bogey: before and after

Filed under: Uncategorized — ladyofmaine @ 2:53 pm

dsc_16612I let Bogey’s hair grow all winter so he’ll be warm enough since we rarely turn the forced hot air furnace on here. R and I just add more layers if we get chilly and Bogey’s hair grows and grows.dsc_1652

At this time of year it’s 40-50 degrees at night and warm to hot during the day so Bogey gets his first summer clipping. It is comfortable for him and gives him a month for his hair to grow enough to keep him comforable in a northern spring.

Here he is right after the deed; doesn't he look perky?

A ground squirrel or some kind of varmint lives under the concrete walk by our house and Bogey has spent many hours this year trying to catch him.

the ol' "snout in hole" trick


But at the end of the day he remains…

  1. His bat ears don’t look as batty with long hair. I think he looks more like an old man with long hair.

  2. Those are great photos of the old Boge! He does look like an old shaggy man in the before pics.

  3. That is what I always liked about schnauzers; that old man look…and they are such characters! Actually, I like his looks better when his hair is grown out but it requires a lot of work and he really hates to be brushed. All those nether hairs are fine and mat easily.
