I took him to the groomers yesterday to get shaved down, he's been panting a lot, and I HATE it! I knew he'd look a little goofy, but they shaved under his eyes and left his snout longer and it just looks terrible :( They shaved his belly a little shorter, which would be fine if it didn't look all choppy. I told her that I didn't want his head and tail left all poofy and the rest shaved, but that is basically what they did. I'm going to get some good clippers and just do it myself the next time! What a waste of $60!

I honestly don't think he looks bad. Maybe try trimming his nose hair just a little bit.

Trust me - in 2 weeks you will be much happier with it :)

Yep, I think I'm going to trim his nose some so it doesn't look so weird. They just cut it so close, it looks weird, you can see his skin around his eyes. The body isn't so bad, he's sooo soft!

Did you go to Petsmart? Dex got a "bad" cut from them a month ago. He is now at the length we wanted him at (1/2 inch on his body) and I'm happy we will be able to go longer till his next cut ;)

He looks really soft!!!

Awww... He's still a cutie-pie!
When it grows out a little I think it will look better.
It doesn't look that bad now either, just on the short side.

That is where we went. I tried to get him into the place I took him before but I couldn't get him in until Tuesday and I really wanted to get it done since he was so hot. Oh well, live and learn I guess. I think I will still trim his face some thought, it looks really weird :)

I think he looks wonderful, especially for a Petsmart cut. They did cut around his eyes a little close but they left his body much longer than they have ever left Copper's. I agree with Leslie, give it a couple of weeks and he will look even better.

I think he is gorgeous !!, what a sweet expression Murphy has.

I always think AB looks funny when we trim her, when they lose 3-6 inches they looks bald, but within a week I'm use to it and she is sooo soft, like a chenille blankie

They gave me a thing with different fur lengths to choose from and I choose the longest one on there.

He does look/feel like chenille, and I do like that. I think it's the big head thing that is bothering me the most, and the shaving around his eyes so close. His head just looks soooooo big :lol:

I think he looks just fine... Very "Continental"! I would leave it as is.
I'm with Chas ... quite handsome! And it will grow, quickly. Seems that after two weeks another trim is needed! Love the golden beard!

I think he looks really cute. Hope he doesn't get sunburned on his nose in the TX sunshine! Cali was already getting really hot here two weeks ago, so I clipped her pretty short. She doesn't tolerate the heat very well.

It will grow out. Dexter looked like this in late March...



within 2 weeks he looked SO much better! Once his body grew in, his head didn't look so big (I was calling him bobblehead doodle for a few weeks in there).

Here is Copper at his worst. They cut him so short his skin showed and it was winter which is why he is wearing his boy's shirt. The purpose of my rambling is to show you how NICE Murphy really does look. :D
