Sam found this photo to express his thoughts on the whole grooming process. How does your ‘baby’ deal with the groomer? Hope you had a super weekend. Spring has arrived again in the 303…let’s hope it stays for a while this time.
Live, love, bark! <3

hahaha thanks for the smile
Love it!! Dakota actually doesn’t mind being groomed, he’s quite vain 😉 I always laugh when he comes home and I tell him he smells like a French Whore. 🙂 DakotasDen
Haha…makes you wonder what they think a French whore smells like! 😉
We get it every 3 weeks so we’re pretty much used to it.
Murphy & Stanley
No haircuts in our house, but Eko and Penny walk to the tub like condemned men walking to the gallows. They really know how to lay on the guilt.
Funny how every bathtub turns into a Bridge of Sighs, isn’t it? 😉
It’s even worse for birds. There are some (not with this bird) who get their feathers clipped so they can’t fly. That’s like tying all four paws together of a greyhound.
Oooh, ouch-that’s not cool, Kismet.
Aaww Sam buddy – I feel you. I really do. I don’t go to the groomers. Mom gives me baths here at the Hotel Thompson. But that Houdini here. Let me tell you – that dog *loves* his spa day. He gets five women to swoon all over him, bubble baths, massages and did I mention the love, the oohhs and the aawws and the cuddles from being carried everywhere. Now that dog has the life I’m telling you. XOXO – Bacon
It always helps to have a good attitude about all that fussing! Good for Hou-man. ღ
Ray has never been to a groomer. He gets brushed and has his nails ground regularly, neither of which does he like… but he tolerates the process as long as there is a constant supply of carrot and celery pieces!
I can just picture Ray begging for treats. Good dog, Ray! 🙂
I don’t take Tippy to the groomer either. She really only needs a good bath every once in a while, which I give her. I did have the vet trim her nails the last time we were there. She was NOT pleased with that procedure at all.
They give you that “how could you look” don’t they?
With her, it’s more like, “Don’t you dare touch my toes!” look and growl. She’ll let me hold her paws, but she did NOT like having her nails clipped.
I ALWAYS let the groomers do it; I’m too scared to try it myself. Mostly I just run Sam on sidewalks to keep them filed down. 😉
She does run on concrete and asphalt, so they really don’t get too long. I just thought it was funny because she could have cared less about anything else they did to her, including getting a stool sample, but the toes! Oh my!
Sam’s feet & toes are his Achilles Heel but he’s never growled at me, just plays a high step dance.
My Poodles love their days with the groomer. My dogs think it is the worst punishment ever.
Heh, heh. Wonder why is that?
that’s how we look at the vets.
The groomers left Cole shell shocked so I learned how to do it myself. DH bathes him, and I become Edward Scissorhands.
Now THAT’S an image! Does Cole run when you put on black lipstick?
I only go to the groomer to get my nails cut. They always tell Mom I’m the happiest dog they see all day. Sometimes it’s hard for them to work because of all the tail wagging and kissing. Once I kissed the glasses right off the man’s face! Mom gives me a bath in the tub at home. That’s a different story.
Love and licks,
Agreed…baths are a separate kind of torture, Cupcake. 🙂
with the groomer (hair,nails and all the stuff) no problem at all,my wife does that at home,total relax 🙂
When I do it in between the pro jobs, he’s tolerant but I know he doesn’t like it and tends to give me that tortured look so I’ll feel sorry for him.
I agree Sam… stay on the lap of your mom till they close their grooming-crib :O)
The groomer loves Sam but he wraps his paws around my waist as if I’d sold him into slavery or something. Sooo dramatic that one!
I don’t go to a groomer. I have
To contend with Jen’s mediocre skills. At least you don’t have to suffer THAT torture!
Every other month I do ‘clean up work’ (feet, face, tail). He’s mostly patient but you’d think he’d been sold to gypsies or something.
Good one Sam, good one!!
Thanks, Edgar! It’s ‘impawtant’ to start the week out with a smile. 😉
