Because a Cavalier’s fur is supposed to be left untrimmed, I had been trying to avoid giving Toby a haircut. A trim here and there to remove matted fur is all he has had so far. Unfortunately his ears keep getting really gross because he dips them in his water fountain, in his food, in the mud, etc. Instead of resigning myself to giving him multiple baths per week, I finally trimmed his ears. He looks pretty ridiculous now, it’s true, and I’m not sure if I’ll do it again when they grow out, but for now at least he requires a bit less maintenance. I imagine getting baths in the winter must be pretty unpleasant for a dog anyhow.
Really, I don’t appreciate that you did this to me.
Toby just has a really goofy expression in this picture!
