Madison went to the groomer yesterday morning. She was bathed, pedi-pawed (a giant task, lol), ear cleaned and clipped. H-Mom left her at the salon and picked her up an hour and a half later.
It was quite a tiring morning, and Madison was very clingy the balance of the day. In the afternoon, H-Mom was sitting on the sofa at the gallery, and Madison crawled up into her lap and started licking her hand. It was very silly and very puppyish and very unusual, as Madison has not been much of a cuddler so far. A kissy, kissy, licky, licky attack schnauzer, but not a quiet, cozy snuggle-pup.
From the groomer, she did get a lovely little Christmas goodie bag, and a rawhide candy cane, which she demolished before H-Mom could get the camera. The cookies look like "human" cookies, but they are doggie peanut butter cookies and they are Madison's favorite!
This morning H-Mom was washed, clipped and styled too.
Tonight, the teen-human is up for a hair relaxer. H-Mom does it herself, because she is very brave, and it actually comes out better than when the salon does it.
It smells terrible though, so Madison and Man-dad will probably go sit outside and watch the boats. Then H-Mom will get a nice photo of Madison with the Teen-human, because they are such a sweet duo. And all the girls will be styled for the holidays.
