I got groomed....

As if my life wasn't boring enough because of my muscle strain, I got groomed yesterday AND today (you all know how much I hate to be groomed right??). Mum clipped me yesterday, and today was the scissor work.

(I had one groomed leg in this photo, the rest still un-groomed)

Yes, I spent 3 hours on the grooming table while STINKY taunted me, (mum: you had breaks in between)

He taunted me from every direction, any way he could.....

He taunted me again and again by basically having a lot of fun by himself, and that was just totally ... WRONG!

See, this is a blown up picture of STINKY from the picture above. What was he doing looking at me with his butt up in the air?? Of course, I looked away, I was too smart for his trap.

I tried to distract myself (from STINKY's taunting) by looking up at the sky.

I like to watch planes go by. I know the words "PLANE PLANE"; whenever mum says those words, I automatically look up to the sky and try to find the air plane.

I laid down for a bit, still trying to ignore whatever STINKY was doing,

but I saw he took my PINE CONE!!!

Once again, that was just WRONG! It's MY pine cone!

Finally, when mum finished butchering, she wanted pictures (of course...), do you see how pleased I looked???

What's worse was that mum wanted to take a picture of me and STINKY together. She told us both to "STAY", which we both did, but STINKY wouldn't look at the camera!!!

He obviously didn't understand the way mum works. The longer it takes her to get a good picture, the longer we would have to sit there posing!!!

I warned that stoooopid STINKY, I wanted him to pose nicely so we could be set free.

I gave him a stern "Sunshade LOOK", (comes from the corner of my eye)

And his face turned this way... take a good look,


(mum: which totally defeated the purpose of your warning LOL. That's Jaffa's submissive face BTW)

Finally, STINKY got my message and mum was satisfied... WHEW!

SIGH... story of my sad life......

(mum: what a drama queen!!)

Oscar's mummy and daddy said...

You look good Sunshade, though not sure it was worth the aggro of seeing Jaffa running around teasing you!

At my class on Sunday there were about 15 Dales, & cos their mums & dads were faster than mine at stripping, they kept getting playtimes while I was stuck on the table, grr!

Oscar's mummy and daddy said...

Oooh, you posted to my blog as I was posting to yours, how spooky!

Mum think the white hairs are dead hairs that were clippered back in Feb, ones that would have come out if I had always been stripped. There are very few & far between. We will see if they stop appearing now we are underway with the stripping.

I think it was Ralf in the background on the video - nice job he did of helping me out, hey?! He didn't seem to be minding the stripping, brave dog!

When does Stinky get his turn on the table?

Jackson's J1 and J2 said...

You look lovely with your new 'do. It's my turn for a haircut on Saturday. Why do they chop off our hair when we're just getting nice and dirty? J x

Boo Casanova said...

Hey Sunshade, your mum really can do a good job. Your leg hair is so straightly trimmed. You should see my Mama work and you will be 100x glad and appreciate what your Mum does.

Quinvale AstaLaVista Baby said...

G'day Sunshade, You did a real good job of ignoring Jaffa and you've got one hard stare going on. I don't think I could ever manage that! xxx Asta

Rachel said...

Oh Sunshade - good for you for putting up with all that grooming! I don't know how you have the patience....I hate being groomed and I only have to put up with having a comb over a few times a week!

What a bad boy Stinky was for taunting you....when it's his turn to be stuck on the table you can get your revenge!


Anonymous said...

Sunshade, you are bee-yoo-ti-ful. Just gorgeous!
But the faces Jaffa - er, Stinky - made were too funny. Thanks for the laugh, Stinky.

Luckie Girl said...

Hey Sunshade,
You are so bootiful and I think your Mom did a great job grooming you. :)
Stinky's really very cheeky huh?

The Airechicks said...

Miss Sunshade

Joe Stains said...

sunshade, I feel your pain everyday with the pesky young dogs. But you looked so pretty when you were done being groomed that I think it was worth the tough time you had!

umekotyan said...

Hey Sunshade, you look great now after the grooming. So bad of Stinky to have fun in front of you. How come your fur is of lighter color then Stinky?

Your Mummy is really good at grooming you look great. Stinky is mean and you are such a lovely sister.

3 hours? Oh my that is awful and the whole time to have to have stinky taunting you. I hope you got even with him when you were done.

Pippin, the Gentle Pup said...

I hate to be groomed too, Miss S. AND I have three little stinky boyz who taunt me however they can. Do you bite him? That works for me

Oh Miss Sunshade!
I'm still too immature like Stinky! Someday mum says I'll grow up, but I plan on being a puppy stinker for as long as possible!
