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!”

20110925-121728.jpg

“Let me hide behind this lace!”

20110925-121741.jpg

“Look at me!”

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

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!!

Chloe – Bichon Frise

This is Chloe, one of our very first Bichon Frise females that we adopted into our kennel.  She is on the smaller side, fun loving, playful, and a true escape artist!  She is affectionate and sweet.  We hope she is pregnant with AKC Bichon Frise puppies, as this is her last litter, and we’d love to keep a puppy to carry on Chloe’s wonderful personality and temperment.  These pictures are especially for Lynda and her daughters as they have a Chloe puppy and have been waiting ever so patiently for me to post pictures of their Bayley’s mama!  So, Lynda and girls, here she is!!!  Enjoy!
