Blush My sister's dog has not had a bath since he arrived in our house!

Coming up for a year ago, my younger sister got to keep a Siberian Husky because the neighbor of my older sister had issues with a dog walker who basically betrayed her. The previous owner of the dog allowed this other person to walk the dog, then decided to find a cheaper way of doing so. Then the woman made up stories because of that, and my sister got to keep him.

However, he has not had a bath since he arrived way last August. We also have a Yorkie, and the smaller dog had to have a few enemas due to ill health, and he has a bulging hernia. They generally never fight, although dogs should be separated at meal times.

That's very unclean, though. The dog's hair surely has a lot of germs by now. My sister is a bit slow with some important chores.

Huskies require regular grooming/combing. Does your sister do that?

I don't think she does, but she has a lot to type up for her lawyer over the matter with her kids. The entire house we live in is very cluttered. My dad will be home from the hospital soon, and he'll be back to his usual complaining, I'm sure.
