Decided to the make the dog's haircut a DIY project over the weekend.  She's old and doesn't do well with the groomer anymore, so I bought some new clippers and away went.

Here's the before of Wicket...

And the after...

And, of course, the resulting pile of hair, seen here with one of our other dogs for scale.

That's a lot of hair.  We were both exhausted after that haircut, but she's a lot happier and much more comfortable in this Sacramento heat.
