I’ve gotten some skepticism that Davout’s hair is a bit out of control. His normal pictures don’t often show the problem because his hair fades out of view.
This shows it a little better…remember I’ve hacked quite a bit of hair off his front already this weekend.
It shows up better when he stands up, since the long hair under his belly and on the sides hands down like a pair of shower curtains. You only see the tips of his toes sometimes. He even has long light hair growing on the inside of his front legs.

At the moment I’m leaning towards trying the vet and finding out if they can do something between a lion and the sanitary trim. He kinda knows the people there, and there wouldn’t be dogs so he might handle it better than a regular groomer. Of course, the last time he was there he had teeth removed, so maybe not.
