Today both dogs are going to the groomers.
I'm hoping Tallulah doesn't get too stressed out by it all. We are starting to think she is most likely pregnant, her tummy is slightly fuller.
I am going to take them over to the groomers for their 10 am appointments, and while they are there (it takes about 2 hours), Keera and I are going to visit Steve and Bex.
I am sure Keera will enjoy playing with her cousin Dante. And I will enjoy watching them.
Once Keera was asleep last night I got started on tracing out the pattern pieces for my new wall hanging.
I got to use my new light box:
But I love it. It's light and portable ... and so handy to use on my little lap top table in the lounge.
Tonight I hope to start matching fabric to pattern pieces and get some cut out. But that won't be until Keera is in bed again.
Stew is not due home until much later tonight ... he's in Rotorua today and after 'work' he has to give a speech to a group of people pertaining to his work.
So... It will be a long day for me with the kids.
So that's me for now... a full day ahead. Catch ya later.
OMG... so hot outside today! Just got home from being out and about (2.01 pm) and I'm feeling so frazzled!
Coco was a bloody NIGHTMARE today!
When I was getting her out of the car at the groomers, she literally screamed non stop... just wanted to get out and away... sniff sniff sniff... I could have throttled her.
Nothing pisses me off more than having a dog going apeshit over NOTHING.
Once I had dropped them off I went over to Steve and Bex's.... I took lunch with me. Fresh bread buns, cheese slices and a cooked chook. It was really nice.
Keera and Dante played together really nicely, no squabbling over toys. They were really so cute together.
While I was there I suggested Steve move his chair to a new position in the lounge so he didn't keep getting his foot knocked ... he was literally in the main 'thoroughfare'. So we did that and then Keera and I went and picked up the dogs and came home.
She is now having a nap and I'm watching Home and Away, taped from last night. BLISS.
ABOVE: Top... before. Below... after.
I got them to trim Tallulah REALLY SHORT so she is not too long when the puppies arrive, and while she's nursing them.
I won't be able to take her back for another grooming until the pups are at least 4-6 weeks old.
I'm relieved they are groomed though, it must be so hot for them over summer with their coats long.
End of Day: Stew got home at around 10 pm... poor bugger was rather tired.
Off to bed shortly...
