    So THAT’S how other people keep their cocker spaniel’s so clean! Here, Peaches! C’mere girl… it’s bath time!

    Sarah you are so funny. I will have to censor this from Tyler, who considers Chaeli a princess worthy of portraiture. Actually, Kathy’s dog goes to the groomer 4 times as often as I do.

    But I never considered the dishwasher…

    This is a good lesson for writers in that our readers may have a different interpretation of our words! Ha. Actually Chaeli is Quality Control Inspector #2. She’s in the dishwasher to make certain all the dishes were scraped clean. After all, someone just might have left a smidgen of something on their plate. Tyler should see her now. After yesterday’s groom (not in the dishwasher), she has a pink flowered bandanna and pink bows with tiny white polka dots in her ears. She got lavender-scented perfume.

    So much nicer than Eau d’Electrasol.

    Scotti won’t let us take the dogs to the groomers because we’re learning to live simply. This is fine for my poor old ugly mutt, because she’s a short-haired thing. But he has a cocker spaniel and a bijon frise, both of whom he trims himself. When he has time.

    Luckily, we are not shallow people, and are able to love funny-looking dogs.

    I’m known for going overboard, as you can tell from the first comment [son]. Cocker spaniels are high maintenance. In many ways.

  9. sarahemc2 says:

    Which, by the way, does not imply at all that you are shallow because your dog isn’t funny looking. (It hadn’t even occurred to me that it might seem I was saying that until a little bird whispered in my ear. Thank you, little bird!)

    Cf p. 147 in Butterbeans and blog archive for a picture of Chaeli’s ride home with the windows rolled down. My lab wears heavy brown eyeliner and Eau d’Pizza.

    Sherry, you’ve got to explain the heavy brown eyeliner.
