A Leprechaun Coiffure by Barb Thompson
(The dog, the trim, the picture and the article!)
ShannonShannon, aka Bangors Faux Paw CD CGC was entered in a creative grooming competition at the Sportsman's Show in Toronto Canada in 1996.
Dressed as a Leprechaun she was dyed with food colouring and green hair spray. A waistband-belt was cut in then blackened with chalk, she wore shiny black boots with big brass buckles, a St. Paddys hat, bow-tie and carried a large green pipe (she does not encourage Kerries to smoke) a little background music (an Irish jig) and her owner , Barb J Thompson, dressed to match.
Shannon came in second. She was quite humiliated to have lost to a bichon dressed as the Easter bunny. She almost looked cute enough to eat!!. (And Shannon tried.)
When she got home a good bath washed out the colour and a quick shave with a 7-blade lost the waist-band. Good thing warm weather was coming.
