You Know It's Grooming Time When ...


Ruby takes her final walk before grooming.

You can't see the path ahead of you

Ruby takes the walk of shame before going to the groomer

Your ears become wings

Ruby's pre-grooming walk of shame

Your tail looks like barbie doll hair

You know it is grooming time when you are mistaken for a mop

You are mistaken for a flying mop 

Ruby enjoys one last walk with her fluffy fur before getting groomed

Your sweater is a little too tight and you hear whispering about cutting back on the treats

A floppy dog takes her before picture before grooming

You explain that it is fluff, not fat - and as a dog with a checkered past and some self-esteem issues, you don't appreciate being fluff-shamed.

Top Six Signs it is time for grooming.

I get my furs stripped. When I come home from the spa, Mom always has to tighten up my collar since the fluff is gone!

Oz theTerrier said...

Oh Ruby, you furs are long and flowing. Why would she want to give you a trim? I personally like when my fur gets fluffy but of course, that is when the hand-stripping starts.

You are always beautiful sweet Ruby!

Madi and Mom said...

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh Ruby darling every one needs a tad more fluff this time of year.
I bet once groomed you will feel like you have lost at least a 1/8 of yourself.

Haha! This happens to Eddie more often that it should. He's overdue for a grooming!

Sully said...

BOL how dare they suggest that your fluff might be from treats! Shame on them.

Aroo to you,

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

"Fluff-shamed" ... that's got to be the term of the year! We think you're beautiful, Ruby :)

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

We live in fear! There are no tell tail signs. The grooming table is always ready and suddenly SHE swoops down on an unsuspecting scottie and starts the torture!

Molly the AireGirl said...

You are so cute just the way you are, Ruby, but we know how the moms are. I heard the same "groomies" word yesterday. Oh well - at least we'll be cooler when springtime comes!

LP said...

Wilhelmina understands completely Ruby! It looks as though she has dropped ten pounds every time she is groomed! We bet you will look lovely after being groomed. Does your groomer put bows in your furs? Wilhelmina's does and it looks very pretty! :)

M. K. Clinton said...

It is grooming time for Pierre too! He looks like a ragamuffin!

Sweet William The Scot said...

Let it fly in the breeze and get caught in the trees
Give a home to the fleas, in my hair
A home for fleas, a hive for the buzzing bees
A nest for birds, there ain't no words
For the beauty, splendor, the wonder of my hair
Flow it, show it
Long as God can grow, my hair
I think it is perfect.
Sweet William The Scot

Lola The Rescued Cat said...

Ruby, we love pics of you running! Mommy knows she needs grooming when she can't see the path in front of her, too!

maryehaight said...

Too funny especially the ears as wings and the Barbie doll tail hair! Fat accusers will likely be shocked at the little pooch under all that hair =)

Shinan Barclay said...
