Mom and Dad are hosting the Scottish Terrier Club of Western Virginia at our house tomorrow. No only do we have to act pretty and look pretty, Mom says we have to smell pretty too - hence the visit to the dreaded "house of torture".

It all starts out on our grooming table,
where she uses all of these fancy tools
to get out all of our knots and tangles.
You smooth coated dogs don't know how lucky you are.
She even cleaned our ears!

Occasionally she feels sorry for us
and we get to have a treat from our jar.

(scary music should be playing here)
Because she catches us
one by one
and then we get the dreaded bath!!
Java is laughing because he knows he's safe.
She never bathes him - he goes to the groomer.
What are we - chopped liver?
We have to get groomed at home-
but we guess that beats a dog-o-matic any day.

Guess what's in store for today?
Can you hear her sharpening her clippers?

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java

You poor doggies... I so feel your pain. I'll be thinking of you today and hoping this trauma doesn't leave any permanent scars.

Dexter said...

You certainly seem miserable. I hope you make lots of sad face and crying sounds to let your mom know what a big meanie she is.

Oh guys, but you will look so good and smell so nice for the ladies coming to visit! Do this one thing for Mom, she does so much for you!

Angus said...

Thank you. Your post has reminded me to bathe the two boyz tomorrow morning.

Yike! Maybe you should change the name of your bloggie to the Rocky Horror Scottie Show!!! It must be the season of bathies...if Miss Debbie can work me in today I'm going for a washie and a blow dry and a pedicure too. Maybe a little trim around the ears. I wish you'd show her how to do a proper Scottie tail...I always end of flying a flag instead of sporting a carrot tail.

Rachel said...

MWAAAHAAAHAAAHAHA!!! We humans are sooo diabolical!

So NOW we need to see your after pikhs!


TwoSpecialWires said...

Those eyes! They scared the piddle out of us! Those faces! Is it really that bad??? We thought your place was a nice place to live.

Here's hopin' that things improve by the Scottie Show. We're sure you'll look (and smell) lovely. Maybe you'll wake up and it was just a bad dream.

We hope so.
Fergi (who can relate) and Jake

Inky and Molly said...

Oh yes, being groom-tortured is not much fun, we've been there... You keep giving her the evil eye so she knows she'd doing wrong (that's what we do with our Pinkie, you see, the amount of treats given increases proportionally to the amount of evil eye portrayed).
Enjoy the day with all your Scottie friends. Be sure to post lots of pics.

Love, Inky and Molly

Ms. ~K said...

We're due for a bath too...HELP!!!
Have fun tomorrow!

Kay said...

The Lodger shares your pain guys!!! He hated the groomers and has to be dragged through the door!!! but its ok because he always looks beautiful and so will you!!

animal lover, quilt lover said...

Bambi says please don't talk about BATH! I am due for one too!!! When Mom starts getting ready,I am gone!
If I can get out of this house that is... Don't like BATHs!!!
You have a great time tomorrow!
Thanks for your visits to see me !!
Love, Bambi and Mom

Obie Trevino said...

OMG! This was so funny! I could hear the scary music in the background! LOL! I don't like them either, but Ebony loves to jump in the shower for no reason, so I jump in there with her! Its not so bad. Besides, you come out smelling really good! Good luck tomorrow! Take plenty of pictures so we can see!

Hi New Friends
You guys are so cute. It sounds like mom is going to be awfully busy hosting the event. Just keep following her so you get lots of attention
Benny & Lily

Allie said...

I feel your pain! My scottie sense tells me that my time is coming I hate having a bath and people messing with my big ears. Hope you survived the preparations.

Allie's boy, Pippen :D

BRUTUS said...

Us "wash-and-wear" type dogs can never appreciate what you guys must go through. All I can hear is the shower-scene soundtrack from Psycho....

Hope the club's meeting went well and was worth all the torture - at least you probably had lots of other dogs to commiserate with,,,,

Woodrow, Luna, MJ Campanella said...

sorry you guys got groomed - we are short flat clated dogs so we as mommy say are more wash and wear - so we really dont require any grooming

Woodrow - Sweetie - MJ

Sue said...

So you have a torture chamber, too. Now we don't feel so bad. Why do humans think we have to smell pretty for other dogs. The other dogs would understand if we smelled natural.

Oskar said...

I must say that table looks like it has all sorts of torture devices!!!

I'm Oskar, a miniature schnauzer from Michigan. Stop by my blog & say hi sometime!

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Hehe. Chopped liver you are!! We can smell you all the way in farrr north Idaho.BOL!!
