We went to Bubbles and Biscuits today to get Barney groomed. He was getting a little shaggy, and his toenails desperately needed clipping. And the bath was a good idea too.
The groomer thought he was very sweet, especially cute---but one of the most active, rambunctious and squirmy puppies she'd encountered in a while. :) She suggested that before his next grooming I make sure I run him around and get him tired out first. "Bring him in when he's just about ready to nap." Great idea. I'll try it.
At least now we'll look presentable for our next puppy class--that's tomorrow night. Maybe we will be the center of attention again, but for all the best reasons this time.
(no, his eyes aren't blue, but for some reason they show up that way. Maybe it's the dog equivalent of "red eye." Anyone know how to avoid it?)
