Cheer up Duke

On Saturday Duke and I were just hanging out with nothing much to do. So I said "Hey Duke, can I get your picture?"
He shook his head NO!
So I asked again. "Duke, please, let me take your picture"
 This time he shook his head even harder NO NO NO
"But Duke, why not? All of our readers want to see you. You haven't been posting as much lately. What's wrong little buddy?"
He climbed up on the couch, hung his little white head and through the sniffles I heard him say in a very sad voice "I look scruffy"

(all together now)
"Is that all that's bothering you?" I asked him. "I can't have my very best friend feeling down. How about we go for a nice ride in the car, that will cheer you up."
We took that ride and when we got back Duke was feeling like a new man.
Isn't he handsome? And he's even smiling now.

Oh, very handsome indeed! I'll bet those grooming gals were all over you!

The Urban Cowboy said...

Good for Duke, got to go for a ride and everything!

Sandee said...

He's handsome indeed. The groomer is a very good thing. Just saying.

Have a terrific day and my very best to Duke. :)

Christine ~ JAZ Creations said...

Awe! He is so handsome! I get grumpy when I look scruffy too!

Donna said...

Hahahahaa!! Look at You Duke! Such a Handsome little man!!
Oh Ann, he's precious!

LDH said...

He is a handsome boy! I tried to comment earlier but it just wasn't working. Happy to stop back!

Anne said...

Look at that amazing new 'do. Duke looks absolutely awesome. I can see why he is posing like crazy now.

DK Miller said...

He is so very very handsome!!!

BeadedTail said...

You are very cute scruffy Duke but boy are you handsome with your new 'do!

tahtimbo said...

Duke, you look like a new dog! I guess that you just wanted to get out and about :)

Grace said...

A day at the salon cheers everyone up

Nessa said...

awwww... you cheer me up too Duke :)

the 3rd pic is so cute... how to see with so much 'cover'... hehe

Bossy Betty said...

The car ride did it! Yeah! Very sweet!

FishHawk said...

Did he hang his head out of the window along the way? I always do, and it makes me feel better! That is, except for when driving through a swarm of bugs. No, I don't like that a bit.

fullet said...

He's so hansome that I like him scruffy, but of course it's way better seeing him smiling.

Duni said...

Wow! Duke - you look so HANDSOME all spruced up like that. The blue collar suits you very well and you have an adorable smile :)

Jen said...

Hmmmmm...I think that I would definitely like to go for a ride in your magic car (I could use a makeover myself :o)

Russ AKA Grampy said...

Next time you go for a Magic ride Duke let me know. I want to go. Need some hair.

VanillaSeven said...

He definitely look fresher after you took him out :)

Daisy said...

You look fabulous, Duke! And I can tell you are very proud of your new hairdo.

Angela said...

Duke cleans up real good! I just love your Duke posts:)
Hope you are having a fantastic week<3

June Zach (Fledgling Blogger) said...

Wohoa! Our hero has got a new look! That's cool to see you in a new hairdo buddy Duke! ^_^

allotments4you said...

Duke I would just like to confirm that you look adorable Any way you are!!

Megan said...

Duke is too cute!

B Boys Mom said...

He sure is handsome. He must feel so good with his new hair cut.

Ann said...

Lin, not at all. The first lady I took him to actually lectured me because she found fleas on him. This one just takes the money, smiles and that's about it.

Urban cowboy, he was loving it :)

Sandee yes and I really need to take him more often than I do. I go about every 6 months and it should be more like every 4

Christine me too, could explain why I'm ALWAYS grumpy

Donna that he is :)

LDH so glad you did. Every once in a while I have problems commenting. I get lots of errors.

Anne he does look pretty cute after he gets groomed

DKMiller Duke says thank you

Beaded tail I like him scruffy but I think he was getting a little TOO scruffy

Tahtimbo don't we all?

Grace, I'm ready for my day at the salon. I'm in need of a cut too

Nessa Duke said he's happy to cheer you up any time

Bossy amazing what a car ride can do

FishHawk Duke likes to sit in the back with his front paws on the console between the two front seats. His other favorite spot is in my lap which makes it very hard to steer. Duke says the bugs aren't bad as long as you keep your mouth closed.

Fullet And now Duke can see all of you as well.

Duni he is a looker isn't he? Duke say thanks and I think he may have even winked at you

Jen the funny thing is it doesn't do it's magic on me

Russ Hope you have better luck than I do

Vanilla Seven he sure does. Maybe the wind did it

Daisy He does have a bit of an extra spring in his step

Angela yes he does, and a good week to you also

JuneZach Duke says thanks, he's feeling pretty cool now.

allotments4you Duke says thanks and there he goes with that winking again

Megan yes he is

B Boys mom I think he's feeling much better and he can even see without all that hair in his eyes.

Sharkbytes said...

Wow, I can see why Duke was so adamant. He is now very handsome indeed!

Ann said...

sharkbytes, yea I did go a little long between groomings. I'm sort of bad that way.

gayle said...

Ohh he looks so cute!!

Ann said...

Gayle, Duke says thank you very much :)

Poetic Shutterbug said...

He is a handsome little guy but I've gotta say I love that scruffy look :)

Ann said...

Poetic shutterbug, I like the scruffy looks too but I think he was actually a little beyond scruffy this time :)
