She is basically a non-shedding dog, which is very low maintenance, but I guess the trade off is that I have to brush her. She's fairly cooperative, but still resists me a little bit.
A friend send me a link to a blog called "Simply Seleta" where they gave their goldendoodle, Pippi, a hilarious haircut! They live near a creek and so their dog was always getting so muddy, which caused her to get very matted. When they took the dog to the groomer, the groomer said she would have to be shaved basically to the skin. They came up with this compromise:
She reminds me of an 80s hair band.
This family was sad to shave their goldendoodle down, but they had a great sense of humor about it!
For now, I hope to keep my little furball..."fluffed"...so I guess I'll bump up my brushing regimen.
