You know it's hot outside when Jackson's tongue is out in almost every picture.

I wasn't really planning on taking any pictures today, but my little sister just got home (they were on vacation for the weekend) and wanted me to play with her outside and I was about to die (can't stand humidity) and so was Jackson, LOL.

But he posed for me for a bit. He had off leash privileges for the most part because it was so hot I knew he wasn't going anywhere.

I AM THE KING OF THE WORLD... err, at least this stump.






I swear, Jackson is in amazing shape and even when his hair grows out a little bit (not totally shaved), he looks chubby to me here. *shrugs* He's not, I swear, haha!




EVIL face. He's up to something.




My happy boy. <3


Nawww, there's my handsome man.


more....

I'm a big fan on Jackson. He's looking handsome as always. :)

Is there a name for the cut you keep him in? I've never seen another dog trimmed that way (short ears and body but longish on the sides of the face) but I really like it. It seems low maintenance but still cute where it counts. ;p I've been debating with my bf about getting a nonshedding breed next so it would be nice to know how to communicate that cut to the groomer.

Hehe, thanks! And yes he's super low maintenance, honestly. I rarely brush him and he drys so quickly - he never really gets THAT messy, and no tangles, etc. He does see the mobile groomer about once every 8 - 10 weeks. I do it more often in the summer, but I like him really short. I really have never called it a particular name, but I guess it would be similar to a Westie cut.

This is the day of him being groomed:


And here:


The costs suck for a dog that needs to be groomed (unless you can do it yourself) but there are benefits too. I really begin to appreciate him after dog sitting for a shedding dog, LOL. But I know I'll have a shedding breed again in the future but for now I'm really digging the non-shed.

Thanks! I knew it reminded me of something. It does look a lot like how westie's are trimmed. Personally I would be happy with another shorthaired terrier mix but he's interested in not having dog hair everywhere (I don't blame him) so I've also been looking at the Havanese and also various terriers that are nonshedding or low shedding (wirehaired). I do fear that if we kept a nonshedding dog's hair long it would cause allergy issues. He's weirdly allergic to longhaired dogs (shedding and nonshedding) so we can only assume it's because of allergens that get trapped in their long coats. Anyway, sorry for the hijack. ;p

I love Jackson! He is so adorable all of the time! All your photos are great! :)

I too like his trim ... something to keep in mind for my Eddee ... though I love the shaggy look on little terriers too! I got lucky because Eddee does only shed a very minimal amount and does not mat at all!
