Momi decided it was time to take me in to a professional groomer.  So today I got all my long hair cut off.  Momi gave the groomer a photo of how she wanted me to look but that's not what I look like.   This is me when I was a puppy.

The groomer said it was because I moved while she was cutting the top of my head.  Momi said not to worry... it will grow out soon enough.

Here is a before and after shot.



Caiche' wants to know who I am.  She doesn't recognize my new look or my pretty new smell or my neck scarf.

I'm not sure if I like this new look or not.  It sure will be easier to keep up.  Momi won't have to be combing my face every few hours or putting rubber bands in my hair.  I never liked those rubber bands and would scratch at them all the time.

Momi says I've lost my soft look and that I now have a hard look on my face - especially around the eyes.   She says I no longer look like a Shih Tzu.  I think it will look good in about a month or so when the top grows out a little.  That will give me a break from all that daily grooming.

Here I am off leash.  Momi lets me run free if there is no one on the beach.  I had a good time on this trip.  Can't wait to go back.

Momi is trying to get me to do one of my tricks but I don't want to.  I want to play on the beach.

I haven't posted during the month of November because I was on a trip in the motorhome with Momi, Caiche' and Bunny Kitty.  We went to Texas and visited many beaches.  We met some really nice people who had some really nice doggies.  I also met some other animals that I had never seen before.

I really liked this little male Shih Tzu.

I love the beach and I had fun until I got sick from Red Tide.  Momi got sick, too.  We had thought about staying for another month but finally decided to come home.  I enjoy riding in the motorhome and sleep most of the time.  Momi got really tired driving 4 to 5 hours a day and we went to bed very early every night cause she was so tired.

I had to wear my pink shoes a lot due to sand spurs that were everywhere.  They hurt my feet and also got all over my face.  It was hard for Momi to pull them out of my fur.  So I didn't get to walk as much as I do when I'm at home.

When Momi pulled into our driveway I knew I was home and got really excited.  So did the cats.  We all were so happy to be back home.  Last night Momi cooked a Gumbo and our neighbors came over and Ms. Carolyn brought over her American Eskimo doggie for me to play with and everyone had a good time.  They are coming back tonight to enjoy a backyard fire in our new firepit.

Momi is planning another trip to the beach here at Grand Isle.  I like going to that beach.  Our friend Mr. Pat lives near there and we always go to his house for a visit before going to the State Park.  When we're at the beach I get to ride in my little red cart behind Momi's bicycle.  We go all over the park and I get to see every little doggie and say hello to all the people who are camping.  We build a fire in the firepit everynight and sit out under the stars till the fire goes out.  Looking forward to this trip.
