I Jinxed Myself

You all know how much I love to take Gracie out with us in the lake, right? Well, she had a bit of a mishap when she swam ashore to use the potty. She must have run head-on into a stick-tight bush. She was covered in those little tiny burrs! All I could think was, "I wonder how long that's going to take to comb out?" So, here's some pictures: first, she is waiting patiently for us to get all our gear together, second and third pictures are after the calamity, and the last one is her "after" picture. It took two sessions, first hour for her head, ears and neck, then another 30 minutes for the rest of her body.

Oh, the poor thing! And, poor you! I had to get a bunch of burdocks out of Baxter recently and that was a test, but not nearly as many as you had to do. Congratulations on the both of you living through it.

Oh she looks so pitiful, and poor you. She looks much better in the after picture.

WOW! Poor thing. Could brushing her hair "underwater" have helped?

Oh, poor her and poor you! What a nightmare. You did a great job though. She looks great in the after shot.

Brody just loves to brush up against stuff like that. I think he does it on purpose! He's never been that bad though. I do think that was part of the reason I had to get him shaved, I think I may have missed some. They are hard to get out!
