Guinea pig gets a haircut.

Nice weekend so far. We scraped a lot of slush/ice/snow mixture from the walk and driveway and pushed the glacier from the van (see previous post for pictures). We did some decluttering. I found a new way to get the kids to help pick up. I got a couple of laundry baskets and told Sean the white one was for his things and the blue one was for Sierra's things. I think they thought it was a game. Hey, whatever works. Today we had church and we've played with play-doh this afternoon.

As some of you may know, I often cut my own hair. Well today, we decided to groom the guinea pig. A haircut was in order. It was quite a feat. As you can see, she was quite a mess when she came over..

We put her in the salon chair (Littlest Pet Shop), spun her around and took a look. Ewww, what a mess. Dead ends.... damaged hair from color. We knew this was going to be a challenge, She was ready for a change as you can see by her big smile.

We started with a shampoo. Then we cut all the old and damaged hair away. She was happy to return to her natural color.

I think the results were spectacular. She looks like a new guinea pig, wouldn't you agree? The whole effort left everyone hungry. She was ready for a snack and very glad to be able to see what she was eating without all the hair in her eyes.
