I've been glued!!

Mom got everyone up early yesterday (Friday). We all (except for dad) piled into a very dirty Airedale Taxi (that's why you can't actually see the taxi- mom wouldn't let me take a picture of it because she needs to wash it). We were going for a LONG ride. (I am not into long rides).
She stopped at the gas station and filled up. The two hooman pups are in the back seat. I got the passenger seat all to myself. This is what I looked like when I left that morning...... Take a good close look, cuz I'll never be the same again!We drove for about two hours. Mom knew exactly where we were going. We got to the Twin Cities and headed South. The hooman, pup, Jordan had to pee so we stopped. The hoomans ate at Subway while I stayed in the truck in my cell (yes, she took the crate with....she's so EVIL sometimes)! Did I get anything to eat?? NO!!

When they were done eating, they took me out of my cell and let me run around a bit to stretch my legs. Little did I know what was coming next....
This is Diane, she is a really nice lady. She was stripping me of my puppy fur. Mom kept telling me what a good girl I was and I hardly moved at all. She (Diane) used this razor thingy and it didn't hurt me at all until she got to my arm pits. Diane raises Airedales, and is a groomer too.
Next, she looked at my ears and said that they were pretty good looking all by themselves, but my left ear was a little weaker in the cartilage department so she used this stuff on them- this glue and glued them right to my head. My hoomans laughed at me and called me DOOFUS face. I thought only Tanner was a DOOFUS face, but as you can see, I am a DOOFUS face. When Diane was all done, she introduced us to her Airedales, and to a litter of puppies she had that were about four weeks younger than me. When Diane was all done, we said good-bye and headed home. I slept all the way home. I went in the back seat by Kendra. There was NO WAY I was going to sit in the seat next to the Evil momma! I was exhausted from all that grooming!
This is what I look like now, ears glued and all. I don't really bother them for the most part. Sometimes I like to scratch them, but mom tells me "no". Here I am having my breakfast. Can't a girl get any peace?
Here is the DOOFUS face. I wouldn't let momma get any closer. A girls gotta do what a girls gotta do. I put my paw down and told her that enough is enough. She assures me that my ears won't stay like this forever, but I don't know? She tells me how pretty I am and squeezes me tight. I guess I am pretty, right? AND if this will help me get some boyfriends, like Sunshade then it will be worth it!

Hmmm. I guess I just thought airdale ears would perk up on their own when you were old enough. Actually, I hadn't noticed your ears that much. After a time, do they just stay that way? I don't know that much about airdale breed characteristics to know if down or up is good or bad. You do look pretty tho, even with your ears down.

I never had my ears glued. Can you still hear when mom calls you to come get a cookie? If so, then I guess being glued is not so bad.

Love ya lots,
Maggie

Sunshade said...

Oh Lillie..... sigh... I see you too are putting up with what I put up when I was "8" weeks old.. You know that look in your second last picture, I gave my breeder that same exact look when she glued my ears and stopped giving her kisses. My brother Winston has his ears glued that day too but he's a very happy go lucky guy so he still gave our breeder kisses.

Don't worry, it will only be like that for about 4 weeks, and yes, the whole point of ear gluing is to get tons of boyfriends!! Your mom is actually planning ahead for you you know?

ps. I won two awards on Boo's blog, Lady of the year, and Girlfriend of the year.. HAHAHAHAHAHA

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade

Happy New Year Lillie! Too bad about the ear glueing thingy. They also do that to wire fox terriers too if it looks like the ears won't stay down. We never had to have it though luckily. Your hair stripping makes you look so cute! and the armpits always hurt!!! Mama never knew there was a breeder so close to Iowa. Don't let her see any of the puppies! We have to keep Mama away from puppies cause she can't resist them, hehehe!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
