I took the dogs to the groomers yesterday.
I don't know whether it was the uncertainty of her Dad being away for work, it being so early in the morning or her just wanting to be back on the riverbank but Mavis did not rush in the door to greet the groomers the way she usually does, indeed I had to step back out of the salon, pick her up and lift her purposefully inside.
I drove away feeling very guilty ... was she trying to tell me something?
She was much better when I went back to pick her up an hour and a half later and waited patiently while I settled the bill ... gulp!!
As soon as they got home, both dogs had their usual long drink and settled down to sleep away the stress of being bathed, partially dried and having their nails clipped.
They stayed there pretty much all day.
I think this look just about sums up this morning so beautifully.
'This is a better day Mum, thank you.'
She's always had eyes that speak to me. 💖
