Well, I'll try to make this long story short. I left Arabelle at the groomers around 9 a.m. and the groomer (Annie) asked me to pick her up at 1:00. It was like leaving my child at the babysitter's the first day. I was a wreck! I worried about her all morning. I was there to pick her up at 12:45 and anxiously waited for 1:00. The door was locked to the shop because the owner was the only one working and she was in the back of the building. She has a darling retail shop in the front and I guess she was afraid of someone coming off the street and stealing merchandise while she was grooming. I waited and waited and around 1:30 I started to panic. I kept thinking that maybe she left and I wouldn't be able to get Arabelle. You all know by now that I'm crazy about my corgi girls and very protective. I keep thinking about my baby being in there scared and tears starting falling. At about 1:45, Annie and Arabelle came from the grooming area both smiling. Arabelle looked like she was saying "Hi mom, what are you doing here?" Annie said "Didn't you get my message"? She left a message on my home phone that she wouldn't be ready at 1:00 and I didn't go home.
The end of the story is Annie did a beautiful job and got all the loose undercoat off Arabelle, which I've never been able to do. Tonight my granddaughter took this sweet picture of her. She is exhausted and I am too!
