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!

wet wet licks


Duke said...

Your mom does an awesome job with those sissors, Sunshade! You are such a cutie!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Putter said...


Your Friend,

Putter ...:)

Stanley said...


You're looking all kicky and sassy with your combed out do. My girl could take some scissoring lessons from your mama (or maybe *I* could take some lessons from you on how to stand still for a few minutes whenever the scissors come near).

Did she take your eyebrows off?

Goober love & smooches (more fortifying than treats),

Harry said...

Looking very lovely there sweet Sunshade. I like the second photo with your tongie just poking out!

Toodle pip,

jaffeboy said...

Hey Georgeous! All neat & tidy now eh? Isn't it a little too cold now to be furless?

Peanut said...

You look lovely as always.

Par said... does look more nice.

Faya said...

Ahhhhh Sunshade is back ! The real one, the only one ! Woooohooooo !
Kisses, Faya

Lady Kaos said...

You're looking much better! I am so glad I don't have to be groomed. My Mom and Dad have to shave my long-haired dacshund sister's fur and they are REALLY bad groomers! Although, getting groomed does sound like a good excuse to get lots of treats.

Bogart H. Devil said...

Lookin' good babe!


Joe Stains said...

You are looking better everyday that is for sure! Your Mom is pretty talented with her grooming, our Mom would have no clue what to do and she'd probably end up making you look like a doofus!

Noah the Airedale said...

Cripes your mum did a great job there Sunshade. Bet you can't wait for the grooming to be over!

Hugs and tail wags
Noah, Willow, Tess & Lucy

Huskee and Hershey said...

Hi Sunshade,
You look pretty in your new 'look'! So is it Jaffa's turn next?

Huskee and Hershey said...

I almost forgot..One more thing.. Did you ever receive the package that I sent over sometime in Nov?? I sure hope the mailman hasn't kept it for himself.. Grrrr...

fee said...

hey sunshade jiejie, i kind of like your grizzly bear look actually. it's comfortable and we can keep so many things in it. mom did my face a few days ago too and i'm hoping she won't do the rest of me any time soon!


Amber-Mae said...

Oh Sunshade, you look so so so so much better!!! I'm suprised that you're quite slim. All that wooly fur sure made you look well, plump! Heeheehee...

Love licks,
Solid Gold Dancer

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...


Babystan had speech therapy as a young I articulate rather proficiently...

Your pressie arrived safely...and Mumsie won't let me touch it till Christmas is OVER!!! The nerve of her..I wanna know what's in it!!!

Oh, Sunshade, you are one HOT Dale!! That ruff round your neck....WOOT!..Your gams are so...furnished! We won't even discuss your muscle butt!! I um well um...learned to LIFT MY LEG today. Scuffy taught me. It's pawsome. Course the first couple times I blush....fell over. I don't know why Big Bruvver laughed so hard. I have the same problem when I scratch an's a balancing act!

And Dr. Vet did say I have strong biceps...very muscular she said. And I'll tell you what else she said privately.

It's time to hang up our stockings....Santa Paws is coming. Mumsie's asleep on the sofa having drunk too much wine....

Dale nibbles....

PEE ESS There's somethin' wrong with my name...can u come up with a pet name for me??? Punny huh!!!

wally said...

I don't know, if you groom those hind legs I'd have a clear view of that muscle butt and I'm not sure I could control myself after that!


ps. Holiday smoocheroonies!

Koobuss said...

That Airedale on the grooming table is priceless. Their faces are so expressive. I am on my 3rd Airedale (whois pestering me to feed him, so...)They are great dogs.

Girasol said...

Lenny said...

Hey Sunshade! You are looking gorgeous, of course. I hope you and Jaffa-man are having a good new year. I wanted to thank you for your DWB holiday card. My dad said it was his favorite out of ALL of the cards that I got. (I liked it too!)

Your friend, Lenny

Dexter said...

Dear Miss Sunshade -
I am a big fan of yours! I found your blog through Bogart's most awesome website. I have not seen anything new from you or the little Jaffa dude for a while and am worried about you both. Hope all is OK.


Jessica said...

Sunshade... You are so beautiful when you are freshly groomed, not that you aren't always!!

We just got the Christmas card and gift in the mail. You are too kind!! We absolutely love "pug on board sign" and it is perfectly OK that they didn't have a boston one because the other day someone gave Mom a sticker for her car that said "I love my boston terrier" but no pug one. Now we have both boston and pug signs on our car. Perfect!!

Thanks again Sunshade and Jaffa too.

We love you, Seadra and Zoe

Sophie Brador said...

Wow, You look impressive Sunshade. Are you really a movie star? I'm so glad Stinky ... I mean Jaffa .... got all better.

the many Bs said...

hi Sunshade, you look like a movie star. we are so smitten with your beauty and your perfectly fluffed legs. maybe your mom could be a poodle groomer too. our mom is not very good when she grooms us.


Ume said...

Rudy said...

OH I feel your pain -- I get groomed by my breeder every 6 weeks to 2 months and it's not pretty. Brushed, bathed, blow dried, brush some more, shave, scissor....! Non-stop. At least we're not stripped which I can't imagine. arrrrrgggghhhh

But the results, like yours, are stunning!


Wuffstuff said...

As an AIredale owner myself I am embarrassed by the cut of your superdale Sunshade. Wow! spectacular.
