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.....

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!

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.
