Sadly I have to postpone Zacharys grooming appointment that is this month probably until the first week of march. We are getting so close to my due date and I just have no one to get him up there and back at this time. (Driving is impossible right now and with an extremely active poodle well that is just a bad combination)
But I figure with the winter being the coldest winter we have had in years (and in Zacharys lifetime...it hasn't been above freezing in quite some time we had 2 straight weeks where it didn't get above 17 degrees. Its actually going to get up to 45 by the end of the week but then drop again over the weekend)
I figure that a close cut right now would honestly not be a good idea anyway.
So if we let him go another month, do you think he will be too terribly uncomfortable? We had him last groomed 3 days before Thanksgiving.
We used to keep him shaggy year round but now we keep him in a close cut.
Two questions: Hair is getting in his eyes, would it be okay to trim that back a little? And what is the best way to safely do that?
And when his fur gets longer and he has a bowl movement some of the poo does get stuck in the longer fur around his bottom, is there a way to prevent or lessen that chance of that happening? (Its not an anal gland thing, just a long fur thing)
This is how he currently looks by the way:
This is how we like to keep him: (but its too cold and a good grooming right now isn't possible)
This is how we used to keep him up until a few months ago (so I feel a few more weeks shouldn't bother him, right)....he won't be anywhere near this long
He won't be too uncomfortable do you think
