Three times in the last week Mom has dragged me over to work for a haircut. Well, for some reason or another, mostly because Mom was too tired, I think, I never got my haircut!!! Finally, yesterday, she actually gave me MY haircut FIRST before any of the paying clients!!
Well, there were a few problems. First of all, I usually get a haircut when Momsie thinks I look too fat! (I must admit, it usually works to make me thinner, at least LOOK thinner!) This time, Mom wasn't impressed... she clipped and clipped and, while obviously keeping me in enough hair to keep me warm (especially if she forgets and leaves me outside again, BOL) she was totally unable to make me look thin!!!
Next was the issue of my mousietache. During the Winter when it is dark and dreary, I don't get enough sun on my face to keep my mousietache looking its best. The hair near my mouth gets all dark and stained and my skin gets pink from the lack of sun.
Well, after much thought, Momsie decided, in her infinite wisdom, to shave off my mousietache completely. WHAT!!! I have had that mousietache for over FOUR years!! (Hey, that reminds me, I will be SIX YEARS old this month, in fact, in just three weeks from today!!!)
After my shave down, while I still had the mousietache, Tonya gave me a bath. Momsie dried me with that FORCE dryer, and then finished my groom, carefully trimming my topknot, clipping my nails, and rounding out my poof tail.
Next, she and Tonya went off to the break room with me and Jethro. Momsie asked her if she liked my new look... Tonya didn't even NOTICE I was missing my mousietache and Mom had to tell her it was gone!!! I could only assume it would be alright when I got home.
IT WASN'T... all the other dogs ganged up on me and were calling me names and bullying me. I thought bullying was illegal???? Anyway, they all called me a sissy and laughed and laughed about my short nose.
I have told Mom that she will be allowing my mousietache to grow back, no matter what. As for letting my ears grow long again, no thank you! With no mousietache and with long ears I will definitely look like a girl, just like Riley looks like a girl, and, for that matter, Toto looks like a girl, too. I prefer the more MANLY look, thank you very much!!!

I can't wait to see the photo - I bet you look handsome even without the mousietache.
Hope you get your stache back!
Maybe.. all the scissors need to be "hidden"
