Looking like a top dog!
The perfect feline or canine always needs to look his or her best at all times. After all, you never know who you might run into on your daily walk. Recently, there was talk on a day time talk show about getting braces for dogs. Huh? I can barely afford them for my own children, but for a dog???? Get real! What? Is it like a dog’s teeth have to be perfectly aligned in order to attract a mate? We really don’t know what the attractor factor is for dog’s….maybe it IS a brilliant smile, but I think pets should stick to the basics, like getting groomed and licking themselves.
For example, Jessie and Bo are two distinct personalities. Every six weeks, it is imperative that Jessie receive an updated coif. The shampoo, the air-dried coat, and the trimming all add to Jessie’s overall look and glamour. I asked Jessie and Bo about this sensitive area of pet care, and this is what they had to offer:
Jessie: Getting groomed is definitely NOT a luxury for me. It is a necessity. In order for me to feel my best, I have to look my best. It does not bother me a bit that my human has me groomed routinely so that I look gorgeous and smell fabulous.
Bo: (Making a gagging sound) You DO smell after you’ve been groomed. Thank goodness I have no need to undergo such trivial pursuits. I have better things to do with my time and with my human’s money.
