Look Ma - no eyes!

As much fun as it is, lately I've been thinking that I need to cut off Tallulah's topknot. This dog has a lot of hair on her head. It's thick and unruly; and it all wants to flow forward to cover her eyes.

If I put her hair in a pony tail, it ends up pointing forward so that she looks like a unicorn. Big heavy barrettes flop forward and render her almost completely blind. Heck - I even tried french braiding the poor dog's hair, but it isn't quite long enough for that.

Finally, I found a clip that does a pretty good job of holding her hair back - but that was right about the time that her eyebrows finally started to grow in; and dang it, they aren't long enough to pull into the clip yet.

This is about 30 seconds after I've put the clip in her hair.
This is what it looks like after a few hours:

Tula's got a grooming appointment in a few weeks. If those eyebrows don't start growing PDQ, methinks it may be time to say goodbye to the topknot.

And, as an aside, I tried to take pictures of Tula earlier, but gave up because she wasn't feeling very cooperative. Before deleting all the bloopers, I had a look.

This one is a perfect representation of my life.

There's cat hairs everywhere. Nothing and nobody can escape them.


  1. Thank you so much Tah-loo-lah-loo-lah! CH and I are having a great laugh to start our morning. I have no idea why but this morning Tula brings Bea Arthur to mind. Janice, NOOOOOOOOOOO don't strip her of her topknot!!

  2. Now that you say it, I see the Bea Arthur too!

    Maybe I should start copying Cupcake Murphy (Odd, Good, True blog) and start posting pictures of Tula posing as various celebrities. Maybe I could expand on Cupcake's idea, and change Tula's hair accordingly. So far, I've heard that she looks like Tina Turner, Oprah (which I really don't see) and Bea Arthur.

  3. LOL at the french braid, I would have liked to see that.

  4. Do you show? If not, I would say the easier the care of the cut, the better.

  5. Hi Gail, thanks for stopping in!

    I don't show Tula. But she thanks you for thinking that she'd qualify to compete.

    Nah, this haircut is just for fun.

  6. hahaha.

    i love torturing animals for a cheap laugh.
