It's ThunderDay


Hey, everyone - it's me, Thunder Dunder. I don't seem to get much blog time around here lately.  Mom says that's because I am too good in all ways.  I am not picky about my food like Phantom.  I don't look to be a princess like Ciara.  And I most certainly am not in any way like that young one Lightning who is always up to something.

BUT today is my day.  Why do you ask?  No, it is not my birthday (soon, though).  But I was treated royally today. First I have to let you see some embarrassing photos of me, but trust, me it will be worth it.


Mom said I was looking pretty scruffy, see all that dead fur around my neck and a pluckable under my chin.

And then there is my tummy.  It really isn't dirty (I don't do mud any more).  It is just a whole lot of dead fur.



How mortifying - my rump - all messy looking with lots of pluckables despite all of Mom's plucking and brushing.


 And don't forget my furry feeties.  Badly in need of trimming.


BUT LOOK AT ME NOW!!!!!!!!



I spent the morning at the spa.  I had a luxurious bath and lots of massaging.  Then the girl with that blow dryer just loved and hugged and kissed me.  She said if she were a dog, I would be her girl for sure.


 Check out that white tummy and no more scruffy neck!



My feeties are looking quite spiffy if I must say so myself.


In fact I was feeling so good about how I look that I called the whole pack over.



And I told Mom to hand over some of that yummy fish jerky for all of us.


Everyone should have a day like I had today.

Woos - Thunder

You did well ... a pampering ...
My missus wants sometimes so wellnis for themselves ... but she has no time to really.

Hey TD!

You are one handsome pup, that is for sure, and with all your grooming today, even handsomer.

I won't be getting grooming until the snow goes (and we had 3" inches of new stuff today), but after I do get spring grooming, lets have a date, you and I.

Kisses,
Stella

What Remains Now said...

Thunder! You look so wonderful! I had to chuckle about you not getting much blog time. Nikki is the "Thunder" in our home. She is the best, most perfect dog ever...so there is never anything to say about her.

Bunk said...

My oh my! It was raining pugs and pugs today! I was at daycare and when I got out, the city looked like it hard flooded. Playing in the mud sounds awesome though!

GOOSE said...

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Blowing coats and owl feet are happening here too! Your post-spa photos are movie-star handsome, Thunder! You look like a million bucks and a truckload of jerky, as we say at White Dog Ranch!

Oh, you look really good after the human torture! I had one too today! But at home by my sadistic mom! I really hate this! She says that I'm getting better and better and now I don't run all around trying to escape. But I still hate it!
You look amazing!
Love

Hope you get this. Thank you so much for you best wishes to Pip. At 15 we worry when she gets ill and this is at least the third bout of this bug she has had this winter. Luckily she has just started to eat again and drink but she is very frail. Many thanks for thinking of us.
Best wishes Molly

I am overcome with envy, Thunder! You got a spa day? All by yourself? That is soooooo special and, let me tell you, you look like my dream dog!

Cocoa and Melon said...

Thanks for your comment on my most recent post.

I've realised that I probably shouldn't be talking about my friend's situation without her knowing, especially since I haven't at least talked to her first, so I'm removing the post.

I'll let you know if I have any updates on the situation.
