Since puppy dawg is scheduled to go under the knife, her thick, curly coat was beyond our expertise, and summer is coming--though, heat doesn't seem to be part of the mix--at least so far, daughter decided a grooming appointment was in order. 

Cinnamon was dropped off Saturday morning at eight and picked up at three in the afternoon. She was reportedly well behaved but quite fidgety. The change is striking. Even her bark is different.

She is confused by the strange dog in the mirror.

Cinnamon's name was inspired by her coat color. But, as she was becoming more blonde than brown (even before the haircut) it is clear, now that her eyes are clearly visible, that she's named for the cinnamon-y color of her soft, "drink me in" eyes.

    There is nothing, nothing at all, like a dog's eyes.

    Maybe the expression is a tiny bit close to ours when we first fall in love. But ... no, their eyes are just full of dog: trust and love and sweet.

    Smart to groom her.

  2. Puppy pictures! Yay!

  3. Our dog detests going to the groomer. And our groomer always puts a jaunty little kerchief around his neck that he wriggles out of within ten minutes of getting in the house. It's as if he is yelling at us, "I am a dog! Not a Barbie doll!"

  4. my childhood dog always seemed embarrassed when she would come home from a summer cut. Come to think about it until i grew up i would be embarrassed if anyone touched my hair and i didnt like it. now i walk about embarrassed UNTIL somebody DOES something, ANYTHING with my hair...


  5. poetlandia: how right you are about a dog's eyes. :-)

    e: Yipppeeee!!!

    Maria: the groomer asked if we wanted a bow atop her head (when it was thought she'd have not quite so much shaved) and color me surprised when my daughter declined.She (the daughter) confided later, "she has plenty of bows at home."

  6. Nina: None of our childhood dogs were around long enough to get groomed. Daughter used to cut the D-Dog's.

    When I got tired of my hair--before I was bold enough to cut it off (and keep it off) I used to braid it, french roll, cornroll--anything to keep from having to deal with it on a daily basis.

  7. Who knew that there was such a sleek, linear model under all those curls!

  8. @ Madame: truly, who knew? She's the aerodynamic pup now.
