Gone are Zac’s debonair wolf-like looks and Bundy’s hippy locks. Coiffed and pampered returning with Christmas scarves. Zac asked for his to be removed immediately. Bad enough, he intimated, to be seen in public almost naked let alone wearing a Christmas scarf.

Zac has the short back and sides and for the first time his tail has been shaved. I only wanted a little off the tail but got the lot which has led to many people now not knowing what breed he is. He is, if you don’t already know, a German Shepherd, a proud dog who is really not too sure about wandering around in his underpants. Bundy didn’t quite get the short back and sides. I think the groomers thought it would be too much of a shock for us to clip off his long curly locks in entirety. What did amuse us was that they cut his left eyelashes to a shortish length while leaving the right long. Makes him look like a real odd ball.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. I followed this by doing a Master of Arts by research graduating in 2017. Now I live to write and write to live.

  1. I really had to laugh, as the pingback says “The boys in their underpants–reflections and nightmare”, two things that really sounded as though they went together. The poor dears!

    Had NO idea what to think what I would see when I read your post title in my email. Poor babies – shorn and in their underwear. I have to admit, our dog loves to come home from a bath. She trots around the house showing herself off!

    It looks as though they’ve both been given something to think about there… 🙂
