Brody Goes to the Groomer

Well, the last few days have been pretty busy here. I think I’ve finally responded to the comments I’ve received, but we are long overdue for a new post!

Well, I’ve been busy. The dogs have been slacking a bit.

Then poor Lana was stuck at home while Brody and I went to the groomers.

This was quite the experience.

Brody the Australian Shepherd | Dream Big, Bark LoudlyI was never blessed with a mental map. I was, however, burdened with driving anxiety. It’s not as bad as it used to be, but it’s still not fun. I got very lost, then I got very stressed, then my stress rubbed off on Brody until he grew so anxious he crapped in my back seat. So, half an hour late and smelling very, very bad (bless the groomers’ hearts), Brody and I arrived. I left him looking very betrayed, and killed some time at Target. (I got the dogs some Nylabones, but they don’t know yet!)

When I came back, the wonderful groomer finished and took him off the table. We drove home (he insisted on crawling in the front seat, I wonder why), stopped at Dunkin Donuts for a much needed pick me up, and then we showed Lana his pretty new haircut.

Every time he looks at me I just picture a little kid with a fresh bowl cut. Except his hair-do is far more stylish than the stereotypical “bowl cut”.

Brody, the Adoptable Aussie | Dream Big, Bark LoudlySo we will spend the rest of the day relaxing and smelling nice. Until tonight. Tonight we party!

Brody, Lana, and I hope you all have a great weekend!
