Were we consulted?
Of course not.
So Mom ordered a whole bunch of grooming stuff, and was all excited to get started, as we were getting a bit wooly. Wooly? Us? Just because we want the air conditioning on when it's 40 degrees out does NOT mean we are hot and wooly...
You be the judge.
|Not wooly. Just preparing for winter. If it ever gets here.|
First, she and Dad set up the grooming table.
|Really? You can NOT be serious!|
Abby was a wee bit less thrilled about this prospect, and Dad suggested that this whole grooming thing might be a two-person project.

Given that Abby was Not Thrilled about the whole home grooming thing, it was probably a good thing that Dad stepped in. However, grooming is very taxing on his back and by the time Abby declared herself done, both seemed a little frazzled.
|Non-plussed nekkid puppy and tired Dad|
However, being the trooper that he is, Dad continued on so I wouldn't be left alone with Mom and the clippers.
|Note Mom's look of determined concentration and my look of "I'm SO over this."|
My head really isn't that big, BTW - it was just the angle of the camera.
When it was all said and done, Abby and I both survived the experience.
|You're done now, right?!?|
After both of us, Mom was a little too 'worn out' to trim our ears and top knots.
I would like to state for the record that I DO NOT LIKE clippers around my feet. And I'll do just about anything to avoid them. Mom tried the 'lift the opposite foot so Fi has to stand still on the foot I'm trying to clip' move, and lemme tell ya, I had to reveal my secret powers of levitation more than once. Which may or may not have resulted in me having 'Yeti toes' (as Mom calls them). So my toes are a wee bit hairy. If winter ever comes, I'm going to want warm tootsies!
At least I was not as bad as Abby, who didn't like her toes being clippered OR having clippers near her face. Dad attempted to use the scissors on Abby's face, and well, it'll grow out, right?!?
|You might have to biggify to see the 'layers' on her snooter.|
We have suggested to Mom, however, that maybe she shouldn't rush to quit her day job! Heehee!
