    It's Deska's birthday today. I know he's no longer with us but Tully and I are celebrating anyway. I missed Deska's birthday last year, I was sick and no-one would drive me to see him, so I promised him we'd have a big party next time.

    I put his cake and candle in his food bowl - unfortunately Tully (still on steroids) tried to steal it and burnt the fur on her face! So that was a disaster.

    This is a picture from his last party. He was such a party animal, god I miss that cheeky smile, I miss him so much.

    Can't work out how to get the wax out of her fur either. It's close to her eye.

    Steps to Wash Out the Wax:
    1. Begin by wetting the hair completely with warm water.
    2. Apply a quality conditioner and work it in with your hands. The conditioner will work to remove the wax.
    3. Rinse off the conditioner and apply a quality shampoo.
    4. Work the shampoo in with your fingers.
    5. Rinse and repeat if necessary.

    That's such a sweet thing to do for him Caro, not strange at all. Many people light a candle for loved ones they've lost, why not for our dogs.
    Maybe a warm wash cloth to get the wax out of Tully's fur using Gloria's method?
