I’m sure many of you are sitting on the edge of your seat hoping for an Alfie update. It’s been awhile since we talked about him on this little blog but don’t worry, there’s always lots to say.
This week has been a pretty booked week for Alfie. He got his first haircut – three baths – and he swam for the first time. He’s also had a friend over for the week – Princess Leia.
They play like crazy and then they sleep. Repeat 47 times throughout the day and night and you get two tired pup lovers wishing for a peaceful night of rest. They have definitely kept us entertained though.
So anyways, on Tuesday we decided it was time to give Alfred’s ears a trim. It was getting HOT out and he was starting to shed so we thought a trim around the face would be good. So on Wednesday morning we began the grooming process.
We took off significantly more hair than I expected and afterwards – after Alf started to dry we realized that his head was now three times too small for his big poofy body. So we decided to trim his whole body. He’s pretty happy with it I think. He’s much cooler and now he looks more like a puppy and less like a bear. I don’t have any great after pictures yet because we went to camp yesterday but I do have one of him and leia in the car. You can sort of see the difference.
So happy haircut for the Alf man. We are excited about less hair – which hopefully means less shedding.
As mentioned before, Alf also experienced the water for the first time. We were out at Westminster Woods and Mike decided to put Alfie’s feet in a little bit. After he pulled him out of the water and set him on the dock Alf jumped in all on his own! That little daredevil. He was thankfully a great swimmer.
