Summer Stock, I mean shock

Robin at Around the Island (I must take the time to put her in my blogroll, I really like her blog) is starting a new photo meme, dedicated to pictures of summer. She asks:

So what says summer to you? Is it the pool? The beach? A backyard barbecue? A comfy old pair of flip-flops?

Here at Casa Baila, the thing that spells s-u-m-m-e-r is what is turning into an annual ritual: The shaving of Ozzy. If you recall, we did this last year. I thought we would never do it again, but the truth is, it's hot here; Ozzy hasn't been his usual energetic self. We decided to do the shave today and now he's back to chasing buses. Apparently he really does feel better without all that hair all over him. So have a good laugh at the expense of poor Ozzy; before you know it, he'll be back to his gorgeous self.





Ozzy wishes all his fans a great summer!

Oh Ozzy! I once had a Pekingese who had to be shaved regularly, but he hid under the bed so no one would see him. Ozzy looks so sad in the second picture--glad he's not shy.

He looks embarrassed in that post-shave shot, but I'll bet he's a LOT more comfortable now. I can barely stand to walk around without a ponytail, I'd die with all that fur on me.

Great choice for Summer Stock Baila, I'm really glad you decided to join us.

Thanks, TEL!

Robin, he DOES look embarrassed! Maybe he thinks he's naked and I'm posting his illicit photo on the web!

Ozzy looks strange now. May be Ozzy can give some courage to his name buddy Osborn to get a haircut for the summer too. That would be equally strange photo :) You are brave! Did Ozzy cooperate during the procedure?
Don't worry Ozzy - we like you - hair or not!

he's beautiful regardless of the haircut :)

Wonderful! I love shaved doggies. I just know they are so much more comfy. Perfectly Summer!

Poor Ozzy! Hope he isn't as hot now.
It is a great meme indeed.

He looks like he lost his coat! Glad he feels better without the excess fur.

thanks for the laugh. Ethan asks the barber for a #4 blade, short enough for the summer but long enough to cover the scar on the back of his head. Maybe ozzie would like a buzz cut rather than a shave.
