Hair today ~ gone tomorrow

Our dog, Koda puts up with a lot. He really does. On top of everything he puts up with the kids, he has been putting up with the summer heat for each of his 5 summers we’ve had him. Koda 1He has a pretty and long coat. And ohhhh is it ever thick! Lot’s of undercoating on this guy. Well, Lineman told me we should shave him. He looks a little different now… Koda 2The boys said he “looked as naked as a plucked chicken” But does Koda ever feel better now! He hardly ever pants now, doesn’t shed those clumps of hair, sleeps well and is just plumb crazy with excitement. You can bet he’ll look like a plucked chicken next year too!

The first time we shaved our dogs, they almost look embarassed to be seen. Now they love it.

Your dogs looks great and happy. Our dog loves the finished product, but hates the razor, terribly. So, the last time I shaved her she was really squirmy and she looked like a cancer victim with hair gone in patches. I really did a bad job, but she is not as hot :)

We just had our shih tzu shaved and he sure is a lot happier, he also sure looks a lot skinner.
He sleeps through the night without having to go out in the middle of the night now.Hey
Love the photo of your son and dog.
God bless

Tails isn't real fond of the idea, but I think once that hair is gone he is happy!

He does look like a different dog. I bet he's so relieved to have all that hair gone for the summer.
