Half Groomies

Mom said that my fur has been getting way too long and she has been racking her brain trying to decide how best to give me a hAirecut. 

I can't climb the stairs - my legs just won't let me anymore and that's where the grooming room is and my dad is feeling better since his hospital stay but he's not 100% yet and his back has been bothering him so dad can't possibly carry me up and down the stairs and mom tried it once and it wasn't the smartest thing that she ever did so that's out.

She decided that today we would put down my grooming rugs on the laundry room floor and she would groom only my head and tomorrow would be my body and we'd do my legs after that.

I don't look so bad, right?
I can stay this way, right, mom?
 Why do you have that horrified look on your face, Mitch?   I think I look A-ok!

 She says that I can't stay this way!  Bummer!

No one is laughing at me half groomed, right?

So until next time.................

Love ya lots,

We're not even half groomed - that was Mom's plan for yesterday and today - to get us groomed, but her stooooopid washer broke and she had to go get a new one - and it's involving moving everything in our house - BOL!! At this very moment, Mom doesn't even know where Lilly is.

Mitch looks like he's not sure he wants to be seen with you!!!

But we think you look great. We get the half groom sometime.

Don't worry Maggie. Mo does us in pieces, too. One day she does ears, then beards, then heads and necks and so on. We're works in progress.

hi Maggie, we say that the less grooming is the best grooming. so then being half groomed is better than being completely groomed! at least that's what we hope for. we would rather have NO GROOMING. oh well, it never works out that way.


Oreo said...

Naw....we would never laugh!! You still look good 1/2 groomed!! ;-)


Pinot and Angel Momo said...

Maggie, You're very very pretty girl!! It doesn't matter if it's half or full! :) :)
Cheers for your daddy!! He's home, yay!!

Dexter said...

I think your half groom looks great. At least she did your front half instead of doing just one side. And you kept your nice beardie.


Unknown said...

Hey Mitch, Are your ears thawed yet?

You are always quite lovely Maggie no matter whether you have had dog grooming torture or not (or half dog grooming torture!)

Your friends,

Maggie, we love you any way you are groomed! Half groomed, full groomed, no groomed....we still love you! Lots of love, Holly and mom

Alien said...

Hmmm. She seems most proficient.

I could use a haircut myself.


Bocci said...

Hahahaha! Whoops-we are definitely not laughing!
We'll look forward to seeing the final "after" pictures:-)

TwoSpecialWires said...

Oh boy. Do we understand about needing to be groomed! (Remember us, by the way? It's been FOREVER since Moma let us visit!) Jake's tripping on his paw furs and can barely see through hie eyebrows and my neck is bigger than a football player's! But ... we think it'll still be a while before much happens in the grooming department. That's no surprise. EVERYTHING around here is way behind schedule. We just lucked out with this task!

(You look great ... and we miss you)

Mack said...

You are beautiful as always Maggie!

Amber-Mae said...

Hey Maggie & Mitch! Maggie, why is your mom grooming you? You look perfectly fine right now, you do not need to be groomed! I hate it when Melissa grooms me. Nowadays, she has been grooming me quite often. It's annoying...

Archie and Melissa said...

hi maggie!
oh you look positively perfect!
we love you and mitch!
your post made our whole day!

Sunny,Scooter, (sometimes Jamie) said...

You look beautiful Maggie. Mom is afraid to give Bentley George or me a haircut yet. We had a nice week but she wants to be sure and wait alittle longer. Meanwhile, I, Sinny, am as wooly a dog as you have ever seen. Bentley is in need too, but mom says we wait....she also says the way that aire boy likes to play bity face all the time I may miss the wool when it goes. He is one mouthy puppy...
ps Scooter says, he is glad he doesn't get hair cuts!

Stardust said...

Sweetie, mom has done you a great job. ;)

I laughed when Mitch looked like that. :D

Hoping that daddy gets much better with each day so that he gets to enjoy spring with you guys. :) Yay!
