Okay, baby Oliver got 6 hours of beauty treatment. Poodle Palace was kind enough to come to the truck to come and deliver him and neighbor kind enough to get him in and out of truck.

Smells and looks so handsome :lol: but Mia is regretting her time alone ending so soon <_<

The "spa" said the noise of the dryer scared him so, he messed everywhere; my hero :lol:

Tru,

Haha that's so funny and cute! I wish I could get someone to come to my house and give me 6 hours of beauty. Except for the messing part, I sure could use it :P

That's great that you have such nice neighbors to help you.

Lucky Doggy, Oliver!

We used to have a really sweet cocker/golder retriever mix. I would take her to the doggy salon and she would look so pretty and smell so nice.... until she would scale the fence, go to the pasture behind the house and proceed to do what some dogs do :unsure: She would feel so proud of herself and think she smelled good because the "big people" had gotten her all stinky! :lol:
Aren't dogs funny, though?!

Thanks for sharing your and Oliver's story, tru!

That's funny Susie. I had a yellow lab named Zachary. The sweetie passed two years ago. I remember a rainy stormy night and I had taken her out back to do her business. In the yard, I had a large whiskey cask planter and I was standing in front of it. Zack wanted to play and was running all about the yard. She stopped.........looked me in the eye..........and charged at me full speed (to play, of course). I kept yelling, no, no....and before you knew, she slam dunked me into the whiskey cask on my rump, feet up in the air. Hard time getting out of that position.

That's a great story, too, tru :lol:

With COPD, my hubby needs to nebulize a few times daily... Miss Muffet's palce to be... is right next to him during his 15 minute treatment. If she happens to be sleeping, I get her attention and "remind" her!

She was 9 when we adopted her... she's now 10 1/2 and she's so much fun and brings such joy to us.... AND my mom!

Another thing she does.... when I'm taking care of that newest grandson (2 1/2 mos)... she always jumps up on the chair beside us when I sit down to feed him. If he's fussing, she "lets me know", by doign her "prance-dance" (She's a toy poodle).

As I'm sure I've already mentioned... hubby, she and I are caregiving my mom, living in her basement where we've made an apartment for ourselves. The computer is near the dining table and when hubby decides it's time to eat, Miss Muffet decides it's time for ME to eat too! So, she comes over and paws at my arm until I move to the table to eat. You see, once he and I finish eating... then SHE eats....She's always done that :rolleyes:

Sorry, butcha got me started, tru!!!

Thank goodness for the animals; the love they provide. When I got Truman, I was wise the second time around. I crated him. He was such a docile laid back poochie, but I was taking no chances.

Everyday when I got home from work, Truman was laying on the living room couch. I kept questioning the boys why they were letting him out of the crate, and they kept denying it.

Well, one evening, company was coming and I felt it better to crate Truman rather than having the kids tugging at him. Out of the corner of my eye, I see Zachary mosey into the kitchen, go to the crate and with her nose, life the latch and slide it over to let him out! :lol:

I had to wind up putting a keyring lock on it so she wouldn't let him out during the day anymore.

Hey Tru,

I take Zoey to the "Beauty Parlor" once a month. I can't wash her anymore, because I have to wash her in the bathtub and I just can't get down and back up anymore. I took her to the beauty parlor Monday a weeek ago and she proceded to come straight home and go play in the mud!!!! :angry: ( we've had rain 5 out of 7 days for the last two months, our yard is saturated and they still haen't removed the drought restriction around here) We also have an inground pool with steps down into the "shallow end" and if the temperature is 60 or higher she will get into the pool and then I really have a mess!! But you know what? I wouldn't have it any other way!! :P
Peace :)
