Me Go Grooming

Hi hi everyone! Me is still on crate arrest, boo hoo. Me hardly be limping now, so me really hopes that when me goes to see Emma the vet on Friday for my next Cartrophen injection she say me can go for little walkies again! Mummy said me can go to puppy class on Wednesday to sit and watch. She be worried about me not getting socialised and turning into a wild child!

On Sunday me and mummy getted in broom broom car and drove for about an hour. When we stopped we be at hall and there be millions of Airedales there. Well, maybe about 15 Airedales. It be grooming class. My sissy Roxy be there. She no wanted to play with me. She be scared of me and of other doggies. Her daddy letted her off her lead and she gradually getted more braverer. She be well groomed already, so she no needed to go on grooming tables, so she did socialising instead.

As me no be allowed to play cos of poorly leggy, me had to go on grooming table. Me be next to an Airegirl called Ruby. Mummy has meeted her before. She be very poorly when she be a baby. She be doing better now, but she has to take medicine every day for ever and ever. She be bit small for her age, but she be doing well. We did lots of stretching between gap in our grooming tables to sniff and talk. She be very nice and me hopes that next time we can play!

Suzanne, one of ladies who runs the class helped mummy make my ears lot tidier. It means they not be so heavy and they sit better and hopefully no need glue put on them. Mummy pulled all my puppy fuzz from my chest and shoulders. Me be bit baldy there now, but Suzanne say my big girl hair will grow fast there and will look better and be wirier than puppy fuzz. mummy still has to tackle my face, but she has to do it teeny bit by teeny bit, so me thinks me will be on grooming table lots this week. Me no minds really.

At end of class, mummy letted me have 5 minutes in yard with other doggies. Me was so happy! Me getted all the big boys to run after me, me was having great fun until mummy scooped me up and said vet Emma would be cross with us both. Mummy said me be floozy for getting big boys to chase me.

We no taked photos as camera batteries no worked. Next time we take piccies of me and my pretty sister Roxy!

When we getted home big Harry sniffed me lots. He said he could smell lots of doggy smells. Big Harry still smells of flowers from his bath on Saturday. He is still not itching of licking or nibbling. Good boy!

Hi Cassidy, your grooming class sounds like a lot of fun. our mom wishes that there was a class here for poodle grooming. she has to learn by trial & error and we are her subjects! we don't mind though. airedales have different hair than poodles do though. and you have those funny ears. we like your ears. we hope they don't have to get glue on them. hee hee.

Jackson said...

Hey Cassidy, you make grooming sound like fun! Pawsonally, I'm a bit reluctant to get onto the grooming table! J x

Peanut said...

we are glad harry isn't itchy. Glad your mom let you play for a little while. I'm also glad I don't have to get groomed.

Gus and Louie said...

At least you got to go along to the groomer. That was very nice of your Mom.. Soon your little leg will be all better..

Butchy & Snickers said...

Hey Cassidy,
We bet your ears look really nice. Mama has started our hair stripping. It takes her weeks to finish us. We're glad you got to attend your class & meet with the other airedales. Too bad Harry has itchies. Do you guys get salmon oil at all?? Mama gives us salmon oil on our food each day & we never have itchies. He could have allergies, but it could also be just dry skin. Hope you're back on your feet running around again soon. We want to see more pictures of you!!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
Butchy & Snickers

Agatha and Archie said...

You are almost there Cassidy!! Hold out and continue being good!! It pays off!! Archie walked his regular AM and mid morning walks today!! And he is going down the stairs but still skittish about going up! He hasn't yet been for a long long walk and still isn't allowed to play crazy with me, and can't jump on and off the couch...but it is better than last week!! Glad Harry lost the itchies!! Love Agatha +Archie

Lorenza said...

Hi, Cassidy!
Glad to hear that you are doing better! Lets see what your vet says next friday.
I can't wait to see pictures of your new hairdo.
Tell Harry "good boy" from us, ok?
Kisses and hugs

Kirby said...

Hi Cassidy,

I'm so happy that you are not limping as much anymore. Hopefully your vet will grant you walkies again. It's too bad you couldn't romp with the rest of the Airedales at grooming class. At least your ears got lightened. I didn't need glue for mine and I was all the more happier for that. Oh, I like floozy girls, so I guess I would have chased after you too! Keep on healing little one. Tell Harry I'm so glad he is not itchy. No cone = good things!

Your pal,

Ume said...

i'm sure u be pwettier after the grooming. take care of your leggy!

Super Boy & Baby-Licious said...

Stella said...

Sweet Cassidy fren!

Grooming class actually sounds kind of fun. So glad that Roxy is getting braver. I bet she'll soon be playing with you. And, your new fren Ruby sounds like a fun Airegirl. Give them both kissies from me.

You sound like you're a very good girl on the grooming table. I hate the table so my girl sits with me in her lap to clean me up. I bet you brought back all kinds of smells for Harry. Tell him I'm very proud of him... not licking his paws and all.

Goobette kissies,

Molly and Taffy said...

Hello CAssidy

We were so pleased to read that you went out to grooming class, was that parole for good behaviour? Hope your sentence is reduced on Friday and you will be free again to play.

Molly and Taffy xx

Gus and Louie said...

Louis is home and doing fine. He is acting as if he didn't even have surgery. Puppies are so great at bouncing right back. Thanks for your well wishes..

Big Sloppy Kiss

Lillie Valentine said...

Glad to hear that you are feeling better, but you better listen to your mum so your leggie gets better. Glad Harry is feeling better too. Then he can get rid of the lampshade. Take care! Mr. Whiskers for gimpy.

Bogart said...

So happy to hear that you both are doing better! Don't worry Cassidy, I'm sure there will be LOTS of playtime when you're feeling good!


Joe Stains said...

At least you got five minutes to play! I am sure all the boy doggies were in love with you! We are glad to hear harry is not being licky or itchy!!!

Huskee Boy said...

Don't worry Cassidy.. I am sure by the next class, your leggie will be fully healed and you can play all you want!
Looking forward to see pics of you and your sissy Roxy!

Noah the Airedale said...

Hi Cassidy,
We're glad to hear your not limping so much. You'll be ready to have playtime very soon. You're going to look even prettier when your mum finishes grooming you.

Hugs and tail wags

Hi Cassidy,
Can't wait to see the photos of you and your sister Roxy all nicely groomed. I bet it was hard for you not to be able to play for a long time.

So glad old Harry got rid of his cone head. He still manages to look diggy-nified which is so important for a Dale!!

Princess, Tank and Isaac: The Newfs of Hazard said...

Cassie! Oh NO! Watch out for those Catrophen injections! They're trying to turn you into a Cat! We like you as an Airepup - you're so adorable. Don't let them do that to you!

Hammer said...

Hi Cassidy
It's good to hear you had some fun even though it was short. Hope you get the 'all clear' at the vets and you can break out of your crate.
Love from Hammer
