  1. This Is Be Good To Myself Day

    September 28, 2011 by myeye

    I just signed off on the proofs for the Fall Bulletin — it’s going to press today.  In celebration thereof, I took Inca and Nola to Doggy Daycare where Inca will be bathed and groomed and Nola will have her nails Dremeled.  Yes, I can do all of the above, BUT — remember — I am being good to myself today.  Inca is shedding and she doesn’t just leave a little hair here and there.  SHE SHEDS big chunks of hair and she looks moth-eaten.  A good bath and a professional grooming will do wonders for her, for me, and for my generally lax housekeeping.  Nola doesn’t like to have her nails done so this way I don’t have to arm wrestle her.  I take them to the boarding kennel/grooming salon that is owned by my tracking friend that has top winning American Cocker Spaniels.  I know she takes good care of the dogs.

    This morning was the first time she’s met Nola.  Her comment has been the same for each Chase child I’ve brought in — “Look at the bone, look at the top line.  You’re going to finish her/him fast aren’t you.”  I doubt I will ever move her away from her Cockers, but she is becoming a serious fan of my dogs-with-no-legs.

    I’m wondering, if I work really hard for a few hours, can I fit in a hair cut and a pedicure because this is Be Good To Myself Day?
