Allow me a moment to to first apologize for my photos. My laptop is steadfastly refusing to let me edit my photos. So rather wait another day or more to get back to this neglected blog I am plowing forward. Secondly the asterisk above True Northern California ah yes. You see in the last 15 years or so there has been a great misconception that Northern California begins at the Bay area aka San Fransisco. Nope sorry there are still many miles of California after that. And those of us who are in spitting distance of Oregon take great offense to this misconception. So when someone from Lodi tells you they are from Nor Cal not even close. And just for the record Lodi which is in Central California is a lovely fast growing city. No offense intended.
So what to do on a real day of sun and temps which leave me in shirt sleeves for only about the second time since before Christmas? I know lets groom Sherman the boy dog of my pair of livestock guardians.
Making progress it seems. I don't usually get him done in one sitting. Partially because he is a good patient boy but even good patient dogs need a break. And then there is my back and other body parts that I know well enough to know that if I am to live to groom another day a break for me is needed also. Especially on a day when I got giddy and decided not only to groom up Sherm but trim some goat feet also. So Sherman and Yarrow got a cookie and yes loosing some of that hair helped to make his butt not look so big!
