Jessica, Flash’s groomer, who cuddles and praises him while she trims and expresses, cuts and shampoos. She is so good with him that I budget for her. Trust me, I have to budget for her. But she’s worth every cent.
By the way, she calls Flash “an advanced groom”. She says she has to ask permission from him to work on his “skirt”, that fluffy bit on a Sheltie’s derriere. She tells him that it will only be five minutes, but she has to do it. She also says that he can tell time, because five minutes later he sits, and it’s all over.
