I'm sitting here waiting for the groomer to call me when Charlie is ready.
First time to the groomer, he trembled, didn't want to walk in. I feel so guilty /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/frown.gif
I'm sure he will be all clean smelling good later.

I am sure Charlie will come home even more handsome than ever. Beware though, dogs that have been freshly groomed love to roll in something nasty, to show you what sort of perfume they like! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif

I bet Charlie will be ever so handsome! My parents' dog Maggie is a long haired mutt and she still trembles when they take her to get groomed. She has been going for years. But then again, Maggie is scared of everything!

Cecil and Brandy get "kennel" baths once a month while they are at my vet's doggie day care. They don't do the regular grooming, i.e. shaving areas, etc. They just get a nice bath, nails trimmed and ears cleaned. They come home smelling good and all they do is roll on the carpet. When we go outside they no longer try to get smelly. I think they like the way they feel and smell. Weird isn't it?!?

hehe, my husband was appalled, said the same thing to me!
I figure for $18.99, he gets a nail trimmed, ears clean and a bath, smell great too. Better than fighting with him with the nail clipper and the file, and chasing him around the house with the bottle of ear cleaning solution.
Hope Charlie likes it, I certainly do.

Charlie mom, I agree with you: it's a lot less tiring taking them to the groomer :biglaugh: I hope Charlie likes his new scent /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

Awww I bet he looks and smells gorgeous.

I used to take Lilly to the groomers once a year as a birthday treat. They cut her nails, cleaned teeth, expressed anal glands (if needed) and of course bathed and dried her. She seemed to like it and they said she was no bother.

I've only ever took Rosa once because she absolutely HATES being bathed so much that I really don't like the thought of anyone else doing it but me, she trusts me and knows that mummy won't hurt her.

I have thought about doing that too, and your right, for 18.99, thats certainly not bad for all of that! Its almost worth it enough for the nail trimming to me!! not a fun job here!

Actually, Booker (for some unknown reason - she is the only one of ours with "papers" and is therefore supposed to be purebred, although of uncertain lineage) has a longer and almost wavy coat that does need to be trimmed a couple of times a year or it gets way too thick and almost matted - especially around her neck. The others have totally different coats and other than a spit and polish really don't need grooming - but Booker certainly does!

18.99 is a great price!

I just spent 14.00 on each girl to have just the nails trimmed. When I bring my other dog in to get groomed it costs me 45.00. That does include a hair cut.

It definitely is a great price. I'd pay that in a second for all the services you're getting. How'd Charlie do?

The last time Tippi was groomed the groomers let her lay out with them until we came to pick her up. The girl who grooms her will call me if I wait too long between appointments because she says that everyone loves her and they really look forward to having her come visit them.

So, how did Charlie like it? /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif

I have to do everything for Boeing myself, bathing, combing, nail clipping, ear cleaning, etc. He doesn't like bathing that much, but he tolerates it. Combing is easy. Nail clipping has to be done when he is sleeping and I have to be quick and precise. Ear cleaning? As soon as he sees me with two cotton pads and the bottle of ear-cleaning solution...all hell breaks loose :animal18:
