I spent the day at the groomer's place.
Suffering the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
and many indignities unknown to man (or woman)
just so I could get to open this package from sweet Miss Asta.
It came in the mail yesterday.
And stingy Muzzer wouldn't let us open it our sniff it.
Ya know why?
Because she said we were grungy and smelly
from the Mud Wrasslin and poker game at
Butchy and Miss Snicker's place!! Maybe Teka was.
But not me, uhuh. No way!
But, muzzer rules.
So today I went to see Miss Yolanda,
my favorite Groomer

As you can see

She did her usual, sterling job
This one's for you Barkies!

And she made my eyebrows match.
But not quite.

And she fluffed my whiskers.

And made me look pretty good.
OK, not as good as Duffy.
But he lives in New Yawk.
He MUST look pawfect and
Cosmo - paw- litan.

I mean, after all....
He and Petey are seen often in
the company of Miss Asta - rooni
Fashionista Extraordinaire!!
And I live in Mayemphis.
And I don't look bad,
for a Houn' Dawg.

No Comment from the peanut gallery please!

You look like a little teddy bear. I think you look great, so as the opinion from one little terrier girl, a welsh terrier girl, you look great.

Hey Gussie, Ms. Yolanda works wonders considering what she has to work with. You look very pretty, especially with the cute ribbon around your neck. be careful that you don't catch it on something and hang yourself. Gosh, we've never noticed whether or not our eyebrows match when w get back from the groomer; of yeah, we don't go to the groomer, that's why. Did you get your claws painted or have smelly perfume sprayed on you? So what was in the package?

Sally said...

Gussie! You are very fluffy! We worry about this. We have never heard of a thing called a groomer but what do you think would happen to us? Would we go all fluffy? Falafel?

Vidal Sassoon ain't got nothin' on you. I'm sure there's probably someone newer and more hip but I don't know who that would be because I cannot keep up with the trends. You do look mahvelous, though.
