My New Visage!


It's me ~~~ it's really me!


Unbeknownst to me ~~~ this morning
I was whisked off to the salon/poodle parlour!


My coiffeuse, Sandra and I spent a few hours on my locks.
(No doubt with a few 'licks' thrown liberally)


I always look like a new Doodle
when I get my Spring Cut.


My eye brows ~~~ my luscious eye brows
accent my eyes as always!


I now feel more Poodle than Doodle
and as Daddy Jim said

"you look more like a female Doodle, Sophie
a lot more daintier."

(apparently some peeps think I'm a male
because I play hard and bound around
without a care in the world)

Doesn't bother me in the least ~~~
as long as I get that treat hiding in their pocket!!!

    1. I know what you are saying Terry ~~~ I don't know myself either. I jumped out of the car when I got home and ran around and around ~~~ what happened to me ~~~ where is Sophie Doodle?
      It'll take a few weeks I guess to accept my new look!

      Sophie Doodle more Poodle than Lab here!

  4. OMD! You don't look like a Sophiedoodle anymore.....and it's not spring for you guys yet!!! Please accept our sincerest condolences. At least by the time Spring decides to show up, you'll be your old self again, or near enough.

  5. You look gorgeous, Sophie! But I think you always look gorgeous. In human terms, you are a tomboy. That explains all that rough stuff. You play hard and still look fun-tastic!

    1. I like that "tomboy" handle ~~~ that suits me to a "T"

      I waiting patiently now for the guys to get up and take me to the park so I can hop on all the dogs and girls with treats. That's just me!

      Now I know why I'm 'healed' as we pass the girls ~~~ every time ~~~ they all have treats in my park!

      Hugs Martha and spread it around ~~~ s'il vous plait!

    1. Oh HI my Oregon friends!

      You and Tweedles (just below) are both from that MOST beautiful state. Sometimes we have this yearning for some Oregon and you help out greatly with that feeling.

      So have a great Oregon Day and spread the hugs, love and peace!

  7. Sophie, what as wonderful day to spend at the spa and get all pretty. And you did- just look at you. Isn't it nice to know you can do this many times in the year because your pretty furs will all grow back. You are so beatiful.

  14. You look beautiful Sophie!! I´m grooming Ayla but I have to do it step by step. She dont like it.
    On the news yesterday they showed a rescue from Nova Scotia. A deer with her youngster where on a lake with ice. One of them couldnt go up so a helicopter shoved with its wind the deer to the land.

    1. What a wonderful story Lindsjo! I haven't seen that story and I live in Nova Scotia. I will look for it online though. That poor deer was probably scared and didn't know what was happening. Stories like that are so heart warming.

      Now for Ayla ~~~ treats might help just an idea!

      Nova Scotia love over the waters to Sweden for you, all!!!!

  25. Hi Sophie! I see Daddy Ron has been playing around with your blog format. I'm loving the orange script! It picks up nicely on the orange tones in your icon, and it makes me think of Mr. Orangie. To me, you look more like the dog in your baby pictures ~ very different but very cute. I bet you gave Sandra lots of licks for doing such a great job on you. Happy romping and sniffing!

    1. Such is my life, Louise ~~~~ at the MERCY of HIS whims! All the time! The orange worked out perfectly for my OCDness, don'cha think!
      Today was rainy, surprise! We took in Point Pleasant Park, surprise! Then the guys needed to eat at Heartwood (vegan resto) and then Starbucks for caffeine fix. I managed their OCDness too!
      Smiles!

      Listen if you have a treat, just a wee bit of 'anything' I'd relieve you of it so it wouldn't weigh down your pockets. I have my techniques that always puts a smile on their faces!
