Millie Mae's hair is difficult to manage. The hair is so soft and fine it is prone to getting tangled, especially around her collar or in areas where her skin rubs. She is a pretty active dog and we give her at least one or two baths every week. During and after her showers, we try to blow her dry and brush out the mats, but it's difficult. This Saturday was her scheduled haircut and unfortunately some of the mats were so thick that she had to be shaved in those areas. To keep things somewhat consistent, the groomer cut her hair fairly short overall. It's such a difference, she almost looks like an entirely different dog!
