Yesterday I groomed this beautiful collie, Pluto. He is so quiet and respectful. Some of my combing, brushing and trimming would not have been that comfortable for Pluto, though I try to be very gentle. It took a long time to suds and condition his coat thoroughly, by which time my small tank was out of hot water, but the dog stood patiently. He is unfazed by both blow dryers (the high velocity dryer can unnerve some doggy guests), the rest of the spa treatment, and even the visits by the cats.
That relatively challenging job took several hours and I wish I could say that it took my mind off my “troubles”. It didn’t, even though the work was satisfying.
Today is a gorgeous day. Though there was frost last night, the temperature is rising quickly. The sun is shining, and I hope my mind will feel more rested soon. I will have a couple of smaller doggy projects today, and I hope I can get back to garden/lawn cleanup too.
I’m getting behind with my posts and pictures!
