There is no school at Julia's school this week so she came to work with her Mom on Monday and she stayed with us ALL WEEK. Well, there wasn't too much going on at work so Mom decided to teach her how to groom us poodles.
I guess I am special cuz I got to wait until today when she was all trained, BOL!! It was okay, but she bathed us first and since Tonya was bathing the "real" clients, we had to get bathed in that big, utility sink. I swear, I think I am going right down that big drain when I get bathed in there!!!
Of course she can't use that super duper force dryer in the utility sink so I thought I was in luck this morning. Would you believe Mom offered Julia her table so she could dry me on that. Of course, there was a force dryer hanging right there, so....
Next, she shaved down my face. She decided that she likes my mousietache so she had Mom draw RIGHT ON MY FACE with a marker so she would know where to cut and what to leave. After the face came the feet and Julia discovered I do not like my feet shaved, BOL! Then, Mom cut my nails. (whew, I WAS worried about Julia doing that!!!)
Next, she cut down my body, trimmed me all up with the scissors and Mom put a line on my topknot for her to follow, too.
Finally, she PAINTED my nails, put a scarf on me, and took some photos.
Mom was amazed at how good she did. Riley (yesterday) was the only one who had a few problems. First of all, a scary one for Riley...you see, he still has those things between his back legs and he was very worried Julia wouldn't see them. Ahh, Riley, I'm surprised you said that, I would have thought you would think yours were super big, or something, hehehe!
Anyway, Riley didn't get neutered, BOL, but there was an issue when Julia forgot to check what blade was on her clipper BEFORE she started down the middle of his back. Who knew Mom had used that clipper and took off the long blade and put a short, short blade on it!!! Mom said two things...first, at least he wasn't a paying client and second, she knows from experience that is how you learn to check the blade EVERY TIME you start in a new area!
Julia took photos of all of us AFTER our groom but Mom forgot and left the camera at work. She said she would put them on our pages tomorrow, if she remembers.
Mom said Julia really shocked her by doing a really super good job on each one of us!! She said we all look pretty professionally groomed and she will give Julia a job when she gets older!!!
I dunno, it was the very first time ANYONE different groomed me and, since I can't see myself cuz the mirrors are too high, I will reserve judgment. Mom said once Tonya groomed Toto while she was away and she was shocked when she saw him, too, but not the same kind of shocked as she was when Julia did us. Now she locks up the clippers when she leaves, BOL. At least hair grows back, but it sure took a L O N G T I M E for poor Toto!!!
