Before and After

Ta Da! I went to a new groomer yesterday! You like?

You'd think I'd choke myself sleeping this way in my bucket. This is my "before" picture.

Oh boy! No more hairy face and ears. Woot Mon! Pay no attention to my snaggletooth look. I lost that bottom tooth in a fair fight with a fence. It was a noble act.

Oh boy! No more hairy face and ears. Woot Mon! Pay no attention to my snaggletooth look. I lost that bottom tooth in a fair fight with a fence. It was a noble act and very Scottie-like. This is my “after” picture.

Actually, you can’t tell much of a difference can you? Try this little movie on for size. You might get a better idea if how great I look – if you can get past the peep being silly.

Overheard at My House:

“Wow! Doesn’t he look great!”

“He sure does!”

“How’d it go? OK I guess?”

“Oh yeah, she was very nice and very careful. I appreciated that so much. And guess what.”


“I had to go back out to the car so I asked Stuart to sit, stay and wait until I got back.”


“Do you know when I got back to the grooming area he was still sitting there?”

“Not very Scottie of him was it?”

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!

    Oh, boy, Stuart, you look like a million bucks! Great job! We think the new groomer did a wonderful job and you must have been very well behaved! Both of you must have been a little nervous since it was the first time. Have you seen yourself in the mirror yet? We think your peep found a keeper with this groomer.

    Oh boy, Stu! You look Scott-tastic, and even younger! So do you think that you will be keeping that groomer even though she is kinda far away? You are so handsome! We’ll bet that you turned heads of people passing in cars!
    Love and kisses to a very HANDSOME and well-behaved Scottie Ladie!

Course ya look great, butt Ma and I think ya always look verra handsome 👍 So Ma wants ta know where did ya have to travel to for the day of spiffing? Well, ya can tell us more later, once yer rested up an all from the trip. Oh yea, I was supposed to get my furs cut today, butt Ma is so anxious ’bout Wakeen ? that she says she has to relax first. She’s got That Right! Not Touching ME if she’s all wrung up and jittery-am I right??? 👀✋😡

    • HEY! Steer clear of that WAKEEN!!!!! You’re too close for comfort my friend! Stay away from the sharp implements if the peep is jittery!!!!! You’re always right!

      You can check out the groomer gal here:

      It takes Us about a half hour to get there – one way. Not too, too bad. AND SHE HAND STRIPS!!!!!! Plus, she’s very nice. Her place is very clean and very quiet. She only does a few dogs a day. Not a gazillion. I mean really. A gazillion? With moi around? I think not.

  10. Gosh Stuart, the groomer did a great job and you look happy a and relaxed. Guess you will be going back for future needs?

    I know why you’re smiling. The ordeal is OVER! The biggest change was to Her bank account. I’d fly away if They tried to do that to me. They don’t clip my wings and figure with Kali and Kaci, taking my ability to fly leaves me defenseless. So, my peeps, don’t even try it. Just SQUAAAAAAWKing…

  13. You look grreat, Stuart! Very distinguished.

    Stuart! it was VERY successful! She did a four star out of four stars job and I can tell by looking at you that you were not traumatized at all. You look very relaxed. ❤
