Default All groomed and pretty

Kyleigh certainly doesn't lead a 'sheltered' life, and this summer was no exception. She's been covered in mud, leaves, slimes, fish guts, dead gopher pieces, and anything else she can find to roll in.

It's finally cold here in Ottawa, so I took her in to the groomers (I WANTED to leave and have a nap, but she decided she was going to HOWL like crazy) so I ended up staying and simply holding her still while the groomer worked her magic.

2.5 hours later, I walked out with a very relieved puppy ... BUT she looks stunning!!! Here she is in all her glory posing on my bed. (Yes, I made that quilt too!)

Thanks all!

I so did NOT want to take her out last night. I was thinking, can I not have her look pretty for more than 4 hours?

I did bring her out of course, but NO water, and NO forests ... the burrs that coat picks up are crazy!

The howling? OMG I was embarrassed! She was LOUD. BUT, there were some other dogs there that were just as loud, I've NEVER just dropped her off anywhere, and let's face it, grooming is NOT normal dog stuff. I'm sure she would have been content with me just cutting the burrs and mats out and giving her a good brushing. BUT, she was FILTHY so it was a bit beyond doing myself.

She was really good with the groomer. I was simply "there" and would hold her head every now and then, and just make sure she didn't try and jump out of the tub / off the table.

It was funny tho, because the groomer said if you did it more often, she'd be fine ... I asked ... how often ... well, at least once or twice a month ... EEEK At $90 a pop? I'll pass and do her myself in the backyard in the spring / summer and fall and professionally once or twice a year!

It should be normal dog stuff! Honestly, had you simply walked out the door, your dog probably would have been fine. Mostly the howling and carrying on is for YOU, and she'll probably quiet down when she realizes you're gone. It was nice of the groomer to let you stay, but I'm sure you have other stuff to do besides stand there cooing at your nervous poopsie for 2 hours.

Professional groomers know how to handle dogs, she didn't really *need* you to stand there. In fact, most dogs are actually better behaved when their owner is NOT present. I know, it seems counterintuitive, but I speak from experience. Don't let the canine drama suck you in!

She looks great! $90 seems high, though. I just did three coated GSDs for $55 each--maybe I need to raise my prices!
