One thing about having a labradoodle (or perhaps a Standard poodle, we’re not sure) is that you get two dogs for the price of one. Overnight Shadow goes from teddy bear to greyhound, from cuddly. . .
to this crow-like. . .
All it takes is a simple (but not cheap) trip to the groomer’s.
My spouse prefers the shaggy version. But he doesn’t usually do the floors. And even he admits that when Shadow’s hair is long, he becomes a vector for leaf transference. As well as dirt, grass, burrs, and everything else his sticky coat touches.
So now that spring has finally inched it way to the mountain, we took Shadow to the groomer. And we’re sure we came home with the same dog.
Well, pretty sure. . .
