I bet she feels soooo much cooler! Our neighbors have an English sheep dog, and Lucky just got her summer 'do about a month ago. I almost didn't recognize her! As a matter of fact, until she got the clipping, I wasn't sure she was even a she!
LOL Everyone that see's Big Bertha thinks she is a HE!!
First thing they say is Man he sure is big...does he bite?
LOL Dh always says well SHE ain't never bit me hee hee
Most everyone is scared of her because of her size. But she wouldn't even hurt a flea. Our poor meterman gets real nerveous when he has to come read the meter...b/c she is barking like a fog horn, but what he don't know is she is TTing all over the place b/c she is more scared of him!! LOL
She'd be a lap dog if I let her!
I'm sure she is much cooler and happy about the new haircut. I clipped our dogs a month or more ago. It's something I do at least once a summer for their own good and to cut down on the hair they shed all over the house.
Mings, I'm sure Bertha and your baby dog would look soo cute sitting together! and would probably play for hours too, Bertha is just a big ole baby anyways and she loves to play.
Leaf, I know what you mean about the hair getting everywhere, although we don't let Bertha in the house there is hair flying all around in the yard from where she was shedding. I think the birds love it though, making their nest out of it. I found a nest about 3 weeks ago that had hair in it...and it had to be Bertha's! LOL Made a nice soft bed for the babies though I'm sure hee hee

It is a long while since this thread was started but I just had to comment on this lovely dog of yours. Of course, I am biased as I have a handsome staffie whyo rarely moults and has very little fur on his tummy...
Also he is as gentle as a lamb and loves everybody!! Except he has been attacked by three different male rottweilers and now tends to treat that breed very warily until they prove their good intentions.
I have two beautiful full coated poms. This summer I finally consented to let my daughter get them a "lion cut". Oh, I loved it, and they looked so cute, however, the cost is rather beyond my budget for trims. I decided to just let it all grow out!! Oh my, Oh, my - their undercoat is growing in first. It is dense and wooly looking and I feel sorry for them (and me too!) because they look so pitiful. I just hope the hair grows back at all. I've heard some horror stories, as I researched it **after** the short shave was done. Here in Texas, winter is coming, and will last about 5 weeks. LOL, so I really don't have to worry about them being cold.
