Oh, Fred! (AGAIN!)

Fred is being groomed today for the first time.

Fred was feeling very “Monday” yesterday!

He’s gone in for baths before, of course.

But this time, for the first time ever, he’s getting his shaggy ears trimmed to look like Newf ears.

(The brownish color you see on his ears is remnant puppy fur.  The puppy coat lightens up prior to falling out and being replaced by his adult coat.)

I figured it was time for an ear trim since Fred will be turning ONE YEAR OLD later this week.

(He didn’t come home to live with me until January, but he was born on October 30th.)

It’s next to impossible to find a groomer who knows what a Newf is supposed to look like in Orange County.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed Fred doesn’t come back looking like a poodle.

In other news, my arm is getting better.

Paul Newman was pretty horrified at how messed up I was when he saw me last Friday.

My arm wasn’t where it was supposed to be, and the upper right quadrant of my body was in the wrong places.


I think it exhausted him to try and get my body parts back to where they’re supposed to be.

I’m going to see Paul Newman again tomorrow.

I’m on the road back, I think.

Although, I have to say this prolonged period of pain has been an extreme emotional downer for me.

I forgot how utterly depressing it is to live with that level of pain for more than a couple days.

Life has been on hold for two weeks … and counting!

Anyway, I’ll take some photos of handsome Fred tonight or tomorrow.

I’m sure he will want me to share his handsome self with you.

I can’t believe it’s almost Halloween!

    Hoping Fred comes home looking like a Newfy as well! And glad your arm is feeling a touch more normal, well, normal for you.

    I am finding myself sympathising with you quite a lot this last week. My hubby snapped his distal bicep tendon (the one that controls how we turn our arms) in his right (dominant) arm last Monday. After surgery Thursday he isn’t allowed to move it at all for two weeks (only a few more days….). Though I am blessed, in that after I put his shirt over that arm, he can do everything else himself. But I am seeing first-hand how frustrating it must be for you.

      I’m so sorry to hear about your husband. I’m sure it’s difficult for both of you. And yes, being one armed is frustrating! I hope he feels better soon!
