This and That, Here and There, Why and Why Not?

Hey...did you notice...Butchy and Snickers gave me this cool new award. Now, the hard thing is to figure out who to give it to, since it has been popping up a lot lately! OK, we are going to write Pappy, Asta (AU), William Tell, The Five Happy Hounds, and E.Rabbit for this award. Go visit them and tell them Gus sent you!

I have been having a great time in the mornings being a terrier sort of fellow and digging under the big grapefruit tree in the back yard. This has resulted in showers with muzzer and most recently, showers with Dad when I come in muddy up to my belly. I like showers with Dad best, I am not embarrassed when I shower with him. Took them long enough to figure that out though! Anyway...tomorrow I am going to my groomer to get cleaned up. After growing my wirey hair for a long time, we went to meet two new groomers who hand strip. Both of them recommended that muzzer continue to have me scissor cut and some areas clipped. We were gonna talk to another groomer, but it is getting desperate, and I cannot see well because my eyebrows hide my eyes. So tomorrow I am going to get cleaned up a bit, and we will continue to look for someone to strip my saddle and back at least. Muzzer thinks I will be even more handsome if we can find someone to do that for me. Either that, or she is gonna start using something called "Greasion Farmula" on my dark spots. Photos at 10:00 tomorrow!

And Muzzer has asked me to thank everyone who inquired about her itchies. It seems that I am the likely culprit, according to the Doctor she consulted. I supposedly brought some kind of irritant in on my paws and belly the last time she showered with me, which made her break out in all the places I had touched on her chubby little body. (feet, legs up to mid-thigh, hands and lower arms) She got some cream to put on and now I am showering with Dad. We haven't told him about the cause of the itchies (contact dermatitis covers a lot of things) and are waiting to see if he is a hyper-reactor like muzzer. Teehee

PS We don't think there's anyway you can be more handsome! It's impossible!!

Butchy & Snickers said...

Hey Gussie,
Glad to hear Muzzer is getting better. Would you have had grapefruit juice or something on your paws?? We can hardly wait to see your new doo! Muzzer can still hand strip your saddle at home with the furminator & a stripping knife. It might take about 6 months for color to come back. Each time you strip the color hairs out, the next time they will come in darker. Snickers is all excited to see how your hair looks. Mama almost has Snickers hair done. She'll finish her up tomorrow & Saturday. Sleep tight!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
Butchy & Miss Snickers

Hello Gus,

I have always been clippered and my saddle is quite grey (though I prefer salt and pepper, sounds much more distinguished). ma says she will continue to have me clippered as my hair is now very soft because of it. Cassidy will be stripped from day one though, poor little blighter!!

Toodle pip,

Thanks for the award, Gus! I'm truly honored!

You are very handsome, no matter what your style is these days. Our haircoats are very versatile and Mom likes to try different looks on us, too.

Hey pal, congrats on your award, you deserve it! Glad to hear that Muzzer's itchies are getting better. I don't think it's possible for you to be even MORE handsome, but we'll wait for the photographic proof. Thanks for the tip about the wubba, I'm sure I'd make mincemeat of it! Jx

HI we're the new kids on the blog. We have no hair, well, not so much to speak of, and sometimes we fear the Hairy Dogs. I do anyway, but I am the Smallest with the Largest Bark.
I hope your Muzzer stops itching.
