So, Ray slept with us last night...under the comforter, between Mommy and Daddy. Before his hair cut he always went to the foot of the bed after a brief cuddle. I woke up and found him partially uncovered and shivering. It took about ten minutes of cuddling to get him warm. Poor baby. But, this morning he was in good spirits...happy flag raised over his back.

Well, the wool sweater is gone, but the cotton sweater I had for Ru is too small, he is wearing it but it isn't good enough. I bought him a nice cotton sweater, a Zack and Zoey cotton hoody and a Zack and Zoey quilted jacket.
All on e-bay. Tomorrow I can go to the doggie boutique, but it isn't all that easy to find cotton. Until his new duds arrive, he will be sleeping with us.

As for the spitting up....I have had dogs spit up occasionally for decades, they have never been sick, so I don't worry about it. If it happened more than once, I would be worried, but that was on Thursday, and he hasn't done it since.

Poor Ray, I guess it is like being naked for him. He had really long thick hair, so it will take some big time adjusting.

For now, lots of affection and good treats should bring my old Ray-Bone back.

Thank you for your support and suggestions.

Sorry I'm late to the party, Sylvia, although this is more of a piti-ful party. Poor Ray. I'm so glad he's doing better today. I think what everyone says is right and the new clothes will help. If you have any old cotton or acrylic sweaters you might be able to do what Tori one did with a sleeve - cutting openings though since Ray is bigger it might be more the body of a small sweater. Just saying until the new clothes come. You just want something functional and comfortable. Guess that will be Ray's last shave down ever.

Good idea! I'll let you know what I come up with. Thanks, Sue.

I don't doubt that you would do that, or worse, Celeta. Ray, however, is a GOOD boy.

Feeling better still. He is lying on the sofa with MiMi, not hiding upstairs.

Our neighbor shaves his Golden Retriever at the beginning of every summer. For about two weeks Dublin will try to hide behind his Daddy when they are outside. I think they really get embarrassed.

Maybe he's just sulking and milking the attention for what it's worth while he can, he's a smart boy.

I thought he was making progress. Well, he was. He wasn't hiding upstairs. DH went to Petco (a long drive) and bought him a very nice sherpa coat to keep him cozy. Sigh...he freaked. He ran away from me before I could finish fastening it. Once I got it fastened he ran upstairs. I found him sitting up in my bed trembling. I took it off...now he is naked again. I think the sound of the velcro closures scared him. Sigh.

I need a vacation!

Rylee does tha ttoo when i first buzz him down , shivers but then I cuddle him in the blankets and he settles right in and relaxes and falls asleep. Maybe he has a "Samson complex" all his strength is in his hair?

Samson complex...that could be it. All I know is that he had better get his head on straight, because I am not the kindest mommy in the world, and I am getting tired of this neurotic behavior. I have done everything to make him happy and comfortable. Right now, I am at my wits end with him.
