A New Year and a New Hair Cut & Blow Dry!

Hi Woofers!

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

I dunno about rain for the next nine days, it's been sunny for ages and no sign of rain anywhere!

Remember I told you about Old Two Legs being in business for ages? Well, today is the first day of the new year and  to mark the occasion, no one ordered a thing!

Which, when you hear the tale, it was a good thing 'cos that means OTL doesn't get disturbed as he gives me a Hair Cut!

Mid morning the man arrived from Amazon and left a package which when opened was found to contain a set of scissors and a steel comb!

The time had come.

OTL decided that he would 'Sort Me Out' after the lunchtime walk.

Holly Chops was trying to wind me up by saying that I'd never look as good as she does and that OTL said it would be easier cutting her hair than mine!

She minced along the Sea Wall wiggling her backside and waving her tail! 

You've either got it or you haven't, and I have!
 We met up with a family of Two Legs with a load of Mini Two Legs. They were making such a noise, and when we got closer we found the Mini Tl's all had mobile phones and were playing some sort of game!

OTL said they could have much more fun if they buried the phones in the sand and then played 'Hunt The Phone Ring'!

Come on, let's dig a hole for the phones!
 Holly sniffed the food they had brought but try as she might they wouldn't let her have a nibble!

I bet they got food down there!
 OTL said that the beginning of the holidays looked like being a warm one here in North Kent and that the sea looked as blue as the Mediterranean, wot ever that is!

Wot is a Mediterranean?
 We still got loads of flowers on the Sea Front and this one caught OTL's eye.

OTL loves flowers but he also has Hayfever, so the flowers are no good to him!
 Well, it couldn't be put off any longer, we got home and I got washed, brushed, blow dried. I then got shaved, snipped and trimmed in all my important places!

As OTL had a little practise with Holly, he was a little more confident when he started hacking away at me!

I was all big and brave and he only had to put those straps on me a couple of times 'cos most of the time I stood still and let him get on with it!

By the time he had finished it didn't look too bad, my whiskers weren't quite level but I'm being picky!

My hair isn't as short as when the Poodle Parlour cut it but I prefer it a bit longer, especially on my legs.

You will have to wait until tomorrow for a better shot but this will give you a taster!

As OTL says, I look like a Shaggy Dogs Tail!
OTL says he is amazed on just how much hair he has shaved off me!

He says that one of the best things is, he has just saved another thirty pounds!

See you tomorrow!

  1. Afternoon and happy new year little maties. Wow Daisy, you do look the dogs doo dahs. OTL is very good at styling woofers. I don't think I could say which one of you or Holly looks the best, I'm spoilt for choice. Loved all the pictures today. How mean that those little TL's didn't share their picnic with you. I'd bury their phones and not help them dig them out. Now my mum has been groomed today but she don't look as good as you two. I'm off tomorrow, I hatched a good plan, I was going to dig a hole to Australia, that might be near the Mediterranean I'm not sure, but there I was last night, minding my business, having a practice when along comes my mum and made me get off the sofa! I don't know why she objects to me starting my hole in a soft spot but she does. I've been thinking all day but I haven't come up with another plan yet but don't worry I've got my best thinking head on. My mum is taking Brenda and little Milly to the vets in the morning, Milly has to have her 2nd stab. Tell OTL not to worry about not getting any orders today, he can always advertise his services for trimming woofers, I mean I reckon he'll have them queuing up at the door for a trim. Have a lovely evening all and I hope you get a reward for standing nicely, a nice piece of chicken would be good. Love, licks, wags and sniffs from little Arch and Mr Nipper xxxxxxxxxx

  2. Oh Daisy you do look good after your trim, I was a bit bothered that you seem to have lost a bit off your front right paw but decided that it was OTLs camera skills that have suffered. Hope he gets some orders tomorrow or he will be needing that set of scissors very soon. Tell him from me that he did very well and from this angle it looks very professional (apart from the missing bit of paw)'. They were very mean noisey mini TLs but I don't think they would appreciate you burying their phones. Michael phone is just about to go flat and shut off my internet, so must go. Byeeeeeeeee xxxxxx

  3. Wow, Daisy! You do look good. I think it's better that OTL leaves your fur a bit longer than the poodle parlour as I always hate my hair cut for the first week. Well it is raining again up here so we are all fed up. What a shame that the mini TLs were more interested in their phones than playing sandcastles on the beach like in the olden days (my mum said that bit). Must dash, love, licks, sniffs and wags, Izzy and the gang xxx
