This little guy traveled around quite a bit yesterday. Notice his ears are cropped out of this photo. And I’m no where to be seen. There’s a reason for that.
Since We’re still perplexed about my grooming and stripping situation – haven’t found anybody yet – the peeps have had quite the conversations.
“So, why don’t you just learn to do it yourself?,” He says. “Just watch a You Tube video and figure it out.”
“Really? Coming from you, a professional artist, you’re suggesting that it isn’t hard and doesn’t require any type of real knowledge and expertise,” She says.
“Come on, I didn’t mean it that way, but you can figure it out,” He says. “I know you can.”
“Flattery may get you somewhere sometime, but this isn’t one of those times,” She says. “But I have to admit, his ears are getting waaay too scruffy and he can hardly see with that long hair around the inside of his beautiful eyes.”
So, you guessed it. She borrowed some rounded-end scissors from a friend with an Old English Sheepdog – wouldn’t you think those scissors would be the size of a small child? no, as it turns out, eyes are eyes no matter what size the breed – and plopped me up on the grooming table. But She does this at least once a week, so I really didn’t figure out until it was too late what it was She was doing.
Yes, my friends, the peep folded my ear together like a taco and snipped away. On both ears! THEN, She trimmed the hair from where it grows on the inside, near the nose. Gone. Poof! I can see again!
She really didn’t do such a bad job on the ears, but notice you haven’t seen a picture of moi today. And you probably won’t see any of Her handiwork.
A guy has to keep his pride in tact. Oh me.
A few important things:
- Thank you for wondering how I’m getting along since last week’s – a week ago today as a matter of fact – trauma. I’m just about back to my old self. Thank dawgness. Thank you for asking. And caring. Just took my last antibiotic.
- I still can’t bark at y’all through my email account. The peep is working on that, but if anybody knows how to get out of the “preview pane” in Outlook (the old Hotmail), bark at me in the blog comments, K?
- Hey, I think some of you may live near me, so if YOU’VE got a groomer you really like, I told the peep I’d pay for the gas so She could drive me somewhere outside of Richmond. AND if your groomer also strips, that’d be even better. I really don’t think I’d trust Her with clippers around my head, would you? No! Of course not. AROOOOO!
- Thank you Kyla Spirit for my wonderful T-Shirt! As you can see, I lent it to the humans to share. I love it so. So do They. WOOOOOOT!
