Even though the Dyson has changed the way we clean, we still fight The Dog Hair every gosh darn day. It is everywhere, always and forever. As spring is here and flowers are blooming, we decided it was time to take a step in the fight and cut the dog’s hair. We had it cut last April but hadn’t had them groomed since. Yes, we still bathed them and clipped their nails but we just let their hair get WILD!!
I talked to a lady at the AWC and she gets her dogs groomed for 38 pounds each and thinks that is about average. I don’t even pay that for my own hair so I sure as heck don’t plan on doing it for the pups; plus when you add in trying to schlep them across London just to get an over priced haircut? Not worth it. So I asked Mike why we just didn’t do it ourselves. They are dogs and it is just hair that will grow back no matter what we do to it. We bought a set of clippers and went to town. (Mike did most of the work because I get all upset when the pups squirm and try to get away.) We didn’t do too bad but we had several dog sized piles of hair to get up!
Dog purists should look away from the following pictures. I believe that if you aren’t showing a dog then you can cut the hair/fur any way that you please. We told the breeder that we bought Kricket from that we cut Hannahbelle’s hair short in the summer and she almost had a stroke.
I think that they look adorable! It sure is short, (and they also don’t like posing for the camera and end up with devil eyes in pictures.) Oh, and pardon The Laundry.
Their sweet little faces make it look like they are puppies again! Happy Spring Everyone!
