Here’s A Shocker


The weather is to get very hot and high humidity . There is a heat advisory out for the week .

Papa and I took Miggs for her spa day as she needed to get bathed and all cleaned up have her nails trimmed and get her shaved as her heavy shaggy coat was way to hot for her !

Summer 2013 (18 of 18)


                                                                   and now the shocker !


Summer 2013 (4 of 10)

                                                      She doesn’t look like the same dog does she ?

Summer 2013 (32 of 32)                                                                              Before !


Summer 2013 (1 of 10)

                                                                                 After !

This is the closest she has ever been shaved and this groomer has been the only one that actually was able to clip her face . At first it was a shock to Papa and I when we went to pick her up and she had a bit of a shamed look on her face and felt a little exposed but she needed it to keep her cool cause even in the AC with the some what shavings she got in the past she would pant like crazy and more so with the longer fur . Last night was the first night she actually had a good sleep and didn’t pant her head off !

Summer 2013 (9 of 10)

When she is all shaggy she looks like her dad but now she looks like her mom who was all hound !

                                                     So are you shocked yet at Miggs new do !

                                  She now looks like my old dog Bessie I had as kid on the farm !

                                               Miggs your still and always will be our pretty girl !

                                   Until next time  Have a good day and stay cool in this heat wave !

                                                                  Thanks for popping by !

She looks like she'll be much more comfortable, that's for sure! I wish I could cool off like that! :) It's to be horribly hot and humid here next week too...we're not looking forward to that! Hope you can stay cool!

Miggs looks cute shaved. We had our Goldie Girl shaved too. Cute photos of Miggs!

I think Miggy looks just beautiful in her new Summer "do"... I bet she feels so much better!... Tessy's hair is short and she still gets sooo hot in these 100 degree days we have been having!... xoxo Julie Marie

I know how hot all that hair is for poor Miggy and deep down I bet she is happy to be cooler. And as they say in the human world, when you get an unflattering hair cut.,.'oh well, it'll grow back. Don't let Miggy near any mirrors!!! What she don't know, won't hurt her!!!

Pat said...

Wow! What a change! But it sure must feel good to get rid of all that hair ...especially in this hot, humid weather! said...

Teddy was shaved when I got here to care for him.

He looked so tiny like a puppy look.

Two weeks have gone by and it is growing in. Perhaps

they will have to do it again. It is hot,hot humid.

July and August is a real hot months still to go.

Teddy is doing good with me. I have given him

tender loving care big time.

Happy Sunday my friend.

Are you sure he picked up the right dog? :)

LesleyAnn said...

My goodness. She in no way looks like the same dog. She even holds her head higher after the grooming. She's a beauty either way. That groomer did a great job.

You have a pretty display of flowers in your header photo.

Hi Elaine... Oh she is still just as cute as every, but I did think she looked like a different dog!!
It sound like the weather we have had of and on all summer!! So hot you just melt in a minute outside!!
I try to keep thinking...snow will be here for a longer time so I try to enjoy the summer!!
I don't have AC!!
Keep cool!!

Gail said...

She is still beautiful. Those eyes are still there. May she be comfortable.

Leah said...

She looks so cute.... it is funny how they act when the are first clipped but oh she is going to feel so much better.... :)

Primitive Stars said...

OMG!!!! I thought you were pulling my leg until I looked closer at the pictures, wow, Miggs looks so different but still beautiful.....Blessings Francine.

Faye Henry said...

I bet she feels a whole lot cooler..
So cute anyway..xo

Terri said...

Wow- she doesn't look like the same dog at all, but I'll bet she is so much more comfortable!

Okay, add me to the list of those "wow'd" by how Miggie looks! But I have the same reaction when Charlie has the same thing done to him. I know it makes him feel much, much better and I know Miggie is feeling that same way--She'll have a beautiful coat again when fall comes and it will be perfect for the colder weather when it arrives!

Chris at Red Gate Farm said...

I'm sure Miggs will enjoy having her "coat off" for the heat of summer! And I do agree, she looks like a different dog but very, very stylish!


GizmoGeodog said...

Oh gosh she's only half the dog she was now...but I know she'll be so much more comfortable

SlimDoggy said...

She certainly looks a lot cooler. Luckily I have short hair, so I don't have to worry about haircuts! Thanks for joining our Hop.

Jessica @ YouDidWhatWithYourWeiner said...

We've been watching the news and seeing how hot it is everywhere else. It's even 80+ here which is not common. Glad you found a way to cool off. I think you look cute either way :)
