Today was a beautiful day! I met Danie for coffee at Starbucks and enjoyed some good conversation. It was such a nice day that I decided we (my husband and I) needed to go do something. We went to eat at Buca Di Beppo (yuummmm) then went looking for bikes. I found one at Academy that wasn’t too bad, but the tattooed, head shaved, built gangster types that came to the bike area was giving me a hard time about it. I’m sure it was all in jest, but I decided to just get out of there.
We walked around the Portofino shopping center. It was nice to just walk around and enjoy the weather. Once we got home, I decided it was time to give the dogs a bath. So, we got all of the bath stuff together and brought up the unsuspecting dogs!
You can tell how much my dogs love grooming:
Ruby was the first to get her bath. She did pretty good but went a little spastic otherwise. She wouldn’t sit still long enough for me to get a picture of her!
Ellie acted like I was beating her when she got her bath. After she was done she kept rubbing herself against the garage and deck bars. I can’t blame her. She has a TON of loose hair (undercoat) that I’m sure itches.
Just to prove my point, here’s the hair that I was able to brush and rake off of her. There is still plenty left to clean up once she dries more too.
This is my absolute favorite dog grooming tool. I don’t know what it’s called but I call it the rake. It gets out all of the loose hair that the brush misses.
After I finished with the dog bathing, Mike had a surprise for me. He had found me a bike!
This is a 10 speed that someone dumped in our ditch and has been sitting in a bunch of water for months. It was actually in much better condition than I thought.
I’m off on Tuesday, so I’m going to stop by the Bike Lane and see what they have to offer! Ok, I’m itching (thanks to dog hair) and need to clean up. Tomorrow is normally a rest day, but I may get a workout in anyway.
