dog grooming

Who is this elegant stranger? And where has Penny gone?




Yes, it's still her. Looking very aristocratic, in my opinion. We've always thought her lineage was royal, except for her mother's 'unfortunate encounter' with that canine gypsy at Macdonalds.

She's just come back from a grooming session at Yuppy Puppy in Macleod. I like going there because it's a specialised grooming shop, not part of another business, and I feel welcome to stay while she is groomed. There's a big glass window through which you can see everything, and a comfortable chair to sit and wait.

Of course, Penny's not in a very happy mood, as you might have noticed from the photo, so I thought her patience deserved to be rewarded with a new type of treat, some strange-looking thing made from goat meat.

Teddy, Slavenka, and Maggie and Mitch, Penny thanks you for the lovely praise! We went to a "clean" park yesterday, so the beauty would last for at least one day. But next time we get down to that creek, it'll be goodbye aristocratic look.

I came home from a week away only to find a strange dog there! What have you done with Penny?

parlance said...

Mary, I merely enabled her true beauty to shine through!

Amber-Mae and Sally Forth, Penny's rolled in lots of nice smells, swum in the creek and chased lots of balls through the undergrowth since this post. To me she still looks great but she's not a beautiful princess any longer.

I noticed that the comment by 'groom matted dog' was probably an advertisement, which I usually don't publish, but I thought his site looked quite interesting, so I've published it.
