Oh dear. Poor Coco. She did have a lovely time with the Mucky Pups lady but she certainly came out a very different dog to how she went in. She is an absolute terror when it comes to being brushed at home, and no matter how much we try, she will not let us groom her properly. When you consider how fluffy a dog she
was is, there is was a lot of hair to brush. Her back legs had become pretty matted and there was no way the groomer could untangle them so they had to be shaved. And you can't have long fur on your back and shaved legs without becoming the laughing stock of the puppy neighbourhood so she has had a 'short back and sides'. The only things that stayed the same were her head and tail. She looks so different but we know it will grown back and from now on there WILL be daily brushing, we've had lessons from the Mucky Pups lady on how to deal with her. I suspect that many gravy bone biscuits will be consumed in the form of bribery!
I've printed off some photos from J's travels in Africa to put into another sketch and hope to do that today. I have also registered for the Big Idea Festival over at Big Picture Classes. Has anyone else registered for it? it's free so I figured I had nothing to lose but plenty to gain for signing up! I've also started sticking my Scavenger Hunt photos in their mini album with a noticeable gap where I am waiting for my friend's daughter to get married later this month. I think it's fair to say that I am using my 6 week summer holiday productively so far ;-)
