Wordless Wednesday, Part Deux, sort of

It's only 'sort of' because it's not wordless. See, today, TaiChi and Abby had hair appointments (me? I'm still pretty short from my experience at the grooming salon that had never seen a poodle or poodle mix before), and Mom was planning on doing a wordless "before and after" photo session. But, well, there were a few spanners thrown in the works. First, it has been snowing All Day, and so getting before and after pictures has been a bit of a challenge. And then Abby's hair appointment isn't 100% finished. Her little puppy brain was about ready to explode before they got to her face, so while she is groomed from the neck down, her face is still long and hairy. (I know that some people like that look, but Mom and Dad wanted Abby to have a clean face, so they could see what they were getting under that fluffy puppy suit of hers.) Abby has got to go back tomorrow to be "finished". And. Well, TaiChi is not sure that she's ready for photos yet, as she's buried under blankets. She's been going bald for a while, and where she wasn't bald she was fairly matted. So.... Her hair cut pretty much consisted of shaving her bald (Mom hopes that she'll grow some hair back), and since it has been snowing all day, it's pretty cold, and even with a sweater on, TaiChi gets cold pretty easily (because she's basically skin and bones). Hence the being buried under blankets since she got home.

Soo.... You'll have to wait for some photos of their new looks.

However, as I mentioned earlier, it has been dumping snow All Day. Which means that there is an open invitation for all of you snow lovers - come visit and get your snow fix; it is supposed to snow through Friday morning. And for those of you who don't like snow? Be happy you don't live here! ;-)

Actually in that photo you can kind of see Abby's new 'do.

Deep-snow zoomies.

Of course, for Abby, the snow is much deeper...

Happy winter, spring!

Couldn't quite see the new half-do in the photos today. How about tomorrow we get the half-do and finished-do photos? Huh? Or are they too embarrassing for Abby?

SNOW!!!! My favorite thing. Since we don't have snow - I will be happy with the 70* day were are expecting in NYC this saturday! Can you say "frolic". Daffodils were blooiming a few days ago - so we'll be on the lookout for TULIPS this week!

If I can't have snow...I'll settle for flowers!

Kari in WeHo said...

I can understand why TaiChi is under the blankets!

Clive said...

Wow, that's some snow you're having!

Can't wait to see the finished 'Abby'!

The mother-in-law here threatened to cut my face while I was staying with her for a few days - while the gang were in Disney! Thankfully she decided against it, the NSLM would have gone crazy but the rest of the gang who have to comb out my face might have been a bit happier about it!

take care
Clive and the NSLM
