I'm late this year, as with most everything, in giving Speedbump her summer hair cut. I'm not a groomer but she doesn't care; she enjoys the attention. The other day I got out the shears and got it done. Mostly, I just thin her mane so she can get closer to the air conditioner vents - her first love. The hair I clip off her (a shopping bag stuffed full) I take and spread around the garden to keep varmints away.
