Southern Storms



We are fine. The yard took a beating but it's always like that when we have a severe storm. Tornado's actually did touch down today but not here. We are blessed again!

After it passed the daughter took me shopping! It's her day off and she was not letting a tornado spoil her day!

After the weather and the shopping, the dog got part of a haircut. It is too much work to do the whole thing in one day. His muzzle is blond and around his eyes too.
 He has white streaks in his ears. He is so solid. I shaved him down to the skin and look how stocky he is.
 I decided to just shave him down again because that is the easiest. I've never cut the top knot off before. It was so matted.
 He looks different but nice. What breed does he look like with his hair like this?
 Sometimes that nose looks so long but it's the angle of my picture. It was the only time I got him to look at me.
Time to get back to work on what's important to a dog; CHEWING.

After all we each have our priorities. The dog chews, the daughter shops, and I blog.
What did you do today?

I went to work and had a productive day of teaching. Storms here today, but nothing bad. CRAZY winds this evening. Low key supper at home and looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow morning. Nice to hear your playlist. I adore them on blogs. I enjoy music of all varieties.

I cleaned the house and brushed the dogs. Shedding hair is everywhere.
Glad the tornadoes didn't come down on you.
Your pup looks great....

So glad you are okay and the storms are passing....Oh your poodle looks cute...I do the same with Lucy to much work and she actually likes it being shaved down. And your right it takes me about 4 hours I really need to make a grooming table this last time I had not realized how hunched over I was and I could barely stand up straight when I was done my back was killing me :( But boy you are right he is a big boy stocky even shaved you should see Lucy is super thin and dainty she is maybe 45 pounds I actually think she is on the small size for a standard poodle and she is a real picky eater as well. ~I hope the storms are all gone and you are enjoying some sun now have a wonderful weekend Love Heather

'Tipple' is another name for an alcoholic drink and 'Tiddly' means you are a fair bit happy cos you are a wee bit drunk!

...so go drink 3 glasses of wine (tipple) and you will be a bit drunk (tiddly) ! lol

Haha! That dog is so cute! I love the new haircut. He is solid. When I get Molly shaved she looks so skinny!

So glad to hear you are all fine and didn't get hit by any tornados. Whew!

We had a lot of destruction around us but thank God, none here. In N.C. and even just a few miles from us, there were houses down. Further up, a brick church was torn down; I think 44 people died in N.C. and VA. We were blessed. I ran a fever most of the weekend, and had some terrible wheezing for some reason, but I'm pretty good today. Hope you're not hurting today.

I miss Mamas in so many ways.

Roman looks lovely... I bought a dog shaver the other day and love it! Now I will never have to pay $80 per dog to the dog groomer ever again. Yaaaaaa. And it's paid for itself already!
