Salt and Fur

The other day, my mom wandered into a store that sold salt!
That's right, salt...but not the kind in the blue shaker with the umbrella kid.

The Meadow, Portland, Or.
100's of finishing salts from around the world.
Who knew that salt came in red, black, amber, pink, grey...
Mom bought a starter kit of Fleur de Sel (Guatemala), Sel Gris Noirmoutier, Maldon (England), Black Diamond (Mediterranean), Molokai Red and Kauai Guava Smoked (Hawaii).

They also sell fine chocolate, wine and flowers.
Ooooo the chocolate...another post!
But, nothing for dogs :(

Alas, a store for Stanzie and me!
This looks promising!
One of each please!
Ruh Roh...nobody said anything about this!
Here comes Stanzie and Dad.
Is dad going to get groomed too?

Here's a 'before shot' on the cement sofa.
Scraggly, full of weed seeds and stinky!
Come back tomorrow to see our short and sassy summer aire-dos!

Wyatt and Stanzie


  1. Well, if you had to endure that grooming session, we sure hope some of those pawesome treats made their way home with you. Bet you both look pawesome.

    Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  2. Can't wait to see your summer do's!!
    Stay cool!

  3. Those salts remind us of a funny that Mom did a couple of years ago. She was in San Diego at one of those street markets and someone was selling all these yummy-colored salts. Now, Mom doesn't do much in the way of cooking so she's certainly no expert on spices and condiments, but she does love bath and body products. Yep, you guessed it - she thought they were BATH salts! BOL She was kinda embarrassed ;\ Even now, she's looking at all those pretty salts thinking what a nice bath they would make :)

  4. In the photo of you shopping in the aisles, we spied our favorite duck jerky so we know it was a GREAT store! We love the cement sofa, and comfy!

    Chef Richard is always bringing different salts over when he cooks. As a result dad has quite a collection (momma kind of thinks it is silly but she must avoid salt anyway). Now the chocolate, that is a WHOLE 'nother story...looks like heaven!

  5. OH NO>>>> not the Miss Buzz Off Visit fur you.
    DOUBLE Oh NOOOOO... I just realized that I am gonna be going to stay OVERNIGHT at Miss Buzz Off's place next Saturday.. I hope SHE doesn't see this...
    I'll come back tomorrow... Wouldn't Miss it fur the world.
    PeeS.. I thought Salt came from the sweat on my dad's arms. Butt then What do I (Frankie Furter) know????

  6. we like your store better. Who knows what they will do to you in that salt store
    Benny & Lily

  7. I just read the Road Dogs comments and started laughing because my mom assumed they were bath salts, too!

    I can't wait to see the after shots!

    Your pal, Pip

  8. We didn't know salt came in different colors.

  9. Oohhh I cannot wait to see your summer cuts! I love having my hair short cause it sure is a lot cooler!

    Have a great weekend!

    woos, Tessa

  10. I am sure you both is gonna looks beootiful! :)

    Woofs and Licks,
    Maggie Mae

  11. Hmmmmm....rainbow salts!!!

    Hope you gots to take home a big cart full of tweets.

  12. Oh Wyatt and Stanzie how will you look. Will you still have your lovely beards. Quincey's was cut off at his groomers - by accident - Helloooooooo Can't wait to see you!

    What's mom going to do with the salts? I have a salt Christmas ornament from Salt Lake City....get it????


  13. Who woulda thought there'd be that many salts!!! My ma uses Pink "River Murray Salt Flakes" that is from here. Salt isn't really great for peeps or us kind, so be careful!!

    I think your peeps hatched that cruel plan to sneak past all those yummmers things in that shop so you are distracted enough to not read that grooming sign early on. Never mind - a little bit of pain ends up with lots of cuddles because the peeps think we smell and feel so lovely after groomin'.

    Good luck, and Tail Wuggles, Rubie.

  14. OMD, the mama would be in her happy place. We order Fleur de Sel at one of our specialty shops. A whole store of finishing salt is almost too exciting for words.

  15. Oh...Mumsie is so clueless she wasn't sure if you were talking 'bout salt for cooking or bath we're figuring it's for cooking...we have to go and google can there be so many kinds of salt???? That is totally cool!! And we love your cement sofa...

    Not sure it's comfy???

    Good luck with your Aire trims...

  16. Trying to see if we can post here from our Google acct....lately we have to post as ANON...

    What is wrong with blogger????


  17. interesting salt store. Never heard of such a thing. Very cool. :)

  18. There's pink salt?! Oh, I must do a Google search post haste!

    I bet your new summer dos will look awesome!


  19. Hi Wyatt, I didn't know you could get so many different kinds of salt, I just thought salt was salt so thanks for educating us and it just goes to show that humans can learn from dogs.

  20. We love that cement sofa but it can't be too soft to sit on!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  21. That's an interesting salt store! I didn't know salt can be so colourful!

    Can't wait to see your new summer dos! Both of you will definitely look great!

  22. A salt store? That looks interesting - but not as interesting as dog stores. Looking forward to seeing your new hair cuts - Love from Magic xx

  23. Hey Wyatt!
    Wow, neat store. My mom's drooling on the keyboard over that chocolate! I can't wait to see your new doggie doos!
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP

  24. I would have bypassed the salt and gone straight to the chocolates. :) I hope you got some pawesome treats at the pet store to make up for that trip to the groomer.

  25. It seems like you were tricked! I hope your new summer cuts keep you nice & Aire-conditioned though!

    Nubbin wiggles,

  26. Oooo I want some of those salts!


  27. That is a very interesting store your mom found. We have some pink Himalayan salt and some sea salts.
    A cement couch? Does sound very comfy.
