While I was in Chicago and Alan was in the hospital, we put the dogs, Toby and Roo, in the kennel. They got their Spring shave. This really cuts down on the dog hair, but they look like rats on long legs with fluffy tails. It takes a bit of getting used to. They were so glad to be back home and they curled up in balls on the couch. I love how they wrap their tails around themsleves. Annie, the female, is getting a bit old and does not grow hair very quickly so we only had her trimmed. She missed out on the photo opp.
