Au Naturel or The Puppy Pelt or The Dale Fro

It has been brought to my attention that my hair is getting a bit... LONG.

I'm quite wiry, I have the kind of fur that can get quite scratchy when I get really good and dirty (which is as often as I canine-ly can). When I'm freshly washed, however, it's really quite soft and furry. Wavy rather than curly. I do get brushed on regular occasions - regularly enough that the brush already bears the bruises of my chewing on it when dad isn't looking. And a few bite marks from where I made contact during several brushing sessions.

I haven't had a single haircut ever. I keep hearing about them, tho. It's not something that I'm looking forward to, even though I see how cute other puppies look with a nice clipping. Mom and dad seem to be looking into such things much more lately than they did before - mom is determined that I go somewhere "nice", which just leads me to believe that this clipping thing is something overwhelmingly unpleasant, so much so that mom feels the need to overcompensate with the treats and loving in advance...

I prefer to think of myself as a free spirit, going au naturel, letting the puppy pelt grow, letting my dale fro fly....

So we'll see how long I can divert the humans' attention from this grooming thing. Bathing is enough for a natural beauty such as myself...

Power to the Puppy!!!

Love,

Bogart
