I’m having quite a week.
I was so overbooked yesterday, I couldn’t BREATHE.
OK, I could breathe.
But, I couldn’t catch my breath.
I need Paul Newman.
My arm is really pissed off at me.
Today, I have one (long) appointment in the morning.
In the afternoon, a friend is coming to visit.
She also happens to be a dog groomer.
Fred is a dirty mess right now.
I have visions of an afternoon filled with soap, water, and Newfie hair clippings.
My visions also include a gigantic, wet, bear of a dog running like mad through the house getting everything wet and soapy.
I wonder if I could film what happens?
Because, I honestly have no idea what will happen.
I’ve, obviously, given Fred baths before.
And, I brush him daily.
But, how will he be for a “new” person who tosses him in the shower?
I was perusing the “Newfoundland Dog Owners Forum” on Facebook last night.
There are over 8,000 members in the forum.
I noticed a recurring theme of “the terrible teens” Newfies go through …
Beginning right around eight months of age.
Fred isn’t “terrible” by any means.
He’s really a great dog.
There’s no question he’s become a bit more challenging recently.
If you happen to think of it, send good wishes my way this afternoon.
Fred and I just *might* need them.
P.S. I’ll try to get a few photos if I can.
