What Did They Do to My Dogs?!?

Posted by Kathy Torrence on Jul 12, 2008 in Our Goldendoodle Puppies

I took the two dogs to PetSmart to be groomed yesterday – after all their camping trips and illnesses, they were pretty scruffy.

When I got there, they said that because the had some mats and their hair was so knotted, they both needed to be completely shaved down.  I was so sad!

We really try to keep up with their curly goldendoodle fur.  We brush them daily – even more so after they get wet.  I guess we need to be a bit more diligent and brush them a few times a day – or take them in for grooming more than every two months…I don’t know.

Anyway, I knew that the dogs were going to look different with no hair, but I wasn’t prepared for how little dog was under all of Geddy’s fur…here’s Geddy last week on our camping trip…


And here he is this morning:



I’m sure he feels better without all those knots and this is great for the hot summer weather, but I had no idea how SKINNY he was!  He looks like some sort of hound dog – or neglected puppy (and believe me, he is NOT neglected!).

Daisy was also shaved, but she’s been shaved before, so it’s not as big of a shock.

Here she is on our trip last week:


And this morning:


This is going to take some getting used to…


Emily’s SpongeBob Card

Posted by Kathy Torrence on Jul 12, 2008 in Cards, Crafts

My six-year-old daughter Emily made the BEST SpongeBob Squarepants birthday card for Matt….I just had to share!

Emily's SpongeBob

I helped her cut the cardstock and punch the holes…but other than that, Emily made one this all by herself.

Looks like we have another paper crafter in our family!
