All this gear does add up so fast, but it pays for itself almost as quickly.I recently bought a bravura with money I got for Christmas. I consider it a gift so I feel justified with my purchase!

Isn’t it amazing? Peggy’s legs look like twigs! I was actually nervous watching her play last week. She looks so much more fragile than her dog buddies.I am always amazed at how skinny our poodles look striped down. You are doing a great job. Let us know how your nail scratching board works out. Think I might want to build one for Asta as of course he hates having his nails done - I hate doing them too. I will catch him at times chewing on his nails so it is time for a different approach.
