If you've ever bathed a terrier before,
you know they must be
thoroughly combed out before bathing.
So Mom put a leash on Carr and was going
to take her outside to the grooming table.
(Mom was even wearing
her "professionsal" dog groomer's coat
so we knew what was about.)
About the time Mom opened the door to take Carrleigh out,
Piper zipped out onto our "inside" porch,
stood up against the door to the "outside" porch
and low and behold - it opened.
And out he went - totally ignoring the two groundhogs
who were standing in front of the granary.
Piper was off on "the great leaf chase" and
the wind was blowing so hard it was giving
him a lot of chances to chase leaves.
Mom panicked a bit, but then she decided
that Piper wasn't really trying to go anywhere
but the corner of the yard where all of the leaves were.
She went back in the house and got a leash
and her camera and proceeded to do
a little off leash photoshoot.He evaded Mom by trying
to get behind the farm trailer.
He totally tried to ignore her.
But during all of this running,
Mom got a picture that will probably
be one of her favorites of him
and will go on her website.
While Mom was photoing Piper,
Carrleigh was patiently tied to our
(as you can see in the picture,
it is strong enough for bullies,
so it should hold a Scottie, right?)
Once Piper was caught,
Carrleigh got brushed
and readied for her bath.and now she's the cleanest one!
