On Friday, Alvar went to the groomer to get a birthday haircut (he'll be 4 on the 21st :w00t: ). I had been thinking about having him cut down for awhile and took him for a cut in the early Spring, but the groomer talked me out of it :huh: I guess I didn't look ready:blush: But, I got the courage up and went for it Friday.

It took me a couple of days to adjust to the change, but I'm finally starting to really like it. What do you think?

Before (one week ago today):



After:







I couldn't resist putting a tie on him


The legs are little bit shorter than I had wanted, so I think we'll be growing them out some.

Thanks for looking!

OMG, I bet he felt so much lighter and it will be so much easier to groom him . . .I am just waiting until SeRi turns one and then I will chop off most of her hair too :w00t:

Alvar, your are looking so adorable in your new "summer" cut :wub:

Oh Anne - I LOVE IT!!!!! :wub::wub: Having met sweet Alvar several times I know what a ton of hair he had and as beautiful as it was, this cut becomes him so. Marie's right, his eyes just look so big and expressive. I swear, he does look like a puppy. We all need something like that to take years off our lives. And I really don't think his leg hair is too short. He has that perfect fluffy hair that fills it out so he just looks soft and cuddly. Congratulations!!!:chili::chili: Can't wait to see him in person.

Oh Alvar!!! You're quite the hunk. I bet you're running around like "free at last". Have you weighed him since his cut, Anne? I'd be interested in knowing if long coats actually weigh them down. LOL

Too bad there isn't a locks of love dog charity like there is for people? Obviously dogs don't need wigs :HistericalSmiley::HistericalSmiley: but maybe poundage of hair raising money for a dog charity. :)

Thanks! It's funny, the haircut doesn't seem to have phased him at all, I had expected him to have a reaction to it (good or bad), but he just got right back to business.

Awww, thank you! I do like the trim on his head a lot, I think you're right it makes his eyes pop a bit more:wub:

Alvar looks great! Puppy cuts are so much easier.
Thank you! It's amazing how easy the cut is, grooming takes 5 minutes rather than 40+:w00t:

Awww, thank you! The legs are growing on me a bit, the groomer did a really nice job of blending them in with his body. They are a bit longer than the body, I guess I just pictured them a little longer.

Thanks! I should weigh him! I hadn't thought to yet, I wonder how much he lost :w00t:

I did, had it all chopped off :w00t: He looks smaller and bigger to me at the same time, it's weird. I think I like it, he looks like a puppy again :wub:
