2legges and THEIR fixations!
Oy. I overheard the momma talking to daddy. Grrr.... She is calling our groomer and making an appointment.
I sniffed me. I smell great, I am NOT dirty. I only rolled in that stuff outside that one time ... and momma wiped me down with that weird damp towel thingie that supposedly cleans you up without making you wet all over.
So... why the groomer? Oh, that is rich...my curls over my eyes make momma's eyes itch. Aha. I think she is haircut happy.
Have you noticed how "fixated" your 2legged is on "clean"? Mine seems to have OCD about clean.
There is a canine flu going around. Know what that means at my house??? Wipes. Antiseptic wipes. We hate them, we stink like medicine. We get wiped down after walks, God forbid anyone touches us... and every couple of days, our toys end up de-smelled and in the dishwasher or washing machine... It is insane.
Yesterday, I came in from outside and momma went crazy. She grabbed me and "removed" what she deemed to be "filth" off my back. Filth... Her plant dropped stuff on my back and I get into trouble for it. It is so true... there is no "fair"... anywhere but at the county seat...
I watched momma yesterday. I made a point of watching her wash her hands... I stopped counting after 7... We all know that anything more than 7 is a LOT. Then last night, she is putting on lotion whining about her dry hands... All together now... "DUH"!
But I do have to confess something... [please do not tell JD or Wendy] I like getting a pawssage with lotion. I do. It just feels great. For some reason, if you nap after, you are not all slippery when you wake up. But if you don't nap... your paws are slippery.
Both JD and Wendy hate lotion.... JD rubs off even make believe lotion. Momma has a cruel streak... she pretends she has lotions and rubs her hands together and then pets JD. That sends him into a frenzy and he "rubs off" the pretend lotion all over the rugs, by rolling on his back like a mad dog. All I can do is shake my head...
Back to this looming grooming issue...how to get out of it... Hmmm maybe I can use this dog flu germ phobia.... let me think... maybe, just maybe a sniffle and a sneeze will do it... I have to be careful and played just right. Don't want to overplay my paw....
etttttchew..... [just rehearsing]

You always look so beautiful, Silvie. I have a groomer appointment for this Saturday. It was the earliest one we could get and I am overdue. My momma is getting fed up with my red stained mouth ... the paws are better since we use that paw cleaning mug after walks all the time. But the mouth - she is muttering on and on about that.
Hey Silvie, I KNOW EXACTLY what you are talking about -- but at least you get to go to a REAL groomer who knows what they are doing. My mama insists on giving me my baths and hair trims. Let's just say I have a permanent "bad hair" day! But my mama wanted to pass on something to your mama and she said it was okay to share with you too. Mama manages a costume warehouse for a theatre company (I am the assistant manager -- yup my name is up on the picture thingy in the lunch room with all the other people who work here and I even have "responsibilities"). Anyway, it gets kind of dusty back here and mama was always washing HER hands (what is this fixation on keeping the hands/paws clean anyway?). One of the ladies who comes to play here all the time told mama that she should try washing her hands with lotion! Personally I don't understand the concept -- lotion is for making hands/paws feel good I thought. But I guess as long as you just want to get the hands clean (aren't worried about needing to kill any bugs), you can squirt lotion on your hands and "wash" them. Mama wipes the stuff off with paper towels and doesn't complain about dry hands anymore. Plus her hands DO smell interesting all the time now. Sometimes she will put a little onto my front paws after I go running in the park. But the grass is always wet now and the park guys put something in the grass that turns my feet brown and makes them smell like yummy mushrooms! So I end up getting my feet washed EVERY DAY!

BTW, I think you are cute!
red= protein+bacteria. Ick momma did this for a while with JD... wiped his face with a mild vinegar solution. 1/2 vinegar+ 1/2 water. Helped a lot because it acidified his face and that lowers bacteria. We just thought he smelled like a half dressed salad... ha ha ha ...
Oh use plain vinegar, NOT balsamic...
