Not His Best Look
I bit the bullet and shaved Stevie and Alvin down on the same night. Alvin knew it was coming because I did Stevie first and Alvin responded by refusing to come inside and just had his head in the door while staring at me the whole time. He ended up doing pretty well. Of course, I sedated him. He is shaved way down, which will definitely help for the next three weeks, until his fur grows back at lightening speed. Unfortunately, I had to cut a lot of the fur off of his ears because he won't let me brush them and one of them was a tangled mess. He has such beautiful ears and I hate when cockers have their ears shaved, but I had to cut them way down so we can start over again. It isn't his best look. He has responded to the whole thing by going outside and refusing to come back in. He is boycotting me but I can abruptly end it by offering a treat. Poor little guy, I wish it could be easier for him.
