Not so Wordless Wednesday

We got an early Christmas present!!!!

Went to the GROOMER!!!!
We went to the GROOMER!!!!!!

Good News???
and just WHY is that GOOD NEWS Dory??? That grooming place is SCARY!!!

We look GOOD!!!
...cause I look MAAAAHHHHHHVELOUS!!!!! Everything is even, and
NO OUCHIES like when Mama did it!!

Note from Mama:  I hope Dory doesn't get used to this....I'll be taking them twice a year to get groomed in December and June...There are some areas that I just don't want to be the "bad guy" and do...one is their ears (their hair needs to be pulled out....), the other is at ummm the other end and I can't be that rude to my babies...;-).


Kari in WeHo said...

you do look wonderful!

Tank said...

You definitely look fab... both of you! Kudos to your groomer. I hate it when they don't get it even (well, actually, I don't care but the OG hates it.)

Before we moved, the VET & groomer that I went to were big on plucking the ear hair, but the VET I go to now says that it's totally not necessary... I must say that I don't miss it one bit!

Sunny said...

You both look maaarvelous!
I don't like the groomer myself, well I like the groomer just not what she does!
Luv, Lucy (Woof!)

Samantha said...

You look great Dory! Glad you survived the groomers!! :p

I groom Rugby myself but I think I did such a wretched job last time I should take him in so he can look good for the holidays.

Mango said...

Certainly worth the trip. You look all shiney are tidy for the holidays.


Stella said...

Pretty as a picture, Dory and Bilbo!

I just needs my feet trimmed up and then I will be fine. Mom does it because I bite the groomer just a little and I am not so welcome back there.


Frankie Furter said...

Hi Dory & Bilbo. I agree that you do look mahvalous Darlings.
I don't have to go to that groomer thingy. I am sure glad. Mom sometimes gives me a few little snips that she says is a sanitary clip. Don't know about that, "BUTT"... hehehe
I had mom get the table out today and put all of Bilbo's pressies out so that I can start wrapping them.
She got a bunch of little boxes out.. NOT NOT no way. They just get in the way and slow down the getting down to it.
Don't worry Bilbo, I'll wrap them MY way. OK???
I got your card ready too. I am a pretty good typist...but my PAWwriting pretty much sniffs. I did my best though. AND... I hid a little personal Pee-Mail there for JUST YOU. I hope you can find it. hehehe

Madi and Mom said...

Hi Dory you do look maaaaavelous and Bilbo you look quite dapper. I bet you two smell wonderful too.
Mom I agree there are some things best left to the groomer.

Miley said...

omd!!!! you look adorable!!!!

Cloud the Wonder Dog said...

Oh wow, you two look great! And we LOVE your new header pic, Dory!


Just Add Walter said...

Nellie and Calvert said...

Dory & Bilbo,

We can't argue with you, you do look absolutely marvelous.

We're loving Bilbo's outfit!

Our groomer has been booked for weeks, mom can't get them to fit us in.. hehehe... we feel so terrible; NOT!


JackDaddy said...

Ah, butt hair! And there you have it! :)
Fortunately, Jack doesn't believe in butt hair, so he is not allowed to have any! :)

Martha and Bailey said...

So important to look your best at theis time of year!
Well there are all those parties and friends and family visiting so a trip to the groomers has to be good.
Nice to see both of looking so good.
Martha & Bailey xx

Bijou said...

Hi Dory,

You and Bilbo look pawtastic. All purdy for the holidays. I bet you both smell good too. Mom says I have stinky Frito feet and will need a bath soon! BOL


Santa and Minnie said...

Ooh...you two look just fabulous and "christmasy".

Our mummy grooms us but we wouldn't let her touch our nails and earholes. So we still need to go to the groomer's for those jobs.

Dip-Dip and The Bridge said...

You two both look gorgeous. We are so glad we don't have to have this done - we are practically hysterical when they do our nails!
Wags and kisses, Dinah Bridget and Elliot xx

Mack and Sally Ann said...

You look very nice.
Sally Ann

The OP Pack said...

Ouch is right, Dory and Bilbo - we can imagine that must not feel too good. We are so good that we only have to get bathed and brushed. But we must say, you both look fantabulous. And we love your holiday header too.

Wild Dingo said...

and ya, i still don't clip the nails... i suppose i could train them to let me, because i train them in so many other behaviors...but it's on "the list" and i'll get to it some day. for now, let the dogtor be the "bad guy" for nail trimmin!

you two look maaahvalous!

You two look simply mahvelous!!! I'm not keen on the actual grooming part, but I like the oooh-ing and aaahh-ing afterward!

Emma Rose said...

You both look gorgeous! Just in time for the holidays. Perfect!

hero said...

You look all prim and proper now, Dory... guess the visit was really worth it. Perhaps mama would be a pro too someday without the ouchies.

Licks, hero

ScrapsofMe said...

Dory, you look a-dory-ble! Bilbo even looks cute (not as cute ad you though!). Tell your Mom Happy Birthday and give her a woofie kissie from me.

Just want to wish you and your family Happy Holidays. I just posted my last post for the year ... we are going on a holiday break. Lots of Golden Holiday Woofs, Sugar

Piappies World said...

Hello dear Dory and Bilbo!

You both look so fabulous! You're so ready for the holidays! We also love the sweaters and scarf.

We also don't go to the groomers, we got low-maintenance fur. Usually mommy or the V-E-T are the one who do our nails and cleaning.

ocmist said...

Oh, Dory, You both look TOTALLY GREAT! Mom appreciates your groomer's work as she used to be apprenticed to a groomer for a while and worked with the top one in town for a year or so until all the little itchy hair bits drove her NUTS, she says, (Not to mention that stinky stuff from the other end!)

I'd almost want to go to a groomer if I thought that they could to something about my poor ears, but short of plastic surgery, Mom says she doesn't think anything can be done. Dott
