You can't believe what happened to me and Stanley today. We're very embarrassed about the whole thing. This afternoon mom and dad took us to the spa. Now we don't mind the spa. I know I'm not supposed to like smelling pretty but if I told the truth, and I always do try to tell the truth, (except for saying I was hang gliding last week), I like looking handsome. I think I am quite handsome and mom says I am, so I know it's true. Stanley is handsome too and always likes to primp in the mirror, so we're on the same page with this. We just can't help it, we're handsome Doods.
Anyway, one of the benefits of going to the spa is that I get trimmed and it shows off my fit physique and long legs. I work really hard to look fit. I eat a healthy diet and get lots of exercise. When my hairs get long sometimes I even look chubby, but the truth is I am not chubby at all. So I was looking forward to showing off my body and was even thinking of asking mom for a muscle shirt. But that was before the disaster.
So we got dropped off, bathed, and then it happened . . . the spa lady cut off my tail!!!!! Well, not actually my tail, but all the hair on my tail! All the fringe that has been growing so nicely . . . the very fringe that my mom croons over, GONE! Yes, gone, gone, gone!!!! And she didn't even apologize! Nope, she finished me off and then grabbed Stanley. Then, she did the same thing to Stanley!! Both of us had our tails cut off!! This is a nightmare!
Although all the fringe is gone, the spa lady left more hair on Stanley's tail than mine. Dad says he looks like he has a raccoon's tail. But me . . . it looks like there's a snake stuck to my butt! So now we are trying to figure out how we're going to get by while waiting for it all to grow back. We had a meeting and decided the best thing was to try and blend in.
|So I'll just stay on the couch.|
|And Stanley will stay on the kitchen floor.|
We only hope that our tails will grow back quickly and this never happens again!
