Roxy before and after...

Roxy BEFORE....



Roxy after...



Today was a big day. I finally gave in and got Roxy groomed. I loved the old Roxy with all the scruffy "wake up morning" hair but if you have a Standard Poodle you know that this is a must. These dogs have the finest of hair (yes they call it hair not fur) and it not only tangles easily but it is also a magnet for nastyness. Her raw hide juice will now be limited. She also loves to lick banana slugs! Imagine that on a scruffy face! I wonder what the attraction is?
So now she sits on the floor very mad at me for doing this. No joke. I got the "look" and now I am being ignored. Roxy~ I love you. Fluff or no fluff xoxox

She is sooooo depressed! I cant believe this. Does anyone have a dog that gets groomed and takes it personal???? I feel awful. poor girl!

Maybe she's cold without her fluffy fur coat. Just keep telling her how good she looks....you know us girls love to hear that!
What's with banana slugs? I don't think I know what they are....but it sounds gross....are they yellow?

I think you might be right Marie. Because she has been on top of my bed which is heated. She never does this during the day.
OK so I went and checked on her again... she got into my nightstand and ate my earplugs. I am not feeling as bad right now...
Banana slugs are just what you would think. Big yellow and gross (unless you love slugs). I think the dogs get a tingling on their tongues when they lick it. Get a tongue high. Perhaps Roxy is living in the 60's :) Groovy baby!

Ya know...our Josie just got a bathy the other day and then I took her out for potties today AND...guess what???...that little hussy just rolled in a BIG OL' pile of wet leaves out back by the stream! I think if it were up to them, they would not be purty like we would like!!! LOL '-)

BTW: Janell thanks for your recent bid too! I had a feeling...(checked my crystal ball 1st) you would likey! '-)

BIG HUGS,
Chris :-P)

Ya, what is with a sparking clean dog and then them rolling around on the ground??? Do they miss the grunge?? Doggies... little doggies.

Glad I dont have a stream Chris. I KNOW Roxy would love that. So give Josie a kiss from me and tell her to STAY CLEAN! Sorry, Roxy cant give her any lessons. She flunked that class. J

Aren't banana slugs really good for the garden/environment? I laughed out loud at the thought of Roxy getting a buzz off yellow slugs! My past dogs (shih tzu's) have always loved it. They would start running around like puppies again. Hope she is easing up a bit now. xoxo's.. pss.. I am still salivating over the Raven girl!

janell berryman artist-owner said...

Dani, I dont know if they are good for the environment or not, but that is probably true. What I do know is to not step on them in bare feet! I did that last year. Talk about disgusting! And the noise it made... ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww
Roxy is STILL mad at me. Its now 4 pm. Its been exactly 24 hours since her groomer visit. Little miss elephant brain is not letting this go. I am doomed.
