Default No More Topknot!

I finally gave up and cut Bailey's topknot off! I started topknot training him with a little band the second day he was home, but he always hated it. I had to redo it several times a days, but it was always a shaggy matted mess.

The fist picture is his Before hairdo, the second his After. We're both happy he has eyes now!

He looks adorable without it. Like you said you can see his eyes and I am sure he is much more comfortable without having to worry about pulling out his topknot.

He is georgeous boy Marj. his little face jumped out at me. I love it. He reminds me of Sammie.

Default Water

Good Morning my fellow furrbaby lovers!!

I have a question obout the water we give our precious babies. We have a circulating water fountain for all of our babies and the manufacturer recommends distilled water only for the fountain. Is this ok for our babies or do they need flouride from tap water? I know that their teeth are fragile and I woke up un the middle of the night thinking about this. Any ideas?? Thanks, Abby

I love it so much better when you can see those big dark eyes.

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

Bailey looks gorgeous. I do find it ironic that the bow makers son doesn't want to wear bows. MiMi immediately messes up her top knot too. But if I put a regular bow on it, she really messes with it. She will only tolerate the tiny bows you use for doubles. Oh well.

I love it! He looks so handsome. I bet he loves it too!

I would hate to live in a world without dogs, glass, or wine...
