It's been one of 'those' weeks.
You know the kind where you have plenty of fodder for posts, lots of photos to share
and no time or inclination to craft a decent post.
It is quite possible that some of that lack of inclination may have something to do with the fact that the digital equivalent of mercury has been registering over 30C all week [ that's mid 80s and above, Fahrenheit ] and right now it's sitting on 40.1C
... and for you on the 'heading into winter' side of the planet, that translates as 104F
[ and I still don't have functioning A/C ]
All of which makes me very glad that the date for Bear's summer haircut had finally arrived.
There are a lot of good reasons to use a groomer ... but in the bush in summer there are 2 main reasons when one owns a long haired dog.
The obvious one has to do with comfort in the heat ... but the more important reason are the ever present grass seeds.
They are a huge problem and can work their way in between toes, inside ears and cause all manner of nasty results
So this was Bear at 11am and before he saw the lead and the car keys, put two and two together and hid under my bed.
is Bear at 1pmand yes I am sure that I got the right dog back !
and thanks to my blogging-friend Groomer Angie in Tennessee who gave me some really great tips on how to find the right dog groomer
