Here are photos from Lola’s Spring clipping. It’s always fun to clip her after she has grown out all Winter. It’s like having two dogs in one. We always seem to pick a windy day to clip her coat. I feel a fine patina of fur covering my exposed skin. The process is to bath Lola the night before, clip her the next day, put everything you’ve got on into the laundry immediately and then wash up because you are covered in clippings.
She is very good about being clipped. She even wags and waits to be put up on the table. You can tell that she is thinking, “Oh boy. I like this table. This is my table. I’m the center of attention and I get an endless stream of good stinky treats.” I consider clipping Lola to be 30 minutes of controlled shedding in the place of my choosing and the time I pick. We will clip her once a month now through September or October. Then she gets to grow out for the Winter all over again.
