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"......

Oh Sunshade, what an adorable adorable 3 month old you were. Now u are the supreme diva. Ya know...ur and Jaffa have gotten Mumsie into a lot of trouble. Like, um gimormous trouble. Er...she fell in love with you and she lost her head and went crazy. But we can't say anything more, yet. But this weekend we will......we want you to meet someone...just remember you and Jaffa...yes..Stinky...were her inspiration.

Lacie couldn't keep a secret if her life depended on it.

Pee's a great secret.
It's large.
It's probably very very stinky.

you kind of look like someone put you in the dryer on FLUFF. Not that there is anything wrong with how you look, just um, fluffy???

Bogart H. Devil said...

Snowball said...

Err... mmm... Sunshade, I think your teddy bear look is pretty cute. That kid must have mistaken you to be a moving teddy bear and hopping to bring you home with her


Stanley said...

Hey, Sunshade!

I don't have your woolly coat, but my girl did the same thing to me this week. She let me grow out far too long & it took her forever to get through all the matted hair. Now I'm bald on top but she hasn't trimmed any of my furnishings and I look a little puffy!

I would never laugh AT you, girlie! You're cute no matter what, but it has been a different look for you, hasn't it?

Be sure to give your mama & JaffaMan some smooches from me, and take a whole boatload for yourself.

Goober love,

Pa likes the fluffy look and he has said I can grow my coat over the winter IF I get brushed every day. What a dilemma!

You look cute no matter what by the way ;-)

Toodle pip,

Dear Sunshade, you know how I always say you can come and live with me? Well, here's a bonus: I LIKE "fluffy" not groomed-to-the-nines Airedales.
So, pack your bags girl, and come to Michigan, where we're expecting a foot of snooooooooowwww and you can be shaggy all day long.

Oh Sunshade, I have no clue what everyone is talking about. I think you look adorable!!! Like a teddy bear!! This can be your new signature "winter" look!


Peanut said...
