Well, we did it again; we survived another grooming.

In August a new neighbor moved in, bringing with her two dogs, a daughter, and her mobile dog grooming van. She's a wonderful person and we've spent a lot of time chatting and waiting for her Colorado dog grooming license to be finalized. Finally, it arrived early this week and we made an appointment for Roo to get the full treatment, all mere yards from home. So this afternoon I walked Dunc downstairs and across the parking lot where Jennifer was waiting for us. Duncan loves her and her two dogs, Cody, a beautiful Golden, and his son, Logan, a Golden Rotty mix. Dunc had no problem climbing right inside although he was a bit annoyed when I left his bag of treats and walked away. An hour later, though, he emerged, bright and shiny, smiling and smelling as sweet as a May morning.

He's always good to cuddle with, but now he'll be even better! At least for a few days.

As soon as Smokey left the groomer's a few days ago, he went straight outside, pooped, then kicked around some dirt. I felt like I'd wasted 30 bucks lol.

I love those few precious hours after the grooming but before the first walk post grooming. Such wonderful smells and soft snuggles! He looks great!

Our groomer lives about four doors away too. Mom usually just lets the kids give us our baths though - we usually bathe them as they bathe us. I see it as a win/win situation. Mom says that ain't the truth of it though! Enjoy your spa treatment, Duncan. We're sure you'll receive it more regularly being so convenient!

LUCKYYYYY!!! I wish I had a groomer neighbor! We are fostering 2 Goldens in addition to our girls, and a groomer neighbor would be so very welcome right about now.

How handsome does that red angel look anyway? I do love his red silky fur. You're such a good-lookin' boy, Duncan! Kisses from San Diego!

Ah! So sweet and so shiny! I think I am in need of one of those grooming sessions myself :)

Sweet hugs,
