We have been thinking about having Brandy 'groomed' since the spring and finally because I had a bit of a bonus ($175), we decide to spurge and and just do it. We took her to Petsmart, and I must say that for a seven year old puppy she looks pretty spiffy. Her hindquarters looked the best, but she would not let me take a picture of her backside.
We spent the rest of the bonus on a sauce pan, a set of sheets and I think we still have seventy dollars. Bonuses are great.
