It's Not Easy Being Beautiful...

Okay, so as you all know, I groom Lucy myself. Not only does it save me $100 bucks, I'm such a perfectionist that when I've had someone else groom her I end up re-doing most of it myself. Well, yesterday was her quarterly grooming day. She should probably be groomed about every 8 weeks, but I always end up putting it off another 4. People (mainly Logan and my family) have asked me why I let her get so shaggy - especially when its 120 degrees outside. I decided to take pictures of the grooming process to show why I don't do it more often. It's a huge ordeal that takes hours to complete, although I've finally gotten it down to two hours from about four. It's also a huge mess. I used to do it in my apartment, and it was just awful. Now I've started taking her to Dirty Dawgs and using their grooming tables and huge bathtubs which makes the process a little better. Anyway, here are the pictures.

Mid-Groom... (look at that mess - and that's only the first half!)
