Before and after.......

 Today was grooming day at our house and boy does Vallie need a haircut.  She's beginning to look like the Shaggy Dog....alot of you are too young to remember that movie.  I love it when her hair is long but it's such a trial to take care of so off we go.....

and came back with this little cutie pie.  She's all clean and clipped.  I like what they call the puppy cut.  Her ears are shorter and her fur is only about 3/4 inch long.  Fleas are so bad this year and she refuses to take any of the oral pills for them so I tried some of the spray that you can get at Petsmart.  I bought one from Advantage and Vallies hair started to fall out.  Maltese are not suppose to shed but she sure was.  
Watching tropical storm Arthur down here.  I'm pretty sure it's gonna go up the coast line and hit the Carolinas.  It's pretty early for Florida to get hit by a hurricane.  Ours are usually in August and September that we get the worse ones and my youngest grandson (who's 9) is in no hurry to see what a hurricane is like.  We tell him we have no choice in the matter but that doesn't seem to help.  
Well I hope everyone has a wonderful 4th of July.  
Blessings, Barbara
