Everyone knows it's Pet Pride, or not much pride

Lindy in happier days, with all her lovely curls.

I don't know why they did this.

Who’s squeaking out with some help from her toy cow?
Making a noise that shows us she cares?
Who wants to go for a walk with her dad now?
Nobody knows it’s Lindy.
Went to the groomer's for a new haircut,
Disguised from everybody she sees,
We know it’s her, without all her curls, but
No one else knows it’s Lindy.

And Lindy has big brown eyes
That smile when her friends come by,
And she has a tail that wags
Among the crowds, among the crowds.
I'm not even sure I'm me.
Who’s on a leash on the paths of the coulee,
Wagging at everybody she sees?
She’s reaching out to to say hi to a kitty
Who just doesn't know it’s Lindy.

It's okay, kitty. It's me, it's Lindy. See?

Aw, it's no use. Nobody believes me.

Maybe I can get out, and run away.
Or maybe I'll just have a nap, instead. Until my curls grow back.

Do you get her cut that short every summer? She actually looks pretty good and you won't need to brush those curls for a while still.

Lindy, curls or no curls, you are beautiful to us.
We live on the other side of the globe and is half a day earlier than you.
Have a great weekend. Purrs!

Oh Lindy, I'm sure she'll smile soon. She should be feeling cooler and more comfortable, I hope.

Sometimes I worry about my dogs getting heat stroke but I haven't been giving them hair cuts. I just supply ample water in a big dog bowl. My dog loves to splash the water all over.

Love that last photo with Lindy pointing at DOG.

I know how you feel, Lindy!! I feel naked when I get a haircut! Just glad they leave me some eyebrows to hide behind!! You look terrific to me!!

The music was in my head as I read your poem, that was fun. Poor Lindy, we still recognize you even without your curls.

Gemma Wiseman said...

Awwwwwww Lindy does look quite lost without her curls! But her face, her eyes are still the very beautiful Lindy!

Bonjour sweet Lindy!
How lucky you are, a music about you!
Lovely song.
Please don't worry about your "hair", you are always adorable and beautiful and I love you so much, you are such a lovely girl!
So, we can play together in our dreams!
purrs and love

You know Lindy, women from time to time need a new haircut especially in summer otherwise it's too hot. Your curls will grow back for the winter. Meanwhile I think you still look beautiful !

I think you look beautiful with and without curls. Your curls will grow again in time for winter but for now you need to keep cool:-)

Cute shots of Lindy and her new do. She is still a pretty dog. I would like to have my Goldie Girl clipped too.

Lindy, you have a fashionable summer cut. A girl has to change up her look now and then to keep the world on its toes.

Leslie said...

poor little girl. i have a friend whose dog used to feel just this way when his beautiful coat was shorn :(

Jenn Jilks said...

How sweet! Aren't pets grand?
Thank you for visiting my cottage country !

Awww, Lindy, it happens to us too you know! When we come from the hairdresser's cursing hey I only wanted 2 centimetres off so why have I got 10 off? :-)

I've had to do that too, at times, as Jas gets such mats.....soon she will be groomed again but this time not shaved, just tidied up. Lindy os SOOOOOOOOO beautiful (especially with curls.) How old is she? Jas is six.
