Summer 'Do's

After a 9-hour day and a 62-mile round trip, Misty and Zephyr are sporting their new summer 'do's.

All that's really noticeable about Misty's 'do is that it's snow white.  What you can't see is that she's down from 112 lbs. to 110 because the groomer "defurminated" 2 pounds of hair!  Misty doesn't get a crew cut because without a nice coat of fur on her back, her pink skin would sunburn.  Also, according to Sasha the groomer, as Pyrs get older their coats tend not to grow back if they're shaved.  Who wants a patchy Pyr?

I don't know how many pounds of hair got shaved off Zephyr, but as usual, her summer 'do makes her feel light and happy.
She has just enough ruff that  when she lies in the right position, it camouflages the fact that she could stand to lose even more weight.  Very nice job, Sasha!
