It's so undignified!

Could have called this post the Many Faces of Amyra, but Rufus is in here, too.

Amyra and Rufus both have white and pink noses.  They sunburn when the days get long. 

Which doesn't make either of them really appreciate sunblock.

I don't really blame her - I don't really like the feel of it going on either. 

Rastafarian Rufus
 Rufus prefers to combat bugs and sun with his own personal brand of sunblock - a nice mudbath.  After the last rain he came in wearing enough mud beads for several nice mud pies.   My mom was kind enough to de-mud him, which he thoroughly enjoyed.  In fact, I suspect had the mud not dried up overnight, he would have rolled in it again just for the extra attention.

Amyra, on the other hand, is not so copacetic about her time spent soaking in the bucket. 

That expression says it all, doesn't it.  Actually she's been pretty good about it - only tipped the bucket over once.

What kind of sunblock do you use? I just use people stuff on Casper and it works fine.

Amazing that you can even get Amyra's foot in a bucket!

Silly Rufus and his mud baths lol

She was surprisingly cooperative, although not noticeably happier about it any of the nights.

I use the Coppertone SPF 50 Waterbabies stuff - same thing I use on me. They tend to rub most of it off on their legs by the end of the day, but it does help. I forgot to start putting it on when the days got long this year, and Rufus's nose burned and started to peel :(
