I feel pretty, oh so pretty.......
Samson went to the groomers Thursday; he was there for 3 hours and 45 minutes. It usually takes Jennifer, the groomer, 2 1/2 hours. I think she was training people and it seemed like it took a long time to dry him off.
He had a white rinse applied and he now smells better than a dog really should smell. He had a facial done, whatever that is, his fur trimmed way back on his legs, his feet (it's amazing how furry his feet, I mean his paws, are), his undercoat trimmed way back and his tummy completely shaved. He already had a pedicure at the vet the week before.
Before he leaves they tie a bandanna around his neck and give me a packet with some dog biscuits. It's a really lovely place and not expensive at all.
I wanted to capture and share his prettiness, as it will not last long. What is lasting, however, is what an absolutely good and patient dog he is. He suffered through the bath, the blowdry, and all the rest with equanimity and a smile.
Me: Love you my sweet boy.
Samson: I know, I just wish you'd stop kissing me so much.
