Spa Day


There I was catching some rays, minding my own business ...


when this pulled up in front of my house ...


Could this be Alien's super sonic new spaceship designed to impress intergalactic ladies everywhere, I wondered? 


 Nope ...


But don't worry, I survived ...
 

though most of my fur did not 


Being pampered is exhausting ...


Do not disturb, beauty sleep in progress.

Note from Pip's assistant: This is the first time we have used a mobile grooming service and we highly recommend it - much less stressful for dogs and their peeps!

Rubie said...

There was a lot of bright pink in that salon van Pip. And you look gorgeous now!!! The outcome is great, it's the process that I don't like. My grooming happens in my laundry room, with uncie on the clippers and mum holding me so I don't split!!

Tail Wuggles, Rubie

Marg said...

Oh Mr. Pip. you sure look terrific. Wow that is quite a great hair cut and what a great idea to do a mobil grooming service. That must have been so easy for Pip. You are just the cutest most handsome Pip that we know. Take care.

The Furries of Whisppy said...

You look ADORABLE! How awesome to have a mobile grooming salon at your doorstep.

Bouncing Bertie said...

Pip, I must say you do look most spiffy after your mobile grooming session. When I first saw the words 'mobile grooming' I thought, great, so you can be groomed while you are running around, no more of the boring 'stay still Bertie' business. That sounds like my sort of grooming. But then Gail went and spoiled my little fantasy and pointed out that it is the van that is mobile and not the dog being groomed.
Life is full of disappointments (sighs, philosophically).
Toodle pip!
Bertie.

brandi said...

Unfair to other woofies! You look awesome ungroomed AND groomed!

houndstooth said...

Pip, the results look fantastic! You look even sleeker and more like a Greyhound now that you've gotten that trim. I definitely think your word would be "eat" if you were in on the photo shoot -- probably with a red and white checked napkin tied around your neck!

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

You're all spiffed up for the Valentine's Day Dance! Yes, those mobile spas are lifesavers for doggies with health problems that make going to a regular spa too stressful. Mama used one for her last female Dane. We're glad you found a good one.

Jo's World said...

Hey Pipinski!

I love the haircut you get! All cute and short and so, so YOU!

I'd rather go to one of these traveling groomers than to be in a shop with a whole bunch of other dogs I didn't know! We are a small town so we may not have one yet.

Kisses,
Stella
