Photo Friday #10

The Haircut!
Living in the body of a 70 pound Goldendoodle with 5 pounds of hair can get quite uncomfortable this time of year!  Therefore, it's time for the dreaded hair cut!  I say "dreaded" because not only is it sad to see those beautiful golden 4 inch curls fall to the ground, I also shed a tear after the SECOND HOUR of still cutting!!  You heard me correctly!!  No matter how often you brush these guys there is always a continuous web of knots running curl to curl along their entire body, and that goes without saying it's not very trimmer friendly!

The beautiful before photo!!  Max is nice and soft and cuddly, but VERY VERY HOT!!!
