Elvis is a Maltipoo, he does not shed, however his hair grows like human hair. If we didn't trim it, it would drag on the floor. My Elvis has once again transformed from being my sporty dog (short haircut) to becoming my little fluffy puppy (time for a haircut).
I'll make an appointment for Elvis to visit the "groomers house" next week. I admit, Dawn & I tried our best to groom our dog...the results were choppy haircuts, crooked nails & frustration. We have a Wahl clipper/trimmer, pedi-paws, combs, brushes, scissors, nail clippers...A haircut & bath would take Hours. Elvis would fuss a Lot & try to nip at us. He's super sensitive about letting us groom his paws & legs.
We finally gave up after about 3 years of trying to work through it with him. He always gives me a sad look when I drop him off at the groomers..."Mommy don't leave me" is what he's saying to me via our Mommy/Baby mental telepathy. When I return he's happy & handsome. The groomer says he's always a good boy. I wonder...
