It’s birthday week kickoff for little Madison who will turn one on Thursday! Mom said it was time for her to go to the real spa to be spiffed up for her special day. I’m not due for a trip to the spa for a few more weeks, so Mom took my sisters since they do everything together anyway.
You can’t miss the enthusiasm the two of them were exuding while waiting to get checked in at Fancy Paws Pet Salon! Both of my sisters have been to a groomer for baths and nails, but never to a really good one to get their furs stripped. A real spa day seemed to be a bit frightening for these two!
What do you think of the first shot of little Madison with her new cleaned up look? We are super lucky because by coincidence, our groomer actually knows a GBGV breeder in Florida and has learned how to groom us properly. Most groomers don’t strip coats and certainly have no idea how to groom hounds like us. One of the most important things is our head, and making sure it is all shaped correctly.
My sisters and I each have different furs. Mine are super soft and thick. Bailie has thin, very wiry furs. Madison is a mix of us both. Mom took before and after shots of Madison to see how much better she looks.
Just like with me, they each had so much fur stripped out, Mom had to make their collars smaller! The shagginess is definitely gone from Madison’s look!
It sure looks like the birthday week kickoff is going well. Madison is looking great and feeling good after getting all spiffed up! The big trick now will be to keep these two shiny clean furry ones from digging and rolling in the dirt for a few days! Stay tuned for more birthday preparations and celebrations every day this week!
