Well, I found out why I couldn't get Miko and Rumor short. Down deep beneath what I could comb....were major knots and and mats......so off came the guards, and off came the hair. Since Miko's skin is blueish(except where the white is), she looks pretty darn good. Poor Rumor looks like he's fresh from an episode of Animal Planet's "Animal Cops". He is also still very thin. It grows out.....right?? :?

Miko midway through....


Miko finished (and forgiving me)


Rumor (not for the faint of heart)


Rumor (poor thing) I have fixed his feet since these pictures!


I'm still working on his face and some of the missed spots.....waiting for my cousin to come over....need an extra set of hands. He's quite squirmy...... :wink:

I hope you don't all hate me for what I've done to my children. I'm almost afraid to take Rumor to the park today!! :oops: :oops:

ooooohhhhhhh those poor babies!!! hahaha. The naked look is becoming quite popular here on the forum!

Gene seriously though...it had to be done. If they were that matted it's better to get the mats out. Their hair will grow back.

Honestly, Gene, you did a great job. Don't beat yourself up! Matts happen! :(

hahhahaaaaaaaaa sorry i had to giggle GENE ...as i had a visual of how sqirmy Rumor must have been and you trying NOT to nick him and do the best you could and as fast as possible.

I think they look good and your cousin will be able to help with missed spots.

PEANUT who NEVER HAS matted........OMG her elbows are matted down to the skin, i am afraid her legs will be shaved down.

So hang in there GENE....OH I didn't know MIKO had cute black spots on her white chest, soooooo cute!
and I think you did a GREAT JOB :D

I'm actually glad to see these pics. Madge is SO matted that I am going to have to shave her soon too. I am waiting for the weather to decide to warm up a bit first. After seeinf your pics, I don't feel too bad about it 'cause I don't think Miko looks too bad at all. Rumor, on the other hand DOES look like a refugee from Animal Cops.... :lol: He will forgive you and he is still very handsome!

OMG Gene you are cracking me up majorly this morning. hahaha...I did get a good laugh at Rumor. Never fear, Dex looks ridiculous and within 1 month it has grown in so nicely!! hehehe

I actually think Miko looks great :) Rumor is a bit silly looking, but Miko came out really good!

I went back to look again and the clydesdale comment is really funny :)

OMG Gene... :lol:

The pic of Dex just confirmed that I did the right thing in calling a professional to do Chip. :shock: He's going in May 5 'cause he's got a Bob Marley look going on that's more than I can handle.

Chant with me... "It will grow back... It will grow back"

OMG That was so funny. I laugh so hard. They look so different. But it doesn't look bad at all. I like it. I am just not used to seeing your bunch cut. But Romor is my fav.

OMG I am cracking up - I saw Miko and thought, she looks adorable, especially in the 2nd picture, she looks like she is smiling

Then...............I saw Rumor, OMG I'm sorry but I just cracked up, those balls of fur are just too funny and cute. He does remind me of Annabelle when we trim her short, she is all skinny legs and looks pitiful when trimmed but you do get use to it .

There is NO way the shelter would take back your precious Rumor, it is sooo obvious how loved all your babies are !

Thanks for the chuckle, I needed one today

PS Rita, you need to learn - no beverages when reading the forums :wink:

OMG....it is a good thing you didn't go into hairdressing (or dog grooming) for a living.

I am sorry but it is hysterical...the look on Miko's face is priceless and Rumor....well I agree, lets hope the adoption folks don't come very soon.

I sent my groomer Tanner's awful grooming picture ....the one in the sweater...I think she would love to see Rumor.....

Seriously....all will be fine...it will grow out and you can do it all over again :p :p :p

They will thank you as the weather heats up and you will thank them every time you don't have to sweep/vacuum up the stuff the hair drags in! I think they look great!!! K

We finished Rumor's face and some other spots. My cousin said that parts of him (where he moved) looked like he's been prepped for surgery! :shock: Her daughter says it looks like I carved the Batman symbol on his chest! :shock: I looked....she's right!! :oops: We trimmed his tail, so now he looks like a duster tail!!

Sue.....Jonah would not leave me alone til I shaved him bald too........JUST KIDDING!!! But I did have to spray him with detangler and give him a good brushing so he'd let me finish the other two.

I am going to be investing in a #7 blade for Rumor especially.......my poor clown boy. I'll post pictures of the finished product tomorrow. They're all whooped right now.

One thing I forgot to tell you all. When we finished Rumor up, I put him on the dining room table where my cousin and her daughter and I worked on him. After we were done and cleaned up the hair.......Rumor jumped back up on the table!! :shock: Guess he enjoyed the attention.... :roll:
