Wordless/Wordful Wednesday - Elvis Gets a Shave

Elvis (a Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier) started to look like a mangy mutt and seriously needed a hair cut, especially since Mother Nature was giving us some abnormally hot days...so I had him shaved all over to keep cool. (Of course Mother Nature decided it was the perfect time to send us a cold front with frost advisories, but at least he's ready in case she switches it up again):This is typically what a Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier hair cut would look like (you know, if you were into doing the show dog mode and all):
But why cover up that cute goofy face?
Our Blue Merle Sheltie puppy, Travis, is almost full grown:
One of these days I'll get creative like Nikki Crumpet and Yaya and put thought bubbles on the doggie pics for extra entertainment factor... ;)

Awe, what a cute puppy! Isn't it amazing how a hair cut can make such a difference? Doesn't even look like the same puppy anymore.

Cute puppy either way!

I love a freshly shaved dog, they're ugly cute. They barely resemble their furrier former selves.

BK said...

He looked totally different now. But I like the clean look. :)

Kristen Andrews said...

Banteringblonde said...

awww... i love the fresh cut look - i always feel like they are super clean when they are freshly groomed!

cat said...

Oh your puppies are adorable! Thanks for popping in at my place.

Casey said...

Wow, Travis did get big! Elvis is adorable and I think it's funny that the second you decided to shave him, it got cold again. I've always wanted to shave my lab/shepherd mix but he would kill me.

Yaya said...

Hahaha! Yup, the bubbles make things so much fun! Super easy-just load it into photobucket and get to editing girl!

Your furbabies are so cute!
