Spa Day

Mollie and Maggie went to the groomers yesterday. They would both rather stay outside and roll around in the snow and play all day so they both needed a spa day - BAD.   This was Mollie's first trip to the groomer since we got her.  I wanted her to feel comfortable before we exposed her to anything new and scary.  As it is, she doesn't travel well in the car.  I put her in the crate and she always gets sick, like all over, like bad!  I'm sure part of it is that she is afraid she's going to be abandoned again.  She got sick going but was fine coming home.  Next trip I'm going to try letting her sit on the back seat with Maggie.  They will be harnessed in to the seat belt holders so they can't get hurt and I'll put lots of blankets and towels down - just in case.  This is how Maggie travels and it's one of her favorite things to do.
 I'm sorry the picture is a tad blurry, but doesn't she look so adorable now?  The groomer, Jaymie, said she did just fine and was happy and there were no problems.  She said Mollie's starting to get the little tufts of hair between the ears that are so darling.

I talked to Jaymie about Mollie's coat and tail.  Maggie has a nice straight smooth coat.  Mollie's is soft but wavy.  She said her coat was not standard (she used to have a Scottie) and that may be why someone got rid of her.  Not up to standard - kick her out.  Insert angry face here!  Also Mollie's tale does not arch around like it should.  Most of the time it hangs down and when she does raise it is only slight.  Jaymie said she might have some nerve damage from an accident - intentional or otherwise.  Any opinions out there in Scottie land?

Whatever the case may be,  I'm so glad we found her - or she found us.  Even Maggie is glad she is here so she has someone to play with.

Such sweet dogs you have. We adopted three rescue dogs. They really bring a lot of joy to our family. So glad your pups have a forever home too. Merry Christmas to you and your family.
