Red face take away my scissors!!!!

ohhh my poor Jasper. I was just trying to even out behind his ears after he was groomed (they had to shave off a matt right behind his ear) and one snip lead to another--- and before I knew it he looked like he had been in a cat fight. SO back to the groomers we go (tail between MY legs) and they had to take his coat down to an inch. And he was just beginning to look like a full coated adult Hav. back to the puppy cut...

Oh. I know how you feel. I cannot use the scissors anymore. I wasn't allowed after an incident. I actually cut the hair on my old dog and accidently cut her. I had to take her to the vet for stitches. Did I feel horrible..... I thought the vet was going to take her away from me for being a bad Mom but from all my tears she knew I was very upset.

So now you know why my human guys won't let me cut their hair.

Good thing about hair is it grows back. You live and learn.

I think Jasper looks handsome. Kodi had to be shaved down in June and I am letting it grow a little longer. I trim his feet and around his eyes and he is really pretty good about me grooming him. However, Shelby, the ew puppy, is a little monster. She growls and won't sit still, so we are taking it slow with her.

Oh no! Very true hair grows back. Reminds me when I cut my own bangs once, one cut led to another and then MY OH MY.

My hairdresser has a sign on her station saying she cuts bangs for free, PLEASE dont attempt yourself. NOT that it relates to dogs, but same scenario.

Im sure he is cute as ever. My Goldie is pretty short now also, she had a mat or two.

I can relate, I am so bad with the scissors that I wouldn't consider trimming anyone (my kids or my pets). But, my 13 year old daugher is an old pro with the scissors. She is so good with them that she will not allow any hairdresser to touch her bangs (not in the last few years). She trims Bugsy around the eyes and feet. She just has a real light touch.

take away my scissors AGAIN!!!!!

Yesterday, I had the boys groomed, a little shorter because of summer. They came home looking absolutely adorable. But Jasper's jowls were a bit to long along with his ears... Only I can do their faces to my liking. So I finish Jasper and he looks just how I want him.

And then I decide I need to do a bit on Cash too-- He as really thick ears so I like to thing the underside a little-- all that goes well--- and then I decided I am going to sculpt his little front legs up by the armpits a little to make them look longer... This goes perfectly. But then I think I can trim his belly fur a little to make him look even taller... well Cash wouldn't roll over so I am doing this as he stands. OMG- when I roll him over he has spots on him that look like a shaved spots--- Oh I am just waiting for DH to yell at me-- when he rolls over for a belly rub-- and he sees it. Quick how do I teach Cash not sleep on his back for a few weeks?




Missy, Jasper & Cash

Ahh, how about some black makeup to put on the skin to hide the "holes"?

Or, isn't it time for Cash to start wearing some clothing?

great ideas. What do you think Jane--A little t-shirt to show off his manly pects? Do they lie in their bellies on the cool mats Kimberly? I think I am safe until tonight... maybe I will just have to keep him playing until we go to bed-- and then put him right in the crate-- no bed time-- hmmm, I may have to fake a headache. Cash looks really great from the side though!!!

Definitely something manly for Cash!

And, hair tonic to help his belly hair to grow back quickly!!

Maybe you can hold Cash in your arms everytime DH is around!
