Duke's new do

Yesterday was the big trip to VIP Grooming Salon for Duke.
I pulled out the short leash and boy was he ever ready to go.

I couldn't get the little guy in focus. He was so excited that we were going. He was at the door all a wiggle with anticipation.

Come on mom, back this car out of the driveway and lets get this show on the road.  

Just so you all know, when I dropped him off I asked about taking pictures. I explained that all of Duke's adoring fans would be disappointed if I chickened out. Of course she was more than happy to let us get a shot or two. She even tried to get Duke's attention so I could get one in focus. 

Back home again and Duke is showing off his new look and his stylish bandanna. He also walked out with a little bag of home made dog treats. For me there was a handy dandy business card fridge magnet and a card good for 50% off on grooming after 5 visits. 
So the verdict on the new groomer.
  • made Duke look very handsome
  • gave Duke yummy goodies
  • she's very close to home
  • has convenient hours
  • got my attention with the 50% off card
Yep, we've got a new groomer. Heck Duke may even get there more often now.
So if you think that Vickie did a good job on Duke, why not stop on by her facebook page and tell her Duke sent you :)


  1. Adorable pics!

    And, oh I like the new groomer, Vickie! The first thing I noticed in the pic was how clean the room was, wow!

    Loved the post and I still think Duke is the cutest (male dog) in the whole world, even ungroomed.

    hugs, xo

  2. Vickie ROCKS!! Duke looks very handsome AND happy. :)

  3. Duke looks VERY handsome! Looks like the new groomer is a hit!

  4. he looks great!! i left her a comment on her fb as well :)

  5. Duke is always handsome but we love his new do! Vickie did a great job and the little extras are very nice too. We can tell she was smitten with cute little Duke too! :)

  6. Duke, you and your new do are very handsome! Hope Vickie knows she has a famous client.

  7. I had to laugh when I saw that tail of him as a total blur! He looks handsome, indeed, and now we can see his eyes better!

  8. Duke looks more than adorable!!! I can see his little tail is wagging like crazy at the goomer, they must have gotten to be friends! Love the bandanna and the short leash with the bones on it! So gald to get this great report on the new groomer!!

  9. Oh Duke .... you certainly are the 'dude' a most marvellous gentleman 'whato dear man!'

    Ann he looks wonderful and so well behaved ..... :)

  10. He looks great! She did a fantastic job and probably loved every minute with Duke!

  14. Duke, you look very handsome :)
    Oh, I stopped by and visited her Facebook page. It looks like you hit the jackpot with this groomer.

  15. That's a good job, Duke looks great and happy :)

  16. How does that saying go again? The only difference between a good haircut and a bad haircut is about 3 weeks *laugh*. Thankfully, I don't think the Dukester will have to wait this one out - two thumbs way up for your handsome (and well groomed) boy.
    This lady sounds like a keeper to me. I'm betting it's like us with farriers; when you find a good one, make like glue and stick with them! ('cause they are rare ;o)

  17. Okay, I went over to her page and left a comment, and it was a good one, too! I'll put it on your bill.

  18. Vicki did a great job!
