Ready For a New Look
I was at the groomers last week. Greta, a schnauzer, had a hairdo that absolutely knocked me out. The groomer had spiked the hair on the top of her head with hair gel and shaved the hair on her body close to her skin. That girl was rocking.
When my Mom came to pick me up, I immediately ran over to Greta to make sure she saw Greta’s haircut.
My Mom said to the groomer, “What’s with the haircut?”
She responded, “Her Mom’s a biker.”
What does your Mom’s vehicle have to do a haircut? Do I have a mini cooper haircut?
Anyway, do you think I can convince my Mom, who is very Girly-Girly, to let me get my hair spiked?
How can you convince her? You can’t.
If You say your Mom is Girly-Girly, your chances of getting a hard rock crop are nil to none.
You do realize the life you live, and the way you look, is your Mom’s idea of how life should be. Girly Moms like nice, pretty, and fluffy. That’s why you have bows in your hair, sleep on a pillow upholstered to match her bed skirt, get carpeted stairs to climb onto her canopied bed, and fly first class. Need I go on?
Do you have any idea how many dogs would kill for a life like yours? How many dogs do you know that travel in a padded designer carrier? You’ve got to admit it beats riding on the back of a motorcycle, particularly in the rain.
