The Spaw!

My brother has three dogs. Cassy, a Maltese who is pretty old; Scrappy, a wonderful mutt who exudes adoration; and Sadie, of unknown origin who was so ugly that Marcy couldn't bear to not adopt her. Cassy and Sadie need regular grooming. Scrappy gets by with an occasional bath.

Cassy was looking pretty raggedy when we arrived this summer. So much so that Takumi and Bianca took the scissors to her and tried to cut out some of the matted fur. Let's say they did a less than professional job but Cassy got a brighter view of her world.

Sadie was pretty bushy too.

"Do you have eyes in there Sadie?"

But yesterday morning, the mobile pet salon showed up and Cassy and Sadie got beautified!

Oooh, The Spaw.

Sorry, the driveway is on a slight incline. A mobile pet salon is nice for the dogs so that they can just walk out to their front yard.

"Hello. Your bangs got pretty chopped up, didn't they?" (But nice try Takumi.)

Grandma parked herself on the hillside too and watched the proceedings.

"Oh dear... All that matting. I'm not going to be able to save Sadie's beard."

"Whack it all off. She needs to be cool and clean rather than beautiful."

Um... Who is that dog? She sort of looks like an alien invader. Beauty points... no, but as sweet hearted as ever.

Well, that was fun. Scrappy wants to know why he didn't get invited to the party.
