Our dog gets really puffy … well, maybe not puffy, but kind of… shaggy. And thick-furred. And if it’s warm out, she gets HOT. And then little bits of dirt get trapped in her fur.
We bust out the clippers and give her an all-over haircut. Nothing fancy.. No fading or different lengths anywhere. Just zoom all over her. Doesn’t she look amused?
And then we give her a bath. And she’s SO clean and good-smelling and silky-feeling that I can’t keep my hands off her for at least a week. It’s like petting velvet. And she’s much more comfy in the sun, too.
