Grooming day

So I fought the traffic through town and wasn't even late when I got to the groomer. But I was having a hard time figuring out what all those cars were doing out and why were they all from out of state? Then, just as I pulled in to parking lot, it hit me. This is race week. I've only lived here 9 years but you'd think by now I'd have learned to jot down the big weekends and stay out in the country until they're over! But, being a glutton for punishment, I have grooming appointments scheduled for tomorrow AND Thursday. Maybe I'll stop at McDonald's one morning for a bacon-egg-and-cheese to reward myself for perseverance!

Here are 2 pictures of the darling Butler, the last of Emy and SHad's current litter. I took the first one while still at the groomer's because he got carsick on the way into town and I was afraid he'd be a mess if I waited until we got back home for the photo session.

Again, this boy is a smart cookie. Today was his first time on lead. He decided in no time that staying close to me was safer than trying to get away from that thing around his neck and the cord that attached us together. Butler's not ready for obedience competition, but it wouldn't take much. He's also not ready for steps... he's still having a debate with himself just getting out the kitchen door and down the ramp to the yard... just the few steps from the side porch to the ground were more than he was willing to deal with. But I'll bet by the end of the week he's bounding up and down stairs like a trooper!
