Rascal the Dog Groomer

Last night when we went to bed, Rascal told me that he was going to surprise us but he wanted to visit with Santa, the elves, and reindeer.  During the wee hours of the morning, Rascal decided that he wanted to be like the “Elves and the Shoemaker” and do something so that we wouldn’t have to do it.  The next morning when we woke up, I was wondering why the dog wasn’t asleep in her bed.  This is so unlike Katie and I immediately knew something wasn’t right.

Can you guess what Rascal did last night?



When I came out of our bedroom, I found the dog frantically running around the living room.  When I looked at her, she didn’t look the same way she did the night before.  I couldn’t believe my eyes.  I walked into the kitchen and found Rascal sitting on the floor with the dog clippers in his lap.  There was hair all over the floor.  Have you figured out what he did early this morning?

Rascal found the dog clippers last night?


He also found the scissors that I use to cut hair with.


Rascal shaved the dog and gave her a bath.  What an awesome surprise?  I no longer had to give her a much needed haircut and bath.


I went to wake up the kids to show them what Rascal did while they were sleeping.  They couldn’t believe that Rascal took care of grooming the dog.  He did an awesome job and made Katie look cute.

What will Rascal do next?  Check back to find out.
