Bending down and combing Brooklyn for an hour every second day was kind of hard on the back, so I decided to take her to a doggie groomer for a bath, blow dry, and trim, with emphasis on removing the heavy undercoat that Retrievers get.. Note the long belly hair and excess leg hair. Nope, I did not opt for the wax job. :-}
The next three photos are the after shots. She looks a lot better and hopefully, a lot cooler.
It will be a shame to take her over to the park and swim her.
