I Got a Haircut!

Every once in a while I get a haircut. Yesterday morning I got a haircut for the summer! Do you know what I don't like about haircuts? I get shaved naked! Well, not quite, but almost. And now I look really funny, and it's embarrassing. I easily get dreadlocks, so that's why I get my haircut so short because my dreadlocks go down to the skin almost. But, at least this haircut will be nice for the summer!

Okay, ready for pictures? You're probably not going to recognize me...

I'm glad my fur grows fast, because that means I won't be naked for very long!

Anyway, enough of the embarrassing stuff... Lets talk about before I got my haircut! Last week we went to the park. Lizzy threw my tennis ball for me, and I chased it over and over again. I love playing fetch! After a while I couldn't play anymore because the tennis ball broke and went all flat and weird... So, then Lizzy threw me into a tree with lots of low branches, and she took pictures of me.

Look how long my tongue is!

A few days ago Lizzy took me for a walk up to the pond again to meet some people there. Now, can you believe this? One of the guys there thought I was 6 or 8 years old! Now just what was he thinking?! I'm a young dog! I'm only 5! Well, almost 6.... But I'm still not that old! I'm still a happy hyper puppy. Most people think I'm 1 or 2, and are shocked to hear I'm almost 6. But how did that guy know that I was 6?! Well, I just found out. Just before we got to the park, Lizzy and Mom were painting a room. I, of course, wanted to help. So I started sticking my nose into paint buckets and rubbing against paint brushes. I got a white tail, grey paws, yellow on one side of my mouth, and white on the other. Now, the reason that guy thought I was so old is because it looked like the fur around my mouth had turned white! And that's what old dogs look like! But, of course, my mouth isn't really white yet. It was just paint. But, at least I know why that guy thought I was old...

Oh, I just realized I'm not wearing my red bandana right now! I was wearing it the other day, but they took it off when I got my haircut. I wonder where it is? I have to go find it now!

Sparky, your summer cut looks super!! Not to worry, you look great! I think I actually prefer the summer 'do as dreadlocks aren't fun. And I don't appreciate Mom combing them out all the time!

Ok, so let me get this straight... You played with the tennis ball so much that it deflated?? Wow, that must have been some super duper ball chasing!!!

What 'cha doing for the long weekend next week?

Hi, Sparky.

Sparky - thanks for the bday wishes. You look pretty cool.

Wonder if you would have short hair like me if one of your grandparents or great grandparents was a bull terrier.

Charlie said...

Sparky, my man, you're looking very dapper in that short cut! I'll bet it's a lot more comfortable in the summer!!

Amber-Mae said...

Oh Sparky... well well well. Well, you certainly look much neater but errr, I prefer your old hairstyle. I think you look more macho with all that frizzy hair. Now you look kinda... bald! But hey, no hard feelings! You still look as handsome as always despite how short your hair is, hehe!

Love licks,

Hi Sparky,
I think your new hair style looks great. We kind of have the same hair style. Don't you think so?


Jazz and Dixie said...

Hi Sparky,
We like your summer cut. Your ur underneath looks a little lighter. We never have to get a hair cut and we are thnakful for that although mum sometimes thinks it would be better if we needed our hair cut rather than shedding it all over the floor, sofa etc.

Hi Sparky, Tasha here. I think you still look very handsome even with your fur short! Those are cool pictures of you in the tree. Thanks for the well wishes about my leg, but that happened almost 2 years ago now, and I am running and playing like it never happened! Belly Rubs, Tasha
