Off to the Hairdresser and Vet

Howdy Everybuddy

We've got a busy day planned.  I am off to the Beauty Parlour.  I know, I know.  I can hear you say, but why Stella?  I don't know either.  Mum says my matted, smelly hair is NOT attractive.  Well, that's her opinion.  If she's too lazy too busy to brush me, well that's her problem.  Butt, the more I think of it, I have to agree with mum.  Short hair will be sooo much cooler especially with the heat we've been having.  Did you know Thursday last week, Adelaide was predicted to be the hottest city in the world?  Yep, the prediction was for 46C (115F) but we actually only reached 44C (111F).  We had five days of over 40C and let me tell ya mates, it was darn hot.

 My before hairdresser photo.

Also today Rory is going back to the Vet for a final check up.  He was supposed to go last week butt the weather was toooo hot.  He is still wobbly and wonky but can get up to the letterbox in record time when he hears the Postman.  Mum is always yelling (and yes, she sounds like an old wharfie, hehe) when he does this cause he stumbles and bumps and sometimes drags his foot along but boy oh boy, he does enjoy a good woof at that poor Postman.

 Check out the spoiled brat sitting on the lounge.

Mum's main concern is Rory's foot.  He has one sore on his toe pad and a extremely shortened nail due to dragging that will not heal.  We are waiting for a special shoe/boot thingy to arrive in the mail that will protect his foot more.  Mum has been bandaging and stuffs but the little buggar always manages to get it off. 

Anyhoo, we're going along just fine.  Here's a photo of our family room and the lovely coloured mat (gag), and all the towels mum has spread around to catch the blood spots from going on the carpet.  Once Rory's foot has healed we're getting new flooring, thank dog.   



Here's my two little brothers.
Ya can tell they're related cause they are both tall.

 Oh, and we had a little visitor the other day.  This is Nancy the goat from across the paddock.  She came by to say howdy and we said howdy back in a really loud way hehehe. 

See ya soon mates.
No worries, and love, Stella and Rory



  1. Have you tried the sticky self sticking bandages the vets use on Rory's foot? Or a sock - that worked on Reilly when he had a bad paw - we just taped the top of it. Mom's sis live in Port Augusta and we know she was hot hot there.

  2. I'll look forward to seeing your 'new do' Stella, I'm sure you'll be just stunning!!

    I'm also glad that Rory is feeling better, and I hope that special shoe comes soon, and that tender foot heals!

    Take care, and stay cool!!

  3. Well Stella, go and get lookin good for Mom, and you keep your eye on the big guy, glad to hear he is acting like a pup again!

  4. Have you noticed that WE are the ones who end up with baths and haircuts because our PARENTS think we need them? Maybe our parents should try bathing themselves, first and then see if the smell is us or them! Heehee!

  16. Stella you will look BEAUTIFUL after your visit to the furs parlor. AND you will be Cooler fur sure. We have been hearing about the HORRID HEAT that you have been suffering.
    Poor Rory... he is so brave. And he has not prevented this from going POSTAL on the Postman. He and your other brother ARE both TALL and they even have the same furs color. Like TWINS.
    We hope Rory's Boot thingy comes quickly and work perfectly.

  17. Bet you are going to look stunning. Hope your toe feels better soon Rory

  18. I hope you will get only good news at the vet and your toe pad will heal quickly, Rory. Good luck at the hair saloon, I'm sure you will look fabulous ( but you are anyway always fabulous) Stella.

  19. We love hearing that he is moving better!

    Stop on by for a visit

  20. We are glad to hear that Rory is improving! Barking at the post man is huge!

    Can't wait to see your after photo, Stella!

  22. Hey Stella!
    Wow, you look great to me, but I'm sure you'll be gorgeous after your spa trip! I'm especially fond of your blond patch on top. BOL
    Hey Rory!
    Wow, you are doing great my furiend! I'm so glad you can chase after the postalpeep. Gotta keep them in line. Hope your dogtor visit goes well.
    Grr and Woof,

  23. I hope the hairdresser gave you lotsa treats! And I hope that Rory's paw is healing. I love the photo of him sitting on the lounge.

  24. Can't wait to see the new haircut! So glad Rory is feeling better.

    I think Reilly-Denny Cowspotdogs might be thinking of Vet Wrap, it clings to itself and works pretty well on horses and dogs. :)

  25. We also had to go for baths yesterday *YUCK* Good luck for Rory's check up and we hope that booty arrives soon.

  26. Well Stella, lots happening over in your bit of Oz, and don't worry you'll just look extra gorg-e-ous when you have your hair styled. that's good news that brother Rory is doing well, it'll be good when that foot heals tho. Yes, I heard on the news that Adelaide was the hottest city in the world that day and I have to tell you I was mighty surprised, because I would have laid a bet that Townsville was! Oh yes. -woof- -pat-

  27. Nothing better on a hot day than a refreshing bath and a haircut. You'll feel loads better after, Stella!
    How did Rory's final vet check turn out? It's amazing that he recovered so well already. Hopefully things will keep on going forward.
