A DAY AT THE SPA

Good morning Winslow Homer, do you remember what today is? Oh come on now put a smile on your face, it's not going to be that bad. There will be lots of eye candy and remember how lovely you smell after a day at the spa. Okay, "manly". No, I promise you don't need to have your nails done. Good boy.... Come on lets get you in your seat belt. Hum, seems a little tight, yup you can ride in Mama's new car, just don't touch anything, keep your nose of the windows, no changing the radio station and remember NO EATING or DRINKING!
This afternoon I noticed a larger than normal amount of noise and activity going on in the hen yard, (usually the girls only carry on like this when I do something stupid like lock myself in.) What's up girls, I ask?
My younger girl's Fern and Pheobe were curious too. Nope, there is no one new at Dog Trot Farm. Nope, I haven't noticed anything or anyone strange.
Gladys I ask, what is going on with those sisters of yours? I swear I noticed a grin on Gladys' face along with the distinct cackle of hens behind me.
Now girls that is not very ladylike....
A face that can only melt a mother's heart, oh, and he smells like lemon verbena too! Girls, get that smirk off your face!

What a handsome gentleman he is! Such a cute face. He is just the best dog! I love how he is just looking deep into the camera. It looks almost like I can hear him panting. Great picture.

Oh My does he look handsome all cleaned and shaven - and smelling like lemon verbena is just icing on the cake - those naughty hens - they don't know a good-looking man when they see one. Did he remember to not put nose prints on the windows? And I love the front license plate on your new car. Thanks for the laugh tonight, Miss Julie. Take care, from KY.

This is my first visit to your sweet blog but I will be returning! Your Winslow looks much like my cairn terrorist, Buster (the beast of the east)!

Little Rosie's Cairn heart is beating at triple time - she and Winslow would make a very sweet pair!

He's a beauty. I'm sure all the girls were checking him out!

The male twin had a haircut today, and I dare say they may have the same stylist, the bangs look quite similar. On the other hand, the male twin doesn't smell like lemon verbena. Perhaps I should have a word with Vince the barber? : )

Ohhhhh, Winslow Homer, you totally melt my heart, too. SUCH a handsome boy you are...and what a bonus, to smell like lemon verbena, too!
Roxy Louise just went to the groomer a little over a week ago and she got the "Cairn cut". I think she looks adorable.

WooooEEEEE! That is a shiny Ride that is takin' Winslow to the spa! Winslow looks very handsome and those sparkling sweet eyes look as though he is planning some mischief. I think those girls of yours are just jealous Julie that they can't ride in that shiny new car and hang their feathery little heads out the window!

*I am assuming all is well at Dog Trot this morning with respect to Earl and his wicked self.

Oh, what a difference a trip to the spa makes!

OOOOOH, Winslow Homer you are soooo handsom. Stay out of those pricker bushes. I bet the girls are just amazed at how well you clean up. Keep an eye on them so the foxes don't get any ideas.
