A Day At The Groomers :(

So my dad says to me, "hey Sam, want to meet some girls?" And because I want to get out of the house and go for a walk, I say "okay". So he loads me into the truck and we end up at the groomers. I already know Audrey and Debbie. I don't like going to the groomers because they have to cut my nails, comb and brush out knots and handle my front legs. And even though my dad is always there petting me, the whole experience is a little frightening for me.






Thank goodness, we're done and I'm safely back in my kennel.

Now it's Owen's turn. (Owen's always kissing the girls).

Jetta's all done here.

Tuvia's not very happy (her ears are flat)

While the other kids went home, I went for my weekly swim. 
Here's me getting toweled off by Bre and my mom. I  already know these women dad.

Maybe we can go for walkies after this and meet some new girls. 
Want to come along Mitch, Deccy and Blu? Bye for now.

    1. Hi Mitch, I think that Deccy wants to drop into the pub for a beer during our walkies. We have some good ones so you'd better bring along your mom and dad.

  2. You all look so fluffy and spruced up. I'm sure your grooming professionals were happy to see such a beautiful crew coming their way all at once!

    1. Hmmm...my friend Debbie who walks us during the day takes me for long walks. I even met some real nurses who helped Debbie stretch my hind legs as part of my daily exercise. Let us know if you need a XL or L size cool coat for Darwin, okay?

  6. Going to the Vet is not my favorite thing either!
    But sure all the girls love you!
    I hope you felt relaxed with your swimming session!

  7. Hey Sam...
    Is it already grooming time again? My, how time flies. I'm curious - how often do you get the treatment?
    Glad to see that you're getting your exercise too.

    1. Hi Maxmom, we usually go every 5 weeks. Our furs grow pretty fast so it's really a cut and trim, good brushing, nails and pads that get done. We get bathed at home, maybe once every couple of months or so.

  8. Howdy Sam, looks like you have those girls wrapped around your paw. Sounds like there might be a 'boys day out' coming up. Now we'd like to see photos of that! No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  13. Hey Sam, That was pretty sneaky of Dad asking if you wanted to meet some girls.. Bet that's not what you had in mind. We must say you were furrry brave to let them clip nails and stuff.Having nails clipped is not a favorite thing of mine. I think Mom is going to give me a bath and trim my hairs cuz she says I am looking shaggy. What is she thinking? Have a good day my furiend.
