Yesterday was Spa Day! Lucy & I went to a new place this time, since we’ve never been to a groomer around here. Mom called Petco first, but they said I was too old…they don’t do grooming on any dogs over 11! How rude is that? Anyway, we went to Metropawlitan Pet Boutique on Military Drive.
After 3-1/2 hours Mom came to get us and I was still on the table. She specifically asked for them to have me done in under 3 hours, so the lady made the appt for 8:30 in the morning. Apparently, being there at the crack of dawn didn’t do anything to get me done faster.
Hannah got to stay home and get her hair trimmed and nails done…she’s not High Maintenance like me and Lucy… and that wiry hair of hers is easy to trim.
Naturally, they hit a drive thru, this time it was Jack-in-the-Box, and picked up a Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger for us to share. It helps relieve the trauma of the day.
Did you say Bacon Cheeseburger?
We haven’t had much luck with a Gate Guard job. Things are still pretty slow in the oilfield, with the price of oil going so low this year. We’ve been here for 6 weeks and have had a couple job possibilities, but none have worked out yet. Our Gate Guard company called today and said they could put us in the company RV Park, down in Tilden, and use us for relief work on guard shacks, if they need us, but they still don’t have anything right now. We decided to stay here in San Antonio until they have something more permanent. Mom & Dad are enjoying hanging out with their friends, playing cards & visiting…which Gate Guards don’t really get to do much. If nothing comes up in the next few weeks, I guess we’ll look at some other options for a winter job.
