Ok, I get it, you guys don't like being brushed!

Since Murray seems to be miserable over having his hair brushed every night, I decided it might help if he watched me brush Chica first. We do it down in our studio and I have this rocker recliner chair I put the dog in and I roll my office chair up close and sit in it while I brush them.

Chica never minded being brushed in the past, but it was only an every once in a while thing as she doesn't really need it very often being a JR terror (spelled that way deliberately)...

Now she has decided she hates it too....

Tonight I get out the combs, brushes, grooming spray & treat jar and call them down to the studio. They both come in...take one look at the grooming implements and both bolt into Chica's crate together!

Murray HATES crates and isn't thrilled with Chica either, yet here they both were in the crate and then Chica pulls the door closed!!!!

I laughed so hard I was helpless...I wanted to get pictures, but I was laughing too hard to manage it while both were still in the crate. Tomorrow night I am so having the video camera out & ready before I begin.

Murray & his mama, Sally~

LOL, that's soooo funny, I can totally picture it!

As soon as the dogs see the grooming box they RUN for dads lap like it's base or something.

You had me LOL It reminds me of Milo when he sees the bath being readied. He runs as fast as his little legs will carry him and we have to play a game of hide and seek first. Cute!

I need to post a video of our brushing time....I always give them a good treat to get up on the counter to get brushed and my two are ok to get brushed.

I ask them "Are you ready to get brushed?" and they jump crazy for it and fight over which one is first.

But, they always have a treat on the counter when they get up there to start getting brushed.

Very funny! Tori isn't bothered at all by brushing. But, like Milo, she runs and hides when she sees it's bath time

Well, I guess Murray has become quite settled here and has decided it is time to let Chica know who is boss. Despite his disdain for crates, he has spent a good part of the morning going into her crate and just sitting there, daring her to try and come in....then if she heads for his blanket, he dashes over there and lays on top of the toys and growls at her.
