Wednesday Comics ~~ Sam and Me

I missed last Wednesday, but today I just had to do the comic.

Yesterday Sam got groomed again. This time I gave him a sedative from the vet. Did it help? Oh yeah! hahaha.

Poor Sam didn’t know what hit him. It made things a lot easier on Tammy though. Tammy is Sam’s groomer. She comes about every 8 weeks in her mobile grooming trailer. I love that she comes to the house. Makes things so much easier on Sam and me. Tammy is a wonderful lady and groomer.

So I gave Sam his sedative about an hour or so before Tammy was scheduled to show up. By the time she did come Sam was feeling no pain. He was not completely under, but he felt pretty darn good!

Sam was really good for Tammy, except for two things. His nails. He has super sensitive paws and hates getting his nails clipped.  Oh and she couldn’t get his butt trimmed. I will have to take him back over to the vet for that. Sighhhhhhhh. Poor Sam was traumatized by the first groomer that clipped him. She hurt him bad. He has never forgotten. I don’t blame him. That groomer came recommended by an acquaintance. So I blame myself for not checking her out more, or staying with Sam that time.

On the whole though Sam did really well and Tammy was pleased with him. She will be back in September and I will be back to the vet’s for more sedatives. 🙂

I enjoy reading, writing, and painting. I love animals and at present have one dog (Sam) and 2 cats (brother and sister, Notwen and Pouncer). I've lived in various places in the USA and now in Canada. I've always enjoyed watching life and people and have developed an appreciation for it all. My outlook is sometimes out of the normal.... but that's what makes things so interesting! I am always interested in the opinions of others. Everyone has their own outlook and it's always worthwhile to listen!

  1. I love your comic and your blog is so pretty…I think my dog needs a sedative every time the mail man walks by..


    1. Thank you very much merbear. Sam only barks at other animals. He’s a pretty quiet dog. I had one before Sam and she barked at everything and everyone EXCEPT the maillman. haha!


  2. This was so good I laughed so I cried! “I love everyone” takes the price 🙂 I’ll try that on Bumble because he has a new groomer next time…”his Sara” moved up north last month…


  3. Animals are always good subject matter for comics. My dog gave me years worth of entertainment. Have you ever put boots on Sam? Now, there’s a giggle and a dozen. I videoed it and laughed for days. Good groomers are not as easy to find as one might think. I hated to have to hunt one down when we were traveling.


    1. I’ve never put boots on Sam, but I had a pekinese that I did. Oh wow, that was funny, but I had to in winter because the snow would clump on his fur so bad. I keep Sam groomed short so he doesn’t have that problem. I love animals and Sam is a character.


  4. My dog Cally loves going to the groomer, but I think it’s the Puppyccino (warm dog formula milk with cinnamon sprinkled on top) that she really looks forward to. That and the dog cookie 😉
