Sometimes there are noseventures and sometimes there are quieter days that are just as good. This was one of those. First, my bump went down almost all the way. Alpha Mom says she can see a teeny scab and it looks like it was a bug bite. That's kind of funny, because if it was, it probably was the petting that made it get so big, just like Mayzie said in a comment on the post below. So that was good. Then Alpha Mom and I went to the groomer for my bath. Remember when I said that the jury was still out on the new owner?. No more. They are just pawsome. I don't want to disparage the old owners. They were very nice, but these ladies just totally get me. I like them so much that sometimes when the bath lady is washing me I just have to put my front paws up on the side of the tub and give her kisses. And she kisses me back! Now that's a meeting of the minds if you ask me. Of course, these little visits would be even nicer if I could stay dry, but it's kind of worth it. Plus there's the excellent receptionist.
This is where I go. It's Head to Tail Dog Grooming in Lake Ronkonkoma, NY. I'm writing all that out because if anyone happened to be searching for a dog groomer in the area and found it here I'd want them to know all about it. That's because I hope they do very well and keep the business forever. If I must be bathed, I want them to be the ones to do it.
This is Baily, the receptionist at Head to Tail. She's great at her job and make everyone feel welcome and at ease. And of course, she'a beautiful blonde, which the males probably like a lot.
This close-up doesn't really do her justice, but I just wanted you to see what a nice face she has. Don't you think that getting a Golden Retriever to be the receptionist was genius. I mean, who can do it better? No one, that's who.
Now the thing is that these grooming sessions run right through my morning nap, so I'm forced to double up in the afternoon and didn't much notice the comings and goings for the next few hours. In fact when Blog Mom came in from the supermarket she thought I might be dead. I wasn't. Not even close. But she was a little freaked. Once I woke up and cleared my head we went out in the back for a most impawtant photo shoot. It was for Red Bandana Day at the Portugese Water Dog Blog. The photos for that came out great if I do say so myself. We'll probably put one of them up on June 10th, because that's the day. After the successful photo shoot we all hung out in the back yard together for a while, which is always nice.
My humans talked to Sambuca's Mom while I talked to Sambuca after I got some squirrel chasing out of the way.
It was pretty warm out there, though and after a while I called my humans to come in the house. They're very good at recall and came as soon as I called. Then, to top off a lovely, family kind of day, we had hamburgers for dinner. I hope whatever you're doing this weekend it's been as nice as my absolutely ordinary, nothing special Saturday was.
