Yesterday, after I cleaned the pool, and found balls of shed fur, clogging up the pipes, we decided it was time flint got his very first hair cut. We have actually been debating about doing this, for quite some time now, though Flint, being Flint, is not exactly the calmest. After watching a video tutorial, we felt we were ready. The three of us brought him outside, on a leash, two held him, one shaved him. We took turns, rotating: I hold his butt, I talk to him in soothing whispers, I shave him, and so on. In the end, he was pretty good, and we accomplished what we came to do. He looks rather ravishing, and I am sure Woof, his boyfriend, will be very glad to see him looking so.
