Well, this is really a non beading post. Mainly, I was just going to say...whew! I got all three dogs cut & it is still Summer. It took me two weeks to do all three, but it was finished this weekend. Arwen is the most troublesome to groom. I believe that she was some how traumatized in the kennel I got her from. She fights all the time from the minute her feet touch the grooming table. I've tried everything from natural holistic treatments to calm her down & finally I had to get tranquilizers from my Vet. I had to give her 3 mg of Valium & still she fought. It broke my heart to have to drug her, but the alternatives were exhausted. Chris still had to hold her so I could get her belly. Yes, I cut the skirt off of a Scottie. Doesn't make her any less of a Scottie, but it does make it easier for me to keep her clean. So all three are groomed, clean, and nekkid. They all have their beards and eyebrows, but all the rest is gone. Matter of fact, Fiona LOVED it. She was rolling and running all over the place. I think she really likes being stealthy so she can squirm between the boulders looking for those moles.
Here is a picture of Arwen before and after.
I do have some doll news! My Diva Cher is in the gallery section of Doll Crafter & Costuming, November issue. Yeah for CHER!
