  1. She is a totally different creature! How adorable. Our delightful BIG terrier mix needed grooming and the few times we did it, she looked like an entirely different dog. You said you tranquilized her. Was that just to make it a bit easier for her, or is she kind of not used to being handled by you guys at all as she is a livestock guardian and lives with her flock?

  2. Marta looks beyond happy!! :)

  3. As Dollz said, I don't think Marta has ever looked cuter...or happier! Her new cut suits her! Thanks for sharing this example of pure happiness.

  4. that dose was just what we needed. lovely and happy shots. we have been out of the loop, so its lovely to be visiting. Love Helen, Darcy and Bingley xxx

  5. Is there anything better than a happy dog? Nope!! Gotta love Marta!

  6. Haha, those 2 photo's tell such a story!
