Please don't laugh at me...and we have been featured!

Woof woof everybuddy!

Sorry we are so behind on everyone's blogs along with actually writing our own! We (well the publicist) have been soo busy lately, Mum went to London for a few days, then decided to re decorate THEN we have had a heat wave here so we just haven't even had chance to get our paws on the laptop AT  ALL lately :(
The weather is meant to break soon, so we will have lots of time stuck inside, hehe.

Firstly a BIG thank you to Oskar & Pam over at Pet Blogs United for featuring us here! Please go visit the site, the duo do wonderful things and make sure you check out the other featured bloggers too, there are some really cool peeps!

Now each Summer Dante gets a hair cut because he has alot of fur to lug around and he over heats easily, see how hot he is on the pictures above? Now Mum normally gives him a cut like so:

Now she normally does quite a good job, beside some odd bald bits, so considering she ins't a groomer we will let her off. But this year (and partly because the clippers broke) she decided to take him to the groomers.
The groomers were given specific instructions 'keep his tail and ears long and just trim him just to take the edge of the warm weather'
He went to the groomers like this, a big fuzzy bear:

And came this:

Needless to say Mum was NOT impressed, they shaved the poor lad! See all his bald patches? She will not be taking him there again. It gave us all a jolly good laugh though.

Never mind big lad, it will grow back, eventually!

We promise to get round all your blogs in the next few days once Mum has freed some time up, in the mean time have a great week everyone and please laugh at Dante some more!


  1. Hiya, I just came over from PBU, Oskar and Pam sent me. I like your will follow if that's OK...hope it cools off in UK soon...Mom says that a heat wave is kinda unusual, huh?!

  2. Two Doodles and a Dane....
    I know what you mean about the heat and computers.... I literally sweat like some pig during hot weather while I'm on it!! Seriously.... :-(
    Congrats on being featured!! How neat is that!! I cannot wait to read your post!! ;-D
    Dante looks like a totally new "breed"!! And, by the way? I refuse to laugh.... ;op
    Love, Raelyn.... And Rose my Beautifully Unique "Mystery Dog"!!

  3. Awwww - poor Dante :(
    Hopefully, it grows back soon, Buddy!

  4. Oh, Dante I still think you look adorable and it will be alot cooler for you! Saw you over at PBU, awesome!!

  5. Mom says the groomer's idea of a trim and the owner's are usually so different. She once had two cockapoos who had to go to the groomers too. They would come home skinned alive - so silly looking too. Dante, you are still handsome to us, and all that gorgeous fur will grow back in.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  6. Ah HAHAHAHAHAHA. Ooops. I do hope Dante doesn't take any offense in that... Ahhh Hahahaha Baldy. Okay, that's enough. Sorry.

    Anyway, keep it coming mom. Those picture will be priceless someday. He reminds me of a poodle... Oh, so chic!

    Congratulations on being featured!

    Huggies and Cheese,


  7. OH Dante ;)

    As you said, it'll grow back!

  8. Dante, you look just as adorable and very cool and handsome!
    Now you can enjoy all your walks without that heavy fur - wish we could do the same.

  9. Oh blimey Dante mate; you can really see your Poodle heritage now hehe! Deccy x

  10. Oh my. Poor Dante. What was the groomer thinking? We won't laugh though, at least we will try not to laugh. :)

    I liked you better when you had more HAIR!

    Oh silly me.

  13. Oh DEAR! Poor Dante!! On the bright least Dante will be cooler...

    It has been SO HOT here too!!
    xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

  14. Oh noooo ! Are you going to have to wear a wig ????
    Lots of slobbers!

  15. Oh, Dante! At least you'll be nice and cool for a couple of weeks. ;)

  16. Oh Dante, don't worry mate, it will grow back. Grrr to that silly groomer too. Hey you might be more aerodynamic now? See ya mates. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  17. Oh heavens, that was not a good groomer. I guess she'll stick to doing it herself.

    Nubbin wiggles,

  18. Oh Dear,

    You made me LOL too!! Sorry Dante, I couldn't help it!!

    There's no way I'm going anywhere near a groomers, I'll just lie in the shade….

    I hope it grows back quickly buddy :)

    Your pal Snoopy :)

  19. Oh poor Dante! I have had a few odd haircuts in my day, too - of course, usually when my mom has the clippers in her hands. She always makes me look lop-sided!

    Your pal, Pip

  20. Poor Dante!!! But I bet he feels a whole lot cooler. I have short white furs and I get very hot in the summer, so I imagine it is very very very hot to have long black furs. And it will soon grow in a bit.

  21. Oh My Dante, I am so sorry about the hair cut dude, they really went a bit off the deep end, didn't they. I have been emberassed about how my belly was shaved after my surgery a few months ago, but that was nothin compared to what the groomer did to you.

    But, it grows back.....eventually.....

    It was worth a good laugh for My Vickie though.

    Stay Cool

  22. Looks like the groomer got carried away and cut too much of your fur. No worries, you're still as dashing as ever.

  23. BOL! Oh Dante you look er um uh trim yeah that's it ;) Hardy Har Har It'll grow back pal :)

    Waggin at ya,

  24. OOooh ma gooderyness, whot a shayme fur poor dante, therr is nutthin worse thann a badd hairdoo, n dat ees defernatly a badd hairdoo! Oh deers, i hopes eet grows backk soon! love n likkers, pdorg xox

  25. still ROCK, my friend!

  26. Don't worry Dante, it will grow back!! And we didn't really notice that it looked funny :)

    Our human knows how useless some groomers are a grooming doodles, she has some friends that took their doodles to the groomers and they came back horrible!!
    Lucky our human has dabbled in a bit of grooming herself and grooms her friends doodles EXACTLY how they want it :) Apparently her work gets lot of compliments at the dog park! *Hee! Hee!* Not bad for an amatuer :p

    Lots of slobbers,
    Lexi and Jasper the Danes

  27. Bald patches or not.... Dante is still irresistible in our book! Mind you it's taken us so flipping long to post, his hair has probably grown back by now!
