Wandering about a new dog groomer.

If you remember, back on July 12th I published a blog about our dogs' last trip to the only groomer they have ever known:

Well, today they are going for the first time to a different groomer.  This may be interesting but I hope it goes as smoothly as possible for all, the pups and the groomer.  This will be quite a different experience for them since this groomer is a female and there may be other dogs and or people that come and go at her place.  She is located along the main highway and next to our post office.  Our dogs will have a lot of new sights, sounds, and smells to get used to.  She shouldn't have much trouble with them since they are not all tangled up like they sometimes get, but on the other hand, since this is a new experience for them, they may give her a hard time.  I will add to this blog after we get them back home and let you all know how it went.  For now, just relax and have another cup of coffee and greet the new day, you hear?

All went well and on tomorrow's blog, I will post pictures of the pups that I took after we got them home.  They used conditioners on them and they are just so soft to touch.  Pictures just don't do them justice.


  1. I hope all goes well. I always hated taking Lady to get her nails trimmed because she fought it so much.

  2. Is this like an old dog learning new tricks?

  3. Our weimaraner got "groomed" yesterday too - a swim in the river with son Caleb, and then he bathed in the shower afterwards. She smells so good and feels so soft.

  4. Gypsy, yes I know what you mean. I would rather pay someone to fight with the dogs. (grin)

    Rob, actually it will be more like old dogs teaching a new groomer new tricks. . .

    Jill, He has short, straight hair, right? Our pups have long hair and thick undercoats.

    Trouble, yep, someone or some dogs will learn new tricks, for sure.

  5. I guess I'd rather take a dog to be groomed than a cat... but then, cats do a pretty good job of grooming themselves.... just get hairballs to hack up.

    1. I have had cats and they have a mind of their own, for sure. No, I wouldn't want the job of grooming a cat.

    2. I think I will wait until tomorrow to put the pictures on of the dogs.
