    1. Isn't that cute? And she hopped around on the ground...kind of like saying, "OK..I've showed you how to do it...this time
      you do it all by yourself!" :)

    2. I bet it did. I almost thought from your title (before I saw the photos) that you were talking about your new baby Star's bath... ha!

  8. This is such a cute post. Regarding Star, I would get some tuna in water, add a bit more water with each serving. Even a tbsp at a time of tuna and water might help. Also, add warm water to her soft and hard food. Just a bit each time. She might get used to the hard food softened a bit with a water-based gravy. You can also syringe water into the side of her mouth but they don't usually care for that.

    1. Thanks, Deb...I have tuna in water, so that's a great idea! I knew you'd know! I've done the syringe thing before...not fun but it gets the job done in an emergency. ha.

    1. Hi Hilary! No news on Peaches...he only came back once after his vet trip. Star has been a good distraction for me as I was spending a lot of my day looking out the back door for him. :)
