All Right, I Give In!

Yesterday it stopped raining here in Michigan and got hot!  Oskar’s with long hair do poorly in the hot.

I’m also tired of being told I’m smelly, messy & that I look like a “ragamuffin” whatever the dog that is.

I’ll go for my grooming tomorrow, like a manly dog…

But that doesn’t mean that I have to look at her!

Stay tuned, she’ll be talking about the Iams/Eukanuba Research & Development Center in our next post.

  1. Our Mom is very partial to the ragamuffin look. She once had a "Muffin" who always looked like a ragamuffin, even after grooming, but she was so loved.

    We hope Mom gives you lots of treats after your spa treatment.

  2. And the nest – when you have had your fur trimmed – it will get cold again and you will freeze!!! That is what the law of averages say at least.

  3. You know, I'm the type of dog who is against grooming but sometimes you just NEED it. You can do it Oskar! I bet you will look & feel so much better after a trim.

  4. ragamuffin still a muffin.. and EVERYBODY loves muffins 😀

    hope you'll have a good day at the groomers and make sure your momma gives you lotta noms when yous come back ya!

  6. We love the Ragamuffin look, our humans say we look like Beatles when we need a trim ( the group that is!)- Louis always shivers after a trim, he does it on purpose now just to make HER feel guilty so you could try that one…good for an extra treat or two if nothing else 😉 Dex & Lou x

  7. Long fur and HOT do not mix well, my pal…trust me on that! I hope after your visit to the groomer, ya cool down a bit!

  8. hey Oskar,

    Who doesn't love a ragamuffin?! ;->

    It is very hot and humid here, too, so I feel your pain. But you seem to have the right idea by napping in the house on the couch! Good luck at the groomer's tomorrow. You will be in my thoughts as my sympathies are with you. BOL!


  9. It was super hot in Michigan yesterday! We had to turn the air conditioning on for poor Macho who couldn't get comfortable. Hope you're staying cool and are ready for the rain we're supposed to get today (again!).

  10. It got super hot and humid here yesterday. Holly needs to be groomed and she will not like it but it's coming up!! Oskar, you will look and feel much better although we love the way you look now!! Lots of love, Debbie & Holly

  11. We think you still look very handsome…and a ragamuffin sounds like something yummy 😉

  12. Oooooh a grooming. Felix needs one of those two. He looks like a ragamuffin too. Just imagine how handsome you two will be when it is all over?

  13. yep..we go from winter right into summer. Our air conditioning is broken. It was nearly 90 inside of our condo. I am an ass and paid a friend of a friend $2800 back in january to fix our heater/air conditioner…problem is, he NEVER fixed it….canceled on us nearly 25 times. I normally would NEVER pay someone in advance but I know his girlfriend and trusted him….I am a real idiot! Hence my post this morning 🙁

  14. Your mum lets you get away with a LOT MORE than mine does….I get groomed all the time….yesterday she had the scissors around my private bits (oh !) I object to that!!!!!!!!!

    Just think how handsome you will be when you come back from the groomers!! Woo Hoo!

  15. Oh, La, La!! Can't wait to see how you look after your grooming appointment.

    BTW, did you get your Winning Prize Collar, yet?

    Have a fun day!

  16. Ooh, Oskar – you know I love that "rustic" natural look but I think you'll be so handsome after a groom! 🙂

  17. Oo i hate to say this but a visit to the groomer is much needed during hot days though I do like your ragamuffin look.
    Get your mommy to reward you plenty since you're cooperating with her..LOL

    Love ya,

  18. Hey Oskar,
    I think you're very adorable, for a canine, that is. As for the grooming session….hmmm….I don't like getting wet or my fur shaved off too. meowww…Nikki

    p.s. am blogging now until Angelina's return.

  19. Hey Oskar!
    Wow, I'd like for you to send some of that heat to me…it's chilly and damp here! Normally, I'd not be in favor of the grooming, but if it helps with the heat it might be worth it. We definitely all want to see pix of before and after!
    Grr and Woof,

  20. Oskar,

    Does your hair get curley too when it is hot and humid? Mine does..I get quite a few curls. Elvis on the other hand hair stays as straight as can be.

    Your pal,
