seasonal change

graceful dance 
calls for summer change
slip that coat

Warmer days and dog play times meant something new for Maggie’s wardrobe. During our Melbourne Covid lockdown grooming services for dogs were closed along with almost everything else. As Maggie makes home grooming inpossible for Jill and I, ( we did try but could do very little) her coat became thicker and matted. This in turn meant she heated up when let loose in dog parks. Her groomers, (who always claim she is a little angel) had prepared for Maggie’s coat and indicated she would need clipping before they even saw her.

Having slipped out of her 2 kilo coat Maggie can again dance gracefully with her canine mates in the park.

    1. Since that photo we had the legs trimmed back also, too many burs were still being caught. We have only been mildly chastised once. They were expecting Maggie to be matted. I have shown my scarred hands, they know we cannot groom her.
