Wow! That's what grooming is! I had no clue. I went to Posh Paws Pet Spa and met Liana & Ashley. They are so nice!
Because I have a bandage on my leg they had to use a dry shampoo on me so I wouldn't get it wet. After I was all clean, they started to slowly clip my hair. I hadn't been groomed in a long time (if ever) and my coat was filled with mats. They would have been too painful to brush out, so Liana & Ashley slowly and carefully introduced me to the clippers. I had to get clipped right down to the skin because my coat was so matted. I was scared and a little unsure of what was goiung on, but the ladies were very patient with me, gave me time and a couple of little rests along the way.
Slowly bit by bit, my inner poodle began to emerge & I actually felt really good. Momma was right, I would feel better :)
Momma came to pick me up and she seems really happy to see me. I was happy to see her too, but I was chilly after losing all my hair. She wrapped me up in her coat & took me to the car. Oh, it was so warm in there...she had the heat on extra for me cause she knew I would be cold.
As a treat for being so good, we went to Wiskers & Wags (a local pet store). Momma bought me my very own collar & matching leash, hot pink. The staff there made a big fuss about me & they seemed to really like me too! I'm making so many new friends everywhere I go.
When I got home Momma put a sweater on me to help keep me warm & she even wrapped a heating pad in a towel and put it on my bed for me. I think she loves me. The big white giant (Cracker) seemed happy to see me & sniffed me all over. He seemed to know where I was and I could sense from him, this grooming thing was perfectly normal.
I can certainly tell you, I feel alot better. My skin isn't itchy, my hair (or what is left of it) is neatly combed and out of my eyes.
