Fur Stealing - Final Result

As you know from the "teaser" we posted yesterday, our pawrents bought all the stuffs to do the fur stealing at home.  If you don't believe me, here are a few really bad quality photos:

Our furs had gotten very long.  Mom said you could no longer see my long doodle legs cuz my hair was so fluffy it make me look short and obese!  And Stanley was looking so fat that dad kept telling him he was going to have to go to Weight Watchers!  So our pawrents decided since we are so young that it might be a good idea to invest in the proper tools and learn how to fully groom us.  There's a reason mom calls us "hair growing machines".   So this was the very first time we did this together.  Mom cut me and dad cut Stanley.  Here is what we look like now:









After we gots all our hair cut off we looked in the mirror to see if we were bleeding or anything.  We were so glad that we were not!  And best of all, we still had our ears and tails!  And now furiends, I have a confession to make.  I am afraid you may find this shocking so maybe you might need to go outside and pee before reading any further.  I'll wait . . .

OK, are you ready?  Me and Stanley kinda liked having our pawrents steal our hair.  When we went to the hair stealing place it was fine 'cept we were away from our mom and dad for about 87 hours and we hated that!  And when they steal our furs at home we get so many pets you cannot believe it!  Mom can't keep her hands off my soft furs!  So we hope you won't think less of us knowing that we really didn't mind it at all.  And mom said we are very well behaved on the grooming table.  (But I did have to fidget when they got the nail grinder out cuz THAT just ain't natural!)

Mom wanted me to point out that our cuts came out nice and smooth.  Sometimes with our curls it's hard to see that in the photos.  Our furs started out around 3" long and now we are 1/2" long.

And now we want to thank our bestest furiend and fellow band mate Agent 0087E for the birfday card we got in the mail today.  It was the best one ever!

And now 1 final last thing.  If you want to be in our post for Valentines Day, send us a short video (MP4 will be best) of any doggie or kitty doing something silly (twirling, rolling, any movement will do).  We will need it in the next few days.

Murphy & Stanley

Whew. At first I was not sure how that post was going to end. I have to say, your pawrents did a grrrrreat job with the fur stealing! Looking good, doods!

KB Bear said...

I think you both look incredibly svelte and handsome. Stanley - I think that Taffy will approve!

I think it's great that you all thought that at-home grooming was much better than going to the groomer. Yay!

Did they do your nails yet?

Murphy said...

Yup, all done!

Cara n Crew said...

yoW we were worried for you Doods :D you both look great - all spiffy and ready for Valentines day :) make some good points about letting your folks steal your furs instead of somebuddy else...maybe your pressie was a good score after all :)

Ruby said...

Wowsa! You Doods look FABulous!!!! My Ma does my furs too, butts she sucks at it!!! she has to do me in two sessions cause I'm such a fuss bucket! and there is NO WAY she's gettin' near me with a nail grinder!!! I hates those thingies!! She takes me to the vetties where they do a quick and good job at cuttin' my talons...easier for everyone! BOL
I have to say, I gives your peeps a big HIGH PAW on your fur cuts!! Ma knows how hard it is to get a nice even line on curly furs! My leggies take about a half hour to get close to even, so Good Job peeps!!!! WoooHooo!
Now that card is just PAWSOME!!! Very cool....☺

Your pawrents did a great job! We agree it is much better to stay home and get your furs stolen then have it done some place else.

scotsmad said...

You look good, doods. Your pawrents did a great job. We usually look a bit funny after our sessions...sometimes SHE has to cut bits off for a few days so we look even..

XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

Molly The Wally said...

Doods you are looking good and although we hate the fur stealers we have to say mum and dad did a fabulous job and yes being at home is far better than being left for 87 billion hours at the groomers. Have a super Saturday.
Best wishes Molly

Wowsers Murphy, I didn't think you could look any more cute and cuddly..... Your pawrents should beware, others might discover their talent. Mind you, I couldn't get images of sheep-shearing out of my head... &*()

Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

DOOOOOOOOOOODS you look SUPER. We had a lot of concern over these "BIRFDAY" pressies, butt your mom and dad did GRRRRRREAT and you didn't even have to leave the comfort of your home to have it done. Now THAT is super fur SURE. Our mom has those Electric BUZZard thingys... and she uses them on our feets and to give us... a sanitary ... We actually LOVE it... we lay on dad's lap and she runs the BUZZard thingy. BUTT we DON't Have the electric nail grinder... she uses hand clippers and a Glass File.
You doods are gonna have all the wimmen of Blogville going WILD!!
BRAVO to your mom and dad fur a job well done.

Golden Woofs! SUGAR said...

Hailey and Zaphod and their Lady said...

Your parents did a great job. you both look great. We are lucky we don't need fur stealers. We wish our Lady was more organized, but she isn't so we won't have a fun video of us . . . sigh!

Mason Kern said...

Oh I will get on that mission right away guyz! You two should look very spiffy on your dates now!


sprinkles said...

I used to have a poodle mix that I'd sometimes clip at home. She hated it and fought back, so she didn't get groomed as often as she should have. I just did it all with scissors though, I didn't have the fancy schmancy stuffs y'alls got.

Your mom and dad did a great job!

Idaho PugRanch said...

Oh your peeps did a great job! You two look soooo handsome

Kat said...

Your coats are looking good. Not bad for a first time job! Think your Humans will get creative with the razor and scissors? I've seen some pretty..... unique poodles on the interwebz.

Wyatt said...

Jazzi said...

Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

We think you two look FABULOUS! And honestly, we're with you - as much as we give Mom a hard time during the hair-stealing process, it is WAY better to do it at home where the hair-stealing in interspersed with pets and hugs and kisses and treats. And we're not away from home, and we can always count on visits from Dad. So it's definitely better (although our Mom definitely has to work on the whole toe nail thing...)! But you boys look GREAT! Happy birthday!

Not bad for your first cut. It looks awesome... Trust me. I know. My first time was like... My niece's reaction when they saw it was... "Tita! What did you do!!!"

Good job, mom and dad.
