Today Ari went in for his first grooming. I had always sworn I would never have a dog that needed this much pampering, but alas I have one. The good news is most golden doodles don't shed. The bad news is every 3 months or so they must be trimmed.
He had gotten to look like a raggedy mess as his hair continued to grow, so it was time. We took him to Muddy Mutts, where Hindy (a groomer of 35 years) did her magic. Three hours later it was much more obvious that he is indeed 70% poodle.
This is just one more critical step toward Ari's adulthood. I wonder if he knows how good he looks with his new haircut?
