Wheelie Wednesday - My Spa Day

Hi everyone! It's me, Francesca!
Remember these tiny jars?It turns out that they are a huge part of my spa day!This is my dye bath water!
Do you doggies take baths in water that looks like that? Gosh, I never have before!
Mom is preparing me for my day of beauty!
My glass eyes and button nose are being taped off so they stay the way they're meant to be!
And the same with my wheels and my floorboards!
Who knew that I'd be an Irish Terrier~
Before turning into an Airedale girlie!
I'm on my way upstairs to stand on the radiator so that my furs can dry properly!

This was actually a 2-day event. Day one I was an Irish Terrier and spent all day and night on the radiator upstairs drying and on day #2, I became an Airedale~We have to tell you all that mom got lots of help and inspiration from Ann Curran. If you check out her link, you can see her Airedale wheelies. Mom wrote and asked her about colors and procedure and Ann was very nice to help her out!

This is my before and after picture!
I think my spa day was well worth it!
It's pretty amazing, don't you think?

I hope Autumn lets me blog again soon. This is fun!

Friends Forever,

Remington said...

Hi my name is Remington. I hope we can be friends. Great blog!

Jake of Florida said...

Great makeover. Our mom echos muzzer -- does your mom do hoomans too?

And here's a weird coincidink: a few weeks ago, Mom dreamt that our Dogdad was meeting a beautiful lady named Francesca. He denied it when she asked him about it after she woke up -- so she thought no more about it. But today -- somehow her dream takes on new meaning. Just sayin'.

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Francesca! Oh my dogness! We missed this post! We came over to see if you have a link to a FaceBook account, 'cause we've just started up a Wheelie Wheeless All Around the World group (and are having great fun!) and wanted to invite you! And look what we found! Moma is going to HAVE to be in touch with your moma someday. Did you know our Brady is from the same lineage as you? Even down to the white wheels? Moma has been needle felting some new hair for him (ouch!) but hasn't been happy with the colors. Go see him on our bloggie. Around Christmas time. You guys are CLEARLY related (and now he's quite smltten with you!)

We'll be in touch. This is IMPORTANT!

Jake and Fergi and the wheelies!
