shaving the dog

(which is not a euphemism for something naughty) It’s been hot here – I mean really hot and humid – but we have been reluctant to shave the poor dog because she hates it. Well, it took four of us and two hours but we managed to shave¬† twenty pounds of hair from our little coton de tulear/shih tzu, which is amazing since she only weighs about ten pounds. Here is the before picture:

So here are the after pictures (with one of when we were almost half way finished.)
