Ambrose's Hair

Niamh, the blog hog, has been dominating the posts since we got back to blogging. This is not fair. And of course I have been sadly neglected while Barbara goes off to freestyle competitions with Niamh. My hair had grown very long and I had a series of bad hair days. Some people even asked Barbara if I was part Afghan Hound!!! Now nothing against Afghan Hounds but I am a Gordon Setter through and through.
It is hard to keep one's hair well groomed when other dogs are chewing on it though. My St.Bernard girlfriend, Bella, likes nothing better than to chew on my ears (well I chew on hers too). I like it but it mats up my ears and Barbara has to cut the mats out.
On Friday, Barbara gave me a big grooming and then took me next door to Max's Dog Wash for a bath. I really don't know why Niamh makes such a fuss about being groomed and thinks that it is torture. She is such a princess. I quite like getting fussed over. I am not fond of the blow dryer but I do like the feeling of being brushed. Of course I get lots of cookies when I am up on the grooming table or in the bath.
What do you think? With my head and neck trimmed you can see all my Gordon Setterness.
Today I went to a canine freestyle class to practice my moves. Of course Barbara forgot to bring the camera. You can tell how neglected I am.

You are such a handsome Gordon Setter boy, Ambrose! Mom so wants to put her hand through the puter and pet the top of your head!

You are clearly being neglected and it is just the way of the world. Sadly, being side kick to a princess is your lot in life.

That said, you do clean up well.

Kisses,
Dexter

You clean up well, you handsome thing! I want to know how your mom keeps the hair on the top of your head combed down. My Gordie had a few hairs that always stood up like Alfalfa from The Little Rascals.

I bought a pup with Giarda, severe skin allergies to this day, a bad under bite and he has issues too. he is a good little guy and smart but very expensive to take care of. I would never go to this grooming/pet store again. Every day there seems to be a different problem with him and this is going on 7 yrs.I

My favorite dog, the one I want above all others is a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever. I had bought a beautiful cute dog from large dog breeds list .just kidding - but what a cool name for a dog breed. What I really want is a big luscious red Bull Mastiff or a Dogue de Bordeaux - they have the cutest puppies and love big fat cuddles.
