Awhile ago, Julie and I were emailing about Pieka’s ear fluff. A riveting topic, I know. She suggested that I do a little trimming to give Pieka a cleaner look. Well, I needed to clip Louie (the shih tzu mutt) today…so I got brave, slapped a medium guard on the clippers and went to work on Pieka.
You will likely all say “we can’t tell a difference.” You would be shocked at the amount of hair that came off this morning. She was surprisingly compliant. I think she thought I was dremeling her ears. She LOVES having her nails dremeled (who doesn’t like a pedicure?), so it was really no big deal. So, without further ado:
By the way, she’s chewing a deer antler in the above picture. My dad collected, cleaned, and sawed them for me.
I know it’s a little rough. See that dark patch on the right? That stupid patch of hair will NOT brush smooth or trim…doesn’t matter how much I shave, it still sticks out.
Later this week, I may get brave and do some more. Should I? We have class on Monday nights and I didn’t want to take a bald-eared puppy. I’m trying to balance things – I want to clean her up, without shaving so much hair that she looks strange. She’s got a lot of hair on the sides of her face and neck, I would almost have to trim the whole thing if I took too much off the ears and temples.
Pieka is now crashed for a nap. Apparently getting your hair done really takes it out of a girl.
