I love a good haircut.

I got a haircut earlier this week. It’s the first time in 5 years that I got clipped all over instead of clipped and stripped. Whew. I feel better. When my furs are all bear-like, I just don’t feel like myself. My collar gets all tight. I trip up because my paws are all furry.

The phrase “does this make me look fat?” really applies to moi when I need a haircut.

What You Learned Today:

  • I hadn’t had a haircut since before Christmas! Whew!
  • I got clipped earlier this week.
  • Not snipped. I did that when I was about a year old. Ouch. (Well, I didn’t do it, my dogtor did.)
  • Now I’m looking more like a proper Scottie. And not a little bear cub. But bear cubs are cute…and I’m pretty cute if I say so myself. Well, not really cute, handsome is more like it.
  • Ah. A hair cut is a good thing. Thank you Godmother Carol! You’re the best!

About The Scottie Chronicles

Winston welcomes you to The Scottie Chronicles - a blog that began in 2009 as a voice for Stuart, a more than memorable black, brindle and white Scottish Terrier who captured hearts around the world. Stuart passed suddenly in December 2015 from cardiac hemangiosarcoma, a nasty cancer that took him far too early. If you love Scotties, please follow along. Arroooo!

    Pippi got butchered. You look wonderful.

    It would be kind of hard getting a bubbleectomy (AKA snipped) a second time. You are so lucky to have a Godmother Carol who cares to make you look your best. But you always look your best!

    Great looking hair cut Sturat, Sidebite wants to know how you got such wonderful eyebrows, his look like a couple of short weeds over each eye, I think he is jealous. Hair cuts and grooming baths are such wonderful peep inventions.

    Oh and Stuart – you are so lucky that your furdresser does your “brows” correctly!!! My is awesome except she sends me home with bangs every single time! Grrrrrrr not that I have anything against bangs mind you…….. How do you get your furdresser person to do your brows correctly? : )

  7. Your Godmother Carol is a great person to have around – clipping or stripping – she’s one of the best!!

    Kenzie and I go Tuesday. It is a groomer that doesn’t keep us in cages. Kenzie hates grooming. We had one that had a trailer behind a truck and did it on the driveway. That groomer fired Kenzie for behavior. Now we go to the groomer’s place. When we get into the car Kenzie is OK until we make a left turn about 1½ miles from home. If we make a right turn, he’s OK but with a left turn-he knows. He starts whimpering (I’m about to pull his terrier card) and shaking and we’re only 20 miles from the groomer.

    You handsome devil. We recognize that table and will be on it soon for Nana Carol to straghten us out. We had to be groomed here in Blacksburg again since Carol is 200 miles away and it “just ain’t the same”. It will take awhile for our eyebrows to recover from our last experience here, but Nana Carol is the VERY BEST at making us look our best. Your profile is terrific!!

    Looking good there Stuart old boy. I’m due for a haircut in a few weeks myself, I love my Uncle Otto, but when he and dad take me out into the little house in the backyard and put me on the table, my patience is tried something fierce… Ah well what’s a girl to do, as the Germans say, “Schoneheit muss leiden.” (Beauty must suffer). What do you get as a treat when it is over? I get a wiener, yum yum.

    Piper MacT

    • I’ve never had a wiener. NO, wait. Yes, I have. In obedience school. That was a long time ago. I get treats from Godmother Carol, but I don’t eat them. That’s pretty weird if you ask me.

      Good luck with your haircut! Arooo, Stuart

  11. Daisy says:

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  12. Merlin & Pixie says:

    Pixie and I think you are one handsome dude! No one gives you a hair cut and bath like Auntie Carol. We just love her…………..

  13. Your beard looks even longer than before, Stuart!

  14. Hoke says:

    Must be the time for hair cuts…I got one too….and my teeths brushed and ears plucked…boy how I hate that!!!!!

  15. Douglas says:

    Stuart, I looked like a bear cub too before I got a haircut last weekend. You sure look even more handsome now!
