You'll notice that Abby is quite interested in getting a nibble of the small child! BTW, Dad was totally not expecting this, so that's why he's not dressed in his party clothes.
Unfortunately, the cake was chocolate, so Abby and I had to content ourselves with
Abby and I celebrated Dad's birthday by getting some serious bitey-face action going.
As the Wild Dingos pointed out, 6 lbs is a big difference; over 10% of my body weight. So I'm going to have to work on my cunning and treachery to smackdown Lard Butt.
I'm also hoping that if I show her my teeth she'll be intimidated. Don't worry. I'm still working on other plans.
Some of you may have noticed that Abby and I are getting a little woolly. Truthfully when our own Granny and Clive both mention that we are woolly, Mom starts to look more critically at us.
Us? Woolly? Naw. She must be thinking of some other goldendoodles.
Anyhoo, it's also been really warm (for us, for this time of year) - in the 50s during the day - and Abby and I have been getting a little hot, particularly at night. To the extent that Mom and Dad have had to turn the air conditioning on at night so we don't get all hot and restless. So.... Mom thought that maybe we needed haircuts.
Haircuts? Seriously? However, we didn't have much of a choice; Mom made an appointment, loaded us into the car, and the next thing we knew, we were being shampooed and shorn.
And now we're nekkid!
Mom will get some more pictures of us tomorrow, when we've recovered from our afternoon at the spa. It's a tough job being beautiful, but someone's got to do it!
