This is Arnold. Look at the cuteness!!! Arnold is a sweetheart and is adorable. Arnold has his own Instagram page called @arniesaurusrex You should follow Arnold. ❤️

Toupee Tuesday!! Carl has been hard at work these past couple weeks. He's been processing all the produce he harvested from his garden. So far, he's pickled beets, carrots, garlic, pickles(obviously), and he's made borscht, salsa, and some potatoe/dill soup. He's currently waiting for his pumpkins to finish ripening so he can make go's own canned pumpkin. Fall is one of Carl's favourite times of year. Mostly because he gets to spend his days in the kitchen making all these yummy preserves. One time he tried making his own applesauce. But, he tried to multi-task a little too much that day, and forgot about the applesauce cooking on the stove. Well, the sauce ended up exploding all over the kitchen! It was even in Carl's ears! Needless to say, Carl spent the rest of the day washing apple off of everything.. #toupeetuesday #orangekitties #catsofinstagram @theellenshow

Toupee Tuesday! (In the voice of David Attenborough) Carl, the great orange chubbycat, is currently protecting his recent catch. For centuries, chubbycats have been roaming the terrain of North America. Their superior hunting and tracking skills far exceed most other predators. Their saggy belly acts as a scent collector. The Chubbycat will drag it along the ground, then check for any nearby prey when they roll over to retrieve belly rubs. They use their big green eyes to lure their food into their bowls at meal time. Chubbycats are also known to use their robust derriere to smother their prey before devouring it. Or, they'll also use it to punish anyone who denies them snuggles... #toupeetuesday #orangekitties #catsofinstagram #carlcat @theellenshow

Oh my goodness, this looks super cute! Obviously nothing like a real dog show, but entertaining for children to watch!

Toupee Tuesday! Ever since Carl finished his perm last week, he hasn't been able to stop reminiscing about all his favourite fashion trends from the 80's. Here he is longingly thinking about shoulder pads and matching neon wind suits. All while listening to Poison or Twisted Sister as he thinks about back combing his wispy bangs on his poorly bleached hair.#toupeetuesday #orangekitties #catsofinstagram @theellenshow

Toupee Tuesday!! Carl is sporting this beautiful toupee of luscious curls today. He recently finished a class on perms for his hairstylist course. He's always been so envious of the curly haired pups that come into our salon. So he wanted to practice his new skills and make himself some bouncing locks. He's quite impressed with how they turned out, and has been flaunting them around the salon all day. #toupeetuesday #orangekitties #catsofinstagram @theellenshow

Toupee Tuesday!! Carl has been watching the Tour de France lately. Not only does he quite enjoy biking, but he also spent a few months touring the French countryside. One of his fondest memories of his time there was when he found a tiny bakery on the outskirts of Toulouse. He would wake up early every morning to get a fresh baguette and enjoy it with some of his favourite cheese while sipping coffee. He would then stroll through the quite side streets and visit with all the local cats. They would discuss their upcoming adventures together, and often share a glass of wine in the evening while listening to some local musician playing in the closest square.
He also spent some time volunteering at a lavender field while he was there too. When he was on his breaks, he would sneak into fields and roll allover the leftover plants that had already been harvested. He stayed in a beautiful cottage close to where he volunteered. So he was fortunate enough to enjoy a lovely bike ride twice a day while he was there. Being able to go to the local market in a nearby village to purchase fresh food was an added bonus.
Carl eventually ventured over to the southern coast of France to try and catch some rays. The beaches were always busy though. He soon learned that while it was quite beautiful there, it didn't compare to the quiet of the peaceful times he had in the countryside. @theellenshow check out my cool cat! #toupeetuesday #orangekitties #gingercat #catsofinstagram #bobandcarl

When you finally get a chance to brush your own dog.. Poor Raven was looking a bit homeless! The old saying, the shoemakers daughter never has shoes, is sometimes true. She's looking much better now though!

Everyone. Meet Archie! His chair is coarse everywhere but the top of his head. Which is super curly! He's so flipping cute!!

Sorry in advance for the long post!
My little guy Elliot and I went to Champion Grooming Show in Ontario to compete to gain points to hopefully be on Groom Team Canada again. This was his first time ever flying, staying in a hotel, and going to a grooming competition. And I am so happy to say he handled everything wonderfully! He's my nervous boy when it comes to new things and strangers due to anxiety issues. But, with the help of Dr. Orchard at Orchard Vet Clinic, he has started to come out of his shell. I promised him that if he showed any signs of being uncomfortable at the show, I would have walked out of the ring. His comfort is always first. HE WAS A ROCKSTAR!! The fact that he relaxed so quickly in multiple new situations, was HUGE!! He even made some new human friends. He actually jumped up on my friends lap after only meeting her less than two hours beforehand! ❤️💕💖😍
This was also my first time competing with a Welsh Terrier in their correct grooming trim. Handstripping. It's a technique that involves removing the dead hair that's ready to be romoved to make room for new hair by plucking or pulling VS clipping or scissoring it off. It's what helps Terriers keep that hard coat that protects them from the elements. Elliot and I won FIRST PLACE!! I was over the moon! This type of grooming is extremely technical, and involves sometimes more than weekly maintaining. That's why a lot of people with Terriers choose to clip the coat instead. It's very high maintenance. Clipping it isn't bad by any means. It's just easier for someone who isn't showing their Terrier.
I also competed with an Irish Setter in the Sporting dogs class, and placed third! And a SUPER FLUFFY Cocker Spaniel in the Salon Freestyle class (which means you can use a purebred or mixed breed dog, and groom it in and style you prefer. As long as it's not in the traditional groom if it's purebred) and also placed third!
I love competing and I'm so thankful to have such amazing girls at the salon to take care of the place while I'm gone, and wonderful clients that cheer me on and give support!

Toupee Tuesday!! Carl is looking a little haggered today. He arrived home pretty late last night after flying in from London. Obviously he was there to attend the Royal Wedding. He was one of the first guests to be invited.
He says the wedding was beautiful. But, the best part was the reception. It turned into such a party that Carl returned home WITHOUT his tuxedo.. This is mostly because he convinced a bunch of fellow guests to go streaking through the Royal gardens! He's refusing to tell us who joined him though. After all, Carl is not a gossip monger. #toupeetuesday #orangekitties #gingercat #catsofinstagram @theellenshow
