Time For Hair And Nails

It looks like the snow is finally all gone, at least here. I can look up at the hills and still see plenty of snow. I'm fine with it as long as it stays there.

Sandy loves the snow, of course. She rolls in it, she plunges through it when it's deep. Since I'm the one doing the shoveling and driving, I'm not as crazy about it. I'm happy to see the last of it.Sandy loves snow

Sandy takes the absence of snow in stride; now she rolls on the bare ground, and she had a nice dip in the dirty creek yesterday. I noticed today that one of us smells like a dog, and that means a trip to the dog groomer.

Sandy goes to the groomer because whenever she sees me with the dog shampoo and cotton balls, she goes right to her crate and tries to look really, really clean. "That stuff's not for me, right? I'm really, really clean!"

According to the groomer, Sandy walks right up the ramp into the tub and loves the dryer. Every time I hear this I'm tempted to check outside for pods. But she does come back looking great and with nails that don't click on the floor for a couple of weeks.

Dear fellow blogger,

My name is Bryony and I am an artist, based in Manchster, England. I graduated from a BA in Fine Art almost a year ago now, and am currently making a go of things as a (part-time!) artist, having just rented a studio here in Manchester.

My work is heavily influenced by man’s relationship with animals.
Recently I have become fascinated by the number of blogs online dedicated to pet dogs.

I have an idea in mind for a show, which would happen in early May this year, and I would like you to be a part of it!

What I plan to do with this art work is to demonstrate the depth and rich complexity of our love of animals, man’s best friend in particular. The work would involve the use of a piece of text from your blog (with your permission, of course).
I think this will be a lovely project – it will be fun, and will unite dog-lovers around the globe!

If you would be willing to take part, or for more information, please contact me through the email address above. Feel free to have a look at my previous art work on my blog.

Thanks for taking the time to read this, it is much appreciated and I hope to hear from you soon.

Best Wishes,
