Having a lovely snooze on the rug when mum sneaks up with her scissors and snip, snip, snip, suddenly I’m having my winter trim. Long overdue, she says, I was a shaggy mess and taking too long to dry in this wet winter weather.
I decided I’d just lie there and let her get on with it instead of making a fuss and it all taking so much longer. There was a huge pile of hair when she’d finished – enough for another dog (albeit a small one). She also gave me a brisk brush, which I love, really stimulates my skin and gets rid of the under hair.
So tomorrow, whether I’m at the beach and swimming or over the muddy fields, I’ll be dry in a trice with all that hair gone.
