Aw she is adorable either way! I just LOVE Cey's growing hair, but he is only 5 months and hasn't start to blow his coat yet, so we'll see how I feel about this issue in a couple of months or so haha.

LOL, ya I loved Tillie's long coat too and am looking forward to growing it out, BUT there comes a point when 3 HOURS a day of grooming is just crazy!! LOL I thought I'd be able to hack it, but alas we ended up with a puppy cut. Blowing coat is NOT for sissies.

LOVE the short 'do!! I was all for the longer hair the first few years I had my doggies......then I did the shorter cuts and I just cant go back!! It gets SO hot here in the summer, I know they are much happier shorter. Plus they look so cute, and baths are a snap! With my bum shoulder it's the only thing that keeps me sane!

She is adorable both ways! And what a cute little tail.

I like both Hav styles. Miss Nala is happiest with a short cut because I think she feels very "done". (This is a dog whol loves hotels, elevators, airplanes and automatic opening doors)

Now i know how you feel, normally i've kept up with all 3 of ours, but having to work away for the past couple of weeks meant leaving the grooming to DH, who seems to think a quick brush over the top looks grand - until i got home and showed him the matts underneath. So on monday i took them to the groomers, pixie and jasper had to be shaved right down, i could've cried, i loved their long hair. Marley got away with a longer teddy bear cut but they've angled it quite harshly on the sides and i prefer a softer look. While they are short i am coaching hubby in how to groom properly, so we will see how it goes, at least they will be cool for summer.

The groomer told me to focus on the legs, more than the torso. I guess it's easier to work through knots/mats on the torso (which is probably the same reason that's mostly where I worked at them), and if the legs are alright they won't have to cut her as short.

I don't mind the short hair that much, although she looks like a totally different dog. If I had my choice, I would go with a little longer and messier like the black/white puppy in the banner at the top of the page. I know it'll grow out in a few weeks, too.

I think she looks cute! I know what you mean about the mats on the legs I thought it was Zoeys skin OMG It like happened over night it took me a long time to gently comb it out only to return the next day. Ive learned that its fuz from under causing the mats so I'm making sure I comb in lairs and get to the skin. I have stated in another trend I should save it and spin some yarn for a little hat

LOL, oh yes, the legs... and between the legs... fun, fun, FUN!
Tillie is growing out nicely and is starting to get tiny matts again... it was nice (to have her short) while it lasted!

Do you think they get mats and snarls on their legs because the morning dew on the grass?

Jack's legs gets completely soaked every morning. I never get to groom him until much later after he dried. Mornings with kids, dogs, cats, and hubby are crazy enough without adding trying to groom the dog.
