Rufus' New Haircut

Some of you know that Rufus has had two anal gland abscesses now and the last time the vet tech shaved his entire hind end including a chop job on his tail to keep any hairs away from the area. His hair was 8 inches long and with all that coat it made it harder to see an abscess beginning so I decided to cut him down. Besides that with him in full coat it would have taken forever for the back end to match in.

Here is the lovely chop job. The next pic is before the cut. The last is the new haircut. It's still a little uneven so I'm sure I'll be doing some touch up work, but for now it's good enough. Thanks to all in the grooming thread who contributed information and pictures because it was very helpful!

LOL! Oliver and Comet look great! If I had a groomer I trusted to do my dogs as nice as your boys, I would be happy to drop them off. I tried a local groomer once, remember? They did all the things I said NOT to do and charged me 70.00 to boot!

Rufus is so cute Christy! I love his new "do" and if it makes it's easier to watch for any potential problems,then so be it,you know? He still is a very very handsome havanese!
