What went down at the Purple Groom Brand Ambassador shoot

The thing about pomeranians is that they're well, extremely hairy. They have fine, dense hair that sticks everywhere, plus it grows super fast. That's why I have Snaps groomed at least once a month - that's non-negotiable!

When Purple Groom asked us if we want to be brand ambassadors, we immediately said yes. I was pretty excited because Snaps loves having his photos taken. :D It's his first time to be in a real shoot so I knew that it would be a grand experience for him. There would be other dogs too which means that he'd get a chance to play!

So! Here's what happened at the shoot.

From Etude House Korea, with love

I love receiving and opening packages. Unfortunately, I'm not the only one. I got a pink box from Korea last Friday so I was extremely excited to open it...but a certain pomeranian got to it first. THIS HAPPENS ALL THE TIME. I'm not kidding.

To wit:

"A box from Etude House full of goodies! Yaay!"

"OMG IS THIS MINE. CAN I OPEN IT."

"But - "

"BUBBLE WRAP MY FAVERIT THING."

"We need to recycle that Snaps. Stop popping the bubbles! Hey!"

Snaps The Ridiculously Photogenic Dog

It's been a while since I wrote about Snaps here, so I thought I'd share some photos I took the other day. Oh he's doing very well, thank you! He had an eating problem for a while which caused him to barf a lot, but we think he got over it. We got him Royal Canin dog food and pate which he finally accepted as facts of life. His vitamins also help his appetite, too!

"What's up?"

It's difficult not to spoil a dog you love, but you have to make him realize that human food is not the rule but an exception.

The Snaps Report: Sick and spoiled

I told myself that I won't be one of those people who spoil their dogs to no end. I always thought that the money and time for that can go to better indulgences (like shoes). But really, how can you not spoil a dog like Snaps? He is sweet, friendly, and usually well-behaved.

Yes, that is the newly-groomed, newly-vaccinated, and rather sick Snaps. He has a bacterial disease at the moment (major sad face), but he is already on medication and we hope that he will get through it safely soon. According to the vets, he probably got it from the water in Tiendesitas. They mentioned that they had a confined dog patient recently who has the same malady - like Snaps, the dog was also bought from Tiendesitas.

So let this serve as a warning: as soon as you get your dog, get him vaccinated and tested for common diseases like this. (The name of the disease escapes me at the moment). Check his stool, too. It should be firm and formed, not mushy.

Anyway, we went to Dogs and the City in Burgos Circle, The Fort to have him groomed as well as to shop for some essentials.
