This time it’s not me though . . . on Sunday, I finally gave Billy his retirement haircut. Now that I’ve decided not to show him anymore, I felt it was time for the long hair to go. While it is most certainly beautiful, it is far from practical. Especially for a dog whose idea of a good time is running through the bushes at the back of the yard and collecting stickers in his coat. The first snip of the scissors was tough, I admit. But after that was done, it got easier and easier. Now he looks very cute, like a little teddy bear. And his coat feels so soft, just like chenille. After his haircut, he raced around the yard like a crazy-dog.
I sent the pictures to his new mom, and she liked the trim. I’m pretty pleased with it myself. All it will need is a bit of touch-up before he heads to his new home. And then he is all set for his new life!
