- I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...

Emma had a spa day today! I apologize for the poor quality photos, but with all the snow outside, (and it was snowing this morning when I took the first pic), I opted to take photos inside with bad lighting and a pup that won't keep still very long!
This was actually her first grooming. We had three appointments scheduled last year but they all got cancelled! I was so glad this one wasn't!
It's not a huge difference, but I noticed that more of her tan color fur is showing in the chest area. I asked the girl at the counter how Emma was today, but she didn't know. But if I know Emma, she was probably fidgety the whole time. Her bum area still has alot of fur, and I was hoping that part would be trimmed more. I have a feeling though that she probably freaked out when they went near that part of her. I know when we first got her she did not like us touching her tail stub or around that area, most likely because someone lopped off her tail before we got her. She lets us touch her tail stub now but is not as keen to let anyone else touch it. I might attempt to trim some of it myself.
Even though she doesn't look much different, she smells oh-so-yummy!
It was really hard not having her home. I did run some errands but I had a couple hours at home without her before I could go pick her up. My house sure felt big and empty and I felt myself on the verge of tears!
She was so excited when it was time to go, she barely said hello to me and immediately went to the door and tried to open it and when we got to the van she tried to open the door there too! She just wanted to go home! :)
And when we came home she drank 1.5 bowls full of water! I suspect she refused to eat or drink the whole time she was there and probably panted a lot, resulting in a very thirsty Emma!
I think it's safe to say, she's glad to be home!
