Best in Show

I was thinking today of doing a post, another set of plant close-ups and maybe a few shots of the kids looking cute. Redundant…repetitive, I know. I haven’t been posting too often and in that vein I was going to write a post called “Bare-Minimum Gardening” because that is pretty much the theme of the garden this year. The other themes of the garden are “Only the Strong Survive” and “Hopefully We Get Some Pumpkins” and “Herbs, Weeds and a Few Other Things”. You get the idea. Anyways, those taglines pretty much sum up the “Bare-Minimum Gardening” post I guess. Not exactly groundbreaking (though it was meant to be encouraging to would-be gardeners); so the topic may resurface…stay tuned (but don’t hold your breath- ha!)

Anyway today we decided to go to Purina Farms (mostly to pet the bunnies) and I almost didn’t bring the camera.  We’ve done the cow milking there, seen the cute dog show (and pet the bunnies/pigs/chickens) and I’ve posted the pictures. It’s a nice easy place to walk around (and we live close to it) but again…redundant. I love a good re-run but I didn’t plan to take pictures…I mean, we don’t have to go do something new just because I want new fresh content, right?!

And then we stumbled upon this…

Ok so I know I’m yukking it up but these groomers were obviously really hard working and talented people; so more power to all involved with these dog-centric arts!

We had never been in this facility before; it is very nice and huge!

    Oh. My. God. I would never have believed it if I hadn’t seen it. They actually dye their fur??? These poor beasties. Seriously, The King AND Minions? My Little Pony?
    Best In Show (a favorite of mine as well) doesn’t even come close to the outrageousness here. They need to make a sequel!
    Thanks for giving us an amazing “Only in America’ moment. :) (SO glad you brought your camera!)
