When Issa came home from the groomer's last week, she had bows in her hair. Issa has been to groomers alot over the years; she needs to be groomed every few months and she is nine years old so that is quite a few dates with groomers! Usually Issa comes home groomed without "ornaments" at LP's request, occasionally she will come home wearing a bandana, and once in a blue moon a misguided groomer has put her in bows.LP "rotates" groomers because she is not organized when it comes to getting Issa groomed and some times it can take a few weeks before certain groomers can take her.LP consequently sends Issa to whomever can take her with very little notice.When Issa went to the groomer's last week, she came home in pink bows.The effect was stupifying.It was as if LP had walked into a brick wall.It looked as if she saw stars, her eyes grew big, her heart probably skipped a beat; she said everything looked BETTER and FRESHER.LP couldn't seem to keep her eyes off of Issa or the sheepish grin off her face.The rest of us found it annoying and slightly creepy. We all started humming,"Why do birds suddenly appear...everytime, you are near..." whenever we caught LP stupidly gaping at Issa in order to snap her out of it, but to no avail.
Then last Saturday morning LP announced she was going shopping with Auntie J.LP explained she wanted to buy some new articles for Issa.And with that, they were gone.
One pink harness, one pink sweater and one collar with pink flowers, all for Issa.LP didn't even remember to buy the rest of us anything! Cripes.What is going on with LP?
We hope you are also "in the pink", meaning, at the pinnacle of wellbeing, this weekend.Remember to love what you have!
See you Monday.
