GK Went to the Groomer

Posted by F&S

It's very important that dogs be groomed on a regular basis, to ensure that the pet is healthy and comfortable.  We Frenchies are groomed in the basement laundry room, but GK, who has thick chow fur, requires a professional to do the job.  Yesterday, GK had an appointment at Stonybrook Pet Spa in Harrison, New York.

GK, today is the day that you go to the groomer.  You haven't been for quite some time and Martha says you're overdue!

Sharkey and I will go along with you for the ride.  We have short hair and it's easy for us to get groomed right at home.

OK, Suzie, you can shut the door now.

We have arrived at the groomer and there are many interesting things to sniff around here.

What do you think, Alex?  Should we do the usual today?  I wouldn't mind starting with a nice relaxing soak in the tub.

  • ..Oh, G.K., you are a beautiful boy..if only I were younger!! must get some rest..over and out, Cora-Belle

  • Good morning everyone,
    GK, GK, GK. you look fantastic. Don't you feel so good after a bath? I do. And the girls were so happy to see you when you got back home. You are as handsome as I am. Hehehehehehehehe
    I am glad everyone had a good weekend except for a couple things. Kirby, such good news about them getting clean margins.. ZOE, what happened? Did the wild side of Zoe come out? Tell your dad if he would have left you have your way with the TP you would have been content with that and he wouldn't have a wound to contend with. Well, he may not buy it but it sounds reasonable to me. Rebel, hopefully your ducks won't be scared off by the lights. That would be a shame. Oh darn, I would like to talk a little to each of you but I was just informed that Karen needs to use the computer before she leaves for the dog shows. Wu-Tang and Sequoia are going. Wu-Tang is a champion and she is very pretty. She is a nice dark red in color like GK. sequoia is 10 months old and she has only been in one show so far so we will see how she does. But, you know what this means, I am in charge. So, all I have to say is biscuits will be flying all over the place this weekend. Hehehehehehe
    Love to all,
    Maddox

  • Hello everyone,
    I am getting ready to leave for some dog shows and I am running late but I had to take the time to comment on the blog today. GK, you look gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous. Is that the same grooming place that Paw Paw used to go to? I am very excited about getting to visit with you and Sharkey and Francesca within the next few weeks. I am going to bring Sequoia and Wu-Tang and we will have a big picture taking party. It will be fun. I can't wait.
    Glue Squad, you are a great bunch, carry on........
    Love,
    Karen

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    What a day today will be; raining again. I did enjoy those days without any rain. It was so cool and bright sun shinning. Great for taking a nap in the sun without getting too hot. My little spot is healing nicely and Daddy said that some of my fur is beginning to come back in. Now that will itch and I won’t be able to scratch it. Guess someone else will have to do that for me; any guesses? While I was at the vets, they didn’t watch me close enough. Now I have to re-grow the hair on my tail again. I managed to take about half of it out before they stopped me. Now I am on something else to keep me calmed down. Sure hope this works; the little pills are easier to take than those big ones.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hello G.K., Girls & Glue Squad Buddies,
    G.K. you look so very handsome, I must say. That groomer must be very good. I am still like our favorite song, The Tornado, when it comes to a bathe, but at least I can be brushed. Mom says I better watch out for the summer and baths outside, with no fear of shower doors breaking. I am glad also to see Francesca out and about and doing so well.

    A little Kitty told me of something special today---it is Delia's birthday. Happy Birthday dear Delia, Happy Birthday to yoooooou. Could you hear me singing? I am getting better. Mom and I are fixing Pumpkin Bread in honor of your birthday and having a PARTY---yep, and it is a snow day. A far cry from the 60 degrees they forecast. I met someone on my walk. I couldn't believe it----a parrot. Yes, the lady was with a parrot and bent over to pet me and I had to jump. He could have parrot soup, but I did good and behaved. Dad gave me an A again and Mom too.

    All you buddies I can hardly wait until you get up and post. Kirby, glad you are not itching now. Feel good pal. And Karen, good luck at the dog shows and Maddox I hope the biscuits are flying. Cora Belle, so glad to hear from you and know your birthday and e-mail. You are my idle. Abby is wearing lots of green I hear. Reminds me, Mom get me a green bandana for St. Patrick's Day. Rubys can wear green--like an emerald, right guys? I am going to enjoy the fire and hope for cocoa and cookies. Have a GEM of a day.
    Love & licks,
    Ruby

  • Good morning ladies & G.K.,
    You are one handsome dog, G.K. How long does it take you to be all dry after a bath?
    Karen, Mimi & I are so happy you are feeling better so you can go to a dog show. I can hardly wait to pics of Sequoia & Wu-Tang.
    It's sunny here today and warm air is on the way!
    Have a great day all.
    Your pal,
    Rebel

  • Aw, GK you are one handsome fella! :)

    Your coat is bright and shiny and extra fluffy!

    I would love a day at the spa!

    Rain is coming here to NH. Which means snow is a meltin'! :)

    Happy Tuesday...

  • Hello Everybody: GK you look marvellous, and I bet you smell wonderful as well. For any of us that grow either long hair (our hair never stops growing so we have to get it cut every once in a while)or have a double coat it is very important to find a good groomer who knows what the breed should look like so a Beardie doesn't end up looking like an Airdale terrier! We have had some grooming meltdowns in the past, and some of us were not so pretty! Martha is a very thick coated dog, she has a very thick soft undercoat which gets matted just looking at it! The outer coat is long and coarse, and she gets clipped really short in the warmer weather cause if she doesn't she just too hot, and always looking for either basement or the a/c! Lucy's coat is a littler finer, but still, she also gets clipped to get everything clean and tidy. And me, Riley I seem to have the finest coat of all, I went to the groomer for the first time a couple of weekends ago, and I had no problems. On our walk last weekend I found the burr patch, OMG what a mess, but you know, its wasn't such a big deal to comb them out - in Martha and/or Lucy it would have been a nightmare! Three different dogs, three different coats. Anyways, it rained like crazy yesterday, everyone was more than a bit restless and anxious to get outside, but we were soaked in a few minutes so it was mostly an indoor day. Today looks better, a little cooler, but seems to be dry (for now). Glad to hear spring bulbs are coming up somewhere - Mom has big problems keeping me out of the gardens so far ..... another learning curve for me. The dog shows sound so exciting Maddox, I'm going to be starting this Spring and I'm so looking forward to it, cause I know at heart I'm a show dog just waiting to get in the limelight! Well gotta go, love to you all, everyone be good (or bad as the situation warrants). Love devil dog Riley, and his sisters Martha and Lucy.

  • Hi F,S,&GK+ Glue Squad, I can't thank you enough to see GK again, especially going to the groomer to get even more handsome! He looked so happy to have the grooming done and he sure reminds Mom of handsome Paw Paw and his Dad, Maddox!!! You sweet girls sure do love GK and it's fun to see you hug him and make him happier, also!!! I love all 3 of you and also the Glue Squad buddies and the kitties! James Dean, Costco is a big store that sells great stuff for people and animals, too! Cora-Belle, hope you get some great rest and will love to hear from you later, again! Professor Maddox, you are the best and you take such good care of your buddies! Karen, sure hope you have fun at the latest dog show with Maddox's buddies! Kirby, so happy that you are doing better and hope your tail hair returns ASAP! Hope the rest of you buddies are doing well, also! Will check back later! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • Hi Girls, GK & Glue Squad, All of you look so cute together and F & S both of you are very supportive of GK and his day at the spa. He is so handsome and nice & fluffy. I hope I'm that fluffy after my spa day tomorrow. Kirby, so happy you received good news on your surgery results. Cora-Belle, hope you are feeling good; Maddox, being in charge is a big job but you always do a good job. Be sure to keep a biscuit or two for Wu-Tang and Sequoia. Good luck to both of them at the dog show. Ruby, you saw a parrot, that's exciting, did it talk to you? Rebel, any duck sightings today? Hi to all my friends, will try to post a little earlier tomorrow, I don't know where the time goes; oh wait, we lost an hour last weekend, right?? :( It's raining tonight, so maybe some of our snow will melt too.

    Till next time,
    Missy Chow
    xoxo
