Wow, that first picture looks remarkably like a picture I have of my old dog Conar. How much does Lui weigh? Conar was about an even 100 pounds. Lui makes me really miss my old boy, he's gorgeous.

100 pounds! wow! thats what, about 50kg?
Lui is about 25kg, about 50 pounds? i think, not sure on pounds-kilograms stuff
But yes, they look quite similar, Lui looks that fluffy when he's fully coated, i've got a few where he looks very close to that pic you have which I will post soon.
But Lui has also been quite light. A couple of years ago at his annual vet trip the vet said he needed to put on some weight, he was about 22-23kg at the time, and now I think he's all good. He's always been quite lean, people think he's huge but then we bath him and he shrinks!
Can I ask how old Conar was? Lui's great aunt and grandmother lived till 14 1/2 and 15 1/2 so fingers crossed Lui will too. He's 7 1/2 at the moment

Lui is quite handsome with or without long hair.

THANK YOU! I think all the dogs on here are! But can someone please say they prefer him with hair, people that saw him with his poodle cut thought he looked better, but I prefer him with it long.

I did read what you said Thanks, because it took me a while to get used to!
The hair thing isn't too bad though, it stays clean because mud etc just dries and falls off, and once I found the right comb the hair was really easy. We've got a few brushes but I've figured the only good ones are the ZoomGroom and the metal comb, they work brilliantly on him.
It would be easier with permanent short fur though, even though it would look weird. Mum was happy when it was short because it meant he didn't leave hair everywhere, so that's a huge benefit to short haired dogs, like yours.

I'm one of the few who will come right out and say I love his long coat and am thankful that it is growing back in quickly!

People keep telling me to shave my Aussie in the summer and I keep telling them their absolutely nuts.

I love long hair on dogs. (Obviously) I think he looks stunning with hsi full coat and it's a shame that he was shaved. (Though he can pull off that look too)

A groomer once wanted to know if we wanted to shave Trey... uh.... no....
