It really isn’t fair that I dissed Sadie’s bad base-of-the-tail grooming yesterday. She DID win Best in Show at Westminster after all. (Scotties Rule!) And, really, it isn’t a grooming show. Lord knows I’d win WORST in Show for grooming if I were in front of judge let me tell you.
I haven’t been groomed since before Christmas. That’s LAST YEAR folks. Now, I’ve been brushed a time or two. And that’s about it.
All this snow just makes it terribly difficult to keep me nice and neat. The way I like it. But the snow is slowly shrinking away. And I’M GETTING A HAIRCUT ON SATURDAY.
Until then, I think I’ll just sleep. So nobody will see me.
What You Learned Today:
- We Scotties don’t get our characteristic looks by accident you know. It takes work. By a skilled professional. (Not like the groomer who made those Bush Scotties look like big-eared, fat-faced Schnauzers! Don’t get me wrong – I love a Schnauzer.) It also takes good breeding, but don’t tell PETA. Whew! Don’t they have better things to do? Like finding homes for shelter dogs??? Let ’em eat bacon I say!
- When we’re groomed properly, it’s almost as if we don’t shed. It’s all that darned undercoat that’s the problem. For me anyway. Remember: I get hand stripped.
- When I go to the beauty parlor, I’m a new man. Just wait. You’ll see.
