Remember those commercials for the hair coloring for men? Well Santa wanted to try out a new look for Mrs. Clause. What do you think? I think he looks very handsome and kinda lumber-jack-ish. I should dedicate this card to my BFF Tracy's hubby Steve, cause he does logging (before he hurt his arm).
Today Toby got groomed and we did the puppy cut thing, his fu-manchu look was getting pretty long and I think he was sick of it getting in his mouth and eyes, so I looked up a few pictures on line and also my friend Martha Beck's sweet little dog and they did a combination of the two cuts. He looks so adorable, and he still hates to get his picture taken, I really wish I knew why, cause he didn't when he was younger. So after a couple tries this is as good as we could get.
Cute eh? But look at that sad look, cause he is usually such a happy face, but not around the camera.

I love Toby's new hair cut. He looks so manly, kind of like the lumberjack Santa. The lumberjack Santa is just darling. I could see where you could send this to a guy. Have a great hump day.
