All in da familee

Yesterday was a big day....Lola was goin to the groomers to ave her furs removed cos she was in a disgraceful state...

...ewok...

...wookie and border terrier make friends...

.....the groomin was to take place in Witley wot be a village near us.....and we haz advised them to be takin precorshuns cos Lola is known for avin a low tolerunce for groomin and mebbe puttin on the bitey.....

...area sealed off, all children remain indoors...

......the groomer who did her last time ave not been seen since and files remain open....

.....probbly just too much mowin....

....the whole fing was too much for mum and she did go off to see our pals who do be lookin after my sisfur Islay (@issiebisey)....


...Islay so fast she be blurry...even sittin stilll...


....and Rocky...who be my dad....

...ansome is in the genes....



....while she was waitin for the summons to collect Lola....or just until she hear sound of sirens....wotever be furst...


....checkin every pile of fur for cloos....

....owever, she need not ave worried cos Lola is said to be nice as pie for the lady....mebbe because there was two big poodles puttin the growly to Lola.....


...holy mackerel! Is it Fu Man Chu?...


....this is what a border terrier should look like....ansome, sleeks, even beards

....not like this....is no longer Victorian age you kno......
....like this....modern, a little sumfing coverin the legs....

....see the contrast? Beardy Pin Legs (foreground) ......Ansome dood (background)...

 ....and then we is also notissin that Lola may ave "gained a few pounds"....*snigger*....and the roly poly middles was not fur after all....and she is on immediate diets....no more fresh foods for her....only kibbles.....

...the shame of the obese terrier.....
.....model dog.....

....circus mutt.....
