As was pretty obvious in yesterday's Wordless Wednesday, Lola underwent a slight makeover: she was hand-stripped for the first time since Septemberish, in preparation for the warmer weather of spring. It was a little difficult to tell from the final photo, but there was a lot of hair. Lola went from wooly and scruffy to smooth and soft, pretty much everywhere.
She's still a very strange looking dog, under all that fur.
Her thighs are pretty huge; her tail, even stripped down, is squirrelly and strange; she has a really large chest that turns dramatically into a tiny loin; her front legs are slightly bandy, and her forefeet turn outward a little (though they're not as bad as I worried they might get when they started turning out); and her topline (though it has levelled over the last few months) remains odd looking.
Yeah, strange dog. But she's my dog.
