One last shaggy look

Right after work today Duke had an appointment with the groomers. We're trying a new one out and hopefully we like this one. The last one was ok up until the last time I took him there. She did a horrible job and rather than complain I just chose to not return. I'll give you one last look at his adorable shaggy face before the cut though.
You'll have to wait for a look at the handsome young Duke. Don't worry though, you will see his fancy new cut. Did I hear someone ask what he's wearing? I can't tell you, it's a surprise for Halloween.
I'm also now a little behind on visiting all of you but since tomorrow is Friday I'll have plenty of time tomorrow to get caught up.

Sharkbytes said...

Bossy Betty said...

Love this picture, but I can't wait to see the new 'do!

livintheblues said...

How could you force that poor dog into a hair cut..he says as he looks in the mirror at his own shaggy locks....:)

Lin said...

Oh, I can't wait to see the new "do"!!

Don't worry about not visiting, Ann! You deserve some time off, pally!

Sandee said...

A good groomer is worth their weight in gold. We have a great one and our dog is 85 pounds. That's a lot of hair. Can't wait to see the little man after him groom.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

Anne said...

He is so adorable! I think it looks like a superhero cape. Is he going to be Underdog for Halloween?

As Ahmad said...

what a cute and adorable dog you have ann! :D ♥ and i love the halloween costume ;)

Jean said...

Hmmm...I think Duke is a peace loving Hippie. Did you ask him if he wanted a trim?

Kloggers/Polly said...

Well he looks a jolly happy chappy at the moment so be hopes that he enjoys his haircut.

I used to trim my little westie by hand as their were no grooming parlours anywhere near to where we lived and as I didn't possess clippers I had to use scissors ... a very long job. This meant doing face one day - bottom another and so on. Fortunately, she was a good little dog and would stay patiently still and her coat took a very long time to grow. :)

I look forward to seeing a very smart young gentleman with my next visit ... hope all goes well.
Good luck!

Grace said...

That was the first thing that came to mind when I saw the pic - what is he wearing...Hmmm - yes, maybe a bit of a trim...

tahtimbo said...

I'm looking forward to seeing Duke's new look. Did they give him a little blue bow?

BeadedTail said...

Duke can pull off the shaggy look like no one else! We can't wait to see the new 'do though and also the Halloween surprise!

Char said...

He's so cute, we have to groom our cocker spaniel so I know what that's like. Will be watching for the pics of Duke's new "do". Oh, is he getting a "peticure" too? hehe

FishHawk said...

Has he come out from under the bed yet?

allotments4you said...

Poor Duke..fancy cutting off all that adorable hair now the weather is getting cold...I hope you have knitted him a nice warm jacket!!

Audrey said...

I like the shaggy Duke - he's cute :)
Hope the groomers turned out okay - there is nothing worse that a really bad haircut.

Russ said...

Duke is looking good as usual. I hope the hair cut comes out all right.Your lucky you can put something on Duke. Claudia won't allow it. Even in the Winter.

Sandra said...

Duke get an A for adorable, a P for precious and H is for handsome. love the photo even with long hair. can't wait to see the new duke. He looks a lot like one on a commercial on TV that i love.

Duni said...

Duke is such a cutie - shaggy or not!!!

Out on the prairie said...

I have one whose name is Doug, but he goes by Doggie.Have to drive a bit farther but worth it in the end.

June Zach (Fledgling Blogger) said...

Ohhh that cute shaggy Dukester! :)
Hope he'll look good with his new cut. ;)

I've got something for you at my blog, Ann. Check it out! :D

Leeuna said...

Ohhhhh. He is so adorable. I love the little pink tongue. I would just love to hug him. And now I can't wait to see his new hair cut AND his Halloween costume.

Ann said...

LDH Duke says thank you very much :)

Jenny, he's a cutie alright. I so enjoyed my visit to your blog and look forward to visiting you again

Sharkbytes mop head is a perfect description...lol

donna I have to agree with you

country mouse studio hmm, someone else had the same problem yesterday, hope it's not a problem on my end

bossy betty I think you'll be impressed

livintheblues I couldn't help it, he really did need it :)

Lin I won't make you wait long

Sandee wow 85 pounds is a lot of hair.

anne underdog is a good guess but nope that's not it :)

as ahmad thanks, he is a cutie, just wait till you see the whole costume, he's adorable in it :)

jean well long haired hippie would have been a good choice for him but since he asked for the trim he'll be something different :)

kloggers Duke is always a jolly happy chappy :). I can't imagine trying to trim Duke by hand myself. He's a bit of a fidgety although the groomer was able to deal with it quite easily I doubt I would fair so well.

Grace I didn't even think when I took the picture that I wasn't ready to reveal Duke's costume. More than a "bit" of a trim is in order

tahtimbo no blue bow but he did get something

beaded tail I like his shaggy look but unfortunately Wade does not

Char no pedicure just the clip

fishhawk never went under it, he is quite proud of his new look :)

allotments4you Duke has his own wardrobe, and he is now wearing one of his fancy sweaters when he goes outside

audrey I do too, bad haircuts for dogs or moms are the pits :)

russ you would not believe how excited Duke gets when I pull out one of his sweaters or bandannas. He really likes dressing up, and it's fun for me too

Sandra Duke really made the grade didn't he...lol

Duni :) yep he pulls cute off well

out on the prairie I wouldn't mind the extra drive if the service is good. That's cute, using the name Doggie

JuneZach I'm sure you will be amazed at the difference

Leeuna the new cut will be revealed in the next post, but you'll have to wait a bit longer for the costume

the old geezer. well thanks for becoming a follower, I'll pop on over and visit you in a bit.

Catherine said...

And the result was perfect!!

Ann said...

Catherine, yes I believe it was :)
