Hair. I have too much of it. When I first came to Denver, I was a mess. Big knots. My new owners didn’t pinch me and pull my hair out with brushes. No. They took me to a nice groomer and got me a haircut. No wires. No bristles. No pain. They loved me at the grooming place. They said I was an angel.

Now my owner mom always wants to brush me. She tried different brushes. She even cuts my hair with little round scissors—which I allow for a few minutes.

I’m not a mean doggie. Not a danger doggie. But whenever someone brushes me, I have to bite them. I can’t help it. For a while Justin lived with us. He would hold me down while my owner mom brushed and tortured me. That’s why I growl at him sometimes when he comes to visit. So he doesn’t get any ideas.

Today my mom cut off lots of my hair. I didn’t mind cause she was very gentle about it. Arrow likes to eat my hair. Of course. But I don’t think this haircut is going to win any prizes. She says in a few weeks it looks about the same.

Arrow has a good amount of hair. But he is my opposite in every way. Big ears that stick up. I have normal sized ears that flop down. I have a big feathery tail. His was cut off!! He likes everyone. I’m more particular. I know my name and come when people call me. He—oh well, you get the idea. Arrow likes being brushed!

I think you look cute being fluffy. Your hair must be tasty for Arrow to eat it

I don't like being brushed very much either, so I know how you feel!

Hi Deefor,
Man, I'm so glad I don't gotta get brushed. My sis Trudy FREAKS out when Mama and Dad brush and cut her hair. But I gotta admit it must be fun to be able to change your "look" every now and again. It gets kinda boring looking the same all the time. I'm hoping someday Mama will get some Manic Panic and dye some of my white hair bright red!

hi Deefor, we understand the dilemma about hair. we have a lot of hair too -- and it's very curly - almost impossible to brush. our mom cuts our hair very short and then she doesn't have to brush it. we like it that way too. we don't like brushing. we like rolling in the mud. that isn't wrong, is it?
