Dog Day Afternoon

To Pet Smart today (the place to go to spend too much money get supplies for the kittens and the canary and a toy for the doggies. It's fun to see all the little dogs getting their "hair done" in the grooming parlor.

Well, not quite like the above photo or the photo below:

And definitely NOT like this next photo:

Oof, this poor dog gives me the creeps

But there are many happy dogs and their owners after a day at the groomers. Our Gwennie gets a nice bath and trim; she has a serious undercoat problem.

Gwennie after an "extreme" grooming (but with a very fluffy tail)

So a lot of errands done today and now for the dreaded house work...more like house shoveling! Ack!!

Enjoy the beautiful weather, if you are getting beautiful weather, because we sure are.

Not much longer until the Autumn Equinox!!!!

I can't understand what's wrong with people that color their dogs fur like that third picture. The poor dog looks absurd :-) :-) :-)

But Gwennie looks so nice! It mjst be soo nice for her to get rid of all that hair if she has undercoat problems.

Have a great day!

Your choice of comedic animal photos are hysterical Robin. I got a good laugh! He He He

I just got home from running too and am pooped! Going to lay down for a bit and recoup.

You can come and clean my 'Ack' if'n you want? :) I'd let you too! I know, no shame...

Well, have fun Dear Heart! Here's to Godspeed on the cleaning!

(((Big Hugs)))

Oh these pictures are too funny, thanks for sharing. Picture number 3 IS creepy...were they trying to make their poodle into a rooster? Wouldn't that be a pooster?

I'm not keen on that overdone poodle either! I can't believe the Equinox is almost upon us, it's still very warm and sunny here in the UK but I do feel a change in the air.

Awwww poor Gwennie! She does look adorable, but I think she doesn't feel that way! I love her tail! We are having a big garage sale soon! That's where our house shoveling went too! LOL! Hugs my friend ;o)
