Short Back and Whoops!

Hello Woofers!

It's Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret here again!

It has been all fun and games here today. As promised, Holly got washed, dried and shaved!

Well, not a full shave, in fact it was not as short as normal when she gets her hair cut.

It started off with Old Two Legs getting everything laid out ready, starting with the bath. Instead of filling the bath up with water, OTL put Holly and a bucket of water into the bath together and then used a plastic jug to pour water over Holly, making sure it doesn't go into her eyes or ears.

I really don't do water!

She got washed all over and to be honest, she didn't like it, not the getting clean but getting wet, you know how Holly Chops is about water!

I'm drowning is sudsy water!
 Once she was clean she got wrapped up in a doggy towel and taken to the shed where OTL had set up the Table of Torture!

Poor old Holly was blasted with hot air from a hair dried loaned by The Missus, until she was dry all over, then the fun began!

OTL fired up the Doggy Hair Cutter and went Zoooooom all over Holly's back and under her tum and then under her tail as well!

Very carefully OTL trimmed around Holly's ears and over the top of her head. He only has some straight scissors, so he wasn't able to get the curve over the top of her head, but it wasn't too bad for a first go!

So, that was it, a first attempt which tuned out not too bad.

Holly feeling all traumatised!
I'm next but I'm not sure when, maybe later when the new set of scissors arrive mid week!

All the photo's were taken by TM who has no real concept of 'Sharp Focus' or 'Hold Camera Steady' so blame her for the 'Fuzzy Edges'! 

Fuzzy edges may go down a storm on her crafting but OTL says it ruins a good photo!

Bye bye for now.


Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.


  1. Evening little maties. Wow, look at that glamorous Holly chops, didn't OTL do well. My mum thinks Holly looks terrific and I must admit I think she looks really good. Now I think it's a bit much someone taking photos when yer having yer bath ....... now some would call em perverts or peeping toms. I mean, having a bath is a private thing. I can see Holly tried to escape the bath like wot I do. Now then, thinking about this drier that Mrs TM loaned OTL, I hope it wasn't her heat gun wot she uses in her crafting cos they get a tad warmer than a normal drier and a normal drier is a tad hot as far as I'm concerned, plus I don't do being blowed on or WETTED, OR SOAPED! It looks like Holly was a tad tired and in need of a snooze when she finished. Now I've seen a pic of OTL looking rather tired, my mum showed me. I'm off to the groomers on Wednesday unless I can come up with a cunning plan to get out of it, I'm working on it. So is it your turn next Daisy or are you going to wait and see if the ferrets have a session first? I expect Holly will get extra muggings tonight for being such a good girl. We've had a lazy day here cos this is the third morning my mum has got up so early, just one more to go then she's finished the early mornings until Friday. I must say I don't like this getting up so early, it's so dark. Mrs TM did well with the photos. Hope you all have a lovely evening and hope Holly wasn't traumatised by the WET. Love, licks, wags and sniffs from little Arch and Mr Nipper xxxxxxxxx

  2. The photos were very good and reflected a scene which, let's face it, OTL couldn't have managed himself. Give him time and the photography bit will come in as well, all he needs is the head cam and the words edited! Holly looks very good and from this angle you can't tell they were straight scissors, this must mean that you have a stay of execution until mid week, phew. Glad TM liked her horse, I don't think she would have liked to ride on it as it went up and down, round and round, up and down, round and round on and on and on. The lady that rode it did hold on tight and was still upright when she got off! Moving around tomorrow to Stow on the Wold so will hope the internetty stuff is good there, going to a Rugby Club so may learn some new songs. Have a good Monday xxxxxx
