Jeremy's hair cut

Jeremy is half the dog he was! Jeremy has such long beautiful curly hair but all of a sudden, it got really hot here in New Jersey and a few days ago, I gave him a good grooming and cut off all his curls. He feels the heat terribly and he's so much cooler now. I miss those beautiful curls but he's much more comfortable this way. I'll probably need to give him another cut for July and August. Of course, now it's gotten cold here again but the warm days will be back soon and he's all ready for them. Here's the before photo:

And here's his new cool look - it may not be exactly professional but I'll get better at it:

I'm really proud of the way he let me groom him. Three months ago, when he was still at the farm, I tried to brush him and he snarled at me. That was one of the days I really had doubts about adopting him. I wondered if I wouldn't even be able to brush him, how would I be able to take care of him properly? But I'm so glad that didn't stop me from bringing him into my life. Once I brought him home, I kept brushing him a little every day and now it's no problem at all. He wasn't sure about the clippers when I first started using them but he was so patient. I've never used clippers, except for a little clipping I did on him last month, so it took me quite a long time to completely groom him. And he never jumped off the table. Of course, he was getting treats every time I finished with a section! He's a good, smart dog and has come a long way in the last three months. He went on a two-hour walk through the Avon Town-wide Garage Sale yesterday and was a true gentleman to everyone he met! I'm very proud of him.

Again, my heartfelt thanks to Rescue Ridge for bringing this dog into my life.

Oh gosh, he is so cute! I have two dogs of my own but I just can't get enough of them.
