New Nellie pics
 
Hi everyone, to celebrate Nellie's first visit to the groomer since her surgery, I thought I'd post some before and after pics.

Here she is looking very anxious AT the groomers;

And here are a few of her a couple of days later, fully stripped again! The flowers in the second picture are the ones my lovely hubby sent to my work for our anniversary yesterday. :)

The Gremlin's latest nickname, in recognition of her cute, soft-coated appearance, is "Puppa-pia-pupp-ia."

Oh Sue what a difference a bit of grooming does! She does lokk well behaved in these pics too! And the flowers she is checking to see if they are approved and she has approved them :) Thank you for posting them Sue!

In my mind I'm hearing the prevailing theme to Rosinni's Overture to The Barber of Seville..pup pup pup pia, pup pup pup pia. Hopefully we will not play this in my music group anytime soon or I will be laughing too hard to play!

Hmm, I immediately heard Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody :-) Nellie looks adorable in these pictures and it's great to see her feeling so well.

"Puppa-pia, puppa-pia, puppa-pia let me go, beelzebub has a devil of a sight for meeeeee....."

Gee thanks, I'll be singing that all night now.

She does look very dapper, despite her funny patch of curly and un-strippable coat across her surgery scar. Kelly the groomer says it could take two seasons to grow back through again.

One thing I do notice about her stance that makes me a little bit sad - is that she does look so weak through her quarters now. :( The groomer said she had quite good muscle tone in her hind legs considering her injury, but her back seems a bit rounded, and her hind legs are often wobbly. She tends to throw all her weight onto her front legs. hubby says that although she does race around at work, she is definitely slower - and its obvious at home that she doesn't have the strength she used to have.

Sigh. Ah well Nellie bell, my little puppa-pia bambina, you just live your grouchy little life as madly as you can until your damaged spine gives out for good.

We never worked out why she was so fascinated by the flowers!!

Love the pictures

Sue, Nellie will always be our little Gremlin... so she's a little slower now. Not a big deal. She is a little Patterdale with huge attitude. We love her!
