We Both Got Haircuts!

Dad is away for a couple of days - climbing Mount Washington in New Hampshire to be exact - and mom wanted to give us both haircuts to keep us cooler during the warmer months.
Mitch was first and got groomed yesterday. Mom says his fur is so different from mine! It's more coarse and wirey and mine is more wool-like and softer and fluffy. She says Mitch's fur is much easier to clipper!
The little dude is growing up!

He still doesn't climb stairs - he runs in fear - so mom still has to pick him up and carry him up and down the stairs. We haven't weighed Mitch in a week but he's got to weigh around 48 pounds! That's quite an armful!

My grooming session was today after our walkie. Mom says she needs a new blade to get through my fur for the next time! She says she felt sorry for the poor Oster clippers having to work so hard!

Because dad isn't home, mom always eats stupid stuff that requires no cooking like ice cream or chips or cookies! Mom is very smart to do this and she's very generous about sharing with us! I hear tonight's dinner is ice cream and cinnamon sugar pita chips! yummmmmmmmmm
What time do we eat mom?
We had a nice surprise in our email box this morning. It was from Sir Chance-Lot. He said I was his friend of the day! It's that so cool and look what his mom created! It's just beautiful! We absolutely love it!

We're so honored Chance! Thank you so very, very much!

Till next time...............

Love ya lots,

Maggie

Wow Maggie...My family LOVES MDI, and Acadia N.P. ~They want to maybe live there, because in 9 years or so when My pappa is old enough, he wants to go to The college of the Atlantic, which is right in Bar Harbor. It's either there or back to Norway..hehe..I hope Norway allows doggies...?!!

Toby said...

You and Mitch look so styling in your summer 'do's!

I think your Mommy and my Mommy like to eat similar things. Mommy refers to that stuff as junk. She loves junk food.

What kinda ice-cream did you get??

wally said...

Is your mum's diet plan how she stays so young?

I feel lucky I don't have to get my hairs cut. They stay just the perfect length. And then I leave them all over the house!

The ice cream tempts wanting eat by a sweet smell.
It is time when the time that wants to eat eats.
However, it is frightened. :)

And, a new haircut is fashionable wonderfully.

Hi, Maggie.
Your mom must be pretty strong to carry Mitch up and down the stairs!
I like your haircuts, best way for a hot weather!
Your picture is beautiful
Have a nice day

Allegra the Airedale! said...

Wow! Must be a trend. Dad's been in Panama the country work for the last six weeks and mom does some of that two.

She did bbq with a friend last weekend but we only got to taste the mangos in the dish!

The Army of Four said...

Hi Maggie! Oh, your fur-cuts look wonderful! I don't think I'd like that - Mom says it's enough of a challenge when she has to trim our snow-shoes ... and when she looked at the picture of me with my new football, she said that needs to be SOON! :(
Love,
Ammy

Stanley said...

Mags!

You and Mitch are both stylin' with your new 'dos. I bet you're feeling much cooler (I know I am).

I have a feeling your mom and my girl would get along like peas and carrots (and not just because they don't always eat alot of those). Too bad we live so far apart. I'll just have to settle for playing with you guys in my dreams.

Goob love,
Stanley

Amber-Mae said...

hehehe, you both look sooooo much better after a haircut! I know you both didn't enjoy it... I don like it too but you both looks sooo good after one. Your coats are very shiny too har?! Nice nice!

P/S: That artwork by Chance's mamma is really bootiful!

Love licks,

Marvin The Dog said...

I just lurve your haircuts! You are so sweet!

Sunshade said...

Oh wow Maggie, Mitch sure looks grown up!!! I think your brother is catching up on STINKY. STINKY is 7 months old now and weighs 51 lbs. He hasn't been gaining 2 lbs per week like he had been in the past. He's my height now, his head is the size of my head if not bigger, he just loses out on *ahem*..width and depth...

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade
