Skunktaneous Combustion

When a friend stopped by the other day he caught sight of this and asked if a skunk had exploded on our porch.
Not exactly.
Somebody got a summer hair cut.
Sadly, it wasn't Paul's beard.

Scooter feels much better now though.  His long border collie fur was starting to form dreads from all the trips he makes in and out of our creek all day to stay cool.
Dreads can lead to mats which lead to hot spots.
If you've ever had a dog go through hot spots, you know how unpleasant they can be.
So I decided to shave him.
He's much happier now!

So, are you changing his name to Yul? I hope not, I like Scooter...it suits him!

Oh, I so need to do this for my goldendoodle! He hates to be brushed and I can feel the mats forming all over the place!
