Update: Charley Brown

Just wanted to share this awesome photo my fiance got of Charley this morning right after I left for work.

I guess I could give a little update on how my big boy is doing.
We just recently added a new food to his diet. He LOVES it. It's called Force from the makers The Human Kicthen. It's basically dehydrated human food. It smells HORRIBLE but it's supposed to be super good for the dog & he LOVES it. Goes crazy for it at meal time!

I had to shave him Which makes me incredibly sad. I LOVED his long coat. But with him blowing coat, I found myself brushing him multiple times a day and STILL not being able to keep up with the fast growing mats. So, I didnt want to continue to stress him out with all the brushing and the mats ended up too close to the skin to truly get them out. So he is a nakey boy now. haha But I actually LOVE the look now that it's been a couple days. I will grow him back out over time though.

That's about it for him! :-) Hope everyone is well & enjoy his cute little face!

Your fiance's exceptional eye for composition . . .coupled with Charley's adorable face, makes for a very nice portrait indeed. I'll be curious to see how long it takes him to regrow his coat as I'm leaving that idea on the table should Isabella's coat blowing event get the best of me

Charley & I were doing SOOO well in the begining of the blowing coat process. I bought detangler, special mat conditioner & those all helped (for a while). And then out of no where it just got completely unmanagable. haha. I felt bad for the little guy!

So, I'll keep you posted on hair regrowth haha

I got Brody cut quite short right around Halloween. He's at a length now I really love, all fluffy and bushy and his bangs are in his face again, but I am probably going to go soon and get him cut down again. To me, the battle of the mats just isn't worth the stress of it all (for me and him). ha ha I so lack patience!

What a BEAUTIFUL photo!!! There are a number of people who, even if they have wanted their Hav in long coat eventually, have chosen to cut them down during their coat-blowing... hair grows! I'm sure he'd be adorable, long OR short!!!

He is a cutie pie. Don't worry about the hair because they look good anyway you have it.

awwww, ADORABLE!! I too, chose to cut Tillie DOWN... my son said she looked like a bobble head! LOL the 3+ hours of de-matting was messing with our relationship, as in, when she would see me coming she would HIDE! LOL I had her shaved down in March of last year and you can see her in my avatar (to the left of my post) this was about 10 months of growth. So, it DOES grow and MUCH faster than we would think!
