I like to give Alfie a haircut approximately every 4-6 weeks. He hasn’t had one since before Christmas, so he was overdue. I like to suck up to him, giving him tons of belly rubs so he’s in a good mood before we head out on the patio and start trimming away. He’s a patient dog when it comes to his hair however, it’s not the hair cut parts he is afraid of, it’s the nail trimming that comes immediately after. I don’t blame him, poor fella. Sometimes I nick his cuticles and make him bleed. It’s hard to tell where his quick ends with his dark nails. Luckily his yearly vet appointment is coming up, so I will ask them to trim his nails next time we head in.
Lucky for him he knows if he behaves he gets a really good treat once I’m done with him. For now, enjoy the many faces of Alfie as I break out the scissors to give him a trimmin’.
