For months now I have watched Shaggy become well....more shaggy and I've loved it! His coat is SO different from Fozzie's that I frankly didn't know what would become if it and what I would do with it. I tried taking pictures to show what I'm trying to describe but I'm not the photographer many of you are. Anyway, I made an appointment for tomorrow with my groomer friend who does all the clipping, cutting, scissoring on Fozzie (I bath, brush, and trim but the full body cut I'll leave to her). We make a day out of my appointments talking while the "hair flies". Right now at this moment (I say this because in the next moment I may change my mind) but right NOW, my plan is to have his hair shaved at the longest legnth possible in hopes of evening up the growth. The hair down his back is several inches longer than the hair on his sides, belly, and legs. The hair under his tail is fluffy like a retriever. His legs have whispy hairs as does his ears. He has a goat beard and some funky visor like hair over his eyes but the top of his head is short.
I'm not worried about my groomer doing anything I don't want and she won't do anything that will make him look bad. I just needed to decide what to do:) That is what led me to DK, looking for pictures of doodles similar to Shaggy to see what others are doing with "shaggy" like doodle hair. I'm as excited about Shaggy's new doo as I get for my own =)
