A trip to the groomer

At first it was a little bit scary when we got to the groomer and I had to growl. Once mommy turned around to leave though, everything was fine and I let the groomer pick me up. Now I feel nice and light with my new, short fur.

Ah the car ride-magical, joyous, the rush of not knowing the end destination. Yes car rides are amazing, but for me they come with a price; The dreaded safety harness. Each time I hop in the car, I am fitted with this contraption and then shackled. I cannot run freely from window to window. I am forced into a down position, and there I remain for the ride's duration. Oh, but today-today my fleas, for an instant I tasted freedom. Moments after being strapped in, I managed to slip out a paw, then another. It was as if the harness just fell right off of me. I stood, I stretched my legs, and with tennis ball in mouth I rose above the bottom of the window. My human realized what had happened, yet could do nothing but continue to drive. I spent an entire car ride free to move about in the back seat. Who knows when, or if, this will ever happen again; so I will keep this car ride in my heart always. Today may have been a small step for me, but I know it was a giant leap for car safety harnessed dogs everywhere.

Yours truly,
