in the corner at the Groomer's. Don't get me wrong--Samantha is a terrific groomer. For years she's been winning awards at national grooming competitions (but I REALLY don't get the award she won for turning a Standard Poodle into a Winnie the Pooh look-alike, complete with orange and red dye). ?????
I'm strictly a wash-and-wear kind of guy. Dixie FooFoo is the one who needs a regular wash and trim or her back end and tail fur grows WILD!!!!! This whole bathing/blow drying/grooming thing is something I'd rather skip. Anyway, after I was finished and down off of the table, I went and laid down in the corner of the shop. Dixie came over and kept me company. Samantha was worried because Dixie has never acted like that before (she's usually the social butterfly, prancing around, visiting all the dogs). The Mom explained to Sam that Dixie is my "security blanket" (whatever that is).
Personally, I think the Mom needs to rethink this whole "grooming" thing for me...
Burt, grooming is tough on me too. All that touching and poking and prodding in weird places....yuck! When I am done, I go hang out in the corner too. Now, they call mom when I am 20 minutes from being done. Mom heads over and when I am all done, mom is there waiting and she ooohs and ahhhs over how (obviously) so handsome with my new do! Maybe your mom could do that too.
I understand Burt.. we dont go to the groomers.. Flicka is Mr Shortcoat... I am like Dixie... miles of it... but Mum knows I wouldnt do great at the groomers.. so its a brush out and wipe down when needed at home.
Its good Dixie is there to help you... you are doing SO well.
Dixie is so schweet to keep you company and make you feel better after all that pokin' and proddin'! :o) Hang in there, pal! Maybe it will get better with time?
