A Day at the Spa...

...for the dogs. 

I should preface this by saying I completely understand if you click away.  And roll your eyes.  And say, "Really?"  But this is for my kids.  Who call home and ask how the dogs are doing.  Not how I'm doing.  How the dogs are doing. 

I can say that 2 out of 3 of them are doing way better this evening after their day at the groomer's.  Chuck treated them (really me...the resident cutter......groom doesn't really describe what I do to them) to a good grooming.  This isn't something we do very often so it was a real treat...for ME.

These dogs aren't very pretty to begin with (although very lovable), but they are way prettier now.  And I should be ashamed that I let them get this bad.......but we've had a cold, cold winter and they needed their fur. I did cut Maggie's bangs one night because she couldn't see out of them.  But other than that it's been awhile. 

Maggie...Before.  She looks like something related to Big Foot. 

Maggie....After.  She's feeling extremely light.

Dixie....Before.  I called her name so she would look at me as I took the picture. 
She took the name calling to mean I would play ball with her. 
She stays ready for someone to play. 

And we're sooo over it.


Sadie...Left out of the fun.
She looks depressed here but that's her everyday look. 


"He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
 You are his life, his love, his leader.
 He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
 You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion."

  1. Your crew are adorable plus I just lovelovelove that quote!! LOVE!!

  2. Lol...Maggie looks fat with chicken legs.. and that's one of the best "haircut" looks I've ever seen on Dixie..she actually looks kinda cute there. Congrats on getting them groomed.

  3. wow, they look so much better. i new knew they could look like that! i think you should fit a monthly grooming in the budget. (petsmart isn't too expensive.)

  4. Our Gracie sheds, so I try to brush her every other day. After I take her to the groomers I can go a week before I have to brush her - love those groomers:) Because of the picture on top I have to ask if you often wore head scarves growing up? I did - I have many photos wearing them - my mom even made some to match the outfit she had also made me to wear.
