Chance: Left at the Groomers All Day

Far Side got me up early…I know the drill.  If just she and I go someplace it is to run an early morning errand or I am headed for the Groomer.  I like the early morning errands much better than the groomer.

Georgia was waiting for me and I about wagged my tail right off when I saw her.  Far Side ordered the usual…with emphasis on hypoallergenic shampoo and no perfume.  I had to stay a little longer than normal.  It was a real busy day for the groomer.  Usually I get a little vocal and sing for them and they call for my ride. Today I had to wait a while after I was done…Far Side called and told them to give me a cold drink of water…she knows I get so very thirsty on grooming day.   They said they would…but who knew if I drank anything or not…only me and I am not telling.  Keep them guessing thinking I was thirsting to death. Class of 1965

Far Side was off taking photographs and Far Guy was at his reunion…so I was stuck at the groomer…serenading everyone.

As soon as she could slowpoke Far Side came to get me, she had a thermos cup full of cool water for me…I sure slurped that down. All that singing dries you out!  On the ride home the car thermometer said 102 F or 39 C eh.  The house was cool when we got home…we ate supper and enjoyed the cool.

Then she decided she had to take my photograph.

Chance to the groomer

I look tired, I am tired, going to the groomer wears me out…but I am clean and ever so handsome. At least that is what she who made me wait a long time for my ride said.

  1. Yes, Chance, I am sure you are one of the best singers they ever have occasion to hear at the groomers. Glad to see you looking all spiff and beautiful. I mean handsome. :-)

  2. Chance, you look fluffy and clean. I bet you smell good too. What is it about getting groomed that makes doggies so thirsty? Eli jumps out of the car and drinks all the water in the bird bath as soon as we get home. Maybe I should carry a thermos like Far Side, does.

  3. Very handsome indeed. I always wondered what goes on in the dog's mind at the groomer. My dogs are always exhausted when they get back from the groomer.

  9. Chance, you're looking mighty good. Please tell Far Side to post a few more photos of your supreme handsomeness. It's been awhile since you were featured in a post. I was beginning to go through withdrawal from not seeing my favorite furry friend. (Tell her I love all her other posts too!)

Looking good Chance yes Miggs sings for her groomer to I guess it must be the hound she has in her and she misses me as I do her lol ! Thanks for sharing , Have a good snooze now after your busy day !

  12. Hah! I know that feeling. My Mrs. Owner takes me for dethatching twice a year. I get nervous - and pant a lot. The groomer guy I visit doesn't put us in cages, so I at least get to visit with other dogs. You look clean and fluffy. When are you gonna roll in something really lovely?!
