What a spring I have had. During the winter my fur developed matts. I did this a couple of years ago and Mom just clipped the matts. This year it was really bad, at least that is what Mom says.
She decided to clip my fur off. How humiliating!! I looked like a drowned rat. Donald and Dad laughed at me and I do believe I saw the guys giggle a time or two.
Mom and Mary Beth said I felt like velvet. That my fur was so soft and I have been getting a lot of petting. Cannot complain about that. It took Mom almost 2 weeks, to finally clip all of the fur that she was cutting. Why did it take so long? I would allow her so much time, then that was it. So she would clip and clip and then I would give her the signal that I was done and she would finish for the day. There were a few days that she did not have time to clip.
It may not be as neat as a groomer's, but I did not have to take a drive and to be honest, we are not sure where Mom would have to take us to be groomed. When you live in a rural area, those things are few and far between. Mom will hear about a groomer opening business, then after a short time, it is no longer there.
Well my fur is coming back in, I now look black again, no more gray or even blue at times. Mom told me that I would appreciate the short fur when the heat comes; then we ended up with cooler temps than usual!! MOL
Take it easy.
