Everything is a game to Happy: brushing, bathing, wiping wet paws, ear cleaning - it doesn't matter what it is. And that makes the object of the activity a toy to be snatched and.played keep away with. It would be mildly frustrating if it weren't so cute. She doesn't really resist anything, just turns it into a game. I let her have the bristle brush while I take the slicker to her. That seems to satisfy her until I'm through. Besides food, what do you use to distract your silly SPOO?
