Baby Watermelons on Sticks

Yeah....bad, bad dog owner. We pushed the limit between spa days for the girls AND have not been good about brushing. You look at them with the fur on their chests and legs and they look beautiful....you think everything is cool and then you get the call from the groomer....they are too knotted up to be properly groomed...they must be shaved. You go through regret and guilt because you did not brush them and then the realization that they will be the laughing stock of the neighborhood because they look like baby watermelons on sticks.

Seriously...what the heck? I had no idea that their legs were sticks. How in the world do they function and run and jump????? These things they call legs should just snap off at the first movement!!! AND did the groomer have to shave their chests THAT much??????? It wasn't that bad!! But now looking at the picture...you know how parrots pluck their feathers out or how chickens look plucked....yeah....my girls look plucked!

BUT on a good note....it will be Christmas before they have to be groomed again! Saving money to the embarrassment of the dogs! Always look on the bright side!

BTW....they did get extra treats tonight....we have to somehow make up for the shaving!


So one of my best friends had a baby 5 weeks ago. Got to meet him this weekend and he is super cute!!! Nickname is Squishy....this name was bestowed upon him by his aunt and I like it!
Here is Squishy right before his big boy bath...

My Dad ROCKS....he gives the best baths....hands up!!!

WOW!!! Do you see how cool my Dad is?

Oh yeah! I am cute!!!

Our house is across the street from one hole on the golf course in our neighborhood. Took the girls out tonight and one of the ginormous sprinklers was going off on the green. There are actually 5 that usually go off in the morning but this one was random. Creates a huge spray of water.....so what is a girl to do.....fully clothed with 2 schnauzers......go run through it over and over!!! It was great! The kids were running and pouncing and having a ball and so was I. We got back to the house soaking wet and it was a hoot!!!
