What have you done to my dog? And a good Valpol

Rosie went to the dog groomers yesterday. 2 hours and 36 later she came out. But with some bizarre 80s haircut. She now looks really stupid. Maybe we will get used to it. Above is a before and after shot.

Very nice Valpolicella this lunch time - chilled lightly, it's a delicate, beguiling red. Shame it's not a few quid cheaper, which would bring it into everyday drinking territory, but it's a perfect wine for summer.

Guerrieri Rizzardi Valpolicella Classico 2008 Italy
A blend of Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara and Merlot. Lovely elegant, fresh, sappy sweet cherry fruit is the theme here: it's light but has nice presence to it, with some sweetness to the fruit and also an attractive spicy, minerally bite. This is really alive, with some elegance and complexity - it's just so natural-tasting and joyful. 12% alcohol. 90/100 (12.99 Longford Wines)

I have to agree. The rasta dreads were much better. I wonder if anyone at the doggy salon reads your blog?

Poor Rosie's head looks like a very large Dandy Dinmont Terrier now. Fortunately it will grow back.

Jamie - I remember us discussing haircuts at length last wednesday - do you go to the same hairdressers as Rosie??

I think RTL probably appreciated the new 'do' with all the heat you have been having.

Are you looking for another set of offspring?
