All that fur

This is Darby. Isn't she just the sweetest little thing. My daughter put this big bow on her from some tissue paper she got from a gift. She has the prettiest eyes. And sweet, she is the sweetest most gentle dog I have ever seen. I bought her when she was 4 years old from a breeder. She lived in an air conditioned kennel and was very well loved. The one thing I object to but can't change is the fact that the breeder has their vocal cords partially stripped so they don't bark. So she is not a yappy little dog.

I wanted to show you some before and after photos of Darby. You can imagine how if neglected that fur can get seriously matted. Well it did get seriously matted so I took her in to the groomers and asked them to shave her. Of course she doesn't look like the same dog. I think she looks like a cartoon animal, but I don't know which one. Maybe it's that Mr. Winkles or something. You know the one you can't tell if it is a live animal or stuffed. She will probably be much cooler now than with all that fur. Who knew she had such long legs?
That's it for today. I have developed a nasty cough. I think it is allergies. I hope it is allergies, but something has been going around. My son-in-law brought it home, then my husband started with it, now I have it. But I still want to believe it is allergies.
Oh well, hope you enjoyed seeing photos of my little Darby, before and after.
Thanks for tuning in.
