Well, I guess it was inevitable

Ugh we finally had to let the groomer shave him. He’s small boned and thin. He’ll be wearing sweaters all winter. Poor baby. I’ll admit he’s still so cute it’s growing on me. He’s still really soft. I guess I’ll just pretend I have a chihuahua till it grows back. I need to up my repertoire of grooming skills.

Awww, he's still a cutie! And this will give you BOTH a respite during the worst of his blowing coat. You can start back in with daily grooming as his coat comes back in, get in a routine, and hopefully keep it at whatever length is perfect for both of you!

It IS amazing how little "dog" there is under all that hair, isn't it? It always makes me laugh how much they look like drowned rats when they are all wet down in the sink! LOL!

Yes!!! He’s TINY! My son said something like, wow it’s weird to have such a little dog. I’ve definitely noticed during baths, but you blow dry and they fluff up again. Now I am just thinking, is he really 10 lbs? We need to do something! He’s a picky eater! My DH says he’s fine, but it did scare me a little, lol.

Hahaha, we had the same with Denver. While he saved some of his fur he is just SO SKINNY and tiny!!!

Interestingly, I did get him sweaters, but the cold didnít phase him. Maybe itís because his own coat was a bit longer, but itíll definitely make the blowing coat easy for a while.

He’s shivering at night, even in our bed. Cuddled against me now with a blanket on.

He's cute! I always worried about Willow being cold when we camped in the spring. I used to let her sleep in her sweater.

It's funny how much bigger they look with all that hair! Willow looks like a rat when she gets wet at bath time!

Except he doesn't look SKINNY _at all_! No bones showing on his ribs, spine or hips, right? He just looks like a small, fine-boned Havanese. Pixel looks similar when she's wet, and she weighs just 10 lbs, and is in perfect weight.

Nope I think you’re right! I got the opportunity to see his dad in a short haircut (not this short lol!) And he’s similar. I think he’s just small boned considering he’s pretty tall too. They just look so different without all that fluff!
