This month, the humans are oh-so-busy preparing their Porsches for the Carlsen Concours on August 7. As in so many other areas of life, the best plan is to always be "show ready!"

It begins with keeping oneself in tip-top shape and constant care. On a daily basis, I request a brushing, damp-towel bath, and head-rub to keep me relaxed and my coat lustrous. Sometimes, my humans claim to be busy, but I simply insist! Thankfully, they have learned that no peace is to be had until these most-important steps are completed.

Here's a gentle reminder to your humans that attending to your needs is always the top priority!
