Sorry Jillee

Ok guys I am going to take Jillee to the groomers today. I am really embarassed because she has alot of mattes and I can not get them....hubby and I worked on her for a couple of days. I think we may have to shave her down. I feel soo bad but something has to be done. I think since Betzie has been home it is harder to keep her matte free. They love to play together and I want them to continue too. I hope it turns out good. She had mattes before Betzie came home but she has more and more mattes all the time now..plus she will be one next week. I will post some pictures if it is not too bad!!!

Fingers crossed, Megan! Jillie will probably feel lots better with her new do...she'll still be cute no matter what. I'll be sending thoughts for a good outcome today! Looking forward to pictures!

Megan, the good news it is grows back. I had to have Brady shaved right before his first birthday. He was late with his grooming and had stayed at the breeders for a week where he played with all the other dogs and even jumped into her pond. Needless to say, he was a mess. I did't think it was fair to have the groomer spend hours torturing him to get the matts out, so she shaved him down. Not to the skin, but pretty far down. After a few weeks, it got back to a short puppy cut and he started to look like himself again. If you promise not to laugh, I will find a picture. I figure it is all about him and his comfort, and he didn't know the difference except I am sure it felt a lot better.

I hope so too. Ollie is getting so many matts lately too (he's 8 months so I'm thinking he's probably blowing coat) that I'm worried I may have to do the same thing. I'm spending about an hour a day and still not keeping up with them. His hair is just growing back from the allergies so I'm hating the thought of cutting it again! I can empathize with you for sure! Maybe they won't have to take too much off.

Cazzie had a few mats this winter and we went to a new groomer while in Florida. She shaved him down like a shorn lamb! But left his head fluffy. He looked like one of those bobble head toys. Everyone laughed at him and he was definitely humiliated. So try not to laugh or act too distressed!

This was in February and it's grown out decently now. He is going back to another groomer on Wed. to try to get that big head back in shape.

Riley is so happy his half sister is getting her hair cut before him. Jillee is going to look adorable Megan, don't worry.

I sure know the havoc the coats take when they get chewed on. We'll hope for the best for Jillee, but I am sure she will be adorable no matter what kind of hair cut she gets. Some ladies--Jillee included--have the perfect face and can wear any hair do.
