Grooming Day today!

Hi all, hope you all had a fabulous weekend. It's Louis here, I thought I'd hijack the blog for a change as that big brother Dex usually get's to do all the barking around here. 

Today was grooming day and as usual she had the flashy box out. SHE says I am the best dog ever to groom as I stand still like a statue and don't budge - the only reason I don't budge is that I want to keep my important pieces intact!!  Anyway, not only did she take a before and after but she got a little 2 minute video of me playing statues so here they are:

Before - personally I quite like the Beatnik look!
Well, I think I deserved a medal for that - the whole grooming including SCISSORS took well over an hour and I got maybe 4 biscuits throughout - NOT enough, I'm holding out for more next time, this is me after, as you can see I'm right fed up now and just want to get down and roll about! 
After.....Do you think I'll get a girlfriend now?

So, that was my day, we did have a great run in the woods afterwards and I managed to scare off two German Shepherd dogs by barking at them so this new haircut must give me a certain air?

Our Mom is not yet forgiven for continual flashy box use so as Frankie has suggested we're going to post a silly photo of her on Wednesday to get her back.

Don't forget to send your Summer photo's in by Thursday if you haven't already. We have some wonderful entries from all around the world, if you have a second one you want to send that's fine, just make sure you let us know which one you want in the competition - we'll publish them all though.

Love and Licks, Louis xxx

Wow you are a very good boy for grooming! I do not behave well, but I hate it when I get a good stink going & then my people just wash it all off!

My Louis you look like eye candy for some girl. Maybe though you got to show some moves around them.
But what do I know, I don't have a girlfried either.

Rubie said...

OOOoooo - I had to leave the room when mum was watchin' that video - I hate my groomin' time - we haven't had to endure one of those for a few months because it's winter here - that's why I'm looking so wooly! I don't stand still - I like to make it as difficult as possible for my peeps - one day they will get the message and stop doing it ......right???! That's what I'm hangin' out for!

Tail Wuggles, Rubie.

PeeS: You guys were very observant over my hair style during the "dried cranberry" post - Those pictures were taken a few months ago while my ma was doin' some bakin'. ;-)

Mr. Pip said...

The girl doggies are going to be chasing you down the street! Watch out!

You mean you stand still at the groomers? I have been known to throw a big fit, especially when they try to trim my nails. Don't touch my feet, peeps!

Your pal, Pip

Maggie and Mitch said...

You are a very good boy on the grooming table, Lou! Mom says that we both like to sit down way too much and I can get away with it because I'm an old lady!
You look so handsome!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Magic said...

Oh Louis I think you're gorgeous before & after grooming. You're lucky you only get clippered though - I'm 'hand-stripped' and that takes hours as the long hairs are pulled out with a stripping knife. Sounds scary but not painful just takes a long time :-( Love from Magic xx

Dotty said...

You are so good- Alfie won't even keep still for me to brush him!The girl doggies will be queueing up!

Sugar the Golden Retriever said...

Woof! Woof! You guys looks PAWSOME ... for your girlfriends. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

BTW: send you an email. Golden Woofs

SAS....Sammy, Andy and Shelly said...

Louis, you are totally pawsome!!!!!!! We would all have ran from the sound of that clipper!!!!!! :)

You look very handsome, although we really liked the Beatnik look, too, but imagine the buzz cut is cooler for you this summer.


Bessie Mac said...

Looking good, Louis!

Tessa the Maltese said...

Hey Lou I don't understand why the girls have not been chasing you down the stree either like Pip said! Heck if I were closer I would be chasing you down the street!

woos, Tessa

Bailey Be Good! said...

You look snazzy! I'm not sure how I'll look with a hair cut. ;)

Woofs & hugs,

~Bailey (Yep, I'm a girl!)

Ricky the Sheltie said...

You look stunning after your haircut!

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

How could anyone 2 or 4 legged resist you?? I think our little 'Scottie Todd' could take a few lessons from you--I gave him a bath yesterday and you would have thought I was torturing him--Come to think of it, maybe to him I was...

Jazzi said...

Jazzi and Addy
