If you do, I must have it.
I am getting lots of hits from people searching for "words for send off." Makes me wonder how many people are going away. And where they are going.
The Kids got a touch-up grooming and a bath yesterday. They are sooooo soft! I love to cuddle them after a bath. And it makes me think about why I don't do it more often. Well, of course, it is because it is messy and hard work! But they feel so good and so do I after the job is done. I used to bathe three dogs every week, and I was still working full time. And I was 15 years younger, so that has a lot to do with it. Anyway, I need to do the bathing more often than monthly, period.
Look at this fluffy little darling!
Help! I've fallen, and I can't get up!
Awww. Look at this sweet face. I think he's dreaming of chewy bones. Or me. :)
When I was clipping their nails, Joey was very wiggly and resistant. I haven't had a problem with any of them doing this in the past. I should have taken that as a sign to leave well enough alone, but I simply plunged ahead, and of course, by now you've guessed what happened. Yes, I cut one too short while trying to wrestle His Royal Wiggleship. Poor boy. He didn't even whimper, but he bled big time. I treated it with styptic and held him, cuddling him, till it stopped. I felt soooo bad! Then I put him down and went on to the next Kid.
When I finished the next one, I discovered that Joey had walked all over the house, leaving spots of blood on carpet and tile .... everywhere! It took me almost an hour to clean the spots, and all the time, I was cursing myself for hurting that sweet baby! I am looking for an alternative! No, not Pedipet (or whatever it is called) .... the vet's tech tried it and says it really sucks. I'm thinking I'll try filing them with a heavy-duty emery board, what the vet tech does with her own dogs. I definitely can't bring myself to clip poor Joey's nails again; he probably won't let me near his paws again, anyway!
He appears to be glowering at me in this photo, but I don't think so. I think he has forgiven me.
OK, I'm hopping in the shower. Y'all have a good weekend!!
