so cuuuuuuuuute! what do you call that haircut? it's adorable! also love your carpet... heh heh... :D

LMAO Techno Are you an animal print person? The border on my wall matches the carpet too.. And a few of Ciders toys as you can see match as well.. lol

Her haircut is honestly me playing.. An afghan breeder friend told me it's only fur and it grows back, so I took her suggestion and tried to cut her in a way that I thought accentuated her, rather than a standard clip. My Mom thinks it's beyond weird, lot of people think it's cute. I'm going to let her ears grow out now.

i confess, i confess! love animal print! :D i won't go into details but let's just say, if i laid down on my carpet in my nightie, i would disappear :D

would love to see more photos of cider's "do", looks so cool! does she like being clipped? :thumbs up

She's finally okay with clipping.. I've scissored her -read *badly* Since before she was my dog.. Always looked like the weed wacker kicked her bum..

Neighbour gave me her clipper set, so I've done Cider 3x now.. (this is the first time I've felt comfortable doing it.. though it's been more cleaning up and shaping her into a cut rather than trimming her down now) I did the neighbours sheltie in an all over trim down to try to help her out, went okay but she's an old girl and wasn't amused, was a happier dog the next day though..

I gave up my leopard print nightie.. Was so big it was falling off in a really bad way.. *tear* I'm all about the animal print too, lol.

Cider is pretty good putting up with me grooming her. I think she's learned it's 'extra special attention' plus I give tiny treats along the way..
I am still learning though, and it isn't as perfect as I'd like it to be, but it's coming, and she's willing. She seems to prance at times, maybe she knows she looks hot? lol

Wow.. it's so hard to take dog pics... The noise makes her move, but she's been a doll about letting me take pics. When I brought the camera home she was all up in the box wanting to see..
Guess I should be all greatful I vaccumed a few days ago.. Could show the world my dirty carpet AND messy room all together..

I was thinking the same thing! she DOES look grumpy... but oh so adorable at the same time!

awwww, what a cutie! She looks like a littlle miss Fancy-Pants!

ahhhh she's sooo cute!And I love what you did with the cut,it's like she's wearing those big fluffy boots. I love her grumpy face,maybe SHE doesn't like the cut.When I was a kid,we had a cocker just like her,puppy,and everytime he would get a shave,he was embarress for days.

LMAO thanks guys.

When I tried to take other angles of Cider's cut for Techno she got the grump on.. Especially asking her to stand for a few seconds. Think she was also jealous I wanted to play with my cam and not

She is pretty feathery to the touch...

Think Cider was 2" long in early May when I started to play with her.. I'm sure Bailey notices long versus short. My neighbours's sheltie does. She was upset with me grooming her.. next day she had more energy than I've seen in a while, and kept licking me.. I wondered if it was a 'thank you'..

Cider looks so cute. It looks like she has on a pair of Ugg boots, very stylish! ;)

Mafiaprincess,sure Bailey notices,in the early spring when she had a cut,she was like a new dog,even puppy-like.
She has about 1 inch long lashes,her fur now is about 2 inches,but she's really curly and wavey.
I wish I knew how to give her a trim.

What a cutie! She looks supremely pissed off in all of her photos, which just adds to her charm!
