Grooming . . . Da Horrors!!


I had to endure an HOUR of hand strippin yesterday!!  OMD!!!  Ya wouldn't believe da amount of fur momma got off of me!!  And yeah, I are still SUPER fluffy too!


Brinley got to escape da strippin - yesterday anyways.  I hear she are gonna be in for it soon.


Don't look at me to help ya BFF, ya didn't come rescue me!  Maybe momma just wanted me to look good for da sellabratin dis week . . .


Now I are takin some dicktatayshuns from my momma.  Cuz she knows more bout dis dan me.  #SpoilerAlert - break out da tisshoes.

My momma and Brinley's momma buried Whitley today.  As most of y'all know, she wuz cremated when she died and da mommas has been workin on gettin da garden ready.  Diggin and diggin and diggin and buyin all kindsa pretty pink and white flowers for her.  She got a spot right by da pool, which wuz her favorite place.  At least dat are what momma says.


Da mommas didn't bury da box - Whitley's ashes went right into da ground so she can help da garden grow.  As a lil girl, momma read dis book called The Tenth Good Thing About Barney.  It helped her feel a lil better about the death of her firstest kitty cat, Bevo - he was in the ground too and helping the garden grow.  And now Whitley is.  She's joined her friends Hanky Panky, Charlie, Jezebel, and Maurice in helping our garden here.
  

I know it duzn't look like a whole ton right now, but da mommas say it are gonna be beeyootifull in da spring when da flowers start bloomin.

  9. We get hand stripped too and I don't like it one bit! It does feel good when it is done, though. Can't wait to see the garden in the spring. I'm sure it was hard for your mom to bury Whitley, but it was the right time for her to do it. She will always be in her heart.

  17. I am glad I only need a bath now and then and those are bad enough...my doggy cousin lets all the neighbors know he is dying when my auntie grooms him...he is a Cairn, so needs similar work on his furry floofs.

    What tenderness I see as your Momma is holding that box...and now petcretary has one of those lumpy things in her throat...

    I just *know* the flowers will be extra bright and beautiful come spring. What a special tribute and each year it will grow lovelier and you will remember all the good times you had together.
