The clippers heat up quickly

So I shave the dog one body part at a time:

one leg,

two legs,

three legs,

four legs,

one foot,

two feet,

three feet,

four feet,





Hot dog ready for summer relief.

It takes longer than a girl

getting ready for a hot date.

    Good girl!! I always feel bad that I don’t shave my Siberian cat but I just up the air conditioning…we are both proud of our long manes:) I do however, remember shaving my schnauzer…they run around so much outdoors and need to feel relieved of the summer heat. Hot date, indeed, you must show us a photo.

      At one point I had 3 poodles and there was no way I could afford to have them groomed professionally even quarterly. The secret to success is investing in the professional equipment though. I bought professional clippers ($450) which are an entirely different thing than the $40 pet grooming kits they sell at Walmart, etc.! The right tools for the job always make a difference, notwithstanding the old adage, “It’s a poor workman that blames his tools.” πŸ™‚ Here’s one of my favourite posts about poodle grooming:
