Mattie's First Haircut

Mattie turns one year old either today or tomorrow.  (Her litter was born in the middle of the night, so I'm not really sure.)  Anyway, I decided I knew what one year of hair growth looks like and it was time for a haircut.  Plus the hair was really getting hard to take care of...probably close to 8 inches long in places.  Brushing was getting harder, since the hair was matting more, and I was having to brush her every time she came in from outside to get the snow out...that got old quick!  ;-)



She was nervous at the groomer at first, but did surprisingly well for never being clipped before.  She had actually settled in quite well by the time we got there and was running around as happy as can be. :-)

It was hard letting the beautiful long hair go, but I think we're going to be happier with her upkeep from now on! :-)

Happy 1st Birthday Mattie!

She looks cute! Is she acting any different because of it?

She looks adorable and I can't imagine keeping her brushed with her hair long. I try to get Skye trimmed about every 3 months or so.
