We have our St. John's Therapy Dog evaluation on Monday and the dogs have to look clean & well groomed. I always groom Saba myself but he's been blowing his coat like crazy lately, so I thought, why not... first time for everything. Took him to a doggy spa and he got washed, brushed and his nails got clipped. The ladies there probably thought I was a bit neurotic as I decided to sit and wait for him for the full hour and a half... most people leave and they call them when dogs are ready for pick up. But not me... hell, I don't know these ladies so I stayed and everytime I heard a dog whimper I would ask "is that mine??" Good thing they didn't throw me out! They seemed very patient (with me!). But we both survived his first professional grooming. I was told he was very good, except at the end ... he ran to a corner and would not move LOL.. that's my boy Guess he's had enough by then.
Of course first thing after on a walk he had to roll in dirty grass...
Now he's enjoying his bully stick for being a good sport.
Glad both of you had a good experience at the spa. Good luck with the evaluation.
Lucky Saba. That is pretty cool. A day at the spa.
Wish I was Saba!
