Beginner’s luck?

Now, the lockdown is its sixth week and we are not only finding ourselves adopting to the new normal but also facing new necessities such as grooming dogs at home.

Pre-haircut Bella

Since the lockdown started, the weather in London was like early summer and Bella’s coat was a little too long for it. Since her usual groomer was closed for an indefinite period, I had to take up the challenge…

After I bathed her, dried her and combed her, she was ready to be given a haircut.

Lots of hair!

Despite my concern, Bella wasn’t too frightened by the sound of a clipper. It was really funny to discover that she seemed to know who was the real boss in here – she wasn’t very co-operative when Hubbie was holding her – she wriggled and yelped with no apparent reason, but she behaved much better as soon as I started to clip her alone. Hahah!

Much tidier Bella

I wouldn’t never had dreamt of grooming Bella until the lockdown and I kind of liked the idea of doing it by myself from then on.

What was the famous saying? “Necessity is the mother of invention”?

I never gonna thank the COVID-19 ever but without the lockdown, I never knew my new possibilities…

    • Hi, Agnes! Hope you and your family are well. Yes, I gave Bella a haircut and it went much better than I thought! However, I will have to clip her nails, a job which will be much harder than a haircut…😅

      • Hope you and your husband are well. I think I can see that Bella is certainly bouncing along. Yeah, clipping paw claws is the tricky bit as you don’t want to make them bleed. My mother had four dogs over her life, always groomed them herself as she didn’t trust strangers handling her ‘babies’ and she only once had a bleeding nail, but once was enough.
