Before and After

OK, if you want to know about before and after my trip to the Beauty Spot, Before I was a happy good dog and after I am very crabby.
Do you know what they do to you in those places? First they brush you up and then they make you have a bath, and then they dry you with a shooter thing they point at you, then they brush you again, and get out a buzzie thing to cut the hairs off your feets and around your butt! Then they use scissors and cut all around your head and tail and body. And you can't move a snitch while they are doing this. Then when my Mom comes to get me they tell her that I was a NAUGHTY girl! Imagine the nerve of that! Who wouldn't get just a little nippy over all that!
I don't think I even look that different. My Mom says I do, though, and that I smell delicious! Thats something. I told my Mom after this she can just spray a little of that stuff she uses that smells good, on me, and we can skip the Beauty Spot.
I hope you all had a way better day than I did!

You poor thing. I think you should report this to the pawthorities.
PS: You do look very nice... but then I think you looked lovely before, too!

I think you look pretty and your furs are very shiny, but I understand how awful baths are. Try screaming like Ammy next time.

Stella! I think it was worth the torture. You look so shiny and fluffy. I don't like the blow dry or scissors part either, but the brushing and bath is fine with me. Don't worry, now that spring is here you will be dirty again soon.

You look very lovely and fluffy, Stella! Mom says it is just about time for me and Sister to head to the doggy wash, too. Since we went raw, our bodies are "detoxing" and Mom says we STINK!

Oh dear sis, This sounds like what would happen if I went to the spa... I used to have to wear a MUZZLE! Can you believe it!? Sweet little me!! Maybe next time you can come visit me and I will have my Mom help you. She's real good and doesn't make it scary. I think you look really nice. And maybe you will get lots of treats from your mom to make up for putting you through that! :)
