Our first grooming experience

Steve already told you that Dad went to Atlanta last weekend. We had a pretty exciting weekend without him. We had to get up really early on Friday so Mom could take Dad to the airport. For some reason, we didn’t get to ride along, but that was okay because we got to enjoy our Kongs in the crate and Mom was home before 6:30 AM, the time she usually leaves for work!

Mom took the day off so we thought we were in for a great day of relaxation and squirrel chasing. However, at 7:45 AM, Mom put our leashes on and we had to get into the 4Runner for a car ride. Guess where we went? The groomer. Mom said that brushing us every day was just not cutting it, so she called in the professionals.

We had never been to a groomer before. When we got there, the groomers let us run around and explore everything. We were the first dogs at the shop.

The groomers said that it would take 4 hours to groom us, so Mom decided not to wait around. I don’t know what she did while she was home alone, but before we knew it, she was back at the groomer to pick us up. She kept going on and on about how pretty we were. We did not pose for a good picture at the groomer.

Mom had to laugh because there was husky fluff all over the grooming shop and the groomers said that they had actually already tried to clean it up! The blower really helps us shed a lot of fur.

Once we got home, we were pretty tired, so Mom got some pictures of us. 

Steve used to have zebra stripes on his sides, but now all that old fur is gone and he looks much better.

I got a really pretty purple Hawaiian bandanna and I think I look pretty gorgeous wearing it. Do you agree Thunder?

Mom says we’ll have to go back to the groomer again sometime. I suppose that would be okay as long as the visits are few and far between. After all, after Mom picked us up, we went to Paddywack and picked up our new dog food. Dog food is always a good thing.

You guys look great. I'm glad I don't have to go to a groomer though. Let me know more about that food. Food is a good subject.

Well, I guess it doesn't sound too bad. I've never been to the groomer, mom's been using that new magic brush on me...

My grandma would say "You sure do clean-up well" I'm not sure that that means cuz I think you looked good before.

Beautiful of course. You are lucky your Mom sent you to a professional. Lola could stand a good grooming! But the rumor around here is it's Heidi's turn.

We go every few months. The only good thing I can say is afterwards, I am so fuzzy and soft that everyone wants to cuddle with me.

And guess what? WE are on the same FOOD!!! Orijen rules
