Driving Huckleberry

Driving Huckleberry to wherever he wants to go on a Friday morning

We took the morning off to drive Huckleberry to our favorite vet Dr Redwine.

He developed a rash under his chin that was sometimes getting infected. Turns out maybe his food dish is too deep letting the oils from the kibble transfer to his chin. It's also possible he's allergic to the plastic dish.

A smaller glass dish with just a light layer of food on the bottom should fix the problem.

CUTE!! We have a black female and she had the same issue. We switched to glass and we've never had an issue.
