A New Summer Cut

Roar!!! Hear the Lion Roar!!!!

So this is my new summer cut, it is a hair-cut for golden retrievers quite unique to Taipei as I have never seen this hairstyle anywhere else before.

The groomer gave me a nifty bandana after the shave.

Look at what's left with my tail!

I have furry boots too!

Did I hear you giggling at me?

Remember the horrific hot spots that I had two years ago?

I was shaved for the first time then. This time round, the cut is a lot fancier, don't you think?

The ticks are gone, but I still have to wear the dreaded e-collar. Grandma has been cleaning my wounds several times a day and they are healing well. Sigh... can't wait to get the collar off!

Here's wishing everyone a fun, safe and tick-free summer!

Oooops, did you hear me giggling?
Your head and your tail fur style are impressive!
I'm glad you're free of bugs now, feel much lighter and cooler, Dino?
How's baby Ashley? I want to see more pics of her!
Love y'all!

Gibson got his summer cut too Dino, but he still has all his tail furs for some reason. Mom thinks it looks silly that way but oh well. Benson is just going to get a trim since he's been so sick and is so underweight we dont want to see him without fur cuz he;ll be emaciated.

We love your cute pics Dino!!

Wags and woofs,
Benson and Gibson
