harry and the haircut, take 2

you might be curious about how long it takes a tibetan terrier to grow his coat out.   well the answer is about 3 months.  we started to find mats in harry’s coat and decided to take him in for another summer trim. there are also a few sanitary reasons i won’t get into why we prefer to keep his coat shorter.

this time we selected a #5 razor (which was shorter than the first time).  in the pictures, his coat has grown out for about 1 week.

it’s taken him about a week as well to get used to his newly shorn look.  harry acted a bit odd the first few days post-cut.  it was almost like he felt exposed and less confident without all that hair.  we’ve also noticed that he seems to be more playful, less sleepy and more frisky since the hair cut (although certainly you can’t tell in these photos where he’s snoozing away).  maybe the shaggy coat has an anesthetic effect?

mixed berry crumb bars

we had a bit of a berry overload situation going on in the refrigerator, and i decided to deal with the matter by baking them into the blueberry crumb bar recipe i found over at smitten kitchen.

i pretty much followed the recipe to a tee, with two exceptions:

– i made the crust in a food processor rather than chunking it up by hand
– i used about 5 cups of mixed berries (consisting of cherries, blueberries & blackberries) but kept the sugar and lemon juice ratio the same.  hubs thought it was still a bit too sweet, so you might want to cut the sugar down further a tad!
