Busy day around here!

Here I am early this morning, in all my fuzzy glory.

I thought for sure that I was gonna get a day off, but Muzzer had other plans.

Shortly after taking this picture, she loaded me into the Gussiemobile and took me to the Groomers! I ask you....Do I look like I need to be grrrrommmed?

There is some justice in the world, because muzzer came back to the house and gave Teka a bath in the kitchen sink. Now, this is no dog spa, but we do have a nice squirter thingy on a long stretchy hose, and if she puts towels down, Teka says it is not too bad. Muzzer used the good lavendar shampoo to see if it really has a calming effect. (NOPE!)

Bath is over, here is Teka counting spots to make sure Muzzer didn't wash any off.

And here she is - Full of vim and vigor and ready to rumble.

And here is my saddle after I was groooommmmmed. I think she did a good job!

Here Teka and I check one another out carefully to make sure there are no impostors!

And here I am doing a quality control check on the shampoo to make sure Teka still smells kinda like Teka. So if she runs into Swede William, he will recognize her. Yup.

Hey Gussie,
Wooowwweeeeee, you look so handsome! I sure hope the groomer didn't hurt your Rodney Apartment. And how does Teka smell??? errrrr, we heard Mama talking about giving us a bath tomorrow cause we have company coming over for supper then. Gee, do we have to be fluffy?? I really need my hair stripped first, but who knows what she will do. Her fingers aren't working so good lately either. Maybe I can get out of the bath & haircut for a few more weeks, hehehehe.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Gussie Boy!

My girl ALWAYS mourns the loss of your fine fuzz whenever you get groomed, but she understands that you need it sometimes, and it's good to see that saddle come back.

Everydog around here is smelling like lavender too since we use the same shampoo here your mama does. And, I just got myself shaved nekkid last Friday, so I'm feeling some of your pain, residually.

Goober love,

Love ya lots,

Heya Gus,
Bet the groomer person was really careful doing the Rodney space; how's the hair growth going? Youse guys look all neat and spiffy. When we need a bath dad and mom walk us all down to the boat ramp at the lake and "make" us go swimming. Max had a accident in his crate yesterday cuz dad was really late getting home. Dad cleaned up the mess last night but we think Max needs to go swimming pretty darn soon.

Most of us are here, to tell you how great both of you look! Swede William isn't exactly here. He fainted thump on the ground.

Wags from the rest of us whippets, anyway

Is that a nice big red bow on your neck?? I sure wish someone would outlaw baths.
