I Have Been Preoccupied.....

With This!

I know it is so soon after Bruno....but we went to the shelter on a whim. (Word of advice....NEVER go to the shelter after you lose your dog....cuz you know you will bring one home!) We almost made it out of the shelter empty handed....until I spied this little guy. His cage said 8 mos. old. He was a stray. He is a miniature poodle/ Bichon mix. He had such a sweet disposition that Kyle asked if we could meet him in the "Meet and Greet" room. (Deadly!) Next thing we knew....we adopted him! This was how he came home....matted, mangy, dirty, and unkempt. We had to wait two weeks to get him groomed because he was neutered.


Here he is with his new "DO!" The groomer had to cut him pretty short because he was in pretty bad shape! It's summer, it will do! At least he is clean and smells nice! And yes he still has a sweet disposition....a total lap dog!
You probably want to know what his name is? Just keep in mind that Kyle named him.....
His name is Skippers. Not Skip or Skippy.....not even Skipper......Skippers with an s at the end. Don't ask..........

Have a great weekend!

I love your dog. We did the same thing within a month of the loss of our 16 year old dog. We went to the shelter, "just to check it out and see how it works in this county". Ha! Your dog is especially cute groomed. You can see his sweet face better.

I am also a card making scrapbooker, and I need to get caught up on my scrapbooking. Yeah, I always say that.

Ooooh - I love Skippers! I have a bichon (budye)who looks a lot like your before photo! I just keep brushing him to remove the mats in his hair, I don't know how they get so many -- High maintenance dogs! But wouldn't trade for anything....

Marlou said...

Oh Skippers is adorable. Love his new hair do, doesn't he look different! Bless him. Our little puppy could do with a trim at the groomers I keep doing his fringe but I think he could do with an all over trim by someone who knows what they are doing. Hope our Max looks as cute when he's been. Lol!

This little guy will be the best puppy. I've had 2 Bichon Frieze, a male & female and now have a Bichon Havanese. The Bichon part of your puppy will keep you entertained with his antics and they are so smart, too. Jackie/Oregon
