Hamish Gets Groomed

Over the weekend I was a teeny bit stressed because I  had to leave my dog, for the first time ever with people he didn’t know. He did great with them of course because he’s confident and secure- me, not so much.

I’d decided to take him in for his first visit to the Dog Groomer because, let’s face it a hose and oatmeal doggie shampoo and a quick brush when he runs through spider webs or goes crazy at the dog park and rolls around is better then nothing, right?

Well, I think it is but it’s not exactly thorough and my dog is awesome and deserves better from me

I’d found a great Vet Clinic and because Hamish Macbeth was so fond of the staff I decided to pull the trigger and get him groomed there.

Here are the results.


Homeschooled and home groomed BOL.

I used the same camera for both all of the pictures- Hamish’s fur really IS that bright and shiny and since he had his ears cleaned he’s been holding then up more. Plus his pointy raptor nails are gone.

I loved the bandana they put on him, but Hamish’s signature color is pink so I’ll ask if he can get one on his next visit.

So Hamish will now be visiting his Groomer every eight weeks and before special occasions.-

From the smile on his face, I have the feeling he’s looking forward to it too!


Trees- they’ve had enough of  getting carved up and chopped down and disrespected.

At least, that’s what it looked like to me when I ran into these trees a few months ago.

I think they have plans.

I have cracked open a lot of eggs in my time  but I have never cracked one open and had two yolks plop out.

I know that there are lots of stories about double yolkers that involve death, fertility and big hens but that aside it is pretty cool to have something out of the ordinary turn up in your kitchen while  you’re waiting for you toast to pop up.
