A Lesson From a Dog

Remember Coraggio, this little cutie cockapoo that I work with (such a heartbreak to *have* to work with a dog and kids, too, huh)?


Well, the poor thing went in for his summer hair cut, and ended up getting the worst hair cut I have ever seen on anything. They shaved down to his skin on his chest, his back fur was so uneven it looked like a two year old got ahold of him, they shaved his hair up his neck to near the top of his head to make it look like he has a toupee, and his tail was a wreck. The owner was so sick about it she couldn’t even look at him.

And you know what? That dog doesn’t give a hoot what his fur looks like! He is still one very cheery little dog, bouncing around like life is the best thing. A very good example for us humans, I would say!

    There is SO much we can learn from dogs, aren’t they great.

    Funny. Dogs really don’t care, most of the time. I’ve know a few who were embarrassed when they got a summer shave-down. My Cocker Spaniel would be so matted with clumps of hair that she had a spring and summer shave down. Looked silly for a day or two but she felt GREAT!

    THAT is a cute dog. Lucky you. Little kids and a dog.

    Some dogs are just happy all the time. I had an American Cocker Spaniel that would even wag his tail when at the vet’s office getting shots. He just loved people. Wouldn’t it be great if more people were like that. But then again, maybe they’d be annoying, ha. That is a very cute dog.

    Indeed, how many of us have had the haircut from hell? I am sure (ahem) no one noticed. :c) Still a cutie pie.

    Mimi – for sure!

    Mary – little kids and a dog, but freakin’ grumpy adults make it miserable at times.

    Linda – Yes, it would be, as long as they’re not annoying!

    Jayne – More than once I’ve had the haircut from hell. I’m thinking of growing it long because I haven’t been able to get a decent cut since my hairdresser moved to Colorado.

    I had a little poodle who knew she looked good after a do. I snickered while reading this, can just imagine the look on the owners face when the trimmer brought the dog out.
