Well, I'm starting to pick up the pieces now that the puppies are gone and one of the first things on the agenda was to get Maya groomed. You have met Maya before but I never really said too much about her. All my life, I had Dalmatians. In fact, most of them were named Pepper (so original). My last Dal was Bailey and she was the love of my life. There will never be another dog like her and it took me 2 years after her passing before I was able to get another. I thought this time I would just pick up a mutt and I did a lot of research and fell into the big trend to get a Lab x Standard Poodle cross. Of course, I got the one that sheds AND barks but she is also very gentle and very sweet with people (once you get in the door, that is. LOL)
Maya gets groomed several times a year but I don't mind when she looks like a mop doll either. Just easier to keep the house clean when her fur is short. This is the first time, she came home without a beard!
