Do you ever get into the rut of trying to keep up appearances (your kids need the perfect outfit, your hair needs to be perfectly styled, etc)? I think it is really easy to get caught up in this type of cycle, mostly because in this day and age we are always taking pictures!! Well today I sank to a new low, I Febreezed our Westie, Bailey! Seriously, he is such a mess! In his old age, (and if I am being honest, he is really just super sassy) he pretty much gives me a hard time when it comes to bathing him, trimming his nails, trying to brush his teeth, etc. So I figured it was time to make him smell better! Tomorrow a mobile dog grooming service is coming to our home to give him a desperately needed groom and bath, and I decided he needed a little dog deodorant (or Febreeze) because the last thing I want to do is tell them he is naughty and doesn’t like baths!
I cannot wait to see Bailey all cleaned up and smelling better, but I am also praying that he behaves and does not get put on their naughty list! He is pretty much on the banned list from all local dog groomers, because the poor guy is not allowed a Bordetella shot. His new vet thinks it might set his Addison’s disease off, but I think they are just being a little too cautious! Needless to say, I am so thrilled that I was finally able to track down a mobile groomer to make Bailey look spiffy again! His ears are a bit out of control! 🙂
