When Susi from DogKnobIt and I asked if we could dogsit the Eukanuba VP of Canine Communications, Pawl Griffin, for a bit at the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship, I’m not sure what they were thinking when they agreed. I’m glad they did, though. Because we had a ton of fun.
He’s a petit Basset Griffon Vendeen, but we decided to see what would happen when we asked breeders of other types of dogs for grooming advice. (For the record, that brilliant idea was Susi’s. I thought we should take him to a tattoo parlor.) So we visited a sheepdog, an Afghan, a Yorkie, a hairless terrier, and a few others. Here’s the result:
I realized after I posted the video that his name is spelled “Griffin”, but it took so dang long to upload the thing I didn’t have the heart to redo it and set myself back another hour and a half. So please forgive me the typo.
Upon seeing the video, my husband couldn’t restrain himself from commenting on how much he wished we had a boom mike. A boom mike. Well, this is what happens when you’re doing the iReporter guerilla stuff with a Flipcam. Think of it as the authentic dog show cacophanous experience.
So even if you think it’s terrible, or crummy, or even just bleh, lie to me and say you loved it. I’m fragile. Stick around for the outtakes at the end- I think they’re my favorite part.
