Kali can fool the peeps but not this bird

The peeps decided that they had enough-it was time for Kali to go to the groomer. Kali knew what to expect and knew that the groomer always gave a report card. 30 minutes before she was scheduled to go, Kali borrowed my black pen and my roll of tape.


Evidently on the way over, Kali wouldn’t stay in the dog bed of the Scottiemobile and went down in the well in front of the driver’s seat.  In a car this size, the well isn’t big and it’s a stick shift so there are 3 pedals to be depressed and released. It was a lightly travelled country road so there wasn’t any danger. She got to the groomer and started whining more than usual.


She was left there for an hour. On the way home, she was back in the well. After arriving home she demanded treats.


The peeps wanted to see the report card. Kali had already returned my pen and roll of tape.

  1. Is that the same pup?! Nice groom job. Look-ing good!

  2. oMD OMD Kali you look SUPER… and WOW… you got a B from the Groomer??? THAT is Fabulous… So now… What was the Tape and Marker for??? You obviously had NO NEED fur changing the Grade… RIGHT???

  3. You look so very good now. Grooming is an important thing to do. You can fool the peeps, but you’ll never fool Kismet. You should know that by now.

    Have a woof woof day. My best to your peeps. ☺

  4. Kali is a sneaky little thing and you’d better not “tattletale” on her either!!!!!

    Hugs, Sammy

  5. Oh Kali, we’re so happy for your GREAT report….BOL! Just proves that anything can be fixed with duct tape!

  6. Stay away from that tape or Kismet will put it over your mouth.

  7. You look absolutely adorable. I thought that I was the only one with a stick shift car.

  8. Do your peeps have to sign your report card? Maybe you can get Kismet to scratch their names ~ Kismets got the beak to do the job.

  9. BOL so glad my groomer doesn’t have report card because I’d have to borrow your pen and tape too. I think it’s a terrier thing.

    Aroo to you,

  10. Kali, you look awesome! Kismet, you are one smart woman!

  11. Oh Kali! Just look at you! And your Christmas bandana is just aroooootiful! We don’t care what your report card says or who completed it – all that matters is that you survived the torture.

    BIG licks,
    Wally & Sammy

  12. I love your new haircut!!! …. and well even if you used tape for that report card, the groomer said you can come back… so it wasn’t that bad, right?

  13. We just love the idea of a “Report Card”. Will be making one this afternoon for those pesky pups! Kali, you look gooooorrrrrgeous!

  14. Well, the trip was very eventful! Kali looks marvelous after the groom though.

  15. How would you like to be the DOG DAUGHTER of a groomer. Yes, it’s what Mom does on the side. She doesn’t get any scotties, though. This week she had a cairn terrier that has to be sedated with benedryl before she comes, and her mom stays and holds onto while she gets her nails trimmed and hair pulled from her ears. I am always happy when Mommy gets in a paid groom…it means she isn’t eyeing me up!

  16. My groomer are my momma. So I don’t even get to fake up my report card. But I do gte to bite at my momma.
