A conversation with Arthur regarding his haircut

The day had finally arrived. Arthur was going to the groomers. “Let’s go, Arthur,” I said, “we’re going for a ride.”

I’m not buying that ride stuff,” Arthur said. “The last time we went for a ride they shaved my leg, stuck a needle in it, made me throw up multiple times, and then kept me in a cage for three hours.

“Come on, Arthur. You need a haircut.”

I don’t know why you say that.

Four hours later Arthur returns home with his new haircut.

Dang. They put a scarf on me again. And they didn’t fix the place on my leg where they shaved me. I look like a half-baked poodle.

“You’re so clean, and nice and soft, Arthur.”

I wonder if I can lick this perfume off.

“Arthur, look at me so I can take your picture.”

Really? Haven’t you done enough for one day?

Maybe I can rub this off,

or roll it off.

If I can just push a little harder.

08-after-2013-03-26

Yes. I think this is working.

09-after-2013-03-26

Hey, did somebody say ‘squirrel’?

“Arthur, watch me.”

10-after-2013-03-26

Nope. I’m not. I’m not going to look at you.

11-after-2013-03-26

I’m going to hang my head in shame until my hair grows back.

12-after-2013-03-26

This is as good as it gets.”

“Good boy.”

  1. Adorable! And you know Arthur well enough, I can tell, to know exactly what he’s thinking. When I take my golden to the groomer, we go through a very similar routine. Oh, the looks of consternation on his face, that I would make him go through such indignity! Only his human family appreciates the new look….

    1. He does have a lot of facial expressions. It’s just a good thing he is small and I can pick him up when I need to, because obedient he is not. I’m thinking about trying with charm school once again.
