A day in the life!

Sometimes I wonder where all of my time goes.  The weeks seem to fly by and I don't seem to have much to show for them sometimes.  So today I'm going to show you one of my weekly tasks, which is to groom the dogs.  My girls aren't super high maintenance, but they do start looking shabby after awhile.  I clip their nails weekly and usually give a little brush.  However every other week they need to be deep brushed and trimmed.  For Minnie this isn't too bad, but for Coco it takes a good chunk of time to get all the way down to the bottom of her coat.

Here she is before:

Not bad, but getting rough around the edges.  And under her top coat it is getting thick and matted.
Here's her archnemisis, the Furminator...

It doesn't look very imposing, but with those tiny teeth it rakes down to the very bottom of her double coat and pulls all sorts of hair out.

Needless to say, she doesn't think it's great at all.  She's a-ok with being matted and dirty.

After an hour of brushing and trimming, here's what's come out.

Now she's a looker ready for her time in the spotlight!

Doesn't she look like she knows she looks great?

So there's where a couple hours of my day each weekend go.  I think it's worth the investment. :)

And not to leave anyone out, here's Minnie after her trim.
