Chance : Grooming

Hey , It is I the handsome blogging Border Collie. During that great meeting of the minds back on Monday, Far Side said..Chance needs to go to the groomer. Groomer..Me? I don't think so, but she made an appointment anyway. She said "Chance you have a problem with your hinder-binder." Well If I knew what a hinder-binder was I would fix it. She said those mats you have on your butt from being in the pool and then running willy nilly in the woods..those mats have got to go. My "Girdle area" or "Panty hair" must be trimmed..Far Side told the groomer..you can shave his butt if you want to..it will grow back fast. Then they left me there ...all alone. What if they never come back? What if Far Guy doesn't remember where I am at?

There was a very friendly cat to greet me..he isn't a very good watch cat but just look at his wonderful coloring!

Well I got the works at the Dogs Paw, my toes nails were trimmed, my hair on my feet was clipped, I was bathed and brushed and clipped, and they squeezed my anal glands, eewww is that sharing too much information? ..they cleaned my ears..I got the works..the only thing they didn't touch was my teeth..but Far Side cleans them anyway.

So now I have a naked butt, an almost non existant hinder- binder..well not quite..but all the mats are gone and my panty hair is pretty thin. Far Side remembered where I was at, she rescued me and said "OH Chance, you are one handsome lookin' dude...you are kinda cute with a shaved butt! Look at your white hair..it is practically glowing! " When we got home she wanted to take photographs of me..I played hard to get for quite awhile. No, she wasn't allowed to take any butt photos either..so don't even ask .. you can ask her other questions about me if you like. I will answer them all:)

  1. And what a fine fellow Chance is, too! The whites are "whites" and the blacks are gleaming. Good boy.

  5. Chance, you are a hottie!! Bet all the gal dogs fight over you. Don't worry too much about your naked behind. My border collie had to have her panty area shaved every summer because of those nasty tangles and her hair always grew back. You are still as handsome as ever.

    Connie, You are good therapy. You made me laugh out loud at your comment. I love your humor. I think I will stick with the chocolate. And when it snows I will try to send some of the positive sunshine you have given me back up north to you. Thank you so much.

  6. What a beautiful dog! Hey, Chance, Fuzzy has to have his backend shave also. Those mats are something else in border collies!

  7. Chance, How long did you go for training? Did your people work with you a lot during training? I'm a black lab. My people gave me a home .. I needed training because I was wild. Were you? Bella

  9. Chance, you are such a super dog to put up with such stuff. You still look good from the front view, as handsome as ever. Red looks good on you.

  10. Chance, I, Maggie, have that problem too. I get brushed and it still doesn't help much. Maybe I should tell my pack leader to take me to a booty shop.

    Chance, I thought you were brave???
    Well, every dog has his modesty to worry about.

  13. I couldn't stop laughing - but am feeling a little cheated that you wouldn't let us see a pic of your butt!

    You need to tell Far Side that if she brushed your panty hair every time you come back home from the woods, then you would need to shave that butt of yours! ;-)

  14. Hi Chance! You look fabulous! WOW!!! Personally, from a gal's point of view, I would have liked to see the "hinder-binder" :)

    Kisses,

  15. Mildred, Chance is the official Halloween Greeter..he loves all the small children coming over for candy..only ten of them usually show up..so he usually doesn't dress up.
    Anonymous, We have taken Chance to training classes and spent some time one on one with a trainer. Yes, he has lots of energy..especially when he was a puppy..he is almost five now..so he is settling down a little.
    Thanks everyone for your comments:)

  16. I love your Chance. And the doggie talk is so cute. I can just imagine Chance and Buddy thinking and talking like that. So cute. He looks good - all cleaned up. What a pretty coat.

    Hope you all have a great weekend.

  18. OH, me and the girls are laughing our hineys off! Tori doesn't mind the groomer, Trixie is another story. You would think she's being murdered... just trimming her nails is an excursion into the netherworld (for me, not her). I can't stand to listen to her yowling... I take her to the vet to trim her nails, I hate it. It's time and I'm dreading it. I always do. I wish she were as easy as Miss Tori!

    Chance is gorgeous. He always is. :) But we really wanted to see his shaved butt. LOL
