Not yet groomed, just some hair cut away from his face.
Real bath and groom comes as soon as sutures heal...
I'll get more pics then. This one 
his Mom sent over to me last night.

Smudge has melded into the family dynamic 
quite well I am told and is loved and happy.

I've been under the weather a bit with a
really bad cough and cold.
Hope to be functioning up to speed next week.
Enjoy your lovely fall weekends.
We're warming up again in the 90's....sigh

Houdini-Smudge looks adorable and quite different. I think of him as Houdini too. How lucky this little dog is !!!!I wish his new family and him many wonderful moments.
I just wanted you to know too, that I am happy that you like my crow-dressform. I like funky things at times and she makes me laugh every year I do her up. Did not do all the Halloween things this year either, but my grandkids will be Davie says every year "cool, Omi!"
Lots of hugs and feel better soon. I hate colds!!!
Lots of love, Evi

An incredible transformation already!! Wow...he looks so content! Lucky, lucky puppy - so glad he has found home. Hope you get to feeling better Z....Seems so early for the cold and flu stuff to be going 'round, but sounds like it is. I so dread because it usually morphs straight into a sinus infection and/or worse for me. Take care....Smiles ~ Robin (No hugs today - don't wanna catch what you have! ;o))

Oh Z,
I'm so sorry that you're not feeling so good. I hope that you will be feeling a lot beter tomorrow.
There is a black spaniel who lives in the pub that I go in and his name is Smudge !! Your Smudge is so cute.
Sending healing vibes from the UK and I hope that you will be on the road to recover very soon. XXXX

Romeo said...

Oh that Smudge! He's so lucky to have you in finding his forever home!!! Surely, you earned your wings by now :)

Sorry to hear that you are under the weather. I agree with Cindy - you really do need to slow down and relax some....

Hot here today 83 - not as bad as the 90's but still better than the 100+ we were having.

Will be catching up with you after the show. Romeo sends you purrs and a good snuggle to the "children".
