A Few More From The Groomers

What a surprise to run into another Cavachon at the groomer!  This girl was a Ruby puppy, that has kept some color on her ears and back, but faded to a beautiful creamy red color!  It’s always fun to see what a breed of puppy will look like as an adult!

She was a lovely dog!

And of course, can’t forget about Molly & Braden.  I forgot that I had taken these snaps as well!

Oh goodness, it just doesn’t get any cuter than this!!!

Shichons Get A Bath

A bath, brush, and blow-dry is in order before puppies go home.  Each puppy is always so different, some loving the water, some hating it!  Most of them don’t like the blow drier AT ALL, so ultimately, it’s a bit of a stressful experience.  But they all survive and they all look 100% better when it’s over!  I forgot to take a “before” picture, but you get an idea of the process from these photos!  They both did very well, and only mildly objected to the blow drier!  They were definitely balls of clean fluff when it was over!!

Cute little wet rats!!

“Really now, did you HAVE to give me a bath?”

20110925-121709.jpg

“It wasn’t so bad!”

20110925-121718.jpg

“Oohh, these towels are really snuggly!”

“Let me hide behind this lace!”

“Look at me!”

“I may look cute, but I’m going to remember this.”

Garden Supper

It’s that time of year around here when the garden produce is finally ready to eat!  We planted corn for the first time and it is delicious!!  I hope to get some of it in the freezer, but for now, we’ll just walk out to the garden, pluck a few ears off the stalks, shuck it, steam it, grab the butter and salt, and yummmmm, the kernals expode in our mouths with all the juicy, sweet taste that comes with home grown foods!  And not only does it taste so good, it looks purdy too!

I”m so proud that we grew this corn!  I want to plant twice as much next year!

20110925-121400.jpg

Our supper was mostly all garden produce.  Not all of this came out of our garden.  Some of it came out of my friend’s garden.  This was our supper that we shared together.

Corn on the Cob
Green Beans
Tomato/Cucumber Salad
(Those were our garden items)

and yummy Rice that my friend made!  It was the perfect light, summer supper!

Take another look at it!

20110925-121421.jpg

Now look at it in HD.  I’m not sure what the big deal is.  The HD picture seems to be more faded looking??  Maybe someone can educate me.  One of these days I’ll learn about photography.  Maybe after my kids are all married!  Maybe then, I’ll have time!

20110925-121428.jpg

 

Oh, and the green beans have home grown garlic – I noticed it on the HD picture – maybe that’s what the big deal is.  You can see stuff better!  Oh, and the tomato/cucumber salad also had olives, tofu, and all sorts of yummy herbs.  Don’t ask me for the recipe.  I have no idea!!

We Interrupt Our Normal Programming…

…to show you my friend’s new litter of Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppies! She got the whole rainbow of colors, Blenheim, Tri, Ruby, and Black & Tan! I’m so excited for her!

These babies could transition into my Accelerated Program, and/or if anyone wants info about these babies, just let me know. Both parent dogs are heart cleared and eye tested, and these babies are raised with lots of love and attention!

Mini Groom

What a fun little service from my Groomers!  A “Mini Groom” for puppies to get them used to coming to the groomer regularly.  They do a bath, blowdry, brush, and a bit of trimming around the eyes, bottoms, and they trim their nails.  The transformation is phenominal!!  These two siblings were so cute, and their hair covered their individual tan points to the point that I could hardly tell them apart!  I’ll do my best to label the photos below!

Braden??

But the problem is, if this is Braden above, then the picture above that should be Braden as well, but that looks like Molly to me!  LOL!  All I know is they were stinkin’ cute!!
