Knitting, Dogs and More: A Changed Man!

A Changed Man!

Okay, A changed Pup!

Sparky got his haircut and a bath on Friday. We have some trimmers but really don't know how to use them. Our previous attempts have taken hours and either yielded not very noticeable results or a choppy haircut for our pup. I found a groomer that doesn't charge an arm and a leg, they just needed a little convincing to do it for me. They asked, "Have you done it before? The hair might grow out differently" and "What if you don't like it?" Now he looks like a giant lab puppy. His feet are trimmed but not really close so they look bigger for his body like a puppies. Sure I miss the looks of his long hair but he's so cute and I'm sure it must feel better. The amazing thing is we've still had to vacuum every day, doesn't stop the constant shedding but at least it's clean and not quite as long. We are supposed to get another heat wave and keeping up with the mats behind his ears won't be an issue. I bet his skin is a lot less irritated. It will probably be a good comfy length when the cold part of our winter hits.

What a change! We have a golden retriever that really needs to be groomed, but she freaks out. So she's our shaggy baby.

What a difference! I haven't tried using clippers on Chappy (the noise is too similar to the nail grinders which he hates), and just use scissors to trim him "around the edges" when he starts looking too shaggy. Besides, you KNOW I love his curls! Sparky looks just adorable, though.

Oh my, he looks like a totally different dog, but I am sure he feels much more comfortable in this heat. He is adorable.
