based shampoo, she’s still really flaky (we’re talking a lot of dandruff). Anyone have any good recommendations to get rid of it? Is that a common condition for Dobermans or Poodles?

    OMD Emma, you are growing like a weed. Tell your Mom to give you fish oil capsules. It will take about 30 days to see a difference but that should help your skin a lot. Also, my vet said it is safe to use Selsun Blue Shampoo. Do NOT use Head and Shoulders. Different ingredients.

        Oh most definitely. She avids Omega 9, and just gets Omega 3 or 3 and 6. Mom usually gets ours (she takes them too) from Pilgrimspride.com because they are buy 1 get 2 free, buy 2 get 3 free, etc. Or she waits until the drugstore has buy one get one free. She’s a scrooge. Ho, ho, ho.

        Well, after Mom got done chewing me out for calling her names, she said to tell you vitacost.com is also a great place to shop.

        Hahaha! Lexi (and Lexi’s mom), thanks for the great recommendations!! I’m a “scrooge” too, so it’s appreciated 😉

      Thank you 🙂 Most of the time we don’t notice it because it’s happening so gradually – other times, I’ll pick her up or she’ll lay on me and I realize she’s growing into a DOG!!

        You see her every day and you don´t notice it, but when you look at the photos there is already a huge difference.
