Oh My! Baxter and His First Haircut

So Mr. Baxter had his first haircut.  He had gotten so fluffy that I was convinced he was older and heavier than he really is.  He looks like baby Baxter again. 
We now think he looks a bit like a baby lion:  fluffy face and tail with a skinny little body.
We've been calling him baby Simba. 

However, some things never change.  He is almost impossible to photograph.  I get ready to take a shot and he's in motion. 
I finally resorted to holding him and trying to get a shot in the mirror.  And then you can't see what he looks like because he snuggles in.  The snuggling is mainly for body warmth.  The groomer said he gets chilled fairly easily.  She also said he barked so much that she knew he had to be tired. Yeah, right.  He was running in circles like a wild thing when we got home.
I'm pretty sure that Mr. B isn't the least bit embarrassed by his haircut.  He's still adorable and he knows it.

He's such a teeny, tiny. Our shih-tzu used to look so scrawny after his haircut- he was all fur just like Baxter. This little guy could fit in your shopping bag. Do you take him to the grocery store with you?
