In case you guys aren't familiar with The Today Show's 'Ambush Makeovers', you can get up to speed here (although really no need, just giving alittle pointless background for the blog).
I headed out onto the 'Plaza' (aka - the Driveway) this morning to get my 'ambush makeover' candidate (aka Victim). This was who I selected.
Cricket is an approximately 5 year old Great Pyrenees cross. She works in the 'security industry' and admits she hasn't had a haircut in a year and a half.
It is important to Cricket that she has an easy to maintain look - she works long hours and many night shifts - and she was insistent that she not be made to look too 'girlie' as being tough is important to her career.
Our stylist knew just the look to go for and set about the task with glee (aka extreme trepidation).
Once again, let's look at Cricket BEFORE -
And now here is Cricket AFTER
Oh Cricket, it has taken 20lbs and 2 years off you!! You look .....ummmm...FABULOUS!!!! Yes, really!!
Cricket loves her new look. She says it is likely to keep shrubs and small trees from getting caught in her leggings and will allow her to better accomplish her job.
Our thanks to our stylist from Spruce Valley Pets for her expertise (aka bravery).
Last I saw Cricket, she was heading off down the trail to see what the Siberians were kicking up such a big fuss about....
.....I haven't the heart to tell her they think she is a strange dog in the yard!!!
