|Soggy Spa Day|
May 14, 2018
Today was Nougat's "spa day". A lot of good it's going to do her. It's raining today and will be raining all damn week. Still, she does look and smell a lot better. She was in the van for over two hours! When Marcy brought her home she said there was a short delay, cause just as she was about to bring Nougat home, she (Nougat, not Marcy), had a little "accident", and peed on the floor. Marcy thought she peed cause she got excited about being done. She rinsed and dried her again and then brought her home.
Better even than her getting groomed was what happened when Marcy arrived. Nougat was in the family room. I went to get her. Instead of running away, she sat and waited for me to clip on her leash. She came willingly, and when she saw Marcy, she ran right up to her, stood on her hind legs and greeted her happily. Marcy picked her up to carry her to the van (because of the rain, the swale is flooded, so Marcy brought Nougat in and out through the driver's door rather than the back of the van). Nougat looked right in Marcy's face and sniffed her mouth. She didn't stiffen up or struggle.
When the previous groomer would come, Nougat would run away. When I'd go to leash her, she'd shake. She wouldn't budge and walk with me. When Olga would go to get her, she'd shake, she'd go read weight......She even peed on Olga a few times.
Today was the complete opposite. I am SO happy we found Marcy!! Olga did us a real favor by quitting. When Nougat came home, she made a beeline through the house......straight for my bed! Poor thing was knocked out. Getting beautiful is exhausting.
