It was time!

After cutting Kodi too short the last time I did him, it has been a LOOOONG time since I've done anything major to him. Pixel's groomer was kind enough to straighten out what she could for me, but mostly I just had to wait for his butchered back legs to grow out long enough to try again.

Well, I've trimmed his face a couple of times and ahis body was getting so long he was looking like a snowball... or so long that people were asking whether I was growing him out again. Pixel's groomer had also been giving me tips on how to get a longer puppy cut using the VERY LONGEST comb and using the clippers. So... We did it today. Actually, I got to practice twice, because my friend Elinor was here. She recently had shoulder surgery, and her lovely Poppy (mother or Molly, Tom King's girl whose puppies you've been watching grow up!) was badly in need of a trim too.

So here they are. Kodi before and after, and a couple of Poppy after. I forgot to take any before pictures of her. I got Kodi's ears shorter than I wanted, but it's not NEARLY as bad as what I did to his legs last time. I still want to do a bit more cleaning up around his face. Elinor wanted Poppy's ears and beard a LOT longer, so that was her choice. But I don't think I butchered either one of them!

I think both dogs look great! Looks like you could have a new profession as a dog groomer! How are you doing? I hope you are doing and feeling well.

Thanks! I went back and trimmed up Kodi's face a bit more this morning. I didn't like the way it looked beside his eyes, and even though his ears were already too short, I really hated them so blunt cut, so I rounded them off and I think they look better now.

I'm slowly improving. My rheumatologist says I'm doing as well as can be expected, which I guess is something! LOL!

Kodi looks so cute and like a puppy! I always wonder - does he act differently with his hair shorter?

Not really. But he does like not having me mess with mats!
