Before and After


No, I'm not any Einstein!
However when I can't see 
because of my lovely long locks
blocking my view 
then it's time to turn on the light bulb.


I know I've shrunk, faux-slimmed down, been 'sheep shorn'.
I'm not a shaggy doodle schnoodle anymore...
but you must be patient 
and
my soft, silky, luxurious locks will come back to visit.

In the mean time
I'll devour a bully stick and have a Guinness!
(Three Dog Bakery and the Irish Pub across the street from each other ~~~ checkmate) 
Thank you very much!


Thought you might like a peaceful walk on the beach
one early morning last week.
This might help you get over your
surprise and concern for me and my diminished locks.

~~~

Enjoy my friends!

    1. Hi Majsan!

      Yes, today is grey but you know spring is coming! We are taking it easy because we had a very busy week. Chicken stew is on the stove and it smells so good!

      Have a great Sunday, Majsan!

  2. Looks like a grand beach and all to yourself too, lucky you. Be sure not to dig too deep, the cat may have left a not so tasty treat hahaha

    And even though you look more thin, it isn't a sin, now you can have more treats to eat, as you can say you need to put on some meat.

    1. I have 3 beaches close by, for fun and mischief!
      Holes I dig,
      sand I shake,
      with the hopes
      that putting on the brake
      will cover my intended take
      of Mr. Orangie in my wake!

      Cheers my Pat Hatt friend!

  4. Well, Sophie, I hope you will forgive me for combining responses from a few recent posts into one comment. First, i have to say you don't look completely thrilled about your new look. Perhaps you feel like I used to as a kid when my mom took me for a haircut. i just couldn't see the point :) But, please be assured, you are still absolutely gorgeous. Those eyebrows. Wow! And those sweet eyes! Again, wow. Now, on to the ball-in-the-water adventure. You know what made me laugh? It was jim. At least, I think it was Jim. The nerve of him taking pictures while you stressed out over your good friend, Mr. Orange, almost slipping away while he watched calmly through his lens. Good for you for the rescue operation! I believe that was pre-grooming and a good thing too. Man, that water looked cold! Anyhow, it is always wonderful to catch up with your never, ever boring life. As for the monster. There's another moment that some of us humans under appreciate, but not your Ron. Now, there's someone who GETS the important (and sometimes scary) things in life! Oh, and could you thank Ron for keeping such a wonderful photo-journal so we don't miss any of those spectacular moments? Thanks, Sophie!

      My life is actually quite sheltered with a few spicy tidbits thrown in. I do have a handful of favourite places to run, hide and chase Mr. Orangie, so when I visit these spots I automatically go into OCD mode for that area.

      With the ice along the edge of the canal, the other day, I just didn't know how to handle the slope and sounds. I listened very carefully to Jim and I managed everything very well and received mucho congratulations for achieving my goal ~~~ Mr. O!

      My haircut is usually a positive experience after I return and flake out, sleep and rejuvenate. Ron woke me, thus the not so amiable look. He's known to do this, so I just give him the eye! Usually works.

      Monsters seem to be everywhere, nowadays and it's my responsibility to keep them at bay! Everyone has to have a "reason for living" right?! Mine is to protect, flick my eyebrows and LICK! This is my Doodle raison d'etre.

      Cheers to the 3 of you!

  10. Oh we know what you mean! But we do see the benefits of having our furs stolen. Mom says we can swim now and we are easier to clean up after our mud baths (we have several a day).

  11. Pugsley thinks it's too early to take your coat off. He's giving it another week before he initiates operation "get hair all over everything". By June, we'll be knee deep.

    1. I love my beach, Martha!

      Whenever we go I get so excited and start chasing Mr. Orangie. The next time I go I will run like the wind with my tresses all gone.

    1. We have a very eclectic shopping plaza designed similarly to the American outdoor plaza style. Imagine an Irish pub and a Doggy Bakery across the street from one another. Very helpful for some of us who like both once in awhile!
