take away my scissors--the sequal !!!!

Ohhh, Noooo....

So, my new little boy Cash's coat was so long- we couldn;t see him squat to go potty to either praise or correct while he was in the moment. SO silly me took out the scissors, becasue I didn't want to traumatize him with a groomer.

Well the poor little boy looks like something the Cat dragged in (and we don't have a cat) my husband assured me it will grow and then he will be old enough for a real grooming. But my sweet little boy looks a little hacked up up. But it has helped us to anticipate his moves more. (and as silly as he looks he looks less like a skunk.

Thanks again everyone for being so supportive over my new puppy meltdown.

Things are much better every day.

Missy, Jasper, and Cash.

Hi Missy,

So glad to hear that you are all doing better. Don't worry about the haircut, it's only hair and it will grow back. Just don't try to do your hair.

How funny!! I took Logan to the groomer so he could watch Lily & Lexi. I have a great groomer who only does small dogs and only does one dog at a time (except with siblings) . So my guys are not around 150 lb dogs while they are being groomed & it is a little less stressful. When I took him I just asked her to trim around his eyes (as we couldnt see them) and around his bumm a little. She did a nice job & did not charge me. Maybe you could do the same & take Cash when jasper goes.

Missy,
Just be careful never to cut the little hair streaming down from his pee-pee.I read that acts like a little "streamer"and the urine runs down that.With that gone,he will pee on the hair on his tummy.

As silly as it sounds, thats the one sure way I could tell if Cooper had actually peed or not! I just held him up to see if he had a little drip hanging on. Ohhh boy...literally!

Uh-oh! I had to cut that piece of hair off It was all matted and a big mess, so I snipped. It grows back though and it seems to be much better, no matting.

I love this forum. Where else could you find out about cutting the fur on the pee-pee? I have to admit I have trimmed Jasper's.

Beverly and Lauri.......
I also checked that to see if he had an accident!How Funny! As crazy as it sounds,when you are housebreaking,you need all the tricks you can get!Sometimes my little boy will spill something,and my husband thought it was the pup.......one sure way to tell.....lift him up and check those hairs!
I also like this forum alot Missy .....the one place you feel like you can ask and not be afraid if it's silly,or get a silly sounding answer-like mine was (but true,none the less)
