Horrifically Scandulous!

I am not sure I can even WRITE this post. I have to admit, the shock of it all has left me a bit shaken.

You know my litter-mate, Gabby, the prissy Prima Donna one? Well, I hadn't heard from her in a few days. I didn't think anything of it. She gets on her high horse sometimes and won't write or call. You say the least little thing and she gets her feelings all hurt. I never did understand how she could be so NEEDY.

Anyway, like I said, I hadn't heard from her in a while, but I didn't think anything of it. Well, TODAY, Gabby finally called. I could not believe my ears. I don't know if I should even write about it here or not...but, maybe writing about it will help me process it...

Gabby went under the knife. She didn't even see it coming. One moment she is curled up lovingly around her Spokespeople's feet and the next moment they are driving her to some shady office out in Ten Buck Two and dumping her there. She didn't think it was such a bad place at first, but when she woke up, she found out they had SHAVED her belly. SHAVED IT! All her lovely luxurious fur that she has always been so vain over is GONE...utterly GONE...well, at least on her belly, that is. She said she didn't know what kind of slipshod clippers they had used, but they must have been pretty lousy, because they evidently got some of her skin along with her lovely fur. When she woke up, she had STITCHES in a long line up her belly. Can you believe it? I mean, I've heard of a nick here and there when a dog gets clipped, but THAT is ridiculous. The whole thing is just extremely suspicious...I mean, 1) who in their right mind EVER clips a GERMAN SHEPHERD, anyway? One of our greatest points is our utter lack of need for haircuts. We hardly require any grooming at befits any serious working dog like ourselves! and 2) how weird is it that she SLEPT through the hair cut? She didn't even know she was being shaved when it happened. She just woke up feeling an ominously cold draft on her poor newly bare belly!

Poor dear. She is totally humiliated. I don't know if she will ever be able to live this one down. She told me she is going to live a life of seclusion until her fur grows back. Who can blame her? She is practically NAKED. I just can't believe her spokepeople would do something that irresponsible!

I bet they took things from her too!

PeeEssWoo: I hope she rests up and gets over this 'procedure' thing!

Well, Spring is just around the corner, maybe she had a little lipo and a bikini wax to get ready for swimsuit season and they took things a bit too far.

Geez, what a crummy thing to happen on Valentine's Day -- or was it Friday the 13th? Does she need a pair of my rabbit feet slippers?

Your pal,

Hello Ransom
It is furry nice to meet you.
I agree with Khyra. I woke up like that once and I wasn't the same for a couple of years. Silly hooman healers lefts something inside of me. They took something and then left something! I didn't want what they left. Anyways, thats bringing up bad memorwees.
Big licks to you

My Dearest Sister, I am in such a weak state that my spokesperson is having to write this for me. Thank you for your concern for me...let what happened to me be a warning to you Sis. I mean I should have seen it coming when we drove up to that shady looking office..there were several people admiring how pretty I was...I know I am beautiful, but sometimes I just get sick of continually hearing it all the time. I did not appreciate your snyde remark about that I am vain about my have always been so jealous that you can't see straight! I have always tried to encourage you in what very small skills you is not my fault that I have always out-shined you.
After my spokesperson picked me up from the near death experience place they tried to butter me up with some ice cream from Dairy Queen...very suspcious if you ask me. The ONLY reason I ate it was because I was so starved for so long...I was very leary of the two small bones on they really think I am that stupid...I don't know what is in those things... Don't let them do it to you Sis....stay alert stay alive! This is what is really creeping me out...I heard people in the back ground saying it was SUCH a shame that a beautiful dog like me would never be able to have pups.....WHAT??? is that supposed to mean??? They did something to me....DON'T LET THEM DO IT TO YOU!!! YOU MUST CARRY ON THE FAMLIY NAME!!! I must go for now...I must keep my strength up.

Ransom said...

Oh, dear sweet sister...I am still so utterly appalled that I can't quit trembling just thinking about your near death experience. Who would have seen it coming? And at such a tender age. I am so glad you are hanging in there and fighting your way back. I'll come visit you as soon as I can sneak the car keys away from the Spokespeople here.

Ransom said...

(And of course I will do my best to carry on the family name. I'll name every pup after you, sweet sister of mine!!!)

Ransom said...

Khyra--I suspect you hit the nail on the head. Gives me the heeby jeevies just thinkin' about it.

Petey--I LIKE your theory! But, after talking to my sis, I don't think that was quite what went down! And it WAS on Friday the 13th...figures!

Maverick--HARRR! I agree!!!

Suzuki--I hope nothing extra got left behind in my sis. What a horrible thing to have happen! I'm glad you are finally okay now!
