Visitors of the Furry Kind

I've been doing a lot of grooming this summer, of Addie and of other dogs. And of course, Addie always gets to "play" with the dogs that come over to get a haircut.

First was Zoe, the cute little apricot Toy Poodle. She's growing out really well and wasn't matted at all. She tolerates Addie, but doesn't really play with her. So it's more of a lesson in manners when Zoe visits. Zoe also got aqua blue toenails this time around. ; )

The other dog I groomed was my friend's 5 or 6 month old Cockapoo puppy (that's Cocker Spaniel x Poodle mix..) named Clara. She is absolutely adorable. She does pretty well for grooming, though being young she gets tired easily and wants to lie down on the table all the time. So these pics aren't the best. But she's cute. I don't have any pics of Addie and Clara together, but they actually played really well together, despite their size differences! It was fun for both of them.

You've done a great job on both dogs...they look like plush stuffed toys!

Oh my DOG! They all look super cute! Like little fluff balls!

What a cute puppy. I wish you lived close by. I have ten that all need trimming and I'm going to try it myself, so they'll probably look awful till it grows out again.

Thanks guys, I've had fun grooming these two and their owners take pretty good care of them so I get to make them look cute.

@ Mollie and Bobo - tell your mom good luck! It's a lot of fun, but it's a lot of hard work too!

@ Sue - what kind of equipment do you have?

Oh, I have just abut one of everything. It's hard getting some brushes and clippers through the curls, but we're working on it.
