Happy Weekend Evfurry Buddy! This has been a rough day for me and my Mom. She decided this was the day she was going to groom me, coat, feets and get rid of mats! I said, no, please, you are not good at this and my coat is just fine. She said sure its fine to you, you shed all over and I am the one who has to vaccum everyday, twice a day sometimes.
She starts out pretty good, she cuts a couple of hot dogs in round things, and puts them in a bowl. Then she starts brushing me, and when I can't handle it anymore, she gives me a couple of the wiener pieces and lets me go sit for a while. Then she calls me back and starts on my feeties, she starts cutting nails and I jerk away and she cuts the quick!!! Ow, ow, ow! It hurts and bleeds. I give her a piece of my mind and she lets me go lick it for a while. That was my second front foot so she just leaves me alone and starts brushing my butt area, which I really hate! But she says we have to do it. So its the same song and dance as above, she brushes, I get mad and move, and she gives me some wienies and I come back and let her go again.
She winds up with a plastic grocery sack full of my hair and toe nails, and still she won't quit. She says there is no point in quitting until the wienies are gone!
There has to be a better way than this! I know you will say she should take me to a professional groomer, but, uh, I got kicked out of one and she won't take me back. So on we go with our battle!
Do any of you get on with your pawrents like this? I love my Mom except on that one day she hauls out her grooming tools. Then I would like to run away from home! We would both like some good advice about this.
Its nice and cool here today with sunshine and blue skies. The trees should be getting very pretty very soon.
Ali Z (Zkhat) says hello to her sweetie Tober the Library Cat and I send hellos to my very special friend Tsar of the Portie Pack.
Good wishes to all of you and happy autumn.
Stella, Mom and Zkhat
