Our Handsome Bubbas!

First of all a Warning!! If you do not love dogs, just close out this post and go to another....this is dog loving overload....I Warned You!
Second - A Disclaimer - Yes, I understand that I am not this dog's momma and hubby is not daddy....I also understand that there probably are smarter and cuter dogs someplace in the world...and yes, I KNOW his name is officially Bentley, but Bubbas works too!!

Poor Bentley needed to be groomed. But wow, grooming costs have gone up and we had to put it in the budget...so Bentley Bubbas became Shaggy dog for a while. Plus, we never took him to a groomer and were a little concerned how he might do.
Here are some sad before pics....

that is a shaggy paw....that got in some dirt...but we won't tell that story...he was sorry.

Still shaggy.

So last Friday, off Bentley went to be groomed. Let's say Danielle, the groomer, had her hands full. He was not happy....but she did a pretty good job and here is Bentley Bubbas now!

Look, he has cute doggie paws!

I am tired "momma"...that grooming takes a lot out of a guy!

But I know I am cute.....do you want to hug me and squeeze me and pet me????

Ok.....I am done...for now. Say bye Bentley!! (Woof, woof) See, I told you he was smart!!

I knew I could keep on reading 'cause I am a major dog/animal lover! I have 2 dogs I love so so much! Bentley looks so cute and I'm sure he is happy that the ordeal is over. Hope you are feeling better!

Melissa Miller said...

Hi Ceekay,
I thought I left you a comment on on this post last night?
Hmmm...He is soooo adorable!

A self stirring pitcher has a little handle at the top with a stick attached that stirs for you. No need for a spoon. It's really neat. If you go back to my post I left the link with it pictured on Pampered Chef's site. We love ours!

I hope you try the pancake soon. It's soooo yummy!

Have a blessed Holiday weekend my friend, ~Melissa ;)

Unknown said...

Your not really his Momma?! :)

He's so sweet. Give him a hug and kiss for me!


Sue said...

I adore dogs!! And Bentley can smile....I had a dog once that could smile on command...He's adorable...I have a huge Great Pyrenees and he loves to be groomed...he's so big it takes the groomer a few days to do his whole body...lots of fur to take care of...we don't ever get his hair cut...they brush out all the knots and tangles....

What a cutie!

Hi Ceekay! First off thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving me a comment--always great to get them! Second, yes, Robin Brown's wedding was covered by Romantic Country. Third, I am sorry to hear that you are battling cancer. I will keep you in my prayers for a full recovery. God bless you.


The Berry's Patch said...

Oh what a handsome fella! I could just eat him up!! Well, as a dog lover you know what I mean.

Anyway, I'm so excited to be back to blogging. I have so many ideas for tablescape Tuesday...all because of you Ceekay. :-)

Ah, Bentley DOES look adorable!! We were hit and miss on grooming when we had our dogs....even back then, the cost was not in our budget. Kitties, however, groom themselves. Well, I did have one who got knots in his fur and I had to trim him up a bit. He didn't like it and he didn't look too swell, but it felt better when I petted him! :)

I hope you're feeling much better by now, CeeKay!!

L, Dana

Bentley is such a charmer! Hope the new week brings you energy and peace. Take care. Sally

CeeKay, Bentley is a doll...groomed or ungroomed!

I could send you the doggie stamps & you could send them back to me when you are finished w/ them. There's a lot of different ones in the bag & I'm sure you'll use at least a few of them. And they're so lightweight that shipping should be cheap.

I'm not planning on using them anytime soon & besides, I'm such a procrastinator that even if I were planning on it, I wouldn't get around to it probably. ;o)

Email me your addy & I'll get them in teh mail to you.

Ceekay...what a handsome sweetie! My Mollie would sure be his new best friend if we lived close!

Thanks for sharing my friend. Hope this finds you doing wonderfully well!
