Ollie's haircut

Hi all --

Mom wanted me to talk about Ollie now and the day we had haircuts at our breeder's house. It was the first Friday of the month and everyone had to be groomed.

Josie and my mom Clancy waiting in a crate -- looks like they've already gotten their trims:



Emmy didn't need much but she had to come too (she says Why do I have to get a haircut, I'm not going anywhere!):



And I've already had mine and they stuffed me into an airline crate. Sigh!



This was probably Ollie's second haircut ever, but he was very good. What a shaggy baby!



Startin' from the back end... whooo, careful back there!!


Scissoring is an art form in our breed!


Whew, now she's done snipping hair off his back end:


And now she's going to cut off his head! I can't watch!


Combin' out his legs --


Then they took Ollie out to the driveway and took a pic of him on a show lead. Ollie says "gag they're strangling me!!".


He's too young to go to shows yet but my breeder wanted a fancy pic of him to see what he looks like at 3 months. Three more months of growing and he'll be ready for the dog shows! Probably in early July he'll go. I'll have to coach him so he'll know what to do.
Mom read his pedigree and Guess what??? I am his great-grand uncle and my mom Clancy is his great-grandma! Oh well, then, he's a handsome boy for sure!

Later!
Rudy

Ollie sure is a handsome boy when he's spiffed and scissored! We had no idea what Bedlington's looked like au naturale.

Mom is doing some serious agility work with me and I think we might go back to Woofs! What classes are you taking?

Hey! My alphas are back home now so I can blog again!

Your pal,
