It’s hard to imagine that the two photos feature the same dog. With the advent of warmer weather, Skye was certainly feeling the heat and the burden of carrying around her thick winter coat. She was obviously uncomfortable in the hot sun, and every time she came inside after being out, she was covered with sticky cottonwood husks and other particles that she picked up on her fur. Once inside she dropped them and spread them all over the house.
Yesterday we took her over to Ann’s to get a haircut. We hardly recognized her after the deed was done, but she smells so good from the shampoo, and her coat is very soft to the touch. I’m sure she is a lot more comfortable.
