It's time for a haircut

|

Hobie's fur suddenly grew a lot. Especially now that it's starting to rain more, it's not that much fun with a shaggy dog. Since Hobie gets to play a lot, he also gets dirty a lot, and we have to rinse off his paws almost every time he goes out.

The above picture is from nearby Alamo Square Park. The slightly darker color on the fur around his paws is not an optical illusion - it's dirt. Dirt that gets worked into the carpet, and dirt that gets left on top of our bed (that's where Hobie sleeps during the day).

We want to take him to a new groomer, because the place we've been taking him to, kind of botched the job last time. They managed to cut his ear, so it bled a little bit. Not a lot, but still. His eyebrows were also a little off. All in all, we were a little iffy. The people there were friendly, but that doesn't help much when they actually cause physical harm to Hobie.

We're going to try Kate's Cat and Dog Salon next.

Haircut!

It's been three months since Hobie went to the groomer's. Gladys wanted to try a new groomers, so we went to VIP Grooming in Noe Valley.

When Hobie's fur gets long he can get pretty shaggy. This is how he looked late February at a local park.

Fortunately, he didn't look like that this morning when we took him for his 8 a.m. appointment.

Hobie before

We told the people there that he wasn't very sociable, so they put him in a kennel. There were two or three dogs just walking around there. Hobie got a little worried, so he started barking. He kept barking for several minutes after we left the groomer's, we could hear him a block away.

Anyways, we picked him up, and he looked much better.

Hobie is now groomed!

He was so happy to see us that he could barely stand still. He just kept spinning around and around and around.
