****Anyone have any advice on him biting his feet? I am not sure if he got too close of a cut on his feet but he seems to be biting them a lot (he never did before). Also he scratches at his ears which got shaved on the inside. Please let me know a good cure!!!! Not sure if soap left in the paws or loose hair?*****
Thank you all so much for your kind words! Unfortunately one family member will not adjust just yet... For example this person has been ignoring me LOL!!! And wont touch poor Norman. Very silly on their part but I have learned to stop caring what people think when it comes to my dog. I am the sole owner of Norman, paid for everything, so why should I let them control me feelings over a haircut? But what is most interesting is the fact that Norman can sense this person's emotions to where Norman will now not pay attention to this individual! He will walk by this family member and come straight to me now, not seeking any love or affection from them. I really think dogs have the ability to feel emotions and know when they are not wanted!
As for his color... He was originally all black with a few grey spots. Now.. BLONDE lol with a black face and grey spots. He is such a beauty that I never would have imagined me loving his blonde so much. I think blonde/creme pups are gorgeous but I have always been more attracted to black and dark browns. But now that Norman is blonde I have changed my mind!!! As he grew, those blonde roots came in quick! Looks more like his mama now, but his dads dark face lol.
He is as soft a velvet!!! His face to so clean that I have been none stop kissing his sweet little nose and face. I cannot resist this clean shave!!!!! I am so happy I did it! Granted, I still love the scruffy teddy bear look. But I think Norman is much happier without food and other gross things stuck in his face fur. I can see his happy face and smile and makes it so worth it.
Also, no more water dragged all on the kitchen floor! This was the biggest reason for shaving the face. The floor would be a POOL of water by 8 am! Even with the shaved face, I am still in habit of wiping his mouth with a towel after most of his drinks lol.
But thank you all again for your kind words. It makes me feel reassured I made the right choice, even though I love it! It is hard to be the only poodle-cut lover in a family of 5! Many WRONG opinions on how he looks
