Dabbling in dog grooming

I didn’t get anything else finished yesterday.  The felted hat looks like it will be too tall, I need to do another felt cycle before I know for sure.  I started another Amber hat and got halfway through it, and I made it through the ribbing on a new pair of Pomatomus socks – Dixie and I ended up having matching STR Seduction yarn, so we are making matching socks!  She’s way ahead of me though, and I’m such a slacker lately she’ll probably beat me to the punch long before I even finish one sock.  I also spun a bunch of singles for the embroidery on the Darling coat, maybe I’ll actually do it sometime this weekend.  That’s all in the crafty department.  Nina_groomed

In other stuff, I found a Cocker Spaniel message board back when we first got The Puppy, and the guy who runs it made a grooming dvd and started selling it.  Well I got my copy yesterday, watched the first dog get groomed, and decided I’d have a go at it.  I bought most of the supplies already so I was all set.  I worked on her head, face, and behind, also did a little trimming around the feet.  This dog was scruffy, let me tell ya’!  It was pretty fun, she did awesome – only a little fighting at first and then she cooperated really well.  I messed up her top knot, so she looks like she has a buzz cut or something up there – lol.  Other than that, I think I did pretty good for my first try!  I may watch more later and try to do some more, she is still really raggedy looking.  I plan on doing all of her grooming myself, which will end up saving me tons of money down the road – we have brushing, ear cleaning, and toe clipping down already 🙂

Have a good weekend!
