Tucker’s had his hair cut before, a “doodle tune-up” if you will, they make it so he can see, and take a little off the top, but nothing, and i mean NOTHING could have prepared our family for what happened yesterday. Tucker’s been getting into the habit of getting matted, not matter how much I brush the puppy the matts would just keep showing up and getting worse. A few weeks ago, and Tuckers ‘professional’ bath, the brushed him for over 45minutes, and just couldn’t get him de-matted- and then promptly suggested we shave him. I knew when dropping him off yesterday he was going to need to get the same buzz cut my brother has, it wasn’t until I picked him up from the groomers that I fully realized what that meant. And then I got him in the car and we cried about it together (damn hormones). Tucker is no long a fluffy puppy. He looks like a poodle. Which I guess isn’t that surprising due to that fact that he’s 3/4 poodle, but STILL. His golden beach locks are D-O-N-E. Tucker is taking a picture break for the next 4-6 weeks while we try to get some fluff back on his bare-ish body. . . and yes, I refuse to post a picture. For fear of more tears.
Here’s a look back at all that beautiful hair. . .
