I have had a very busy few weeks, I try to bath Mercedes every 4 to 5 days but we got off our schedule, she had some nasty matts, most of them were on her front legs and around her neck. I took my time with her bath, drying and flatiron and I think she looks great! She also smells really good( she was starting to smell like a dog:w00t:) I was thinking about giving her a summer cut but then I look at pictures and think maybe NOT. I just love this girl:wub: as you already know:thumbsup:

Cathy and Mercedes

I debate summer cuts too,especially w/4 fluffs and a cocker too. But once I bathe and get them all dried and groomed,I think ,oh all the beautiful fur..I can't do it....Plus they would really look different.It's hard to maintain all that long fur but I am so used to seeing them long,it would really change their look.

Mercedes is one gorgeous Princess. Don't you just love it after they've had their bath. So pretty and so clean and they smell sooooooooooooooooo good. I love to bury my nose in their hair right after their bath. LOL

She is just gorgeous! :wub: you do a really lovely job of her.

I just bathed Lola last night. She is in a mega matting stage, coat change at 10 months I think. OMG she is matting horribly right now, and she goes out for a lot more walks so I am seriously considering cutting her down. But when she is fresh clean and dematted it is very hard to do..... such beautiful glistening fur. :unsure:

Mercedes looks fantastic....though now that I know her in person you could shave her to the skin and all that PERSONALITY would still have her looking like a million bucks!
Thanks Jackie!! She does have personality:wub:

Awww... Mercedes is such a beautiful little girl! :wub::wub::wub:

With that coat, I think she'd be beautiful with it long or styled short. But please do what you think Mercedes needs. That is, after all, the final arbitor, isn't it? :wub:

I'm considering trimming Button down to the length she was at 5 months, like in the siggie pic with the peach bow. That was the length where her coat was most managable, and lately, with all the rain we've been having, her little legs and belly have been getting matted from lying and running around in wet grass. It'll probably break my heart to cut it off, but I have to think about what's best for her.
