Willa, our vertically challenged Irish Wolfhound (thanks to a healthy dose of Old English Sheepdog), normally has long, thick, wiry hair.
Willa’s BEFORE coat – long, thick, and wiry
Getting ready for spring, we took her to the groomer and asked for a “puppy cut” (even though she’s almost 9), where typically only 1/2 to 1-inch of the coat remains.
Willa’s AFTER coat – sleek as a seal
A haircut is just one example of before and after, there are a multitude of others:
- Things I wish I’d known before ____ (fill in the blank)
- Weight loss/gain
- Manuscript editing
- Taking a stand for/against something
- The list goes on
Much like Willa’s haircut, many “afters” turn out spectacularly; some, not so much…
Are you pleased with your most recent “after?”
Do you remember Gladys Kravitz—the nosey neighbor who lived next door to Samantha and Darrin Stephens—on the television show Bewitched? She was always curious about what other people were up to:
Samantha Stephens: Oh, hi, Mrs. Kravitz. What a surprise (not!).
Gladys Kravitz: I came over for a snoop of, uh, a scoop of sugar. I hope I’m not disturbing you.
Our dog Willa—aka Mrs. Kravitz—is a snoop in the first degree. When our neighbors are in their back yard, she peeks through the fence!
Willa would do well to heed Hank Williams’ song, Mind Your Own Business!
I have more than a dash and a dollop of curiosity. When I was a young girl, my hero was Harriet the Spy.
Have you ever stuck your nose where it didn’t belong?
Listen with your heart,
“Whatever you are not changing, you are choosing.”
