This is more like it

So mum combed out my front legs and groomed them today,

But she couldn't finish combing my hind legs...... so that will be done tomorrow...

But that's okay I guess, enough standing around for one day anyway!

The humiliation continues......

So today....... mum had time to groom my "head",

I'm not exaggerating.... she had time for the "head" only,

Just LOOOOOK at me, don't I look like I'm wearing some kind of fur collar??

Back view.

See, I'm really NOT over weight!! It's just my type of coat adds sooooo much volume to me!!!

Ohh, and she had time for my MUSCLE butt....... (let your imaginations go WILLLLLLLD BOYZZZZZZ *wink*)

Finally, I begged her to take my fur collar off... and she did.. ... So this is me now..

Is this what you look like now Stanley???

(mum: I had a hard time running the clipper through her body because she was quite matted. So I de-matted her body before trying the clippers again. Her furnishings are long ..... and matted... so I'll have to work through those mats too slowly....before I can start scissoring.....)

Please DON'T laugh

I am very behind in postings, and not really making any progress due to mum and stoopid STINKY. However, we have taken pictures, saved blog posts so when the woman gets time, she will help me (at least that's what she says). My blog will be a mess with dates all over the place but .... better than nothing I guess..

Now, what you're about to see, you must promise me you will NOT laugh.


Ok, so I've been looking quite ummm..... "fluffy".. (NOT over weight OKAYYYY?)

People have been, well I should say those who actually recognize me as an Airedale have been saying things like "WOW, that's a ..... *ahem* well fed Airedale".

One little hooman pup bluntly, and publicly yelled out to his mom, "MOM! Is that a dog???".

Aunty Maureen (STINKY #2's mom) said my muscle butt looked like a "polar bear butt" other than the colour. (mum: that meant you're cute. And I think it's more about the way you sway your big bum when you walk plus the hair I guess....)

My Veronica said to mum, "She doesn't look like Sunshade anymore.".

So finally, the woman got the point.......

Well..... partially.........

She started grooming me alright......

She clipped parts of my body, and the top of my head........

But THAT'S ALL SHE'S GOT TIME FOR!!!! (mum: for that day okay????)

How humiliating! Can you see me rolling my eyes??

(mum: I left her hair growing for too long....... and for anyone who's familiar with these sheepcoats... they get very matted.... I don't want to shave her, so I am working through the mats slowly with my comb.... I don't want Sunshade to have to stand for too long because of her joints, so I'm spreading this grooming job over a few day period.)

Not only was I made fun of by my EVIL mum, she even compared those pictures to these pictures of me when I was a 3 months old pup (the perfect, SuperPUP btw). (mum: you mean when you were a STINKY??)


Just look at me, can you tell the abuse started early on??

Will keep you updated on the "grooming process"......

Watch where you hide the treats!

Mum and I have a game where she tells me to "STAY" in the kitchen while she goes and hides treats all over the house. Then she comes back, releases me from my "STAY" and tells me "GO FIND THEM". I, then go sniff all over the house (ie, in the tunnel, up the book shelve, DVD shelve, under my food stand, inside slippers, or UNDER covers!!)

Well, this is what happens when she (who thinks she's so smart) decides to hide treats UNDER quilt covers,

Honestly, did she expect me to find the quilt cover opening, stick my head under, and risk suffocating???

When I can easily get through the cover and get to MY treat!!

YUMMMM-MMMMMY liver bits!!

(mum: she's never been a delicate girl.... LOL)

I heard in the forecast that we were gonna get our first snooooooooooooooooooooow today. I LOVE snooooooooooooooooow, so I got up early to wait for snooooooooooooooooooooooooooooow,

I looked up to the sky, waiting for snooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooow to fall....

A little bit of snooooooooooooooooooooooooooow came down.... and I did a big stretch because I waited for so long....

I wondered WHEN will more snoooooooooooooooooooooooooooow come down, enough for me to play???

Finally, more snooooooooooooooooooooooooooooow came down, look at my yard!

STINKY was inside because mum said he might get too cold if he stayed out with me since he doesn't have polar bear coat like me. She also worried about his kidneys in the cold, she's always worried nowadays, no fun at all....

Soo I stayed out in MY yard waited for more snoooooooooooooooooooooooooooow,

Then mum ran out and made me get up..... said I couldn't be covered in snoooooooooooooooooow, not good for my kidneys either............... kidney this kidney that... GEEZUS!

So she put my hot pink snooooooooooooooooooooooooow jumper suit on me made by my designers Butchy and Snickers,

I love my hot pink fleece jumper suit,

I do face plants in it,

and have so much fun in it (with the snooooooooooooooooooooow of course)!

Needless to say, I think I look pretty HOT in it (even tho mum called me a woolly mammoth from the prehistoric ice age.. or however she put it! HMMPH!)

Then..... I guess all good things must come to an end..... even in the snoooooooooooooow.......

A STINKY Goofy came..........

and took MY football right away!

Just look at him..... so yes... I had to resort to MY way of doing things towards the end!!!! That's my perfect growl you're listening to throughout the video BTW, doesn't it sound just PERFECT??

I did NOTHING wrong! NOTHING wrong with what I did!

(mum: hehe... there's Jaffa for ya - no worries in the world, always happy. And then there is Miss Sunshade - MYYYYYY way!!

You know Sunshade... if grandpa saw that video, he would say you are very "沒風度" (mei feng du)!! I think if you were to translate into english... it says "no demeanor"..... or something like that.)
