Like Velvet

Over the past few weeks Doppler has become a dirty dog. It’s one of the uglier effects of a Connecticut winter. Today the schmutz has been put in its place. Doppler got a furcut!

This not a walk-in event. Helaine carries her. Doppler is apprehensive as soon as she hears the other dogs–their sing-a-long already in progress.

The results make it worthwhile. She’s white. She’s fluffy. She weighs a less.

“Like velvet,” said Helaine, while softly stroking Doppler’s neck.

Like velvet, indeed.
