Grooming with Mom: Murphy & Maggie

Lucy, Ace Reporter here with another episode of Grooming with (my) Mom. Thanks, Miss Sandee at Comedy Plus, for hosting Awww Monday!

Today we have two new grooms, referred to Small Dog Grooming by Rhett’s Mom. First up is Murphy. Murphy is supposed to be a Morkie, but we agree with his Mom who thinks he has more poodle in him than Maltese or Yorkie. Here are a couple of “before” pictures:

Murphy just turned one year old, so naturally still has a lot of puppy ways. He gave kisses and wanted to climb on Groomer Mom’s shoulders and sit on her lap. He tried so hard to jump out of the grooming sink that Groomer Mom dropped the sprayer (twice), which caused water to fly everywhere. Among thing soaked were the Groomer from head to knees, the grooming table, and the floor. During the bath, Groomer Mom kept wondering if Murphy had chewed up styrofoam at home because of the little, round bits of puffy white things she kept finding in his fur and on the bottom of the sink. Then she saw the white film on her smock, the grooming table and the top and outside of the sink. After getting Murphy rinsed, toweled and under the dryer, she looked up. Sure enough, the water had reached the ceiling and removed about a foot portion of the popcorn ceiling! Another first! Anyhow, Murphy is still welcome back. Here he is, finished and cleaned of all the ceiling popcorn:

Next is Murphy’s sweet sister, Maggie. Maggie is also supposed to be a Morkie. You be the judge. No before pictures, and no funny stories.

  1. Lulu: “Our Dada took one look at that term ‘Morkie’ and started talking about Robin Williams and Ork and well he just got totally sidetracked from the whole grooming thing. We have no idea what he’s talking about, but we think they look great after their visit!”

  4. to me it doesn’t matter what they are, both are adorable and the after look is amazing. not even the same dog is what I would say… oh no on the popcorn. the nut case I live with, at bedtime, one night last week, saw something on the popcorn ceiling that he thought was a bug. he got up, swatted what turned out to be a piece of dust, and the burgundy sheets were covered in the white bubbles you describe.
