The time had come, no excuses

Roxy’s hair was getting too long

A table outside in the garden

Was used for our doggy salon!

The clippers pressed into service

Parted Roxy with some of her hair

She was beginning to look rather tufty

Although, she seemed not to care!

Grump and I had her cornered

And given that she looked so forlorn

The job was rather successful

Now her hair’s decorating our lawn!

As if that wasn’t enough stress

It was then time to get in the bath

I left that job to the Grumpster

He’d have to deal with her wrath!

Finally after a good shake off

She settled herself down for a sleep

All this primping and preening is too much

Getting shorn like she was a sheep!
