Toby's Makeover

Before: Already Handsome
Toby is visiting the groomer today for the first time. He was eager to get behind the little gate dividing the reception area from the grooming room since he had no idea why he was there. The groomers were very friendly and admired his cuteness. Once Toby realized he wasn't leaving with me, he began to bark and whine. However I feel confident that he'll be fine, just like Kasey before him. 

Before: Long Toenails
Why visit the groomer? On Friday we are going on vacation and Friday night we're staying in a pet-friendly hotel. Toby will also need to get used to seeing the groomer occasionally when he's a licensed therapy dog, since that's an important part of  therapy visits. After all, would you rather pet a strange dog who smells nice and is clean and shiny, or a dog that is stinky and leaves oil or dirt on your hands when you pet him? I can bathe Toby with his organic puppy shampoo, but the groomer will express his glands, clean his ears, trim his feet, and clip his nails. 

Before: fur between toe pads
The groomer says Toby was a good boy.
After: Nice Manicure!

After: Not as scratchy.
A little sweetheart! Wonder if that's why he got the valentine bandana?


  1. What a cutie! Weasley, our pug pup, got his toenails clipped at the vet this past weekend and screamed like a banshee
