Come listen to my story....

....bout a dog named Gibbs. Poor scruffy pup... (can't think of anything to rhyme with Gibbs so gotta end my song right there)

Any way, Gibbs is looking pretty scruffy and let me tell you why. It's a battle that I lost.

Wade will always say to me "He needs a haircut. If you take him I'll pay for it"
My response is "OK, call and make the appointment and I'll take him"
He will not call even though the card with the groomers number is right there on the refrigerator. Instead he'll say something like "It was just a thought"
This infuriates me and being the stubborn person that I am I dig my heels in and refuse to make the phone call.
Alas, poor scruffy Gibbs is the one who pays the price. Of course he really doesn't mind that he looks scruffy but I think the neighborhood dogs are starting to laugh at him so I broke down and made the call. He'll be headed to the groomers on Monday.

His Nibs will be looking very handsome come Monday (only thing I could think of to rhyme with Gibbs!) although I think he's pretty darn cute in his scruffy state! Deb

I hear ya! Oh, how I can relate to this!! Gibbs sure is cute...even if scruffy...but he will probably feel better when he gets all spiffed up!

Hi nibs mr Gibbs, got that from Deb... is adorable and looks really cute scruffy. i like my men scruffy not clean shaven so he is fine with me. waiting to see the new Gibbs.

Sandra said...

ps... bob has never made an appt, or made a phone call at all... when he talks to his daughters i have to make the call, talk and then hand him the phone. if anything relied on him calling it would never happen

Gibbs looks adorable with his shaggy furs :)

Awww, the Gibbers looks handsome!
When we had long haired babies I did it ALL...got so tired of it. I also now MAKE Larry go to the Vet, pet store shopping etc...I told him we are in this TOGETHER! He knew his easy street ride was over.
But now, we have the short haired varieties and aside from constant vacuuming, we are a happy camping clan! It would cost $40 to $60 bucks a pop.
More money for bones and toys now...;o)
Gibbs needs a pugbuddy...Hahaaa

Grrrrr....scroll down to the red bedspread and THEN click on photo! I HATE how google has screwed things up!

Marg said...

Oh Gibbs, we can't wait to see you with your new hair do. Bet you will feel much better. We think you look cute any old way.

He still has eyes showing, but should be pretty cool when done.

Now I'm going to have the theme song to the Beverly Hillbillies in my head for God knows how long. Thankyouverymuch.

Poor Gibbs. That just a thought thing never seems to work does it. Make sure you collect the money before you go pick Gibbs up. Just a thought.

Have a woof woof day Gibbs. My best to your wonderful mom. ♥♥♥

I was going to mention the grooming thing a few posts ago but I hate to be a nag...

Christine said...

He looks adorable looking up at you so trustingly!

smalltownmommy said...

I think he looks handsome even if he is scruffy. I can't wait to see the post grooming photos.

The only time I recall Bud using the phone to MAKE a call was last March...911, when I had a heart attack. But, when it comes to making ANY appointments I get this "You're better at it". B.S.

Gibbs is cute no matter.

BeadedTail said...

What a frustrating hubby! Have you called to make his bits appt too so you can get a kitty?

Ida said...

Well Gibbs is cute "scruffy" or not. I do think you made the right choice to call though.

Reeni Pisano said...

I think he looks CUTE! I wonder if he feels lighter after his haircut? I always do. :)

Lin said...

Ugh. I'd have to kill Wade. At least if HE made the appointment, I'd take him...but to make you do all of the work. Ugh.

GratefulPrayerThankfulHeart said...

Scruffy is adorable, in my opinion. I get Raider groomed only because he gets matted. I love his soft poofyness

Poor Gibbs...
maybe he'll look all handsome this time tomorrow.
My Buster needs a serious bath... and some TLC--- if it will just warm up so I can do the deed. It's no small task... he's a big boy. (german sheprodor)
