I thought it might be fun if I shared photos of three very different pets, in three very different homes, in entirely different parts of town whose families have very different lifestyles. These photos were shot today, minutes after the grooming was completed. This way you, the pet parent, can see for yourself how relaxed and happy the pets really are.
Morning with Maddie in the Heights
As soon as I walked in the door today, she asked for her belly rub! :-) Her Mom and canine sister went for a walk in the neighborhood while I groomed Maddie in the kitchen.
As you can see from these photos, Maddie LOVES her groom visit! She's a happy blur as she runs all around. She knows that she's going to get a treat and lots of extra attention. Personally, I think she enjoys showing off for her Mom.
;-) Maddie likes checking out my grooming bags and smelling her Fur-Sis to see where she went on her walk.
Afternoon with Ace in Memorial
Ace was enjoying a swim in the pool with his family and some friends when I arrived today. The pool party continued as I groomed Ace in the kitchen.
After his groom, Ace very politely took his treats and then posed pretty-as-you-please, occasionally glancing out the back doors to see what was going on @ the pool. Ace is the picture of contentment.
Evening with Scruffy in the Montrose
When I arrived today, Scruffy was sunning herself on the sofa. The family and I walked through the door @ the same time. I have no idea what everyone was doing while I was grooming her in the living room, because I never take my eyes off a cat until I am completely finished. I do know everyone was still in the house because it only took me all of 19 minutes to clip most of Scruffy's hair off.
I carried Scruffy to the sofa and put her back in the sun where I found her. I offered her some Dry Roasted Venison Liver and she accepted the treat right away. Her human sisters and brother were reading and watching T.V. Scruffy doesn't seem to mind being groomed one bit.
