Hunter's First Haircut

Time for the dog to get his first haircut. As he doesn't moult, which is great for asthma sufferers, he has to be shorn. Our local vet recommended a dog groomer nearby and the missus booked an appointment for this morning. Lucky to find the place initially as the street sign was bent so as to be illegible from the direction we came and we were unfamiliar with the area. I was quite interested to see how it was done but she said to come back in an hour and a half. Strange. I wondered how Hunter would feel being in a stranger's house with another dog present without us there. I was a little concerned about leaving him there too.

Went shopping and filled up the car in the interim. The grooming was finished in 35 minutes as it turned out and we went to collect him. Wow, what a different looking dog without hair. And the girly bow made for a weird look. He looks like such a skinny dog now. Check out the photos. Not bad for $30 even though that is more than my haircut costs and we will go just as regularly.

Dogs rule. What a cute guy. I love mine too. He loves his snacks and pampering. Gil
