A Disgruntled Doggy!

Fred is a hairy monster! His legs have lovely westie trousers on them, and his belly has a lovely westie skirt....... unfortunately for Fred, and all his own doing I might add, it is very, very matted.
The reason? you ask. Freds intense dislike of the brush. So much so, he will run and hide even if he hears you lifting it from the shelf.
An so, the result of this brush phobia? Fred has to be shorn like a sheep!
OK, yes, he does look smart, but he is not my little westie without his trousers and skirt, and it is most disconcerting to see all of his 'bits' dangling and wobbling when he walks LOL

His coat will grow back, and in the meantime, we are trying to rid him of his phobia by gently brushing his belly when he rolls over for us, but somehow I think this stubborn little bow-bow will have his own way and will we losing his coat again in the not too distant future!


  1. we have our dogs shaved as they are comb phobic too

  2. I have to have my yorkie cropped short as he bites the brush!

  3. Aah, he's so cute. My sister's Westie, Max, has the same treatment as Fred from time to time. They do look funny when they have just been clipped!!!

  4. Lovely photos of Fred, Jo - I must admit he looks cuter with his hair! Love Mom x

  5. It's all about the boundaries!! Ask Sally Ann!!!
