At least he didn't give him a butt cut.

Aikane has a Beauty Day!

I've decided to try grooming him at home. The DNB has a set of ancient yard sale clippers, which I have seen before. And I know, theoretically, how to use them. This is going to be an adventure.

I put the piano bench in the middle of the kitchen and place Aikane on top of it. He does not love this. For the next twenty minutes, I buzz away his lovely locks. I'm surprisingly good with the clippers - his hair ends up mostly even.

Until the DNB starts meddling.

I reluctantly hand the clippers off to him while I finish trimming Aikane's tail. We finally stand back to admire our work.

"BABY!" I gasp. There is a long bald streak down Aikane's left side.

"Huh," he replies. "I guess that does show."
