Boo's mom was kind enough to send me the directions for Boo's lovely haircut, so we tried a variation of it on Tyke. Because she spends so much time in mud and water, we went just a tad shorter so she could dry faster, and didn't go with the poodle feet (the groomer agreed with me - Tyke's feet are so big for her size, she would have looked a little goofy!)! Here are a few pics after her trip to the groomer!
WOW - short hair feels better!
Checking out the last of the camellias
Inspecting the hyacinths in Fritzy's garden. This stick looks tasty!
Tyke looks adorable with her new cut. Her body fur is a little shorter than Chouette's new hairstyle but there's much more length to the fur on Tyke's face, so she still looks doodle-ish. Very elegant! And much easier to keep neat and clean.
I think it will be very low maintenance for the summer too - Tyke cannot pass a mud puddle, running hose, or any kind of water without getting herself wet! This morning she made a mess of herself while I was rinsing pollen off the car - but she dried much quicker than she does with her long hair!
I have to admit, I like both - I love this cut, but I love her long "doodlelocks" in the wintertime too!
