Thanks to a combination of factors:
- Mud Season
- High Pollen Count
- A toddler who pulls hair
- No time to spend line brushing my dog's 'fro
She DOES though seem quite happy with her new 'do. Not only is her hair no longer getting yanked, but her red, itchy eyes immediately cleared up. So this may be a thing we do every Spring. And only keep her in a true Kerry Clip when it's better for her.
A different kerry blue, who was also shaved.
Edit: We do have a lovely groomer, but this shaving has other bonuses...one being the $100 every month or two we can save. Yes, that's how much her haircut is. Not including tip or the gas to and fro to a groomer a half-hours drive. But me doing her cut "right" by myself takes 5-8 hours. My haircut? When I can get the time? $14 Hubby's? $21. There is something seriously wrong here.
When you start adding the $119 fee for every one of Kerry's allergy treatments (not to mention mine and hubby's from all the pollen she carried in her poof), this is a HUGE cost savings!
