The Toffee Stories - The Siege

In the last episode of "The Toffee Stories" we saw something caught the attention of TOFFEE which had made her worried... What is bothering her? What did she actually see?

Let's find out !!!


Toffee : Damn !!!

Toffee :  Bella .. Any word from our head of security ?

Bella : No boss, unable to contact them.

Toffee : Looks like I have to deal with this myself. Bella.. sound the alarm, I am going in.

Bella : Roger that boss!!!

Toffee goes out and looks at the strangers who are at the gates of PetStepin' and they stare back, not scared and not ready to back down...

Toffee : My God !! There are too many of them...

Now as Toffee enters to confront the strangers, she know she is at a point of no turning back...

Toffee's surrounded...

Who are these strangers ? Where did they come from?

Well Toffee won't know who they are, but we do.... They are the kids from the next door "The Green Pocket" who came to interact with the doggies, but Toffee doesn't know that... Shhh !!!

Toffee : These kids they don't look so bad. So humans what are they here for? Are they here to overthrow me ???

PetStepin Manager : NO Toffee. They are here to learn about the doggies, interact with them and when they heard you were running the place they came to meet the new boss !!!

Toffee : So they are not here to take over the place from me??

PetStepin Manager : NO Toffee.

Toffee : Good ! Well I guess I was worried for no reason.

PetStepin Manager : Exactly !

Toffee : Well in that case you can tell Bella to stop the Potty Cannon.

PetStepin Manager : Huh !!

Toffee : Just tell Bella, she will know it.

PetStepin Manager : Oh, ok.

Toffee : So what do I teach them?

PetStepin Manager : You can teach them how to be good and gentle with dogs.

Toffee : Ok, but no touching my belly it tickles.

PetStepin Manager : Got it.

Toffee : Ok, kids here is what you need to know about my kind, to put in a sentence,

Basically if you do get one of us into your home when you kids grow up, just know you no longer own the place it will be us! So yeah.. we rule over you. We will demand love, attention and more over food. What do you get in return ?? We will give you unconditional love...

Well anyway that's all the two minutes I have for you right now.. I don't do cuddles and licks.. for that we have "Champ".. you can deal with him.

Champ enters...

Champ : Kids, give me a minute let me settle down, then you can brush me.. just a side note, I like belly rubs, so yeah.. dont wait.. have at it..

Champ : Yep... Best day ever ..

So as Toffee feared there was nothing to worry about, there was no attack or siege on PetStepin', and we were not planning any coupe against her, it was just cute little kids from "The Green Pocket" who were keen to interact with the doggies. Well anyway it was a fun day as the kids got to learn new things with dogs, had fun interacting with Toffee and Champ, learnt to brush the dogs, Bathe them etc...

When You Look Good, You Feel Good

As you all know we re-launched the Paw'lished (Grooming Spa) here at PetStepin' .

Here are the five grooming tips from Anoma Suresh (Certified Pet Stylist) which can help you groom your pets efficiently at your home because it is very important to know and understand how important it is to groom your pets.

It is very important to groom your pets regularly to keep their skin and coat healthy and keep them clean and happy.

Here are the grooming tips that can help you maintain your pets :

1) Always Brush Regularly : It's very important to brush your pets regularly to avoid matts or shedding. Regular brushing removes dead hair, helps in circulate natural oils for a clean and healthy coat and skin. Especially the breeds with the long coats should be brushed more often than the one with the short coats.

2) Choosing the right shampoo : First rule if you are grooming a pet, the right shampoo has to be chose according to the skin condition and texture of the fur. Absolutely no human shampoos, pets' coat and skin is different from that of a human. You can also different type of shampoos if your pet has a specific requirement like allergies or skin issues, tick & flea problems. If in doubt it is always advised to consult a professional groomer or your Vet.

3) Clipping of nails : It is highly advisable that you do not clip a pet's nail if you do not know how to do it. Always use the clippers that are well suited for your pet, like small pets guineas pigs, hamsters and cats u can use small clippers and for dogs a bigger clipper. And on the other hand if you are clipping your pet's nail, you need to pay attention to the blood veins as you don't end up bleeding your pet's nail. It's always advisable to do it under the supervision of an expertise to avoid accidental bleeds. Get it always done by a certified groomer or your vet.

4) Using the right equipment : If you are planning to groom your pet at your home not necessarily you will have all the equipments that the professional groomers have but you can buy the basic equipments that can help you in your in home groom.

There are 3 different types of brushes you can use for basic grooming in pets,

Bristle Brush: A bristle brush can be used for both short coats as well as long coats. This brush is used to remove finer dirt from your pet's coat.

Slicker Brush: If you have a long coat dog then this type of brush will help remove matted and tangled hair.

Rubber Brush: These are meant for short-haired dogs.

5) Ears and teeth matters too : Grooming is just not about the coat of the pet. Always check your pet's ears and teeth to makesure they are kept clean and healthy to avoid ear infections or foul smell and to avoid bad breath. Specially pets with floppy ears or pets that enjoy getting wet are the ones most prone to catch an infection.

You pet needs to be groomed every 2 weeks to a month to stay healthy and happy. 
Also if you feel all these sound complicated, you can take your pet for a grooming spa at a pet salon or look for a home service at your convenient.
