Stanley and me continue to be very busy. The other day we started working on one of the bird feeders in the yard. We thought it ruined the ambiance so we figured we'd better take it down. We haven't gotten it down yet but we are working on it. We also have removed many bushes and flowers. We are totally remodeling.
Stanley posted a picture the other day of him hiding in the toy box. I decided that was a good place to hide so I decided to do it too. Can you see me?
Our peeps surprised us today and took us to a place they called "groomers". I don't think they felt too bad because they just handed us over to strangers and left! We were scared but thought the ladies were nice. That is until they started making us have a bath! Stanley was laughing at me until it was his turn. And the other thing they did was trim up our face hair. I can see out of my eyes again! I'm embarrassed to say they used the same noise machine and trimmed up our butts too. I hope that never happens again! Mom thinks I look real handsome. I even wore the scarf until we got home and Stanley started using it to drag me around. I finally weigh 10 pounds 3 ounces but Stanley is much
Here's my side view so you can admire the total effect. Mom said my fur is silky soft. Stanley is more woolly and poodle-ish. Can you see my muscles?
In case you didn't notice, my paws are nice and even now instead of scraggly looking. It never bothered me but mom seems impressed. I don't know what difference it makes when I get in the mud anyway.
The biggest surprise was what Stanley looked like when he was done being groomed. Our peeps were shocked! All his woolly hair was fluffed up and the groomers said he looked like a cloud. I took one look at him and I knew he looked like a disco king from the 80's! He had a big ol' afro! This picture doesn't even capture the effect.
I have to admit, he is good looking. I mean, we share DNA so why shouldn't he? Mom said the fluff out makes him look softer and more puppy-like. Stan says he looks more studly!
When mom and dad heard Stanley call himself studly they said, "Oh boys, we have another appointment for you on June 5th." But we aren't sure what it is because it was a word we didn't learn yet. Anybody know what "neuter" means?
