It is summer here in Australia and so many people have their dogs shaved or trimmed. I decide not to because I have a Cavalier with pretty red and white hair and frankly many of the hair cuts I have seen on Cavaliers here are dreadful. I groom Bella regularly to get rid of the undercoat and she is an inside dog. She isn't matted, and I feel like saying "If I trim her then she will look like YOUR dog!" I love the way Bella looks and I don't want to ruin it by trimming her!
