What The Fluff?!?

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie.  So there we were this morning, being very good puppies, helping Mom and Dad get some road work in, when Mom said something about "doing something" when we got home.  She didn't say out loud exactly what she was talking about.  Frankly, it sounded sneaky, and that's never a good thing with our mom.

"This can only mean one thing for me and you, Ragnar."
"It could be something fun, Maggie!"

Yeah.  "Something fun."  Only if you consider a shower and a blow-dry "something fun"!

Anyway, I got my shower first, then sat out on the deck with our dad while Ragnar had his shower.  Mom decided to give me more time in the Kansas wind to get a little dry, and spent 10 minutes with Ragnar and the Master Blaster.  TEN MINUTES.  And he was dry!  That's a record, I think.

She used the Master Blaster on me for half an hour, then Ragnar came over to check on me.

"Sheesh, Mags!  You're still soaking wet!"
"I know.  Isn't it great?!?"

What can I say?  I have my daddy Juarez's thick, lovely coat!

"Keep that Master Blaster going, Mom!"

I have to admit - it sort of feels good to get all of the loose fur blown out!  Here's a short video of me in the fluff cycle:

After an hour, Mom declared me "dry enough".  Ragnar and I posed for a quick shot out on the deck:

Polargold's Einherjar and me (Polargold's Margaret Thatcher) - looking mighty fluffy!

We did zoomies in the living room, then went out front for a portrait:

"Do we get cookies now, Mom?"
"Yes, Ragnar!  You were both VERY good puppies!!!"
"Yay, cookies!!!"

So ... it wasn't what I'd really call "fun", but it did feel good.  And now we're both super fluffy!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher


  1. We always love watching how chillaxed you are in front of the Master Blaster, Maggie!

  2. I hope and purr you both get an extra cup of food tonight. I just love, as LLB said, what good Working Dogs you are...working for treats right?
    Hugs Cecilia

  3. We are all in need of some de-fluffing too. Misty will have to wait a while, but we feel a spa day in our futures. Your Master Blaster is a lot quieter than ours. Ours sounds like a freight train and none of us like it one bit.

    You both look beautiful. Maggie, Misty and Timber have that super thick coat too. Lightning's is thick but more silky than dense.

    Woos - Lightning, Misty, and Timber

  4. Why do our parents always think baths are fun?

  5. You both look pretty spiffy now! And I think that blow dryer looks FUN!

  6. You two look great all fluffed up.

  7. You look great. We are grateful bathing isn't something we have to do often.
