Cleaned Up

2.29.2012

Today (Monday) was a milestone in our house.

Today, our sweet pup Dani, went to the groomers for the first time.

Take a breath to steady yourself if you need to (Lord knows I had to take some this morning).

This may not sound like a big deal to most, but Dani is not like most dogs. We rescued her when she was 7 or 8 weeks old, and she is the biggest chicken in the world. She's super skittish and scared of the vacuum cleaner. I was absolutely terrified to take her to a place that I knew she would hate, however, it was way past time. Her feet were messy with long fur, her nails were way too long, etc.

My biggest concern was taking her somewhere that I'd have to leave her for hours. I knew that would not go over well with her at all, and after some research, I found a place that charged a little extra, but would allow me to wait! For peace of mind, I will pay an extra $15.

So this morning, we headed over there and after some initial shaking and sniffing, the work started and the finished product was worth it!
 Her feet and ears look soooo much better! We'll definitely go back because when it was all said and done, she is no worse for the wear and she looks so much neater!

And hopefully next time I won't be so scared myself. At least I can hope.

Omigooodness, look at that precious FACE! So sweet!

When we first got Madigan from the shelter, I didn't want to leave her anywhere, let alone with a groomer she didn't know! I still hate leaving her overnight and I worry about her constantly. Guess that's just the way it is when you love your pets! :)
