Arrghhh... Time for my Grooming Session


I overheard The Maid making an appointment with the groomer this Saturday!! Oh no... I hate grooming sessions (for vanity reasons) and I think I look better with my long coat.. (personally I think I look dreadful and I feel very 'naked' after my grooming sessions)...

Here are the pics that Ma took after my previous grooming session - Proof of what I mean:

Ma's reason for sending me off to the groomer is because she is concerned that my coat being fairly long now would make me uncomfortable in our hot and humid climate. For anyone who is interested, Singapore's temperature averages around 30°C/ 87°F all year round (Yes, spring, summer, autumn and winter is the SAME)... I kind of miss the four distinct seasons in Melbourne. Autumn is me and Ma's favourite season. After her lectures or on days that she need not go to uni., Ma used to take me out to Carlton park to play or we'd go for long walks to the post office when it's nice and cool. We'd see possums and squirrels, falling/ fallen autum leaves, swans in the big pond.. Ok I am digressing. Was feeling somewhat nostalgic for my birth place and where I grew up cos I had many happy memories there...
Back to the topic, Ma also conveniently forgot to mention the other reason for wanting to send me for grooming, i.e. they'd not have to spend so much time combing out the tangles and bathing me would be a breeze for the next 3 months!! Lazy bums...
Well, the only positive thing out of this is normally Ma will buy me lots of treats and new toys to 'make up' for it.. so at then end of the day I end up with bags of goodies!!
It'd take at least 2-3 months for the fur to grow out and for me to look 'normal' again... Hmmm, maybe I will not post any more photos of myself for the time being until life is back to normal...lest I get laughed at...

Hi Huskee, I think you look pretty cool and thinner with short hair. Eil's idol is also sporting crop hair now. Maybe it's an 'in' thing now. And look on the bright side, you dont need to get comb often by the humans.

Hi Huskee, it's okay... you look cute with long/short fur! And you end up with bags of goodies... Will you share some with me?

I also have long hair and J insists for me to keep it. She turns on the fan or aircon for me if it's too warm.

Of course, she is a lazy bum too! Aunty JM, aka Godma, combs me daily!

Hey Fu Fu,
Yah.. guess you are right. I can spend more time doing other things instead of being on someone's lap getting combed!! (pssst.. ma is toying with the idea of cutting her hair short too!!)

Hey Jay,
The only problem with my coat is that it is pretty thick and a little curly... unlike yours which Ma says is smooth and silky (of cos it is silky cos you are a silky terrier!!).. So if it is not combed properly, it'd get matted..
Of course I will share my goodies with you.. will let you know what I get ok??!

Hey Cheater! said...

I agree with fufu and jay, you are soooo cute in your new trim! I think shorter hair is easier and more comfy for you (us all!)

Ahem...Huskee.... you do look some what naked in those pictures... However, speaking from experience, a short coat like that is much more comfortable!!

I like the fall too if it doesn't consist of rain!

Love nibbles,

Wow, Singapore is really hot! You should stick with the short hair. It looks cool, and you will stay cool :)

Hi Cheater/ Sunshade,
Yah, guess you guys/ gals are right that short fur is more comfortable (although less 'attractive'!!)

Hi Boo,
That's exactly what I mean when I say 'less attractive'.. I have pretty small floppy ears and they look even smaller after grooming.. *sigh*... I think in those pics. they were 'flattened' against my head.. *sigh*

Herbie said...

Hmm... you do look kinda naked with short fur. Well, at least it won't be so hot for you, the weather's getting humid nowadays.

Hey Cheater! said...

Does the groomer hit you? I know groomers are very short tempered people only nice in front of our owners but once the door shuts, its another story!

Hello LBB. You don't look so naked. I love you just the same.
I think your ma, pa and maid just want to 'try' having a short hair dog once a while

Loads of licks, Scuba

Murphey said...

Ohhhhh, I think you look so svelte after a nice haricut, very, very nice!

I hate being brushed, so I wouldn't mind getting shaved up, but it's about to get cold here and my lady refuses to consider cutting my hair, oh well.

Hi Huskee!~ Nice to meet you & thanks for visiting my blog!~ Sorry to hear that you have to go to the groomers.... But at least you don't have to go every 5 weeks like I do. On top of that, I have to have a bath every week too! I hate baths!!

Mommy thinks you look adorable with you're short hair cut though! Yes, mommy likes to use words like "adorable" and "cute" for boys too!! I prefer words like "handsome" and "manly".

Is it ok if I add your blog to my links?? I wanna visit you everyday to see what you're up to!~

Hi Herbie,
I look freakish now.. too depressed to blog.. sigh sigh...

Hello Toby,
Sure, I'll link you up in my blog too ok? Yes I definitely prefer terms like 'manly', 'macho', 'handsome'.. but I don't think our mums will get it...

Big licks,
Huskee Boy
