Hair!

No, not the musical and not mine, either. There is a heaping pile of it under the hallway bench....
And a lighter ...in both color and weight ... dog on top of the bench. This was a bit better than the last time we did this, which was close kin to mud wrestling and took a couple of hours.

I took a cue from REAL groomers and put her up on the bench which gave me more control, and I did it over 2 days. This pile of hair was the main event, which took about an hour overall, but she was left with sort of bell bottom legs and feet, so on day 2, today, we spent a quick 30 minutes getting them off and smoothing some of the roughest spots. It won't ever be mistaken for a job by a real groomer, but the savings were worth it ... for me. You will have to ask her what she thinks, but....

She looks pretty happy considering she was sure I was going to kill her when it all started, judging from her shaking and quivering. It appears that all is forgiven when the events are followed by cookies.

Still using scissors or the much more convenient clippers?

Definitely clippers. It would have taken a week with scissors. They are in the bottom left corner .. pale pink clippers.. How cute is that?
