Daily Prompt: All it’s cracked up to be

Sunday 031Tell us about a time when everything actually turned out exactly as you’d hoped.

Izzy’s first visit to the groomer.  When Izzy landed in my life, she looked more like a Yeti than a dog.  Her coat was so matted, it felt like carpet. The first picture shows her after a marathon two-day brushing session where I managed to release her tail from its furry trap. Can you imagine, the hair on her rear end was so long and tangled, she was unable to wag her tail.  What you can’t see in that picture is the matted hair that was squeezing the circulation out of the tips of her ears, or the nasty rash she had because her hair was so filthy. On top of everything else, she stank to high heaven.

Daily Prompt: All It’s Cracked Up to Be

Shaggy Dog

Right now, there is more hair than dog. The lovely waggy, shaggy Izzy missed her autum spa day and now looks like a bag of cotton balls that had a fight with a box of brillo pads.
