Don't let you kids drink your home brew before they do the chores around house!!!

Or maybe they gave a few to the groomer.... That would explain it!

LOL, damn Bier, poor little bugger looks like "WTF?"

Are you sure this wasn't some kind of plot to NOT have to take the dog back to the groomer for a long long time?

Great looking dog tho!

If I can find it, i'll post a picture of our Sheltie, Sinjun (RIP ole girl ) when my sister cut all of her hair off. She looked like a little dingo!

Nah, I bet the dog is way more comfortable without all that hair. Just think of it as a summer cut.

A guy I used to know had a Himalayan cat- one of those long-haired white ones, ya know? I know that's kinda froo-froo, but he's an artist and likes Volkswagen Beetles, so he has that kind of gene, I suppose. But, anyway, his apartment was un-airconditioned so every summer he would give his cat a buzzcut to help keep him cool.

And every summer, after the buzzcut, the cat would run into a closet and wouldn't come out for 2 weeks! If you opened the closet, you'd just hear a Hissssssssss coming from the darkness.... it was spooky.

Bonsai cats get used to being uniquely trimmed.

I had my wire-haired doxie shaved one summer. Didn't make any difference in his attitude, but with a doxie, how would you know?

Watch out for sunburn.
