I'm taking Karma and Teddy to Petco for grooming today. Karma is desperately in need of it and Petco was the only place with an opening before the end of the month! She loathes everything to do with grooming: brushing, nail trims, and getting wet for a bath. She has only had one grooming, and we have NEVER been able to pin her down to brush her. We've tried all sorts of treats and all kinds of gentle brushes. She won't have it, so wish me luck that the Petco groomer won't give up on her.

As for Teddy, I'll just be glad to get the little bugger out of the house for a few hours. He got hold of a brand new bra and chewed it to shreds this morning, and that is the one thing I hate shopping for most of all!

I'm glad my two seem to enjoy grooming day. The key is to get them used to it all while they are young but with rescues you are usually SOL!.

I hope Karma can learn to relax and enjoy being groomed. As for me, I have rub and buff dogs...all short slick coats. Don't hate me! LOL And I dremel their nails myself but like no kudzu posted, I started doing that when they were just pups.

I'm still here! Unbelievable! Teddy was "Awesome", according to the groomer -- except for when he peed on her. I had forgotten to mention he could only hold it a couple hours. She thought it was hilarious.

Karma was great! She was a little iffy about the brush at first, but she did surprisingly well -- I am so relieved! She was perfect when they did her feet. That just stunned me.

The bad news -- Petco's grooming prices are pretty steep. With a small tip, a hundred smackers for both dogs!! I mean, I could have done Teddy in the laundry tub and trimmed his pads myself. I just thought it would be nice to get him used to a professional grooming place. Yikes.
