The dogs were all happy on Saturday morning as our relaxed pace instantly signalled that we would be home with them and that it would be a no work day. Things started off nicely for all of us. Lilac let us sleep in until 5:00 and then they all came back in and went back to bed, much to the delight of Bunny and Blueberry. Even Lilac laid down and went back to sleep.
We got up slowly, taking our time, eating a slow, leisurely breakfast in our pajamas and curling up with the dogs in our various favorite places. Each dog got a bit of bagel with cream cheese and the world was very good.
Then, the day took a turn, at least for Blueberry. Mr. Taleteller emerged from the bathroom with the dreaded apparatus. All the girls were napping and blissfully unaware of its presence.
Bunny doesn't mind having her nails cut too much, and she was the first one to get her pedicure. She didn't put up much of a fuss and so Blueberry slept on, content with her dream of chasing rabbits in a sunny meadow. Lilac has a problem with her nails, so we usually pay the vet to cut hers and skip the saga of her nails at home. That left Blueberry.
To top it off, we went out to run some errands and the girls didn't get to go. Blueberry retreated to the couch to sulk. It's funny how some things can really ruin a girl's day!
