Nancy Mason is a Cyber-friend and has parrots.
She also has dogs. She likes Florida. We have a lot in common. She entered my contest, “Keeping Up Appearances” and won a prize for her photo and great suggestion. She read my post titled “Errands” which is mostly about my dog Mattie getting groomed and sent me an email. She also sent me some photos of her dogs. This is so “Blog-Worthy” I needed to post it Here is Nancy’s email and photos:
Your Mattie reminds me a lot of my Peanut, who is mostly Lhasa and probably some kind of terrier. Her hair (which is what her fur is exactly like) just doesn’t stop growing. That’s a good thing I guess, and a far cry from how she was when we first got her. She was malnourished and had absolutely no undercoat and almost no fur. I thought she would be an extremely low-maintenance dog. HA! Joke’s on me! She was so traumatized every time I took her in for a haircut that they finally told me that she would have to be sedated. They thought she might injure herself because she struggled so hard. We now have a mobile groomer come to our house to do it. Peanut doesn’t like it, but there is almost no stress and trauma for her and the groomer has no problems whatsoever. We’ll be keeping this up until we move. I’m with you – if it ain’t broke……….
I had to throw in a photo of Maya, who even at 10 years old is still one of the most beautiful dogs I have ever seen.

This was so funny. I didn’t think you would use all the photos. Of course I’ve now had to send it off to everybody I know. You’re a hoot, Patricia!

“Hoooot!” It was a pleasure to have someone else write the blog. The photos are magical and your prose is perfect.
