I finally figured this out...so here they are.


This is Darla when we first got her.


Darla and Mommy


Tired after a long day of traveling


Had to get her shaved yesterday because the mats were so bad. She wouldn't let me take her picture. I think she is still a little upset with me.


Darla's big brother Titan. He is a two year old Lab/Beagle mix. They get along great and he is very protective of Darla.

Ha, who would not be upset when getting bald ?

I am wondering, how long between brushing did you go that they got matted to the point of having to be shaved ? I not always brush everyday. It happened that I did not brush for 3 days but I always was able to get the matts out without shaving.

It was quite some time between brushings. She had never had mats before so I didn't think anything of it. I just brushed her every now and then...everything was fine. Guess things are different now though. Hopefully her hair will grow out fast and then I will be brushing her everyday.

I bought her two fleece sweaters and a jacket...felt pretty guilty for having to shave her. But I am doing everything to keep her warm.
