dogs and daisies

Ever wonder about those picture perfect feeds on social media? The ones that make you feel like you're doing something wrong, because your life just isn't that beautiful. Well I'm gonna get real for you on this one....

So while what you do see is dogs romping happily through dreamy fields of grass and daisies...

...I'm going to tell you that what you don't see is the careful removal of burrs from the flaxen-haired beauty's fur over the two days following this photo op.

I felt like I was in a David Attenborough narrated documentary about the grooming habits of apes as I crouched beside him carefully pulling the burrs one by one. Thankfully, he seemed to find it quite soothing, so, yeah, it actually was a blissful experience all around -- for real!


  1. These are beautiful photos! And I am so impressed you dealt with the burs. I usually just let them fall out, or take some scissors to the big nasty clumps. Best Mimi ever!
