Always In Our Hearts

Wednesday, June 13, 2007


A couple of days ago my girl loaded me into the car (sans ZZ) and said we were going to see my buddies Sassy, Mackie, and Dova. I thought to myself, "Cool. I love playing with those guys. Let's hit the road!"

Here I am yucking it up with Dova and Sassy (in front), blissfully unaware of the fate that was about to befall me.

My girl told me she had brought us to their house so she could get her first Airedale grooming lesson from Terry (mom to Sassy, Mackie, and Dova). You'd think having had a couple of Airepups before me she would have learned to do that before now, but whatever, lady. Have at it. I'm settling in for some good playtime with my pals.

Mackie Boy was having a fine time, albeit, on his own without us.

Sassy was all grins and giggles.

Dova... well he was just a little confused.

Little did I know that my girl had plans for me of which I knew not. While I was feeling sorry for the poor sucker she was taking her clippers to for the first time, she informed me that I was going to be her hair model.

Here's my do before she buzzed me.

Here's my do after she buzzed me.
See the 2 cowlicks on my chest (no, she did not buzz me bald in 2 places - these bald spots were already there under my very thick & wirey chest hair)? Weird, huh? Who knew?

Needless to say, I'm feeling a little exposed!

Freezing in GooberStan,

Exposed...but HANDSOME!!! I'm more into guys without a lot of chest hair anyway(hee, hee, hee). You'll be cooler for the summer at least, right? So do you think your Mom did a good job on her first try or is there some room for improvement?

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Your new 'do looks great! We don't know if it's super hot where you are but if it's like it is must be much cooler!!

Faya said...

Kiss, Faya

Maggie said...

What a great job your mom did and don't worry about the bald spots - they grown back super fast!

Love ya lots,

Oscar Airedale said...

Looking good Stan the man! Clippering has to be better than getting your hair ripped out like I do, right? I wonder what your baldy bits are? Hopefully they'll grow back.

I think mum gets ten out of ten!

Do you know how your friend became a certified life coach? I think Saffie is interested in doing it. Momma thinks that is a good idea to keep her busy.

Tadpole said...

ACK! You look like ME, Stanley! Hee hee!

Joe Stains said...

well thank goodness it is summer, you have no hair!!

Bogart said...

Very handsome big guy, very manly! Tell your mom she did a really nice job and that you deserve a special treat for being her model...

dear stan,

i am so glad you survived the pruning session! did it feel like forever? i too am a 'home-styled' dog so i absolutely know how that feels. try to bargain for some treats in return for sitting still next time – it lessens the pain.


PreciOus said...

It must be terrible to know that you are the one to be the model? Good job done thou. You still look as handsome as ever.


wally said...

You must have lost 10 pounds, bud! You'd better eat a lot of treats so you don't get cold!


Murphey said...

Oh, I dread the day my lady takes the clippers to me, I will end up with bald spots that she gives me, I just know it.

But you look might fine!


Sparky said...

I hate getting haircuts, because I have to be almost shaved naked from all my dreadlocks. You look a lot better than I do after my haircuts!


Ume said...

hi Stanley,
u look real smart with the new haircut!

Finnegan said...

Oh dear! Mommies should never use us as hair styling examples! My mommy wanted to strip the hair from neck and I would have nothing to do with it. Humans are silly, right?


Luckie the Dachie said...

Hey Stanley,
Thanks for visiting and my are certainly a handsome airdale...hehe... :)
Not too sure what's up with those baldy bits though...erm i'm sure it'll grow back thicker and better?
I'm going to link you up too!

Jackson said...

Hey Stan, nice 'do! J x

Quinvale AstaLaVista Baby said...

Wow, Stanley, you look so dapper and you have so many Airefriends. There aren't that many WFT's in all of Melbourne! I want to post something soon, but mum is running out of photos of me and she doesn't come home for another month!

Putter said...

WOW, you look great Stanley! Nice job, Mom ... I wish my Mom could do this ... I always have to get sent out for grooming:(

Your Friend,

Putter ...:)

Suki said...

Oh, poor Stanley! LOL! Sorry, but those bald spots are so cute! :)

I agree with Ruby - I'm not into a lot of chest hair, either, so I think you look handsome.

Puggy kisses
