The Grooming

Hello Friends!
Over the weekend I was a very busy pup!
We got up early and The Owners starting getting ready to go somewhere.
Just before we were ready to leave Owner Boy went out to let Gunner and Chip in from the dog kennel. Owner Girl held the door open and Gunner ran right from the kennel to the house like a good dog. Then Owner Girl waited for Owner Boy to put Chip on the leash and bring her in when to her surprise, he let her go thinking she would run in the house like Gunner! BIG MISTAKE! Chip took a b-line for the neighbors' and The Owners had to find her and bring her back to the house! Once Chip was safely inside, The Owners and I got in the car and headed out on a great adventure! Owner Girl was kinda upset and kept saying we were late for my grooming appointment. I didn't know what that meant but I was pretty happy to be going along.
Then we got to my favorite pet store and instead of taking me to the bone or treat aisle like I was hoping, they took me right into the place where they cut my nails.
See how scared I look? I can't believe The meanie Owners brought me there!

They waited outside while I got a bath, a grooming and my nails done.

They walked around a little and saw these pups that were up for adoption!

They were very cute and sweet but didn't want to look at the camera.
After we were all done at the pet store, we headed out in search of a dog friendly place to eat lunch. We found a little burger place with a patio and Owner Boy went in and ordered the food while me and Owner Girl found a table.

The Owners had some yummy smelling food but I didn't get any cuz Owner Girl brought my stoopid plain dog food. It didn't stop me from trying out the face though!

"Please can I just have one french fry? PLEASE!"

The face worked it's magic and I got a yummy french fry! BOL!

After lunch we hoped back in the car and went to a really beautiful place where I got to run around! Stop back tomorrow to see where we went and later in the week we will show off my official before and after pics from my grooming!

Oh Tibby, isn't grooming the worst? My momma says I act so traumatized, she can't stay in there with me. She walks around the store and tries to pretend I am not in there being tortured! How rude, huh?

Can't wait to hear more about your weekend!

Congratulations on getting through the grooming! I'd say you earned more than one french fry for a treat buddy.

Hi Tibby,

I have never been to a groomer. Which is a really good thing cause I dislike strangers putting their hands on me. Only one french fry? That doesn't sound like a very fair trade to me! BOL

Wags & wiggles,

Lucky you! We don't have any places like that in this country... what a pity!

Hi Tibby - great sad face, no wonder you got a fry, he he he! Good for you. We love the groomers - we're a bit worried we might be turning into thespian 'lovies'....! Oh - what the heck, we get spoiled rotten and told we're handsome so we figure - what's NOT to like - he he! Tail wags - JD and Max.

Dearest Tibby,
You look beautiful after your grooming and your owner's take great pictures of you! They always look professional. I also love that you are small enough to take to restaurants. I can't imagine what people would say if I showed up with Africa!

Hi, Tibby!
You had an spa day!
I love baths but I don't like too much when my Vet cuts my nails!
Kisses and hugs

Whew, glad the Owners were able to get Chip back safely. We don't like going to the groomers either, but French Fries might make it a bit more tolerable.
