Baxter needed a grooming.  He was so shaggy all over and we couldn't even get a comb through him.  One day I was petting him and felt something sharp.  Upon further investigation, it was a pricker ball.  A little teeny one.  How long had it been stuck in his fur?  Dunno.

I took him to the groomer, and asked them to cut him short, but not too short, and to leave his head alone, because we were trying to grow out the top to give him more of a poodle head.  They did just as I asked.

Now he looks like he has an enormous head.

And his body looks so small and skinny.  Check out the side view.

My husband says he looks like an Albino Wookie.  I say he looks like Kazoo, the outerspace alien from the old Flinstones show.

The kids said he looked like ET. 

In any case, his head is big for his body now.  He used to have more of a flat top,
like this.

Which we liked, but it reminded us too much of our old doggy, Oliver, which made us a little sad, so we wanted him to look a little poofier on top.  Plus, we live in Jersey.  We like big hair.

We tried to mush the hair down by putting him under the covers.

That kind of worked. 

When my hair isn't right, I get really crabby.  But Baxter doesn't worry about it. 

I love dogs.
