Kisses for Schultz

The other day, my daughter had one of her friends over, and as usual, they had a makeover session.  Let me just say, that whenever a makeover session happens, the end result is far less pleasing than the original look.  This one was no exception.

When the girls came downstairs to show me their new looks, I hardly recognized them.  Foundation, about four shades too dark was smeared all over their faces.  Black eye shadow encircled their eyes.  And they were wearing bright red lipstick, which clearly was applied way outside of the lip line.  They looked hideous.

"Do you like our look?" they asked.

I made a face.  "Uh.  Not really.  Do you?"

"It's awesome!"

At that time, our giant German Shepherd, Schultz, meandered into the room.  He looked at the girls and cocked his head.  I don't think he knew what to make of the strange creatures standing in front of him.

"Hi, Schultzy!" my daughter said.  She walked up to the furry beast and planted about ten kisses on his forehead.  I knew this wasn't going to be pretty.  Sure enough, when she walked away, there were red splotches all over the poor dog's head.

"Nice job," I said.  "Now you get to wash all the kisses off.  Because I won't let Schultz be humiliated in public looking like that!"

My daughter objected. "But he needed a makeover, too!"

Right.  Next thing, she'll be putting a cute pink bow on his big, bushy tail!

  2. Bad enough he sniffs other dogs' butts, but that?

    1. He'd probably get scared if he looked in a mirror, though!

  4. Not to mention she now has fur stuck to her lips.

  7. I remember piling on the makeup as a kid. It was always indoors. I wasn't allowed to step out like that.

    Schulz must have loved all the attention.

    1. You wouldn't believe the attention that dog gets from her. It's ridiculous!

  8. Oops, not the best day for Schultz. Maybe it's karma for his past indiscretions. D

  9. Yes, I remember that your dog (like mine that just ate the last of my very favorite Christmas cookies) has pulled some doozies so he might have had it coming.
    What a great Mom to let the girls have harmless fun, even if it is a bit messy!

  10. That made me laugh. Poor Schultz will be laughed at by his doggy friends. :P

    1. We have a neighbor who has a poodle. This poodle has changing tail and ear colors every week. Sometimes it's shocking pink. Other times it's neon orange, or even green. Now that is something for doggy friends to laugh at! (There will be no doggy dying at my pad!)

  11. I'm impressed that you told them the truth there. I know so many mothers who lie to their kids to spare their feelings.

  13. I used to do the same thing when I was little. I thought I looked gorgeous with eye shadow on my cheeks and large amounts of blush all over my face. The pictures are funny now!

    Wishing you a Happy New Year!

    1. It's funny to see how strange they can make themselves.

  14. I'm dreading the makeover stage with my girls. I have a little time left, I hope. Shultz definitely doesn't need one though!

    1. It was rather comical to see all the lipstick kisses all over him, though.

  15. Poor Schultz! At least the girls didn't try to give him a full makeover, lol. Happy New Year!
