Total win!! Go pommeh!

 |  Dec 09, 2008 at 02:27 PM

Poor guy. Not only did he go bald, his stifles bend backwards...

 |  Dec 09, 2008 at 02:31 PM

On second thought, maybe it Does deserve a beer.

WOOF! my pommies cuter.

 |  Dec 09, 2008 at 02:42 PM

Poor nekkid pom. Thumbs down to stylist.

 |  Dec 09, 2008 at 02:51 PM

the pommie is brave! i like that.

 |  Dec 09, 2008 at 02:55 PM

Other Mike -- there's already an embedded URL in the post, y'know... no idea who might've put it there...

 |  Dec 09, 2008 at 03:08 PM

Brrr! I hope pommie is not in cold weather climes. He might miss his warm coat

 |  Dec 09, 2008 at 03:12 PM

Awww, he looks like a good sport. Don't know why he got a haircut but I definitely prefer how Poms look with all their floof. Is that a necklace he's wearing?

 |  Dec 09, 2008 at 03:37 PM

Some might call it a "collar", SunnyMum, but yes.

 |  Dec 09, 2008 at 03:39 PM

Gaaaahhh!!! Teeny tongue ac-shun!!!

 |  Dec 09, 2008 at 03:40 PM

That poor dog. On another note, I just now noticed, the C.O. background is now flying hammies toting a c.o. calendar! REEE-donkulous!

i have to say, that pup seems quite pleased with his new haircut.

perhaps it was taken this summer. or maybe he had a run-in with a giant blob of chewing gum...

 |  Dec 09, 2008 at 03:52 PM

very funny Teho... ;)
it looks like he's wearing a necklace with a gold bell on it, almost like it's a cat collar. Hmmmmm...

Oh my god, the trapezoid head! It was one of the first CO posts I read, and like Meg I laughed and laughed. Not even sure why really.

 |  Dec 09, 2008 at 04:35 PM

Cute! But that puppy's hair will never grow back the same! Get used to the look, your keepin it for a while!

 |  Dec 09, 2008 at 04:42 PM

hey M-TOM: thanks for the link to trapezoid head! i don't remember seeing it...

and Theo: thanks for the link from trapezoid head comments to an even older post of a tiny ham "supplicating himself to an angry god" on a plastic spoon. you were illustrating how much wittier The-Other-Mike is than That-Mike. M-TOM's drug warning comment made me laugh so hard i just peed myself.

and finally: Theo, you happened to ask M-TOM if he writes for TV or a cartoon or something. i've always wondered, too. did you ever get an answer?

thanks! and sorry for the long post...;P

 |  Dec 09, 2008 at 04:43 PM

Poor dog!!! How would YOU like to run around like that. A BIG bad to whoever clipped this little guy. They should be shot at sunrise!!!!

 |  Dec 09, 2008 at 04:46 PM

Ashagato -- wow, that must've been before the screen-name conversion to NTMTOM. (and before either of us *worked* here)

 |  Dec 09, 2008 at 04:55 PM

@Wendy Run around like...what?

Are you saying the dog cares about it's appearance and will now have low-self esteem because it's a fashion nightmare?

Because I can totally see that. Uh-huh.

 |  Dec 09, 2008 at 04:57 PM

PS -- baby bobcat nap! No reason.

 |  Dec 09, 2008 at 05:02 PM

Why do his rear legs look so funny?

 |  Dec 09, 2008 at 05:15 PM

Nice, Teho!

 |  Dec 09, 2008 at 05:21 PM

Oh. Man. That's not even right, dude!

 |  Dec 09, 2008 at 05:29 PM

Winston would be so jealous....

 |  Dec 09, 2008 at 05:42 PM

Yeah, I am sure having a lion cut totally destroyed this dog's psyche and he's going to need years of therapy.

You people are ridiculous. If anything, the dog is probably soaking up the attention he is getting from his unusual haircut.

I assure you, dogs do not have any sense of fashion or style. Really.

 |  Dec 09, 2008 at 06:09 PM

Oh wow. That's just not right. Why, oh why????

 |  Dec 09, 2008 at 06:13 PM

"You people"????

 |  Dec 09, 2008 at 06:16 PM

Oh, the humanity...

Turn ons include long walks on the beach, drinking fine water from the toilet, and reading Proust.

 |  Dec 09, 2008 at 06:35 PM

Caninity, J. Bo! *Caninity*!

 |  Dec 09, 2008 at 06:51 PM

I'm with you, Kat. I'm a groomer and have shed endless inner tears over poms with beautiful coats whose owners want them shaved down. They grow back all stiff and prickly and gross. Leave the poms long, I say! (/nuff). That said, this guy looks pretty fierce.

 |  Dec 09, 2008 at 09:05 PM

Lots of dogs DO love getting haircuts and all the admiration and attention they get, like I'm sure this Pom did!
That said, there's a reason dogs have the coats they have, generally. It's not just insulation from cold, it's also insulation from heat. It's part of their temperature regulation system. It's interesting!
Yes, I remembered trapezoid head even without checking links. LOL.

 |  Dec 09, 2008 at 09:10 PM

oh that is just so wrong! that's the same as giving "lion cuts" to kitties. oh the poor pom, that is just so wrong. yeah i know i'm repeating myself but it is still just so wrong!

Aww! My mom just gave our older Pom the exact same cut because he's got rashes on his body and we need to put topical cream on it. He looks utterly ridiculous, but so adorable.

He probably appreciates the haircut, in all honesty-- we live in the tropics!

 |  Dec 09, 2008 at 10:22 PM

I suppose this finally answers the question of "How much of a Pommie *is* fur, anyway?"

Northern Tigress
 |  Dec 09, 2008 at 11:15 PM

Now that's just downright mean!

 |  Dec 10, 2008 at 03:06 AM

How about this- the owner gives away the pom and gets a real lion instead. Then they can give it a pom cut, or get eaten. Justice will be served, pun severely intended.
Stop messing with the dog's natural coat. Feh AND *sheesh* AND my stars and garters! Poor Pommeluh.

 |  Dec 10, 2008 at 03:46 AM

Wow I didn't think there'd be nuffing about THIS :(

Never know the circumstances of a photo you know....just my 2 cents :)

 |  Dec 10, 2008 at 05:15 AM

It's like a Pommy Q-Tip!

 |  Dec 10, 2008 at 05:35 AM

See soxfan's comment, June, a long coat works as "air conditioning", so to speak. Cutting it off will make the dog hotter.

And talking about a-wim-a-weh ...


I know, it's old, but it's still funny!

"I'm too sexy for my fur, too sexy for my fur, so sexy it hurts."

 |  Dec 10, 2008 at 05:46 AM

Awww, I want to touch him, he looks soft and velvety.

 |  Dec 10, 2008 at 06:07 AM

starling- that is wonderful! Thank you!

We had a miniature poodle whose sense of self was severely damaged when she got anything but a puppy utility clip- a very nice way to keep a poodle, imho. She had her dignity. Some people like to dye their hair purple, some don't dogs and cats are the same way--some are more adventurous, some not. Some dogs might like this, so I won't over generalize, but some dogs do, do, do care about their 'do'. Go, ahead, laugh, you just havent met one yet. I lived with one for 14 years.
