new haircutHey look at me - I just got a new haircut for the hot weather. I'm looking rather smart, if I do say so myself.

It wasn't always this way. When I was young pup, I went off to a grooming salon for my first clip.

When Neil picked me up, he was so horrified that he yelled at the woman "What have you done to my dog?!"
very bad haircut
It was pretty bad - made me look like a pinhead.

I never went back. Kay went out and bought some clippers and with regular practice is doing a pretty good job.
me, looking very smart
Either way, a new haircut sure makes my ears look big!

I'm on a diet these days - once my winter curls got cut off, there was no denying that I had been eating a bit too well over the last few months. It's all the treats I get when training, and we've been doing a lot of training!

Hopefully over the next month or so, you will see me turn into a slimmer, svelte version of myself. Probably for the best, it will be easier to clear those jumps without the extra weight.


  1. Kay does an awesome clipping job, Ruby - you look GREAT! Bummer about the diet!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  7. Hi ya Ruby
    We are Ellie and Baz the Airedales in Melbourne.
    Mum says Kay is doing a great job with your clipping. Our mum does our clipping too.
    She also has Bazzy on a diet too, he is way too fat and he is going back to Obedience School soon. I finished Advanced level obedience many years ago and am a gentle old girl now. But Bazzy is only 1 year old and needs more practice.
    We like your bloggie.

    Miss Ellie and Bazzy
