And the big black dog went WOOF.

Well, not the big black dog shown here – but during my NH Dog Grooming Brand Photography Session I had a walk down memory lane. Times two!

First, I saw a friend from 20 years ago who it turns out is a new groomer + teacher at Grooming By The Sea!

Second, they were grooming the sweetest, quietest, most giant St. Bernard. It reminded me of when I was 6(ish) years old and at some kind of parade.. Memorial Day maybe? I think I was part of the parade as a Bluebird (knock off girl scout) … Wait I said this was a memory, not a list of things I think I remember.

Here’s what I DO remember.

I went over to see the doggy/horse and was eye to eye with him and all of a sudden.. out of nowhere.. because who could have predicted it.. he went WOOOOOOOOOOF.

Bark/slobber/hot dog breath allll up in my face.

In retrospect, of course, it’s hilarious. But I don’t think I thought so at the time. ?

This giant galumph was much quieter. He never made as single sound, but he still managed to make an impression!
