Hello effurybody, Dusty here. I have the blog today because I was given a haircut and a bath. Being both long-haired and a boar I have the worst of both worlds. My long hair picks up sawdust and trails it around with me like little people sitting on a carriage and, being a boar, means I have a scent gland on my bottom. This means that I can get rather disgusting from time to time as grease clumps up the hair around my gland.
So, first, I had a haircut. I am a very good boy and sit still while being trimmed. I sit even stiller with a bribe, there’s nothing like food to convince me to be good. I was then whisked away upstairs for a bath. Cupcake had a bath last wheek but now it was my turn, along with Pip and Mop too.
The hoomans say I look like a drowned rat after a bath. My hair makes me look bigger than I am so when it’s wet I look rather skinny. I have a very fast metabolism and hardly put on weight, weighing roughly 800g which is unusual for a boar of my age.
Stay clean effurybody and try and avoid this miserable weather that whee are having at the minute – yuck!
