Writer on a Horse
And a Dog

The world looks better from the back of a horse and the roads of life are easier with a good dog beside you.

Summer in the south

The steady dome of mosquitoes, snakes, ticks and jiggers waiting for you in the grass and tress and....... clipped down dogs.

I'm putting a before picture and after.

Now you might ask why we do this... well it's not really to make them cooler but it is to control hair on everything. The black one, Levi, has a hotspot on his side. Southern dogs have to live with all the things above just like their masters. One thing extra is the rain and humidity causes infections in their skin and the hair hold the infection and your dog can have really painful spot before their masters even know about it. Better to make it were you can see their skin and stay on top of things.

I think the haircut made Lilly's ears grow. Does she look like she's going to take off at any time.

Don't you wish in Southern summers we could just sit around in our birthday suits like dogs? Well, yeah, we can but it tends to keep the people away...at least I would scare em off!
