Today I was busy again...one of the things I accomplished was getting my puppy all groomed... and I must say looking spiffy! The whole process is quite exhausting and I am now starting to understand why people shave...all their dogs hair off.............. I haven't done that yet...cause I figure he is going to look pretty strange without all that hair. But the whole job from beginning to end took about....2 hours....and with his excitable personality (?) it is quite a workout!! I figure the equivalency of raking the yard for about an hour...no make that an hour and a half... But I definitely think he feels better when it is all done; not just cause he has my constant attention for a extended amount of time...but I figure it must feel pretty good to be all clean, and sweet smelling!!(for a change) anyways...there is a small amount of satisfaction for myself as well. A job well done!! so...until the next time.....

    We have one eskie we shave in the summer. He has a thick, ropey coat and it always mats no matter how hard we try to keep it up. He also has a hyper personality so it's a real chore to get him shaved at all. I always say I'm going to take him to a groomer but I never do. Your pup looks good!

    Awww he's such a cute dog! What's his name? I can imagine it took 2 hours... my sister has a dog that has kind of wiry looking hair... she almost looks like a red healer dog, but we're not sure of her breed. Someone dropped her and her brother off along side the road, then someone picked them up and brought them to the vet clinic where my sister worked... my sis was working one Thanksgiving feeding all the animals and doing the general chores, she took my mom, she told mom that if someone didn't come and take them off of their hands, they'd have to put them down, well mom saw the 2 puppies and said no we can't let that happen to them... she soon took them home and we decided to give them both good homes, we found a good home for the brother, but her we couldn't find a home for, my sister ended up getting attached and so she's now my sister's dog, she's such a fuzzy dog, that we ended up calling her Fuzzy, lol. Anyway, her hair can get so long and so tangled, well not as long as your dog's fur, but still it gets so messy. So in the summer she starts to trim her and then when it gets hotter in the summer she shaves pretty much all the fur off of her, she does not look like her normal self, but she seems to feel so much better as she's not so hot.
    Anyway, great job on getting a workout with your dog being the center of attention, lol. They need the love and attention too. But PJCHILIS is right, we all need pampering once in a while. When's the last time you got to have yourself some pampering? ;)
