The last time we were at the vet, Q was a little over 14 pounds. He's not fat, he's just husky LOL. He really isn't fat and doesn't overeat, that's just how he is. He does look a little smaller when he's wet, though. Here's a pic from after his bath yesterday. Oh, and he's tall too. The breeder we got him from told me the other day that his sister is only about 10 or 11 pounds and is "short."

Ted is short or shall I say vertically challenged. He will be weighed tomorrow when I bring him for a groom. Fingers crossed it goes well cause the leg hair is going to have to be short but I want all of his body and head hair intact. Most of the matting is on the legs anyhow. I worked on him today and got out the couple mats he had at his tail and collar

OScar was groomed the other day too (I will post pics later). His legs were really matted, so I had her do 1 inch on the body and legs and kept the beard and moustache and the tail long. Is this the start of blowing coat? Even after getting groomed, he already had mats on his legs again by that night!
Dory- Q and Oscar look a lot alike! Oscar is like a mini-Q, he has the eyebrows and the white muzzle too. He also has white line down the middle of his head though.

Q has been getting matted behind his ears and under his front "armpits" lately. This is new, so I'm assuming his adult coat is starting to come in. I don't keep him in a sweater, coat, collar, harness or anything inside the house. Just put his collar on when he goes out - sometimes his coat if he doesn't give me too much of a fit about it. I brushed Q out good yesterday and gave him his bath. Used extra conditioner which helps a little, but still having to use the corn starch under his armpits. Of course, the one place he hates for me to brush or work on would be the place he's matting the worst. Oy vey!

Q has white underneath and behind his legs/under his tail. Just like a little skunk lol. He actually has some tan in his muzzle - he's considered a tricolor.

Ted is not too bad under the pits but I will get that cut too. It doesn't show and I want to make him comfortable while he blows this coat!

Groomer just texted and said she won't have to cut his legs too short...yay! I'm excited to see him. I had already told her not to cut his torso or face before I left him.
