HA! Try telling HER that!
You'd think we abuse the animal as badly as she shakes and tries to hide when it comes to getting her ears cleaned and the betadine put on her.

Let me tell you, Mil, because of your aloe suggestion and bag balm suggestion (was that you?) and those pledgets and rinse I got, Ella gets the daily skin spa treatment at least 3 times a day.
And thanks to Misskiwi she got another bath today and I made her stay in the bathroom with me while I showered, then I got out and rinsed her off.
She's getting better about allowing me to put the stuff on her (meaning she doesn't tremble like I'm going to make her take a bath or something) and I think she realizes it actually feels good.
I use a pledget on her paws whenever we come back in from outside and sometimes I'll use the rinse instead. I use the aloe after the pledgets.
And I'm ALREADY seeing improvements in her skin!
