Oy, Puppy!

We took Jett to the vet because he had a case of Doggie pink eye, even after being treated with antibiotics some crud has lingered in his left eye. It turns out the muscle that controls his inner eyelid isn't well developed so it doesn't stay tight so gunk builds up. We've been cleaning it and trying to fatten him up so that some more fat and muscle might help pull it into place, but he's a rather measured eater and won't overeat no matter what we do. We needed to have the hair around his eye trimmed.

Jett loves to play in the snow and get snowy wet. See snowy wet Jett.

Jett then gets very matted hair, See matted Jett.

Jett today gets a groomers appointment.

If you regularly read this blog, you know what happens next......

Wait for it.....

Wait for it.....

Wait for it.....

See shaved Jett!

I never knew an Airedoodle could be converted into a Greyhound with a set of clippers!

Sigh. Somehow it's better than the last grooming appointment. At least he doesn't look like Gollum now.

Well, on the bright side there certainly isn't any hair around his left eye to irritate it now.

The poor pup actually growled at his reflection in the window thinking it was some strange dog outside.

I think some extra treats are in order.

Oh, the humanity! Where are you taking him to be groomed? A sheep farm? Poor guy. Ain't enough treats in the pet store to make up for that.

Next time ask them to leave a mustache and a mohawk on, at least until winter is gone.

ML: I think a cat was last seen approaching with the electric clippers.

Old NFO: Yep, but he's taking it well.

Jay: I know, it's funny and sad at the same time.

Mrs. S. Good idea, we may have to make a sweater for him in the meantime...

A day later and I still cant stop laughing,, I'd feel bad but that's just too funny.

Maybe someday I'll get to apologize for my rudeness in person.

I suspect your groomer is a client of The Hair Club For Men trying to branch out. Canine Rogaine??
