Scout and I decided to shave Lewis today. What a brilliant idea.
We did have some reasons for this decision, although looking back on it, we should have thought about it a little more.
We have friends that just shaved their yellow lab, and she looks great. However, we failed to consider that Lewis is actually half Springer Spaniel, so his hair isn't necessarily the same as a full bred Labrador (and all of his hair is white underneath!).
Also, Lewis sheds hair like a snake sheds skin...so sweeping is an everyday chore (well, I don't know how often a snake sheds skin, but whatever). This was actually our best reason for shaving Lewis...and I'm almost positive he won't be shedding any time soon.
So, enjoy the pictures of my formerly cute dog.
Once we started, we obviously couldn't stop:
