A day at the salon with Reyna

Reyna sitting on the front passenger side floor board as we were driving to the salon in Napa.

Last Friday, I took a trip to Napa to get my hair cut and colored. I decided to take Reyna along, and this first photo is of Reyna in the car as we were driving to Napa. Don’t worry, I took this picture when we were at a stop light.

Reyna at the salon laying in a down on at the side of my chair locking eye contact with me.

I have been getting my hair done by the same person for over ten years, so she has had the opportunity to meet all of the pups I have raised. When we arrived, Reyna felt the need to go over and say “Hi” like she always does. I asked Megan to ignore Reyna this time because she was trying to hard to interact with Megan. Of course that was really hard for Megan to do, but she did it :) I found a little spot in front the chair where I was sitting and I put Reyna in a down stay. She laid down and stared at me for a while. She does this thing where she just locks eye contact with me. You can see this in the photo above. But she was a really good girl and she laid there quietly while Megan put color into my hair.

Then it came time for the cutting part, and I thought for sure Reyna would be interested in all of the flying hair. But nope, she just laid there with her head down on the ground just looking at all of the pieces of cut hair, but not going after them in any way. I was really impressed, and so was everyone else in the salon. When it was finally time to leave, Reyna bounced up and was ready to roll. She is such a good girl and I am happy she did so well. I think that might be the last time she goes with me to the salon, because she is getting to recall age. I hope she knows what a joy she is to have around and how much I am going to miss her.


  1. You are brave to take your dogs when you get haircuts. I am almost certain that Kyle would try to eat the hair.

    I laughed when you mentioned taking a picture at a stoplight. I am awful and have taken several pictures while driving. In fact, I have a whole post of them this week. I probably should be a lot safer...

  2. Actually, I have always taken all of my pups with me to get my hair done. Only one of them had to "learn" to not eat the hair! Be careful taking pictures in the car. If were not careful, before we know it picture taking will be outlawed in cars just like cell phones. Haa!
