Bark & Bubbles

Hey frenz,

Phew, it has been a crazy weekend. I went for my regular walk with Mom yesterday and I discovered birds?!! I know I know it sounds strange but I never really let those birdies bother me but I have no idea what got into me yesterday! I was trying really hard to chase the birdies but Mom held on to my leash so tightly that I couldn't even get close to them. Those birdies kept taunting me from afar and I had to BARK really loudly to show my displeasure. :(

I mentioned earlier that I visit my regular beauty salon to get my nails done. I haven't had a chance to go for a full grooming session cos my hair's still growing really slowly. Mom says a long hair dachshund coat will take up to 3 years to grow to a bootiful length like Copper's & Hershey's so I'll just have to be patient in the mean time.

I get my nails groomed like every 6-8 weeks depending on how much walkies I have been getting. My beauty salon is called Bark & Bubbles and it's opawrated by two lovely ladies. They have two brown Cocker spaniels called Chocolate & Bree. Mom says I should socialise more with them and I try my best to make friends. Bree's a very friendly girl and she's very excited and loves to play. Erm...I get a little freaked out by rough play and I ended up hiding between Mom's legs with my tail between my legs. Embarassing huh? Chocolate is a tad bit quieter and yeah, we did try to sniff and make friends so she wasn't that bad. :)

Like I said earlier, silly Mom did bring her camera along but she really shy and snapping piktures since she didn't know if the groomers mind. Mom = shy? Oh PUHLEEZE!!! Anyhoo, she says she was afraid the flash from the camera would agitate the dawgs there. Excuses...excuses.....excuses... Too bad I can't handle the camera with my paws else I'd definately be snapping away.

There were 4 other mini schnauzers that were being groomed and they all belong to the same hooman parents! They were quite friendly too but had to be leashed up cos they had just been groomed and the hoomans were afriad that their beard would get wet after all that playing and their hooman parents won't be happy to see that.

I remember my first trip to there, it was a horrible experience. I was so nervous and inexperienced. I kept squirming and freaking out big time. The ladies couldn't even put me on the table to work on my manicure. To make things more interesting, I had to erm..release my anal glands all over the poor groomer. Oopsie.....anyhoo, that was the first time and last time I did that. At least they look happier to see me now. hahaha

We walked past this stone table & chair under one of the HDB blocks. Hoomans enjoy sitting down and relaxing there sometimes. I'm checking out the floor for leftovers....hehe...

Nope - nothing good for me to eat at all. I wonder what those white specks on the floor are. Birdie poop?

Walking home. Mom lets me lead the way so she can get a good pikture.

Checking out the corners. Don't ask me why I do that I just do. It's a habit I think.

This is a video of me walking Mom back home. Yeah, I have a good sense of direction and so I insist Mom follows me closely behind in case she gets lost.

On a side note, Mom lent her camera to her sister and her Mom for their holiday trip so she may not be able to get piktures of me over the next 2 weeks!! She did say she wanna bring me out to some dog run - something along the lines where she can unleash me and let me run around in an enclosed area. I've never been to one before. Hopefully, Dad brings along his big kick-a** camera and we'll be able to get some nice shots.

Mom also ordered some food and stuffs for me and it should be delivered tomorow!! Can't wait to see what goodies I'll be getting!!

Hey Luckie, I bet you would be snapping the pictures away if you can use the camera. So your fur is short now? I hope you'll post pictures of your trip to the dog park

p.s you still haven't change your comment yet. Do you have problem finding where to edit?

Are you going to bishan dog run? I was there recently and the ground near the gate was so muddy! So I didn't go into the dog run.

I wihs my ladies camera would go on vacation, I hate that darn thing. When it sits on a table I stare and stare at it, imagining many ways to destroy it!

Hey Luckie!
Sasha has to get groomed a lot. She doesn't have pretty fur like your's. She has that wirey hair and it drives Mom crazy because she gets stuff stuck in it all the time. Sasha goes to a place called Glamour Paws Off Broadway. I go to get my nails trimmed sometimes and they're really nice there.
Running free off your leash is a blast! I love when Mom and Dad take off my leash and I get to run free - as long as I stay close.

I wish my mom would take me to a spa! I think I need it!

Lorenza said...

Why we have to get our nails clipped? I hate that.
The same thing happens with my mom. She thinks she takes me for walkies but I decide where I want to go and for how long I want to go. Just don't tell her!
I like your pictures.
Besos y abrazos

Hey Luckie!
What kind of food are you getting delivered? Chinese food? Hehehe! That's mom's favorite thing to get delivered, anyway. She always eats the same thing: curry chicken and vegetable lo mein. BOOOOORRRINNNG!

You are so lucky you get to go to the salon so much. Must be fun!

We want more pictures of you Luckie! You are pretty! We are sure you will get used to the other doggies. It just takes a little bit of practice.

Yeah I go to sentosa every other week on Sundays. I go by taxi, as my mummy has sold off her van last year. If you get messy at the beach, you can take a shower before you go home.

My mama grooms me with the help of grandma, and I only been to the groomer once. Your fur-coat looks shiny!

Oh, I hate being groomed & bathed by the professionals at the groomer's!!! I hate it! I went to the groomer's once & had a good bath. But then she blow3ed me with this 10,000 watts hair dryer! The hair dryer was practically blowing the water off my hair! Not drying it like normal hair dryers do... I hate it!

Love licks,
