It was TORTURE THE DOGS time here recently.
It is a three day long process which none of them really appreciate.
Day 1 involves everyone getting their feet and nails trimmed.
Day 2 is all about making sure they are brushed thoroughly, with no 'matts' left behind (knots/tangles)
Day 3 is down to the nitty gritty ..... water, shampoo, conditioner and the BATH TUB..... Once each dog is done with that process they are up on the grooming table, thoroughly dried either with a hair dryer or..... our leaf blower.
These are all the "after" pictures that we did, just for fun - they were all clean , dry, and freshly groomed by this point.
Here are a couple of the out takes --- glowing, 'demonic' eyes and all
This is "finished" collage with captions added, of the outtakes that my DD Meaganne put together.
And, this is the final, finished product.
This is all just to show you that we often have to take a whole lot more pictures than you ever get to see, before we get that one ' perfect' photo.
By the way, while no animal was injured in the taking of these pictures, the whole process did involve a few bad words from the photographer involved when beastie cooperation was not happening.... and there were many doggy treats consumed throughout in order to make cooperating more the thing to do.
Sorry that the print size on the captions is so small, but I don't know how to change that, but Meaganne tells me that if you click anywhere by the pictures, then hold control and the plus sign at the same time it will enlarge the whole thing for you.
