Sadie gets a hair cut

DSC00486Our dog Sadie, for those of you who don't know is an American Eskimo ~ part of the Spitz family. Basically she has very long white hair that sheds EVERYWHERE! They are very cute but she gets to looking pretty shaggy and much heavier than she really is... We have a "new to us" groomer. The place is called FANGS here in Rockledge and they are fantastic. Kristen does Sadie's grooming for us and she does a wonderful job. We like to keep her hair really short ~ She's 9 yrs old and still looks like a puppy!  I have to thank my friend Janie for telling me about this place.   They are very reasonably priced and even more important seem to genuinely like the dogs.  I've seen too many places being too rough with the dogs they are grooming. 

And just so you can see what Sadie is "supposed to" look like....

This is NOT Sadie but a pic borrowed from Dogster.com

Awww look at her precious face! MEEPS!!!! It is hard on the long haired dogs to be out in the heat. My bostons can't take more than 5 minutes out there little buggers. THey come in quick to the ice cold house then try to find blankets to crawl under. :)

Stop by for a chance to win my GIVEAWAY!

Sadie doesn't look like she minds going to the groomers. I think her hair is cute and I'm sure it's so much cooler that she doesn't complain.

That's the kind of dog I had growing up. His name was "Skipper" :)
