the fur was flying

the things we won't do for our fur kids.

we used to take noah to a groomer every 4 months or so. a really lovely woman who always did such a nice job. but here's the thing: noah is such a sensitive little guy that he would come back from the doggy salon acting freaky. at first it would last a few days but then it would start lasting 7 or 8 days before he got back to normal. it was really upsetting for all of us.

in the fall, we decided to cut his hair ourselves. yep, DIY baby! the doggy equivalent of putting a bowl on his head!

on sunday noah got a shampoo and haircut. the 3 of us were locked in the bathroom for 3 whole hours! but only one of us got lots of cookies.....

we cut off enough hair to make another dog!

and after it was all over:

now we have a clipped (and very happy) poochie!

Oh the things we do for our furry loved ones! D & I would do the exact same thing. I'm glad you have found a way to trim Noah without all the anxiety!

Looks like you and Paul did an excellent job. Maybe you should open up your own business. ;)

Noah looks beautiful! I think all 3 of you deserved cookies after that.
