Climb on the Grooming Table

Last night Cathy brought up a footstool from the theater to see if it was the right height for Misha’s food and water bowl. She thought that it was too tall, but Misha started to drink from it like it was no problem. And being that Misha is only 5 months, it may turn out to actually be too small. 

Then Cathy was working on Mish getting up on the footstool like a circus elephant, which of course led me to think that it would work for Misha to climb up on the grooming table. So, I set the table up. Sure enough it worked great. Here is the video.

First “Full” Grooming Day

Today we were able to get a real test on the grooming table and arm. Misha got her bath and then we brought her upstairs to the grooming table. We still need to get a decent temporary stair to help her get onto the table, the plastic pet stairs are too narrow and will be too light weight for her once she gets a little heavier (she weighed in at 51 pounds last week at her Vet visit).

The blue Kong full of peanut butter and kibbles fresh out of the freezer kept her distracted for the whole drying and brushing time. Now we need to figure out a way for her to work at it while keeping both our hands free. Maybe as she gets more used to the table we won’t need it. LOL
