Wordy Wednesday Report Card Time

Do you notice anything different about us today?

Are you bedazzled by all that "whiteness" on our furs?  Yep, this week was Spa Time for each of us.  Misty and Timber had their summer grooming yesterday, and Lightning went today.  We thought you might like to hear how our groomer rated us:)

Lightning here - I got an  A+++++.  Ms. H. said I was just awesome, amazing, and A-1!!!  I was very cooperative, but I really just wanted to get it over with so I could go home.

Misty here - I know you won't be at all surprised to learn that I too received an A+++++, well maybe I got a few more +++'s than Lightning.  Per Ms. H, I am amazing, astonishing, adorable, A-1, and awesome!!!  I spent most of my time giving Ms. H. lots and lots of sloppy kisses.  She really seems to like that.

Sheesh, I wonder why I, Timber, get to go last.  I don't get this whole report card thing, but Ms. H. gave me a great big fat F.  Actually I think she said it was an F minus minus minus minus minus!!!  She said I was a total freakout failure.  What's up with that?   She kept trying to put me in this big bucket with water and smelly sudsy stuff.  I fought her tooth and nail.  Then she put me near this big noisy machine that kept trying to blow me right out of the room.  I gave that blower a good Woo talking to.  I think everyone liked that song because everyone at the place came in to see me!!!  AND as if that wasn't enough, she then proceeded to steal all my beautiful nails.  I sure hope I don't have to do that again.

Mom's turn - this was Timber's first trip to our groomer.  It was quite a surprise to hear how poorly he behaved because he is the one out of all three who absolutely LOVES to be brushed.  I guess B.A.T.H.S. and blowdryers are not his thing:)  Ms. H. suggested he get a 15 mile walk before he comes the next time.

Woos - Lightning, Misty, and Timber

OMCs we had to don our Foster Grants right from the very beginning.
Lightning my word you are whiter than fresh snow and very plush. Congrats on your report card
Misty darlin' one. You are so white and I bet as soft as a wee biped tush.
Your mask looks as if it might have rec'd extra attention. Congrats on your report card.
MOLMOL Timber you are you and you march to your own drumbeat. I like to be brushed too but I'm pretty sure I'd had the BATH and blow dryer.
Maybe your Momster needs to buy some of that dry shampoo. You still look stellar in spite of the struggle.
Hugs madi your bffff

Julie said...

Butt, I should mention that my BAFF lady does give me TREATS when I've been a good girlie so maybe next time you might want to be a bit more crafty?????

Baffs are NOT my thing either.

Hari OM
Oh yes, even before I scrolled down and found out I said to myself 'golly it's bright here today!!!' You all do look most gawjus... Timber, I am sure that you could get to love the routine with a bit of practice. Maybe mum could put her hairdryer over you from time to time, just as a practice? Well done Lightning and Misty. Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

It reminds me of Tsar's first time at the groomer. We got a call to come get him. I had told her that he couldn't be crated because of claustrophobia but she did it anyway. He panicked and tried to rip the crate apart. He ripped off three nails, burst the blood vessels in his eyes and broke a tooth leading to a root canal. Not a good experience.

KB Bear said...

All that I can say is "thank goodness that Labs don't need spa days" because they'd each fail for their own reasons!!!!

Hang in there, Timber. You'll figure it out. You're such a smart boy that I bet that you'll be getting more +'s than Lightning someday!!!!

All three of you look fabulous!

Astro & Mitzie said...

Timber I feel your pain I hate to take a bath too.
My sister Mitzie loves water, she can have 2 baths.
My mom saw on the laptop a trick.
You smear peanut butter on the wall of the bathtub
down low enough for us to lick, then you give us a bath
while we lick the peanut butter. win win or maybe a big mess.
We haven't tried it yet.

You look beautiful. Don't worry Timber. It is hard to trust someone when they want to scrub your underneath

Idaho PugRanch said...

Oh Timber! something tells me you will have to get used to the occasional spa day

Millie and Walter said...

You all look fabulous today. We hope Timber will get more used to the bath and blow dry someday.

Matilda the Boxer said...

Wait, they stole your NAILS?!?! What kind of a weirdo place is that? Poor Timber!!

The Army of Four said...

What's that saying about "two out of three ain't bad"? Or maybe it's a line from a song.
Anyway - you all look great! More importantly, I'd like to know what rating you all gave Ms. H!!!
Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

Marg said...

Oh Timber, we don't blame you one bit. That must have been awful scary. Maybe next time you will be better. Lightning and Misty, you two look so great. Good luck next time.

Tails Around the Ranch said...

No matter Timber, you'll always be a A+++++ in our books. We're not so keen on that water and air blower thingy either.
Your fur-iends,
Sam & Elsa 🐾

Hahahaha, we love the suggestion of a 15 mile walk! (Don't worry Timber, spa day hopefully doesn't come too often we hope!)
