The Shearing of the Sheep...uh Dog's time to shave Chloe. She has mattes galore. Poor thing...with that hair, she looks like a miniature sheepdog. Her hair gets soooo tangled the only thing to do is shave her. We're trying to save money here and the groomers is she's terrified of the stranger with scissors and leash. Who knows what really goes on in there. So we decided to take a stab at becoming groomers. Initially I was the holder and Casey was the shaver. She's very trusting of us...she didn't move a muscle. But of course....the woman thinks the man isn't doing it right so I took over. Shortly after I cut her leg.....I gave the scissors and clippers back to him. He's very careful with her skin. Despite the uneveness she looks pretty good and matte free. I think we need a trophy in pet grooming.

Happy Anniversary

I know it's been awhile since we've written, but here's a little update on what's been going on. March 27th was our big 2nd Anniversary. We went to Callaway Gardens for the weekend. It was beautiful down there with all the flowers blooming. Finally...Spring is here! We stayed in a log cabin room in the middle of Pine Mountain. It was just good to get away from the hussle and bussle of our daily lives and enjoy a great relaxing weekend together. We flew kites in the park and played croquet...yes you read right....croquet. We bought it for Casey's mom for her birthday and figured we should make sure it works! Flying kites can be good excercise when the wind is erratic. We bought two kites. One was a Sponge Bob Square Pants Kite that really flew well. Casey had a weak point of purchase moment. He bought a Star Wars diamond shaped kite though he knew it wouldn't fly. Callaway was a great place to celebrate our Anniversary together.
