When dogs get groomed, there seems to be some sort of obligation on the part of the groomer to finish the job with a bandanna. Considering the placement of a dog’s eyes, and her ability (or propensity) to look back, it’s obvious this isn’t done for the dog.
Usually, being a bandanna, it’s some sort of Western motif… a blueish pattern that would make you home on the range. Not yesterday. Because of Ivy’s health problems, Helaine changed groomers, going to one who would allow her to stay with, and comfort, Ivy during the grooming process.
Ivy came back with the bandanna on the right. It’s tie-dyed with a smiley face.
Maybe it’s lucky for Ivy she can’t see this one.
