Chance : Looking Handsome

I knew something was rotten in Denmark when Far Side set the alarm so she and I could leave the house real early.  Yup I was right…she took me to the groomers…she said “Give him the works, with hypo allergenic shampoo and NO perfume”…then she left.

She came along to rescue me later that afternoon and she remembered to bring the bowl of ice water….cause getting handsome makes you real thirsty.  Far Guy said “Don’t they have water there?”  Far Side said “Yes they probably do, but unless he is coaxed he won’t drink their water.” She knows me well.

I am real handsome now, my white is white again and I am trimmed all over. 

The grass is turning green again and I spend most of my day outside herding squirrels and crows when the weather is nice…like in not windy…I hate the wind.

I made it through the winter.  Somedays I have to wear the special halter cause I need help getting up and down the steps but for the most part I am doing real good for 11 1/2 years old…going on 12.

  4. The Mollywog says "Lookin' good Chance. I, on the other hand, resemble a "bag dog" because I have not been to the groomer since August. She will be taking me to the groomer next week. He jokes "ask if there is a 2-for-1 special" because She desperately needs to be groomed as well!

  5. Oh my, Chance you are soooo handsome. Very happy to hear you made it through the winter. I speak from experience, getting old is tough, so I know how going up and down steps can be hard. You just keep on herding those pesky squirrels and crows. Have a great weekend.

  8. Looking good, Chance! Is that green grass I see in that picture? Must be spring in your part of the country, too. I know how it feels to be getting on in years, too. :-)

  25. Ok Chance now that you got all cleaned up I am going to have to get out the brush and scissors and work on Barney. On a really hot day he will experience a shampooing. I like to be sure there is vegetation up so that he won't go roll in the dirt. You Chance look really great in you black and white tuxedo.

  26. Wow! Did they use "volumizing" shampoo on him? He looks really "fluffy". I didn't tell my girls because they would want the same treatment and they could use it but the Frontline Plus and Allergy shot and special food take priority. Plus, I don't care for the one and only groomer they have around here. He looks so handsome! Nitty looks like she has mange she's shedding so much.
