New Streamlined Oliver

Ok, it just killed me to do it, but Oliver's hair was so damaged from struggling with blowing coat that we were having hour long comb out sessions every day. He hated it and so did I. We're going on vacation to St John next week and no way is the petsitter going to be able to keep up with it anyway so I took the plunge and had him cut. Here are his before pictures:

I asked her to leave him about an inch long and not to do a poodle face. When I went to pick him up, I cringed a bit because his face is rather poodle-ey and his hair is about a half inch long. At least she left the tail as I requested. However, Andrew loved the new look instantly and that really surprised me. (he usually hates change) I'm loving that Ollie seems happy and I can cuddle him without worrying about creating mats. I also love that I can see his eyes, so I guess I can honestly say it's growing on me. I can't get over how LITTLE he looks!

Ok...so here's the new streamlined Oliver:







He doesn't look all that much bigger than Ruby now!

Ruby's response to Oliver when I got home was unbelievable. She SCREAMED and attacked him. She kept going after him and bursting into excited screeches for at least an hour. She's so weird. Poor Oliver...how would you like to be greeted with screams when you walked in the door with a new haircut? It's so bizarre. She is fine with it today.

He looks adorable and I'll bet he is much more comfortable now, too.

Oh so cute!!! Oliver looks like the "how much is that doggy in the window?" puppy that I see in my head every time I hear that song...

He just has THE cutest face!
He looks really great with his new haircut. Your groomer did an excellent job.
