Before and after the Aire-cut!

Hi, everybuddy! It's me, Princess Patches. I wanted to show you my before and after pictures, but for some reason, the AFTER pictures loaded first. I think it's my mom's fault! Anyway, yesterday, Aunt Wendy and Mom lured me down to the basement and gave me a serious Aire-cut!
And if that wasn't bad enough...this morning I got a bath! Mom tricked me into the bathroom and then shut the door. She knows that I always show up whenever she sits on that porcelain thingy. It's almost like there is a string tied to my body. EVERY time she sits down, here I come! Anyway, she sat down like she always does, but this time, she grabbed my collar as soon as I made my appearance! Soooooo NOT fair! Penny didn't have to get an Aire-cut OR a b-a-t-h. Mom says her turn is coming!
In my BEFORE pictures, I kind looked like a wooly bear! And that was AFTER Aunt Wendy trimmed my face so I could see again!
Sorry it took so long for us to post. It's been way over a month and our mom has used every excuse in the book on us...it's too hot. It's too dry. I have too much to do!...the list goes on and on. Well, Penny and I aren't buying ANY of it! We know she spent a lot of time making devilled eggies and macaroni salad when she could have been posting for US. And did we get any? Nope, not a single bite!

Mom is almost always in front of the 'puter or weed eating or mowing grass. And when she's in front of the 'puter, it's always for the wrong reasons. We need to get her in front of it more to post for US! She KNOWS we need to keep up on what's going on with everydoggie! We were very sad to learn that the famous (or infamous) Joe Stains made his journey to the rainbow bridge yesterday. Run free, Joey and torment all the other doggies!

Patches (and Penny too)

You look so much cooler and even more beautiful, Patches!
Our mom closes the bathroom door on us once we're inside so we can't escape! We hate bathtime!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

My Dog Sam - Ruptured Disk said...

It's okay you still look beautiful. The Airecut and bath just made you look even nicer. Watch out Penny you mom's sneaking up on you.

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Oh Patches...how quickly your furs grew back into a wooly bear...just kiddin'...we saw they loaded backwards!!! So your mom did the sit on the porcelin and nab you into the bath trick. Sheesch. Hoomans stoop so low sometimes...

We feel so bad about Joey and Butchy. It's gettin' rather crowded at the Bridge...well, at least our departed pups have a lot of friends up there...but it's sad for us left behind....

Kisses to you....

Lacie Teacakes and her stoopid brothers!

Duke said...

You do look cooler... but I do wish Mom hadn't read this today. She's looking at me real hard and muttering under her breath. I'm afraid there is a bath in my future.

It sounds like our moms are cut from the same cookie cutters. It's tough living with them, these humans.

Oh well. They do make us look good (you look smashing, Patches!). And they do eventually come around. I guess we'd better cut them some slack. And then ask for a treat.
