Finally Hershey has got it into her little head that her barkday celebrations are officially o.v.e.r... and once again, normality and peace reigns in the household. We are all kind of glad that barkdays only comes once a year, especially so for Hershey. We have an unwritten 'rule' in the house that whoever who is celebrating his/ her barkday (both human and dog), should be treated like a VIP for 3 whole days, i.e. the day before the actual barkday, the actual day itself and the day after. So for Hershey's barkday, it was the same... we all treated her like a pampered princess and no one can scold her no matter what she did or how naughty she was. Sheesh... I am so glad it's over and it'd be another year before it's 'torture time'.

And since it wasn't my barkday, I didn't get the royal/ pampered pooch treatment. Instead, I had to go to the groomers!! Ack!! Here are a series of photos that mom took with her iPhone cos she forgot to charge the camera (AGAIN)...

On the way to the Torture Chambers..

Don't I look cute in all my fluffiness??

Inside the Torture Chambers.. Almost done!! (They have a 'viewing gallery' where owners can keep tabs on their doggies..)

The grooming place is part of a pet shop, so I got to pick a few toys and treats to make up for the trauma that I went through before we headed for home...

Finally... we are on our way home

Close up of my new look... Mom says I look like a girl (WTF?!!) and that my ears remind her of 2 ponytails...

Oh before I go, my mom wants to say THANKS to all of you who have commented that she is 'pretty' **insert gagging sound** in the previous post.. She is so very flattered and her head swelled to triple of it's usual size. It took all of our strength (dad's, Hershey's and mine) to hold her down and keep her from floating too high from the ground.. you know she isn't the lightest person around, so if she falls, she'd land pretty hard and I don't want her to land on me!! Anyway, she's been losing A LOT of hair recently.. as in heaps of it and it is freaking her out. So one day she decided to be a smarty-pants and went alsomade an appointment with the groomer to cut her hair... originally it used to be way past her shoulders, halfway down her back.

Now we have a cartoon character at home because with her new haircut, she looks eerily like Dora the Explorer (see pic below)... She says that she's staying at home for the next 3 months until it grows out.. LOL!!

You new look is great! And, you got treats! I don't like to go to the wash either! But it sure is fun to get home and "smell" up my clean coat on the grass outside!! Mom just hates that!

I want to see pics of your mummy after she went to the groomer! I bet she looks as good as you!

A girl ??????? No way, Huskee - you look like a cool dude - much better than with all the poofiness. Our Mom hates new dos too but they all manage to grow out. Give Mom a sloppy kiss and tell her she looks beautiful.

Hi, Huskee!

You look very cute! A good roaching will give you your natural yourself!
Of course your mom is beautiful! I am sure she looks prettier with her new hairdo!

I hate grooming but I do admit that short hair is the best during this super hot weather.

Moco said...

3 days? That is so cool!!! I think my mom and dad need to start that same thing!!! Looks like Hershey's birthday was really great!!!

Pedro said...


You don't look like a girl! You still hae a mustache & beard! Does your mom really look like Dora? Leah used to watch that show when she was a little girl. I don't think it's a bad thing to look like Dora! I'm going to have to post about my bald spots again soon. I've been getting beaten up by a stray cat bully in my back yard and my hair has really been falling out! That cat better watch out cause my dad is NOT happy with her! (Yes, I admit it, I am being beaten up by a girl, cat. So humiliating...)


Jans Funny Farm said...

Wow, when you celebrate, you celebrate! Looks like lots of fun and presents.

the many Bs said...

hey Hershey, we think your new haircut looks pawsome. you look very handsome!

you kiddos really know how to celebrate barkdays at your house. we like the 3-day celebration. do you think we can get credit for past barkdays?? that would be cool.


Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

I bet your mom is much cuter, younger with her new shorthaired style!
Let's open business, Huskee, you'll be the hair dresser and I'll selling hats next door!

Teddy said...

Huskee Boy, you sure were fluffy. I would like to see you get even fluffier. Maybe you can wait a year till your next grooming??
