Stink Bomb

Hello everyone, my arm is doing much better I have my first physical therapy appointment tomorrow-which I am greatly looking forward too. In other news, my cousin call me yesterday saying the place she works has a branch in my area and they are looking to hire. I went over this morning to hand in my resume and had an impromptu interview and got the job. :-) It is retail again (blah) but its a beauty type store that only sells to licensed professional and the hours are WAY better. 8:30-6 Monday-Friday 8:30-4 Saturday closed Sunday, are the store hours. So much better than having to close a store at 9:30PM and getting home after 10. whew... So there is lots of happy news on this front.
So on my way home from the interview I decided my arm was good enough to take Whiskey to the park (normal county park, not dog). We loaded up and off we went, she was a good little girl for the time. The park was busier than normal on a Thursday afternoon so I kept a close eye on her and let her wander without the leash. (Soon I am going to start training her on whistle training to call her back if need be). We were just about to venture into the "little woods" area when HUGE drops of rain started falling, so we headed back to the car. On the way back to the car she found some fresh duck(and/or)dog poop, and decided I MUST ROLL IN IT! By the time I got to her she had too much damage. all over the side of her face. (uuug!) I put her on the leash so she didn't get tempted to go for round 2. I figured "oh I'll just give her a bath when I get home." Yea... No... Not so much... My arm is better but I sure cant hold and wash a squirmy dog. I called the closest pet store (PetCo) to ask how much for a basic bath and if they had any open. It would be about $25 for a brush out and bath, and I added nails to be trimmed too. So for $30 she is at PetCo right now getting beautified.
I kind of wish I had gotten a picture of her goofy little stinky face but it was gross and she wouldn't sit still.

Hope everyone is having a good week, and hopefully next week I will have a video up of Whiskey newest trick- I wont ruin it anymore though you'll just have wait- it is pretty awesome and my best friend almost peed laughing! :-)

PS: Edit to post: Whiskey is back from getting clean. They must like me over there her whole package was $22 :-) So she got a new toy. Its a stuffed bear with 4 squeakers in it. She loves it and she smells so pretty now! And she has her "new year"collar on, and I will post pictures with the new trick post.


  1. Congrats on the job!

    Ughhh why must the doggies roll in nasty stuff? LOL. Glad she is all beautified now though lol. I've wanted to bring Sadie to PetSmart or PetCo but fear how she will react if I leave her there....

  2. Yay for the job! Boo for poopy face! :)

  3. Glad your arm is doing better and congrats on the job!!

    (and yes, your painting sits right by me on my desk! I love it! :) )
