I love looking at my Bentley's long silky coat but admit I am not a diligent brusher (shame on me). Its hot here, days and weeks over 100 degrees here in the Northern Calif Valley.
So, this week he was clipped. Left his long ears and tail but he was clipped very short. He looks adorable and he seems to be very happy with his haircut. The purists may shake their heads but now I have that same darling face and not have to wait hrs and hrs for him to dry after a bath. He hated brushing that I think he would say thanks if he could. I really had no idea their hair grew so long and so fast, should have done more research - but have found a solution that Bentley and I agree on - less hair means less brushing, shorter baths and those short trips outside away from the air conditioning are more tolerable.
Love my cavvie !! Short hair and all.
