Important company is coming later this week so it was time to spruce things up. On my list was Molly our Irish Wolfhound dog. It has been over a year since she had her nails clipped and a bath. Molly hates the groomers more than she hates getting into the car. Fortunately I located a wonderful groomer/dog trainer who makes house calls. Richelle has a definite gentle touch with dogs.
Molly weighs more than 145 pounds. She does not fit into any tub. This was going to be an outside job. In preparation I filled up several containers with the water hose and let them sit in the sun to warm up.
Richelle came with a neat leash which wrapped around Molly giant mid-section and also tied onto her collar. My job was to hold Molly down so she didn’t bolt. Richelle is a skilled groomer and she took extra time to build trust, nevertheless poor Molly was a wreck.
In the end, when she eventually dries, Molly will be one sweet smelling fluffy dog. She may never forgive me though.
