|"Worried? Do I look worried to you?"|
But, back to my story. There I was, hanging out on the bed with Mom when she reached behind her and got her scissors. Now, I get the scissors a lot - to keep the hair out of my eyes, to get rid of super pesty mats and for when I get into the bad weeds that get wound in my fur, so I wasn't all that worried.
Then I hear a big 'snip' and WOW! I see a huge chunk of my hair in Mom's hand. Then she did it again and again. Holy moley --- Mom's gonna make me bald, just because of some cat poop!
She kept cutting and cutting, and I was getting pretty worried. Mom never went to dog groom school or anything...what if I look like a big ol' dork when she's done? How will I ever face the other dogs again? Or the cats?
Then she said she was done. She opened the door and told me to go find Dad. Man, what was Dad going to think? He said he liked my long hair.
Dad took one look at me and said he loved it! He kept touching my new, short hair while telling me how soft and fluffy I am now. He said I look bunches smaller and that my cut made my short hair look all bouncy. Hmmmm, maybe this isn't so bad after all.
Of course, you know there had to be one more insult. I had to go to the dog wash. Geez, I didn't even smell like cat poop anymore, but was that good enough? Nope - they had to make me smell like Cucumber Melon, or some other silly scent. I don't even get to smell like a dog.
So, what do you think? Mom says the pictures aren't the best because she's bad with a camera, but they'll have to do for now.
|"Guess I should be glad I got to keep my tail and my leg fluff."|
|"Mom says it looks like I got a body wave in my hair now."|
|"Mom tried to find a hairy "before" pic for you to see how much she cut off."|
|"See? I'm not really all white. Down by my skin my hair |
is light brown. You can see it lots better now that it's short."
|"Yeah, I think I'm going to dry a lot faster|
when I fall in the pool next time."
"So, that's my story. The biggest lesson I learned? Sometimes you have go through a little cat poop to make a big change in your life."
