Gipetto Gets a Haircut

Our Gipetto is the only dog left here that ever needs a haircut. He is part poodle and part maltese, and when his hair gets too long it is a groomer's nightmare. Our friend Chiloe at The Animal House has been my groomer for many years now, and always gives our old Geeps such tender loving care. But it sure does tire him out!
Oops! Something or somebody just ran by, disturbing his sleep

But he is used to the action around here and curls right back up for his nap. Gipetto will be 19 years young in June. What a Blessing to have our old friend with us for so long...

Wow, 19 - that is fantastic. Gipetto is so sweet, bet everyone at the groomers loves him.
Long may you enjoy many more haircuts gorgeous!

Thank you my friends! Geeps is a sweet boy but now that he is older he can be a bit crotchety at times. Lola always lets me give him his cookies because she says "he gets grumpy sometimes" Honestly, i think he goes to take the cookie, and because he can't see very well, he sometimes misses and pinches a bit. It never hurts when that happens because he doesn't have many teeth left!:)
