Tasha Tuesday

Yesterday's grooming appointment didn't happen after all. When we got there, the groomer looked puzzled, like she wasn't expecting us. It turns out that she forgot to write Tasha's appointment in her book and, consequently, had another dog booked in our slot. No problem, I said, we can come back another day. So we're on for next Monday.

Our morning walks are on-leash now. But Tasha doesn't mind.

The groomer has a kennel on her property where she boards dogs. She has a cat area, too. There was a lot of activity yesterday morning when we were there. She offers a zoo day care deal for people who are traveling with their dogs. Tourists can drop their dogs off for the day so they can go to the zoo and not have to leave their dogs in a car. I think it's a real good idea and so, obviously, do a lot of other people.

Monday was chilly with some drizzle, so I built the first fire of the season in the wood stove. It was nice and toasty in the living room all afternoon.

Ken is back in France! We're off this morning to pick him up from the train station.


  1. What a great idea to have a doggy day care for tourists!

  2. Tasha is beautiful whether she's groomed or not! Nice that zoo tourists give the groomer additional business. Have they positively affected the economy of Saint Aignan in other ways as well?

  3. So Tasha is a mouse catcher, good girl!

  4. look at that happy girl! bet she will be glad to see her daddy (as well as you)!

  5. Love the idea of doggie day care for zoo visitors. So very sensible, and the dogs probably have a great time visiting.

  6. I am mad-jealous for the wood stove!
    Here is still hits 37C.


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
