I Clean Up Nice

So the other day Mom cleaned my ears, brushed me, filed my nails, brushed my teeth, wiped my eyes (they get really watery in the winter) and gave me another bath!! That's like the second one this month! She said something about being clean for company and the holidays, but company and the holidays should love me as I am, smelling of nature! As you can see, it was embarresing. But the brush was nice.
Reluctantly Clean Kisses and Tail Wags,

Watery eyes, but why isn't kitty sister getting a bath

Brush bliss

Neck scratches!!

Smooth and shiny. And NAKED MOM! I have a blog you know, this kind of stuff isn't fit for young pups eyes! "Nola, when has that ever stopped you?''

Clean teeth


  1. Now all you need is your pretty new dress and you will be all set for the holiday.

    We really love those markings on your face, Nola - very nice.

    Hope Boston is doing well.

  2. Neck scratches almost make up for a B-A-T-H. I got one before Thanksgiving, so Mom said I was good for Christmas. I hope you and your pack have a great Christmas!

  3. what a good, clean girl you are, nola!! all this company will be so impressed with how beautiful you look :) ps - your teeth are REALLY nice and white! i hope you have a wonderful christmas with your family!

  4. Oh my... Nola your furs look as shiny as your teefs do. Maybe these Baffs aren't so ba.... WAIT.. Never mind what I almost Accidentally said. WHEW... this Christmas stuffs must be gettin to us.

  5. OMD you really is clean, you is so clean I thinks you is squeaky clean!

    Happy Holidays!

    woos, Tessa

  6. Goodness Nola! Not more nakedness of you again... What is your Mommy thinking these days. Don't she know that little boy d-o-g-g-i-e-s read your blog too? You tell her she's got some explaining to do...

    I heard that word "bath" floating around here recently too. I've not had one in a long, long time because of my surgery. But Mommy said it's getting real close to that time again ~ Yuck! I love to swim and play in the water, but I don't like the bath.

    Your pearly white teeth look beautiful! How does your Mommy keep them so clean? Does she make you wear those Crest Whitestrips? Tee-hee-hee.

    I hate to tell you this, but me's fell asleep last night and just totally missed the toothie fairy that was coming to see Daddy. Shucks! I was so hoping to catch her in the act. Daddy is still sleeping so I can't peak under his pillow just yet. He'll be up soon 'cause he has to go to work today. He is very thankful because he only has 4 more working days left before he retires. Yeah for Daddy!

    Mommy's going to make her coffee now. Then she's got a lot to do today she said. Today she is making a Grasshopper Pie for Daddy's retirement party next week. I don't like the idea of Grasshoppers in my pie!

    I don't want to forget so I will wish you and yours a VERY merry Christmas. May all your Christmas dreams come true!

    Hugs, Lily Belle

  7. You look squeaky clean....of course, why you'd want to squeak is beyond us. Humans have some strange ideas, don't they.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  8. Mom has been talking about giving us baths too... and now that we think about it, our kitty brothers and sister never have to get a bath - what's up with that!

    Pugs & Kisses,

    Yoda, Brutus & Ellie

  9. Hey Nola!
    Wow, you look wonderful! Love the shiny fur and pearly teeth. If it gets us pressies, it's worth it! After the holidays, we can all start working on getting filthy and stinky all over again! FUN!

    Now all you need is a pretty bow to match with your nakedness. Personally, I love naked dogs because they do look like nature.
