Here's a picture of Levi three weeks ago:

Here's a picture now:

And here's what happened in between, when I sat on the floor with Levi and a pair of scissors for three hours:

He was very good about it. Maybe we can make this home-grooming work.


  1. I have to admit - I like the shaggy look the best.

  2. Duly Inspired, great idea!

    Christine, I agree with you, but when his hair gets too long, it gets tangles and mats in it that I can't get out with a comb. Also, the shorter cut is cooler for him. This is only the second time I've ever done it myself, so I hope I get better with practice.

  3. OMG! I can't believe he let you work on him that long. My bestie has taking to trimming Bart with electric shears... It's $55 for a trim for him and it grows back in three weeks. That equals one pricey summer!

  4. Holly, I have to catch him when he's sleepy, and I have to be content to work on whichever side is "up" at any given moment. It cost me over $100 for Levi's only professional trim, even though he had only one very tiny mat at the time. I can't even imagine what it would cost now that his coat is so much denser (and tangles more easily) than it used to be. Kim and I invested in the electric shears to, but I haven't been brave enough to use them yet.
