Get ready (Saturday)


Get set (yesterday)


GO! (today)


We were going have this presented by the lovely Miss Kaci who had her first ever grooming yesterday, but she was too embarrassed and wanted inside to hide.

  6. Pretty blossoms indeed.

    Our Little Bit is at the grommers right now. She likes to get her bath and have a spa day.

    Have a woof woof day Miss Kaci. My best to your peeps. 🙂

  7. So fluffy! I want to rub that dog;s belly. I don’t want to rub that cactus thing.

  8. Wow on both counts. Have a terrific Tuesday and happy St Patrick’s Day.

  9. Breathtaking cactus; I can only imagine the fragrance. Kaci looks adorbs and in no time will feel like the princess she is with her new ‘do.’ 🙂

  10. What a cutie is Miss Kaci.

    Have a wonderful day. 🙂

  11. That blooming cactus is gorgeous! Love the shots leading up to the full blooms, too.

    From what we can see Kaci looks very good. But we all know how embarrassing it is when your fur is stolen. Of course, we’re not too sure about birds losing feathers….

  12. OOooooooo! Bee-you-ti-ful! Of course.

  13. Why Kaci, you look as lovely as a cactus bloom!

    Edgar and his mum

  14. Wow I had no idea that a cactus could produce something so pretty. Kaci, did the groomer steal all your furs or just take a little?

    Aroo to you,

  15. Awww Kaci, groomin are da worst. My momma does mine and I tries to bite her for it.

    Dat cactus are pretty.

  16. Oh Kaci…….we know it’s not the bestest thing in the world…but look how much cuter you are…beside it will be coller!

    The Mad Scots
    Pees; we are getting ready to have our winter furs removed!

  17. You look fabulous darling. The cacti looks good too.

  18. OMD, you look FABulous Kaci!!! Butts, I know what you mean abouts gettin groomed…butts at least you have a professional do it…less chance of ear-mangling!
    And, if it’s been as hot there, as here, I would imagine it’s lots cooler!
    Those blooms are amazin’!!! Our hanging cactus hasn’t bloomed yet, *sigh*
    Happy St. Patty’s Day!
    Ruby ♥

    • It actually hit 90 yesterday! However, I’d rather be responsible for my own grooming. It’s natural, like the cactus knowing when to flower.

  19. Those flowers are gorgeous. Do they have a scent?
    Now Kaci, about this feeling naaaakid business, it will pass butt in the mean time play it up for all it’s worth and with any luck there will be extra green beans dished out in an attempt to win you over once again.
    Wally & Sammy
    PeeS: We think you look lovely.

  20. Da cacti is so purdy when dey bloom. Poor Kaci… I feels yer pain… dey stole yer furs! Why did dey do dat??? Allergeez steals my furs… And dey waterboarded ya, too, didn’t dey??

    Dat’s just not right!!

  21. I know how you feel Kaci… I see the fur stealers every 6 WEEKS… (unless the peep forgets to take me).
    Did it make you itchy? The clippers always make me itchy!!

  22. You look maahhvelous Kaci! Hope it wasn’t too traumatic!
    Alyssa, Mr. Fox & Scruffy
