What to do today?

Ralphie wonders…

What should I do today?




Go for a swim?


Go for a walk and look for Petoskey stones?


Make a sand castle?


Go wine tasting?


Go to the grocery store?


Put my shirt back on?


Watch the sunset?


Go back up the the house?


How about I take a cue from this sign?


Yes. That is what I will do!

It’s summertime, so Ralphie needs a summer cut!

Today was what I like to call, Ralphie Grooming Day

We coax him into the tub for a good scrub, then dry him with a hairdryer (low heat of course!) and then give him a haircut using clippers and scissors.

Since the weather was so nice today, we were able to take him outside and put him on the picnic table—by the way, this technique is so much easier on our backs, compared to the kitchen floor method!



Surprisingly, Ralphie was completely agreeable with our plan!

For some reason, we think this was exactly what he wanted to do today…







He’s not certain if he likes his legs looking so skinny, but this way he will stay cool outside and won’t need another haircut for a while. (Pretty nice for us, his personal grooming team.)

Happy Sunday, or what we like to call, Ralphie Grooming Day!
