Terrier trauma........

Small Dog has finally succumbed to a haircut.

Well, perhaps 'succumbed' is putting it too strongly.

She fought tooth and nail throughout the entire procedure, inflicting minor flesh wounds on PP in the process.

Unsurprisingly, her struggling attempts to leap off the table have left her with something of a unkempt cut, so we'll be snipping wayward bits off her for the next few weeks.

However, despite her haircut's shortcomings, she now looks like a new dog and it's knocked years off her.

It's also aged us exponentially.

So here for your delectation and delight is a pictorial history of the procedure.

Seconds before her capture, the position of her ears shows that she's got wind of the impending cut

Captured and placed on the shearing table awaiting execution.....

Partway through. Note her tail tucked firmly between her legs........

Finally released she emits her hell-hound stare.....

....drags her blanky out of her basket and prepares to leave home with all her worldly goods.

Planning her getaway route at the computer, although she did later recant and decided to give us another chance.

She's now recovering from her trauma, although she keeps giving us 'Looks'.

'Nuff said.........

LMAO Sandra. I hope PP didnt need any plasters. Our Henry's just as bad when I get out the special spray for his feet (they dont half smell). Perhaps if she gets gravy bones she will be in a much better mood.

LOL Bless her heart. She does look so much better after her cut, tell her what a pretty girl she now looks and maybe she will forgive you. xxx

She looks fabulous! Just like a new dog! :o)) I hope you weren't all licking your own wounds too much! lol ;oP I guess that hair cut is going to have to last a while so you can all recover! lol

My cat hates having his claws clipped and I have to do it as he's a house cat. He doesn't mind too much most of the time!

Great story and VERY funny! ;o)

She looks so SHINY! Although the Hell Hound Eyes are a tad on the terrifying side.

Mmmmmm... Bitey.

Can't wait to see you all tomorrow!
