The photo here is me, Corky the shelter dog, exploring rocks and showing off my summer doggy haircut in winter.
Spring is ony a couple weeks away, yet because of a problem with matting the groomer needed to clip my fur down to 3mm (1/8th inch).
Attempts to leave the fur a little longer didn’t work because the clippers pulled and hurt (so I tried several times to b-i-t-e the groomer). They had to call my parents for permission to give me the buzz cut. At least they left some fur on my head and bushy tail.
Okay, so a summer doggy haircut in the spring may make sense, but in the winter? Thankfully, I live in Florida so a summer haircut should work year around.
This winter has been especially cold with temperatures staying 15-20 degrees below average, so here’s the good news! I got clothes! I have a blue fleece jacket with high collar, and a purple down hooded coat to keep me cozy when it’s really really cold.
