in Cool stuff, DIY, Harry


I am thrilled to be able to offer my readers an exclusive giveaway here at Scarlet Words – a small dog!  It’s just a small gesture to thank you all for your comments and encouragement over the years.



Harry has spent the past few months growing enough extra fur for one (1) extra small dog.  Your prize will include all of the accessories you will need for your new pet: two eyes, one button nose, and a collar.

Some DIY experience is desirable.


  • Obeys simple commands, such as stay! and be quiet!
  • Requires no food or water
  • Completely housetrained
  • Enjoys daily walks, but prefers to be carried
  • Will not chew your shoes or bite small children.


  • Drink a large glass of water while doing a handstand, and film it.  First entry wins.


(For sentimental reasons I have decided to keep the dog on the right.)

ROFL! If I do a headstand while drinking a glass of wine, can I get the dog on the right? 😀

He’s such a cutie though…but boy do pets shed or what?!

Actually, we’re lucky – this is a result of a haircut, not shedding! This breed doesn’t shed seasonally like other dogs, so as long as we brush him once a week he doesn’t leave any hair around the place.

I will give your offer serious consideration. Mostly because I’d really like to see at least one attempt at this headstand challenge 😉

Harry, you are so damn cute!

His “before” shot wasn’t quite so cute!

Rah! March 12, 2013 at 2:24 pm

I read your blog post then found this on Facebook straight after.

Although I don’t know if Harry felt the same way… 🙂 I know our dog would get quite excited after his haircut.

Cara, I have no idea how I missed your comment! That photo is absolutely hilarious and I’m attaching it to this comment so that everyone can see it.

You’re right about Harry, by the way. He LOVES his haircuts, but he’s not too thrilled about the actual process of sitting still and being poked.

I have a Harry but he is a she and her name is Missy. They look almost exactly alike but when I use the clippers on Missy I think I get more hair so maybe Missy is bigger. She sure likes to eat. Did I read somewhere that harry is about 12 or am I making that up? I ask because Missy will be 16 on March 23 and is still going strong regardless of a few minor heath issues.
Anyway, I can’t get over how identical they are. I feel like I am looking at my Missy on your blog and it feels creepy a bit. Even the pile of hair looks the same when I am done.
Well, great post it was almost as cute as the dog you decided to keep! 🙂
Harry, take good care of your person now! Bye! High Paws.
