Piper is a Wire Fox Terrier. She doesn’t shed, which is great, but the trade-off is that we need to bring her to the groomers for a clipping a few times a year.
Back in November we decided to let Piper grow a winter coat. Not only would it keep her nice and cozy during the cold months, but it would be cheaper too. Fast forward to yesterday; her winter coat had grown into an uncontrollable fuzzy mass, a thick nose-to-tail shag carpet that was making her look like a doggie version of Chewbacca. Or Bigfoot. I’m not sure which, but the situation was getting a little out of control.
Just look at this mop top.
And here she is after her visit to the groomers! She was noticeably happier to get rid of the deadweight. She practically flew home, smiling all the way. (I love how dogs smile.)
In case you’re wondering, we bring her to Masters n’ Dogs (formerly known as Bark & Fitz) in Westboro. Ask for Lena! She does a great job. It’s like having a whole new Piper!
