Ke-ola had a flakey day

Ke-ola says, "I love you Kadante"!
Look at that smile! 
Today was foster brother day. Kadante set time aside to hangout and play with Ke-ola. I'm sure I don't need to write too much as the pictures say it all. They had lots of fun together. Ke-ola loves ruff and tumble play and so does Kadante. He is a tricker, Hip Hop and Fire-knife dancer and martial artist. He's always flipping or jumping or spinning fire. Ke-ola's butt goes crazy the second he sees Kadante. They are like two "action jackson" peas in the preverbal pod. I think Kadante met his match…a match made in heaven.   

He loves to play. He's all boy all day! 
Ke-ola has been itching on his belly and on his back. I believe the itching on his side and back are mostly due to dry flaky skin. He was so emaciated when we got him that he had virtually nothing left in him to condition his skin. We've been giving him cod-liver oil and coconut oil with every meal. 

Itchy flakes go away!
The oils, water and good nutrition are starting to pay off. His fur is become much softer and his skin is more supple. He still has lots of leftover flaky skin so I decided to give him a light brushing to help get rid of the flakes. I'm hoping it will help relive some of his itching. I was amazed at how long it took to get all the flakes off a pup with so little hair. 

He loved his 20+ minute brushing and massage. He kept grunting and snorting with his eyes closed and a smile on his face. He is very trusting when he knows you. He let me roll him this way and that way to get all the flakes off without protest. 

Ke-ola wants to thank one of his angles, Auntie Kym Cloughesy, for his awesome sweater. Our weather keeps going from hot to cold and while Ke-ola has more weight on him so he can regulate his body temperature much better now but he still has bald patches and his fur is thin. His sweater are a treasure. Best of all, his sweater keeps him from further scratching up his chest and tummy. Yay!

Wishing you and your pack Peace, today and everyday. Thank you for visiting.
