Grooming with Mom: Bath Time Fiasco

Lucy, Ace Reporter here, with news on the Groom Beat. Not too long ago I reported about Mom’s record setting six hour groom. If you missed that one, you can read about it here. Aoife (pronounced eefah), the Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, came back on Monday for her second professional groom. I will add kudos here to her mom and dad for keeping all the mats brushed out of her fine, thick coat. After all the preliminary stuff – you know, cutting toenails, pulling hair from ears, combing through her hair – it was time for her bath before getting her haircut. Aoifa’s almost too big for the bathing sink, and didn’t want to be bathed. Mom wrestled with her to keep her in the sink,  but Aoifa was determined. She climbed up on the top ledge of the sink! That was another first. We can’t wait to see what happens in six weeks when she comes back for her third professional groom. Oh, and it only took three hours, this time. Maybe next time will be even shorter, ya think?

  2. Lucy, Please tell Mrs. Amy we know she is a really good groomer and bath giver and wish she did long distant grooming. But I sure understand how Aoifa feels about baths. ~nose nudges Belle Pup

  3. Great reporting.Lucy. The good part was the dog wasn’t standing on Moms head. That happened here last week. I don’t understand. If they can play in every mud puddle they find outside how can they go ballistic in a calming bathing sink.?
