Bath Time For The Puppies

Some day I'll have normal dogs that won't like getting a bath.

I've been asked by the local P.D. to bring my dogs in tomorrow for a photo op for them. They've taken over animal control duties from another town.

Since we were the first ones to actually go in and renew their licenses they're pretty excited about it. Talking with them while they were implementing all the information into their comps. I gave them an idea to open up another phone line that's just for animal control purposes. Yep scored points there. They want to be able to match up a pics with tags #'s and Home Again chips.

Now getting back to the bath. Trust me I'm dreading it.
My GR is heavier than I am. Foo-Foo is a little on the porky side herself. But at least I can pick her up.

Why is it that every time I give them a bath they fall asleep?
I swear if I wasn't holding onto their collars they would drown.

Nothing is never ever normal around here.

I'm going to kick myself when you tell me but what is a GR?

Tried to look it up with no luck but found this - A German Sheeppoodle.

Don't you think the GSD part of him looks embarrassed?

Her former foster mum gave me some of the cat litter she's used to and some food and I'd already asked for details and bought some in. She came with her own cushion for her bed so it's not been too much of a change.

Hopefully she'll come round.
mc, let me add my voice to the others in assuring you that your kitty's avoidance response to her new home environment is quite common and not harmful to her health. i did not see bb, the kitty i adopted on march 6,until may 2nd. for an entire TWO MONTHS, he stayed totally out of sight, concealed in a 'hidey hole' behind the cabinets in the kichen, or under the bed in the spare room. at first i wasn't overly concerned, thinking he would come around in a few days. in the beginning, days went by that he didn't eat or disturb his kitty litter. 10 days in, i was ready to give up. bb was obviously not happy, and only came out nocturnally on occasion for a bit of dry food, and to tear up the linoleum in front of his hidey hole in the kitchen. the only reason i didn't return bb to the shelter that first month was that i wasn't able to flush him out from his hiding place. then, two or three times, i caught him by surprise, at his food bowl, but all i ever saw was this blurry streak of orange and a fluffy tail as he sped past me to his other refuge. honest-to-god i was looking on ebay for a nanny cam (well, kitty cam, actually) to buy, thinking it might be the only way i'd ever get to lay eyes on this cat of mine! then, one fine day in may, at about 3:20 ayem, bb came sashaying into my bedroom, pretty as you please, and introduced himself, tail sticking straight up in the air like a fat fluffy flag pole. he jumped up on my bed, as if he belonged there, and proceeded to love on me up and down and all over, eager to be stroked and scratched, nudging against me, kneading and purring, getting acquainted, and making up for all that lost time. we occupied ourselve in that fashion for better than two hours that morning, and that was the beginning of our strange but beautiful relationship, almost one year ago....mad cook, your kitty is already showing signs of interest and acceptance around you. she will come around, but she is a cat, so it will have to be on her terms. but don't worry, and once she decides you can be trusted, she will make it all worth your time and trouble with her adorable soft kitty ways and wiles....

LOL..

GR, is my Golden Retriever
Foo- Foo is a Poodle mix.

I'll take the Sheepdoodle dog home. What a cutie! Looks very huggable.

We decided at the last minute not to take the dogs in. My GR had just gone to the vet that morning to have a procedure done. He was too tired and sore from that long trip to the vet. He has the beginnings of hip displacia. Foo-Foo is completely blind. She would have been too spooked without him to go. He leads her around when she gets lost in the back yard, comforts her when she gets scared.

So it was best for them not to do it.Let someone else be the first. They might have younger dogs.

Hello, fellow DC cats (and kittens)

After some very hard work involving sleeping under the sofa for hours at a time I now have the servant well trained. I curled up in her lap tonight for the first time and made her stroke me and tell me how beautiful I am. I've also told her that my name is "Dinner" and she must call me by it at least 3 times a day.

However, I shall have to do something about that pesky printer thing as she set it off and it scared the daylights out of me.

Purrs and regards

Rosie The Tux.

Well, now that you have MC well trained, make sure she stays that way. Remember if you give her an inch, she will........ Well you know the rest.

And BTY she has another pet. It's name is Tetley. It's a horse. But you needn't worry yourself about that one. It is not allowed in the house and lives down the lane. Further than you would want to wander. Although I hear they have some tasty mice there. Maybe if you ask her nice, she will bring one or two home for you. So if she comes in the house smelling rather strange, it is just that horsey smell. Don't fret. She will take a shower sooner or later.

Hi Rosie,

The printer scared me too at first but it won't hurt you and it's fun to try to catch the paper as it goes in and when it comes out. You do have to watch out for expanding wet paper towels though cause they might get you! The servants use them to clean up messes so beware.

The Rersult of Teddy's Dastardly Deed

The second one is the mother, a Yorkie. Teddy is a Maltese. The last picture is Teddy before he went for his spring haircut this morning. The daughter was born a very dark brown. Her legs are long and spindly and she stands taller than Teddy, her father.
