Summer 'Do'

JJ likes his hair longer and scruffy.  Grandma J can't figure out if he's trying to be macho dog, you know, a real honest to goodness dogs dog.


But, in reality, it's summer in Central Texas.  Today the temperature broke 100 degrees.   Grandma J decided to get JJ's locks snipped.  It was for his own good.  And to be honest?  When JJ goes to Daycare, they have a few doggie pools, and it just makes it easier to swim with short hair.  Grandma J doesn't know why she shared that tidbit with you because JJ is afraid of water.


So, when she picks up JJ from his afternoon grooming, he is ticked.....he won't look at her.  He's seething!

JJ's not  a stupid dog.  He knows he has the upper hand, and as soon as they get home, he let's Grandma J know  that she owes him.


He stood his ground in front of the cupboard where his treats are kept.....and howled.  Just so you know, the picture is only blurry where JJ's tail and snoot are going a mile a minute.


Then he snatched his new toy that he always gets after grooming to soothe his damaged image, and had a chewing session.


Grandma J did finally get a picture of JJ to show his AZ family that he was ready for summer and not getting fat.  This is his summer look, except there is no blue Mohawk like last year.

xoxo Grandma J

Our dogs don't howl for treats, they leap in the air like kangaroos... and they're labs.

Ha! So cute! I used to shave Koho in the summer. It was pretty funny for a couple of weeks and she hid her head in shame. But once it grew in just a little it was fine AND it wasn't all over my house. I haven't yet decided if Rigby will get the summer do this year or not.

LOVE his summer do! Now if he gets splashed at day care he won't feel ridiculous and have to ask for a blow dryer.
The treat situation is about the same here. Except ours is in a canister on the counter top.
Please give JJ an extra one and tell him it's from me!

Aw he is such a cutie!! I loved when our dogs got their summer cuts, but they were a bit annoyed at us until they realized how much cooler they were!

Well, I am so glad you don't let JJ grow his hair out like some hippie dogs. :)
Cocoa and ozzie have no idea what a groomer is. Slackers.
