It's that time of year, when the weather warms up and little man needs a clipping. Cairn terriers have a double coat and should be hand-stripped. However, we started opting for a clip when we left Ollie's birthplace of England for the return home to Texas in June 2013. After spending his first two years in a moderate climate, I'm sure he wondered if we were moving into a danged furnace.

Now it's our annual May ritual, the great clipping of the typical shaggy Cairn coat. As always seems to be the case, the groomer heard SCALP instead of clip and so it will take a while for Ollie to resemble anything other than a shorn sheep or naked mole rat. Maybe it's just my imagination, but I think he looks a bit sad that he lost his coarse coat. Or maybe like a doggy WTF, I didn't sign up for this bare look.
