Real Champions Like to be Groomed

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

I, G.K., was told that I had to go and visit a dog groomer because I was to make my acting debut in a PetSmart commercial.  I have been given baths and brush outs at home, but I had never been to a groomer before.  You might expect a little pup like me to be nervous.  However, keep in mind that I come from a champion lineage and there is no coward in champion.

I am told I need to go to the groomer as I am going to be starring in my own TV commercial!

After my bath using a gentle shampoo, they used this blower to dry my fur.

  • OK OK I'll admit that G.K. is one good looking Chow. He has such a cute face (nothing close to a Frenchie) but he is handsome.

    F & S how could he enjoy getting groomed? And the nails?? It makes my ears bend just thinking about getting my nails cut.

    Oh and what's this I hear about him doing a commercial? Were you girls asked to join G.K. for the PetSmart commercial? And tell Martha she better have a Frenchie line of clothing and not just Chow clothing. I'm not getting that warm cozy feeling about this entire PetSmart deal. I thought the two of you would be featured since you are so famous. What's up???

    Well I have to go I'm being rushed today mom has to leave she has a 9:00 tee time.

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    Well GK I’m beginning to like baths too. They make me feel so good and soft too. I won’t be telling my mommy this because she will want to bathe me more often. As for the blow drying, not on your life. That’s one thing that is a big no no for me. I don’t like to have my nails done; never did, never will. When I travel very far, I have to put on a harness made with wide strong nylon straps. It is attached to one of the seat belts in the back. In case of an accident, I won’t be thrown between the front seats into the front where the airbags are located. You can buy the harness at Petsmart.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hello Ladies & G.K.,
    You girls certainly are training little/big G.K. very well. It looks as though he was very mannerly and quite well behaved at the groomers. You are doing you job and showing him the proper social skills. I did hear Mama Martha about the Petsmart commercial yesterday in her blog and the Frenchies will be along withG.K. in the ad she said. I knew if there was a photo op that you girls would be front and center. I am sure you will be bathed and at your beautiful best also. I can hardly wait to see the commercial. Hope it will be out soon. There better be Frenchie clothes or I might boycot. Have a great day all.

  • Good morning GK: WOW! You sure look all clean and fluffy after your grooming session. Don't you just love it????? I love it when I get a bath from the PetSmart ladies. They make such a fuss over me. The only thing is, I don't get all fluffy like you do. Gosh, I wonder what I would look like. Hmmmmm... Not too crazy about getting my nails done but it has to be done as my momma says. I wonder how long it took them to dry your coat?

    My momma says she still has some older Martha Stewart magazines with your grandpa's pictures in them. Cool huh????

    It is sunny and warm today. What a great day for a walk with daddy and a nice sunbath and that is exactly what I'm gonna get too.

    Well, time for a snack and a nap. Take care. See ya later. Love, Gracyn.

  • Wow!! How cute and fluffy! I cant wait to take my Silver to Stonybrook Pet Spa.

  • GK you do your grandfather Paw Paw proud as well as upholding the Khan family lineage very well. You certainly are a big boy going to your first grooming session all by yourself. Your big sisters F & S have taught you well.

    I did see MommyMartha's tweet the other day that all three of you made your first PetSmart commercial together. She said that you were all pros but of course that's to be expected. Can't wait to see the commercial and see the line of clothing and accessories.

    @Zoe Your Mom Ann is hoping that you will learn to like grooming as well as GK does. Ha! When furballs learn to fly right? :lol:

  • Oh adorable! What a great little pooch, you too Francesca and Sharkey.

Your father, Maddox, is going to be on the cover of a magazine and you are in a commercial. Celebrity definitely runs in the fmaily. haha

  • Sonja I think you are right, furballs will fly before I enjoy getting groomed. I say let me just be a dog :)

  • Hi G.K., You are one handsome dude! I never got to actually meet your Grandfather, Paw Paw, but I felt like I knew him from seeing him on Martha's TV Show and her wonderful blog lots of times. You look so much like him I have to look at you twice to be sure it is you! You sure do look great after going to that groomer! How do you handle having your toenails trimmed so calmly? I have a terrible time letting anyone cut my nails. Could you clue me in on how you handle it so well? Hope you had fun at your Petsmart's commercial debut. Hope to see it real soon and see you on Martha's TV Show real soon, also. Say Hi to my girl friends for me! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • lol nice stuff man.
