Short or long?


The Furlong dog needs clipping. So do us human Furlongs – the hairdresser comes to our house which is most convenient.

But it’s winter, and dog might get cold. Also I prefer the long hair, but Mr Furlong prefers the clipped look. What to do? Clipped is much easier to look after…so to clip, or not to clip – that is the question.

Bobby longbobby short

Clip I think!

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!

  1. I would go for clipped but mainly because it prevents knots. Neither I or any of my dogs liked the combing out of knots, and I simply didn’t have the patience to comb them every day. So I did just cut out the knots.
    This is, of course, an option for you if you want to leave the hair long. It generally doesn’t show, and there is absolutely no reason to feel guilty about it.


  2. Compromise and do a half cut. Long enough to keep warm and short enough not to tangle too badly.


Please do comment! That's part of the fun...
