Doggie Photoshoot and Grooming

This was a really eventful weekend! First there was the charity doggie photoshoot, and we managed to raise almost $2K for Charmaine. My M hopes that the figure can past $2k after the nice doggie owners have seen the nice pictures and decide to buy more.

The Shoot was held at Aunty Cynthia's grooming shop, which is called the Doggy Salon. Aunty Cynthia has kindly agreed to let us use her shop for free for the shoot, and she donated a handsome (but I'm still handsome-er!) amount to our cause too!

Anyway, my M decided to bring me in for grooming at the same time since she won't have time to bath me, not that I would have minded. At the same time, she reminded me not to 'sia suay' (ie: to embarass her) during the grooming coz I'm such a scardey cat and she even reminded the groomers that I'm a scardey cat. I tried to tell her I'm a dog but I don't think she cares.

Here's me getting ready to be groomed!


From this vantage point, I can check out the doggie 'studio' below.


Can you see me??


Another look at the 'work in progress'. We had a lot of human dogs that day too, coz everyone was barking mad! They wruffed and howled and barked their way to get the dog's attention.



If you thought taking pictures of dogs were hard... try taking pictures of dogs AND kids!


Ok, back to my grooming.... first they combed out my undercoat.


That's my butt....


Check out all the fur they combed out! I'm glad I still got loads to spare!


Ohh.. that tickles!


Remember my M told me not to do anything to embarass her? Well, I did 2 things.

Firstly I tried to hang myself.

From the grooming table.

Not that I wanted too.

I think I slipped and fell coz my M saw me going down butt first instead of head first.

And then I pooped as well.

The groomers thought the smelt something funny, and it was me. My M thought maybe I'm so frightened I pooped my pants coz I'm reliably toilet trained... unless I have a tummyache, which I don't yesterday.



After that I was washed...


And placed in the oven at 220 degrees for 30 minutes.... to be served hot....

Hotdogs!


All right, that was a joke! I wasn't baked.... but my M did call it the Oven.

And that's nice smelling me after the grooming, although you can't really smell me now.


But to make sure I don't distract the other doggies in the shoot, I had to be imprisoned.

Let me out!



It was a exciting and tiring day for me and I was glad to meet some of my fans! Thank you for continuing to read the blog even after my big brother Herbie left! Also thanks to all the nice doggie owners who supported this event!
