@snowywestie is one of my best friends on Twitter, but I had never met him in dog until this Saturday when both our moms got the brilliant idea of getting us groomed together.
Now, who in their right mind would arrange a Westie meetup at the groomer's while we poor doggies are going through our worst nightmare, a bath and a haircut! Only The Spy and Lindaraxa, our respective moms, would think of such a horrific idea! Frankly I'm thinking of filing a serious complaint with Mom Control...for inhumane treatment to a beloved pet!
I usually get groomed by my mom or my human sister and can usually con them into letting me take a nap while the ordeal is going on, but this time I had no such luck. The lady who owns the Westie salon is an experienced groomer who has been breeding and showing Westies for a long time. I suppose she's nice for a human but, unfortunately, she knows all our tricks. She also told mom I was "a little heavy around the hips" which means mom is not falling for my cute face anymore and feeding me under the table. She used to be such a sucker for my antics but now she is determined to ignore me. I heard the word diet being thrown around. What is diet?
At least she didn't trade me in for a new model, something I was afraid she would do once she saw all the cute Westie pups that hang out at the groomer's house. She kept looking at this little male Westie and making cute faces at him but in the end she left only with me. Phew! That would have been the crowning glory, a bath and a new Westie brother to boot...as if I didn't have enough to worry about!
Here are some pictures of poor Snowy and me during our Day of Rage. I have promised to invite him to the lake soon to forget and make up for the unpleasant experience. I hope he is still talking to me. I'm not talking to Mom.
|You Snowy?...you Lucy?|
|I really need to see your id, Lucy...|
|Just double checking|
|This should be fun....|
|Okay, mom, time to go!|
|Don't leave, the best is yet to come!|
|Snowy won the coin toss, phew! Maybe I can sneak out without anyone noticing...|
|Want to see my best get out of jail trick?|
|Boring...we've seen better con artists!|
|Mom, I'm feeling faint...really|
|Oh jeeeze, not the paws!|
|You're pulling my hair!|
|Hang in there Luce, it'll be over before you know it!|
|Meanwhile, Norwich terrier gets a new family!|
|Meet the parents!|
|My worst nightmare...a new brother!|
|...while I'm going through hell!|
|I need two aspirin and a nap!|
Since last Saturday I have been sleeping and thinking of nothing but revenge. I learned a valuable lesson which almost cost me my life...moms are definitely not to be trusted!
