Now how will I dust under the furniture?

My MiniBella unfortunately had some matting issues due to my inexperience with Shih Tsu hair and her inexperience with sitting still for more than 1.2 seconds, so we had to start from scratch. She’s a little older and is calming down and I’ve learned patience with the comb (hello, I have boys), so hopefully this was a one time shot.

She’s a little embarrassed and didn’t want her picture taken, but even though she’s not fluffy right now, she’s still amazingly soft.

    even cuter than before and that’s saying something. I love the coy Princess Diana look she’s working on.

    I keep mine cut short as much as possible. Keeps them from dragging half a pine tree in with them everytime they go outside.

    She’s totally adorable with her hair cut short. :heart:

    Awww…she’s precious.

    Although I first read this as her having MATING, rather than MATTING issues.

    Freudian eyeballs, I haz dem.

    When I drafted the post I typed MATING before correcting it to MATTING.
