Cooper loves to get brushed.
When he sees me take his brush out, he runs over and lays down. Cooper's hair is very short, so I try to be gentle.
After brushing his back and sides, Cooper rolls over so his belly can be brushed.
This always makes me sad. Cooper has little hair on his belly. Even worse, Cooper's skin which should be pink, is black.
Dr Duffy said that Cooper had skin ailments before (allergies, fleas, etc) that went untreated and as a result the skin on his belly and legs is black and rough.
I hope that in time Cooper's coat will grow in. I don't know if his skin will ever be pink. I wonder how people could have been so unkind to this sweet dog.
