Happy Dog

Doesn't Duke look happy
do you know why he's so happy? Well let me tell you.
I'm sure it's pretty obvious that he over due for a hair cut once again. Saturday he's going to the groomer and he's really excited about it.
We aren't going to the same one as last time though. I know I said I would since I really did like her but my biggest problem is she doesn't have Saturday hours. So in order to get Duke there I almost have to take a day off for it.
Well the other day I was reading our small local paper and saw an add for a groomer
This one is much closer to home than the last one and she has Saturday hours. Duke liked the fact that it says he'll be treated like a star. 
I wonder what this one will say when I tell her Duke is a blogger and I need to take pictures? Of course that's if I don't chicken out.

oooh how cute, do take pics, I want to see!

Poetic Shutterbug said...

It's the perfect spot for Duke because he absolutely should be treated like a star.

Sandee said...

I can't wait to see Duke's new do this coming Saturday. He's so handsome anyway, but there isn't anything like being groomed proper to bring out the very best.

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

Sharkbytes said...

She had better say YES for free advertising! Duke is such a smiler!

Ann Nichols said...

Oh I hope Duke (and you ) like her just as much! He is handsome now...with all that lovely hair...just imagine how he'll look after grooming!

Beebeebabs said...

I like Duke - seem like he love to be in pictures tfs!!!

Doris Sturm said...

Duke looks great to me right now :-)

He likes going to the groomers? Most dogs dread it - I do Gizzy myself. I don't think he's ever been and I don't want to start it now and stress his lil' ole' heart ... glad Dukey likes it and I bet he'll be handsomer than ever. Can't wait to see his photo!

Ginny said...

Duke does look very happy!! I love that glint in his eyes! Hope you come back Saturday with pictures and a full report.

BeadedTail said...

Oh you can't chicken out! We want to see Duke getting the star treatment he deserves!

Anny said...

Duke is already a star and he sure is looking very happy :) Hope he'll have a great day getting pampered at the spa :)

Katie, Julep and Derby's Mom said...

Oh ... I would ask her how much experience she has grooming westies - you don't want him looking like a poodle!

Look forward to the post-grooming photo's.

Lin said...

How do you not have Saturday hours?? Don't most people work during the week??? That's odd.

Go ahead and tell her about the blog--most people have no clue what that means anyway. :)

Kloggers/Polly said...

Gosh Ann hasn't it flown by since you last took Duke to be clipped?
Do they use one of those Hoover versions that sucks the fur up a tube and cuts to the same length or is it done with the old style metal clippers?
Do you wait and watch whilst he is cut? I think I would find it quite hard to walk out and leave him there.

We will all look forward to seeing him groomed and clipped once more!

Sugar the Golden Retriever said...

Woof! Woof! Happy DUKE. Star treatment indeed. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

tahtimbo said...

It looks like Duke is going to have a great time. I look forward to the pictures. Oh, is he going to get a blue ribbon? I remember when I used to take our dogs in to be groomed, they would always come back smelling of perfume and wearing ribbons :)

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi, Duke is a cutie --even if he does need a haircut... BUT--be sure and take pictures when he does get his new "do"....

FishHawk said...

Pretend like you are doing an undercover investigation, and don't tell her what is going on until after it is too late. Of course, as long as Duke is happy...

Josep said...

I can't wait to see Duke's new look! But he always looks adorable.

Philippa said...

Since Duke is already a star, I'm sure this will do wonders for her business!

ratieh said...

haha..what a very happy dog!

can't wait to see the new Duke. =P

Russ aka Grampy said...

Duke is excited because he knows he is a Star. Now he should get the recognition that he deserves.
Go for it. Can't wait to see the pictures.

Marg said...

Oh you have to take pictures of that Star Duke having his makeover. We can't wait to see Duke. But we just don't know how you can be more handsome than you are now. Take care.

Audrey said...

Can't wait to see the new hair cut! I've had the same hairdresser for over 20 years now. Change isn't easy.

Lisa - Alterity Button Jewelry said...

He does look so happy...and handsome, as usual ;)

Out on the prairie said...

Mine costs 3 times what I pay, but when you get a good groomer it is hard to go anywhere else.

Sandra said...

not only is Duke smiling in anticipation, he is winking at me. take those photos on Saturday we will be waiting to see how much duke enjoys himself.

Roschelle said...

Duke looks very happy and as handsome as ever. Good luck with the new groomer :)

Donna said...

Don't you DARE chicken out!!! Take those pictures Girl! The groomer will also probably do a better job on Duke as Well if she knows it'll be documented!
He's So beautiful....I'm Almost tempted go go get me a puppy...Almost...Hahaa

Bossy Betty said...

Just don't let them put those star-thingys in Duke's beautiful eyes!

DSS said...

Louis definitely needs a hair cut as well. But I'm torn. I find him so absoluely adorable when he is all shaggy. He, on the other hand, is highly embarrassed and doesn't even want to go to daycare when he is overdue for a grooming.


Daisy said...

I hope he gets to wear those fancy star sunglasses!

Ann said...

Tanyia, I'm going to try

poetic shutterbug he thinks so :)

sandee I think he just looks so grown up when he gets a cut but he's cute as heck all shaggy

sharkbytes lol, you would think

ann me too, he always looks great when I first get him home

beebeebabs, sometimes yes, and sometimes no :)

doris we tried to groom him ourselves but I bought a cheap pair of clippers and it wouldn't take a thing

ginny well I'll have pictures for sure don't know if they'll be taken AT the groomers or not though. we'll see

beaded tail wanna make a bet? I'll try and be brave

anny yes he does seem to have the impression he is a star

katie oh no, I didn't think to ask. YIKES

Lin that's what I said, she obviously must get a good enough business during the week

kloggers yeah, can you believe it. all the ones that I've been to so far have used the old fashioned clippers

sugar he can't wait

tahtimbo I sure hope so. don't know what he'll get, the last one gave him a bandanna

betsy I go back and forth between liking him freshly groomed and a little shaggy

fishhawk maybe I should pull out my trench coat :)

josep, i hope he looks adorable when she's

philippa :) she has no idea what kind of star he is

ratieh he's a little too happy

russ I just hope this doesn't go to his head

marg I'll try and be brave

audrey tell me about it, I've been trying to find one I like since mine isn't doing it any more

lisa that's my Duke :)

out on the prairie well lets hope this one is good or it's back to the last one and taking a day off to get him groomed

sandra I'll do my best

roschelle thanks, got my fingers crossed

donna are you yelling at me? Good point though, maybe I should tell her first thing that this will be on my blog

bossy betty they wouldn't

dss I'm the same way. Duke really doesn't care one way or the other. He thinks he's handsome no matter what. It's his dad who thinks he looks like a little orphan dog

daisy maybe he'll get a pair. If not maybe I should see if I can find him some

Miawa said...

Duke looks great no matter what!

Catherine said...

Duke is a VIP dog who should indeed get VIP treatment! :)

allotments4you said...

Don't chicken out simply HAVE to take photos of Duke having a haircut....can't wait to see his new look on saturday!!!

Tammy said...

I see why Duke looks so happy who wouldn't want to be treated like a star. Take pictures we all want to see Duke's spa day.

Ann said...

Miawa, well he's looking pretty scruffy right now

catherine and lets hope he actually gets it

allotments4you maybe I'll just tell the groomer I have been ordered to take

tammy I wish I could get some star treatments mysellf.
