I caved...

And took Kodi to a professional this time. Since he's doing the water treadmill for his shoulder, having his hair a little shorter is really helpful, and I really hacked him the last time I did him. so I figured that since I'm saving a TON of money with no classes or lessons right now, I might as well spend a bit on a nice hair cut for him, right?

I think he looks absolutely ADORABLE!!! The first photo is his beautiful professional cut today (the same gal who grooms Pixel) and the second is my last "Mommy Cuts" attempt, which took me about 6 hours. LOL!

You mentioned the Belton before, but wow, the difference in color is what stands out to me!

You did a great job, but Iím sure itís a nice, relaxing sort of Treat Yourself to have him all cleaned up.

Funny, mine has his long awaited grooming appointment today!

Yes, and he really doesnít have a lot, as Beltons go. Iíll see later if I can find some photos of a friendís Belton, who was really black and charcoal once she was cut down!

And yes, it was a REAL treat to have it take so much less time AND look so much better!

Kodi looks super handsome! I have been trying to keep Mia in a longer puppy cut but this is challenging in our super damp humid summer! The belly and legs get sopping wet just from morning dew. I try to dry her when she comes in but the more fur, the harder it is to dry her. The past year has been the wettest in history here. I may take her down a bit so she hopefully dries out faster.

Panda is in long coat because she was still showing when Covid hit, and the plan is for her to show again... and her coat is very easy. There is no reason not to keep her in full coat.

Kodi was in full coat until he was 10. During that year, I was very ill, and just couldnít keep up with his profuse coat, so I ended up cutting him down. I have trimmed him myself, and ALWAYS cared for his long coat myself until then. Iím better now, but he is older, and in the spring, he injured his shoulder. He now has underwater treadmill therapy for his shoulder, and being wet all the time with a full coat would be miserable. So with one thing and another, his coat is staying short. I decided to have Pixelís groomer do him this time as a ďtreatĒ to myself. I HOPE his shoukder recovers to the point that he can compete again, but in obedience, he can compete in a short coat too. I would have loved him to finish his career in full coat, but right now, Iíd be thrilled if he can complete his UD at all! Weíll have to see. Shoulder injuries can take a long time to heal.

Pixel has been in a puppy cut since she was about a year old. She is a teeny, fine boned thing, and also has a very profuse, very fine coat. When she was in full coat she kind of looked like a little kid wearing her grandmotherís old bearskin coat. She was matting a lot during blowing coat, and I first planned to cuther down just once, and then let her grow out again. But she looked SO cute in her short cut that she has stayed short ever since.

Thatís helpful info, thank you! I was also very ill, in 2015, and the guys have been in puppy cuts since. Jodie is 13 pounds but the past couple months Iíve been thinking that with so many layers that are very thick (profuse) sheís getting a little lost in there. A kid in her grandmotherís bearskin coat is a great description. After missing one day of grooming while attending to Cotton and JoJo, I realized how much time I was spending just on Jodie every day to keep the mats away. I think itís time to grit my teeth and at least start trimming an inch or two at a time and see how that goes.
JoJo is only 9 pounds so he has always looked like an actual puppy with shorter hair too. Cotton does not like being groomed (Jodie sleeps) so a puppy cut is fine with him. I may be back in the near future begging for tips😋

Kodi, you look like a million bucks! How did you like being so pampered?
