Here's Marvin!!!

(click to enlarge)

If you think Maxine is a hoot, wait till you get to meet Marvin, her husband.
They make a fine couple. lol

I love jokes that come out of life.

Today my husband was chasing the dog trying to wipe her butt.
He was at a loss and said I am trying but you have to clean her butt.
I told him he was doing fine, so why doesn't he finish the job?
He gave me the look....

This is why I am always the bad guy in this house.
When they see me coming, every one runs in different directions
including the animals lol

So I took my Tanya into the shower and gave her a good wash She needed it anyway.
She began to shake so I wrapped her into a clean dry towel and put that into a blanky and held her
till she stopped shaking and got toasty warm, enough to fall asleep.
Then I slowly began to clip her face and ears and chest etc.... working my way down her body.
I still have to trim her butt though. lol

She was good but then got tired of behaving. She is my baby now and I love her very much.

Dogs know. When ever they see scissors, they are off in another direction.

This week end the other one also needs cleaning so hopefully it will stay hot so we can take a hose to him with soap and a brush to comb all the dead hair off.
Much easier to do all this outside than inside.
Big dogs are a different problem.
I rather they shake outside.

Our dog used to hate a bath. In fact he hated it so much he learned to spell it! I know this because whenever I said to hubby "shall we B.A.T.H. the dog?" the dog would start growling and go and hide!

Akelamalu - lol and they say animals are stupid.They follow you around, look into your eyes and see your heart and soul. They know you better than you know yourself.
Sometimes I swear they can hear you think.
Many times I'd sit there and look at the dog sleeping and think while she is sleeping I'll get the scissors.
She immediately gets up and leaves the room. Now how does she know I am thinking about scissors and not getting up for a cup of coffee?
I never said a word.
Animals are something else esp dogs.

I never used scissors on my dog, but whenever I had even the intention of going to the bathroom to get her Frontline flea medication, she would run downstairs and get away from me as fast and quietly as possible. She just KNEW, even when I tried to disguise my intentions and thoughts.

A Lady's Life said...

Lorna - Amazing.
I tried this many times.
I get up a 10 times to do other things and it's all ok. They sleep. but think about something they don't like and they know.
It's like ESP . They know what you are thinking even before you think.
These are older dogs usually.
Like mine is 10 now.

I think Marvin is every bit as good a philosopher as Maxine is. Have a great weekend.

A Lady's Life said...
