Good Dog, Bad Daddy! – Big Bear Is in the Dog House [PHOTOS]
Summer is here (no really it is) and the weather is going to get hot. My wife and I made an appointment to have our 2-year-old Golden Retriever Mojo groomed with a summer cut.
With both of us having a busy Monday, I said, “Hey! Let me help! I will take Mojo to the groomer’! So off we went! Oh boy — a car ride! Dogs love car rides!
We arrived at the groomers and she came out giving Mojo lots of love and then she asks me, “Do you want him cut like Jake?” I said, “sure sounds great!” Not thinking that Jake was our good old boy that had hair like a bear and we had to have him shaved every six months because he was such a fluff ball.
The groomer said OK and said that she would be sure to call the wife when he was done and off he went. And I went to work thinking nothing more than when I get home I will have a great looking dog with no mats or tangled feathers.
I called home at lunch time and the wife was a little upset. “OMG! Mojo is naked! He’s been shaved”! My heart sank and I looked for a place to hide. None could be found. I told my wife that I told the groomer that I wanted him just like Jake not realizing what I had said and thinking that I actually meant Rusty, our other Golden Retriever that just got groomed with a good looking hair cut.
I felt horrible.
Poor Mojo was now going to be ridiculed by the other dogs. I posted this on Facebook and I got lots of comments re-assuring me that it was going to be OK. Mojo will appreciate his shave when the weather gets hot and it will keep him nice and cool. But that I do have to careful of sunburn (he has no hair).
So here are a couple of pictures that we took and I think the eyes say it all. Mojo still loves me but I think he is saying “Dad… you’re an idiot”.
