Marc has been talking for awhile about how he wanted to shave Niko for the summer since he has so much hair. I was never really in favour of this dramatic tactic to keep our dog cool but after a long hot spell last week I agreed to make the appointment. Now I know I may be biased in my opinion but I do think that my dog is one of the most beautiful dogs I have ever seen. His long flowing hair and his markings attract many a comment from passerby's and he loves all the attention they lavish upon him. Here are some pics of my beautiful dog to remind those of you who never check our blog what our dog looks like.
It was hard for me to imagine what Niko would look like with no hair. So imagine my surprise when I went to pick Niko up from the groomers yesterday and saw this pile of hair.
And imagine horror of horros my shock and dismay when I saw what my beautiful puppy looked like after all this hair came off of him. I cannot believe how ugly he has become after a shave. Marc says he is cute but I think it is an ugly cute. You probably can't tell from these pictures but he was apparently bucking around when they were shaving his face so all the hair on his face is uneven and choppy.
My gorgeous puppy is gone, thankfully his hair will start growing back in a month because this is how I feel about the whole situation.
On a more positive note, Niko does seem cooler and has even taken to sleeping on the carpet which I don't think I have ever seen him do. Hopefully I will get more used to him looking like this but for me September can't come soon enough!
