Sess 4/12: Clipped the Dogs Today

Wilbur, Poppy & a blurred Pickles in Darland Woods

I had forgotten just how much I love my job.

My two miniature Schnauzers (Pickles & Wilbur) were looking rather like teddy bears and suffering because of the heat. Actually, with Pickles fantastic beard, she looked more like a mountain goat!!!

I decided that today was the day I was going to get them sorted out. So I got out my old tools and set about tidying them up!

Wilbur is a darling. He adores the attention and just stands on my table patiently waiting for me to finish. Pickles however is another story, she is a proper little madam. I decided to leave her ears until last because she always gives the performance of a life time and today was no exception.

However, feeling better than I have in weeks, remembering just how much I love my chosen career, I had the patience of job as I set about making them pretty.

Wilbur stood below my table, catching Pickles hair as it fell then spitting it out, yuk!

Lastly came my friends Cairn Terrier, Poppy. She is a naggy little pooch and snaps all the time. However, I managed to groom and trim her without any major jaw snaps.

So now I have three very cool, very smart dogs and I feel great because I have made an achievement today!


  1. My dog Lindsay is rapidly approaching time for a grooming! Surely the warm weather can't be too far in our future.

    She has such long hair we get it cut back dramatically for the summer and then she looks so skinny she could almost be another dog!

    Glad you're feeling better!

  2. Hi Sara, so glad that you were able to do your favourite job today! You are a star! Just wanted to say I have made it to 3k on the running machine, so ready for Race for Life in your honour in July!!! Will keep on running, as the song says, and will do you proud!!! Sharon xxx

  3. Hi Sara, glad you were feeling good enough to do 'normal things'! Sounds like you really enjoy it, and the pics are great.


I value each and every comment left, they keep me going and give me strength!
