Dear Chris, Maws & Paws, My personal Groomer – Human Being,

The next time you come please do not make me look like a hedge-dog*.

Cutting dogs’ fur into perfect cubes, is the latest dog hairdressing trend to sweep Asia.  “It is not known where the inspiration for the trend originated, but the look has been cropping up at dog shows around Asia in recent months.”

“Hairdresser Tain Yeh, who runs a parlour in Taipei told the Daily Mail: “It came about because people were always looking for more impressive haircuts, and somebody came up with the idea of shaping the dog like a hedge.”’ (HEDGE!, sounds like the Organic Green Revolution has gone to the dogs) . . .  “The dogs don’t mind, (humph!, we are just too polite to complain) and the owners keep coming back for more. This sort of haircut needs a lot more maintenance than the regular type.”

“She warned that the look isn’t one which works for all dogs and has this advice for any British dog owners seeking to emulate the slick cubes: “It is also not suitable for all breeds. The dog needs to have plenty of hair to play around with so that you can shape it around the face and body.” (I’d love to get my paws on a pair of clippers and trim human-beings to look like a poodle . . . or a HEDGE . . . or a  . . .)

*Frankly, I prefer the round look when I’m groomed

See you soon Chris!

On my way to work

Frankly Freddie – Andy Warhol Goes to the Dogs

Dear all my Human-Beings,

My Aunt Jamey and Uncle Hank gave my human-being an “Andy Warhol” pillow.  She thought it looked like me and laughed and laughed.  (Jamey & Hank are much more cosmopolitan than my human-being and would never see a resemblance)

I immediately called Chris from Maws ‘n Paws to give me a make-over.  

My Human-being means well but I don’t want to encourage her.

(I took off my glasses for the photo shoot so you could see my eyes.)  

Andy, eat your heart out!

P.S.  Aunt Jamey, Uncle Hank – if you give my human any more pillows make sure they are floral prints.  A new hair-do is expensive.
