Hoshi had a bath and trim. It’s cold out but I shaved him down since his coat was too long. He actually let me shave his legs and paws this time. He hates the electric clippers on his front legs for some reason. I figured out an easier way to do the bottom lip — He won’t hold still. I start from his chin and shave up to his bottom lip. That’s against the grain but it lets me get at his lip.
It was time for a bath. Hoshi was scratching and I wondered if he had fleas. I didn’t find any fleas. I trimmed his face, between his legs, paws, and butt. He’s resting right now. He hates having his paws and lips done. It’s difficult doing between his nose and eyes–there’s not much room. I left the length because it’s still cold out. I botched his tuft so I shaved it off–everyone admires his tuft.
Here’s a video of Hoshi having his breakfast this morning:
