Now that I’m more settled in the new place, I thought I would start the weekly comics Sam and Me again. Sam has missed all his fans. 🙂
This strip is about how much Sam hates getting groomed. Sam is a Bichon/Shih Tzu mix and so has to be groomed every 8 weeks or his coat gets really bad. You know that little boy in the Peanuts comic that always has a dust cloud around him? Pig-Pen? That’s my Sam! He is a boy who loves to get dirty, he seems to be a magnet for the stuff. So he has to get bathed, clipped and all that other good stuff. He hates it. Period.
I have a great lady that owns a mobile grooming trailer that comes to the house. It is a lot less traumatic on Sam and on me. I’ve tried other groomers but he is so hyper and such a Mama’s boy that I was getting desperate on finding a good groomer. Unfortunately the first couple of groomers hurt Sam and he has never forgotten, or forgiven.
When I finally found Tammy, my mobile groomer it was super! She loves Sam and Sam really likes her. But ……. Sam is such a drama king when he gets groomed! He howls and yips and cries and makes more noise than 10 dogs twice his size! It literally sounds like he is being killed, slowwwwllllllyyyyyy. It’s rather embarrassing. Tammy doesn’t even have to touch him! It’s funny and embarrassing at the same time. 😉
But it has to be done. This is my rendition of last week when Tammy came by.
