Tummy Tufts

Ziggy has tummy tufts!  It's taken a long time, but there is now some fur slowly coming through on his tummy.

He's still got lots of fur missing so has had to wrap up for walks, but he's happy and doesn't even mind wearing pink!

It's been a long process to get this far, Malaseb bath's every other day for the past 6 months, medication and regular visits to the vet.  But Ziggy is the happiest boy and happily gets in the bath and lets me rub in the shampoo and clean his ears so we can keep the infections under control.  Ziggy likes being dried with the hairdryer after he's been towel-dried.

After recent dreay, rainy weather, today was bright but cold, so we took a walk up at Black Dog Halt. 

It didn't take Ziggy long to get slobber on his face:

Looks sunny but the wind was brrry cold!

Ziggy does like to sniff!

Once we were home Ziggy had his bath and spent some quality time on the sofa, doing what he does best - snoozing!

New Year Catch-Up

It’s been a lovely Christmas and New Year for Ziggy.  Actually, the past month or so have been fabbie for our baldy boy as he has had all sorts of outings and fun.  

There's been walks in the fields, despite the dreary weather:

Ziggy has been to work a few times, which he loves as he gets to hang out with his BFF, Lilly:

We went to Stratford Upon Avon to visit the Christmas market and also see our friends from the Black Dog Company, which also meant lunch out, something Ziggy is always keen to be part of:

Ziggy chose this lovely Brussel Sprout bandana from The Black Dog Company:

We’ve visited our lovely friends in Derbyshire where Ziggy got to catch up with his doggy friends Scout and Ruby and got chased out of the paddock by one of the horses.

Ziggy acquired a lovely, snuggly pink fleece from Sarah as it is too big for Scout but a perfect fit for a less hairy boy:

Back at the office, Ziggy and Lilly dressed up in their festive finery: 

Dark nights have meant dark walks but Ziggy is fully accessorised for all scenarios:

Ziggy's Grandyma came to stay with us for Christmas.  Ziggy loves his Grandyma so was very happy to have her company and show off all of his gifts.  He did actually have the most - 20!! 

Opening that many gifts did make quite a mess but Ziggy was certainly enjoying himself:

New Toys!!!

New Toys for Shredding!!

Ziggy enjoyed a Christmas Day walk up on the Downs:

And a walk at Jubilee Lake and didn't care that he was a boy wearing pink; he was warm and that was the main thing:

Over the holidays we had a fun Tweet-Up with Spangawoolley's Norty Lucy and Dilly and lovely Lab, Mollie.  Ziggy thoroughly enjoyed splashing around in the mud and getting filthy!

There was a trip to Jollyes pet store, which is one of Ziggy's favourite places:

And also to John Coles Park where he got to run around and follow some interesting sniffs:
