In addition to the fact that (apparently) both M and I ascribe to the age old "who needs haircuts in the summer" adage, our dog is badly in need of being cue-balled. Most labradoodles' hair is left long, but we like Otis's short. It's funny because it was highly traumatic for me the first time I took him in for a haircut. We've now figured out, however, that his having less hair means that there is less hair for attracting dirt and debris for him to drag into the house, there is less hair for the typical "dog smell" to adhere to, and he's much less fidgety and itchy with short hair. That's not to mention that with his face being so light, all the dirt on his face shows up making him look like a little hobo-dog.
Despite all of that, and in thanks to M for fixing my little blogger problem, here's a picture of the little guy, wishing you all a very happy Saturday morning!! Seriously, how cute is my dog??
