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.
