what have we done!!??!

we have given charlie a 'summer buzz' each of the last 2 years. it is a long,hot,itchy job but he really does much better without the heavy coat in the nebraska heat. this year one of us decided it should happen earlier than usual and one of us decided it was worth paying whatever the groomer asked. we both got our way. and none of us are happy.
handsome charlie. (our cut from last summer)

poor charlie. he is shaved. uneven. raw in a couple spots.
and pale!!
i guess it will remain our job.

Even I (the most non-pet person we know) feel bad for Charlie. I am sure Aidan, however, looks adorable with his buzz. Maybe the two of them will bond even more over their buzz experiences.

i'm sure aidan will win the cute contest hands down. we're convinced that charlie is taking full advantage of our sympathy. he has been so naughty....doesn't listen to any commands. jumps on the couch uninvited....apparently hearing receptors are somehow attached to the hair ends.

its a good thing aidan never sulks.

Well, Charlie seems to have good reason for acting out for awhile.

I wish we had time to trade comments all day, but it is not meant to be. I am taking advantage of a lull in the action due to Spring Break. Next week will see a return to my usual lack of participation.
