Someone Needs A Grooming!!!!!

Yes, Miss Stella…….how quickly her hair grows……..

In November….just before Thanksgiving….this is how Stella looked….


So Velvety Soft and Adorable!!!!

By January…..she’s a little Shaggy….but still cute as can be!!!!

So Cute!

And now…at the end of February…….you can barely see her Adorable Face….

So Shaggy....so so Shaggy!!!!

Stella needs your help!!!!  One of her favorite places to be groomed (she has a couple!) is giving away a FREE Grooming!  Yes, Free!

I posted a photo of our snowy faced Schnoodle on their facebook page and all you have to do Stella fans is go to their page…

http://www.facebook.com/pages/Paws-Applause-Natural-Pet-Supplies-Grooming/59738701219

Click the “Like” for their page and then click the “Like” under her cute little snowy face!!!!   The dog with the most votes wins……and Stella is very worried that if she doesn’t win….she’ll be subjected to a “Home Haircut” from Mama…….

Notice the bald spot from her last "Home Haircut" where Mama got a little too close with the clippers.....

Voting ends 3/1/11!!!!  Stella needs your help!!!!!!!

"Please vote...don't let me walk around looking all lopsided like this again...Mama should not be allowed around clippers!"

New Do!

Someone…..was looking a little shaggy last week.

/

Yes, Shaggy Stella.

/

"Whatever Mama."

/

Because Mama is thrifty (aka “Cheap”) she decided to give Stella another home haircut.

/

"What?????"

/

Up onto the picnic table Stella went and out came the clippers.

/

Schnoodle hair everywhere.

/

40 min later and the squirmy Schnoodle was still THIS hairy...arrgghhhh!

/

Mama threw in the clippers and took Stella to the Groomer’s.  Somethings are better done by professionals…..grooming a squirmy dog is one of them.  The super nice people at Paws Applause took her right in…..and a couple of hours later……

/

This is how she looked before her groom…..

/

Before......

/

And after......

/

Sooooooo cute! And just in time for the hot weather!!!!

Stella’s Got a New “Do”!!!

First off….apologies for the lack of posts this past week….two words explain it….”Mafia Wars”.  Are you on Facebook?  Some one of your friends has to have sent you an invite to play.  DON’T DO IT!!!!!!  You start out thinking, “This is silly….”…..and two whole days later you realize you haven’t showeredin 48 hours…….have barely eaten….and count down the hours in the amount of time left til you can regain your energy to rob, pilage….Rob’s staging an intervention for me right now…..

Anywho………

STELLA GOT A NEW DO!!!!!!!!!  She was looking a little shaggy…..you could barely see her cute little eyes.  Her last cut was at the end of June.  Saturday we were braving a day of torrential rain….and I decided….”Stella…you’re going to have a spa day!!!”

Wait a minute....I remember this.....

Wait a minute....I remember this.....

I called Paws Applause….and wonderful folks that they are……they said, “Bring her on over!”   They’re a super busy place, but they managed to squeeze our girl in.   So into the car the Schnoodle went….and off to the groomer’s.

You totally tricked me again...You said we were going for a ride....I thought it was to the Dog Park Mama!

"You totally tricked me again...You said we were going for a ride....I thought it was to the Dog Park Mama!

It’s a dilemma what to do with a cut for her….being a Schnauzer/Poodle mix…we could go with a lot of different cuts.  I like her a little shaggy….I don’t want a formal “breed specific” cut and the folks at Paws Applause are great!   I explain what “Look” we’re going for…..and Wah Lah……..this is what we get back……

Um.  Mama....I feel silly.

Um. Mama....I feel silly.

No, they didn’t send her home with Pink hair……they’re professionals….and very nice people…….this is Mama’s idea of a fun afternoon.

Where is my Papa?

"Where is my Papa?"

Papa told you....you were NOT supposed to do this to me.

"Papa told you....you were NOT supposed to do this to me."

THIS is how she came home to us……clean and fresh…neatly trimmed………

So cute!!!!!!!

So cute!!!!!!!

Look…..you can see her beautiful little brown eyes again!!!

They are beautiful eyes arent they Mama?

They are beautiful eyes aren't they Mama?

It’s a very versatile cut….

She can wear her bangs down....very conservative....

Me....I like to Zoosh it up....make her all sassy and edgy.

Woman....I am TRYING to take a nap.....leave my room immediately!

"Woman....I am TRYING to take a nap.....leave my room immediately!"

AND….a very Happy, Happy Birthday to Susan Catherine today!!!!!!!
