Hair cut for Sherman

Our little Sherman is a long-haired dachshund. He has only been groomed once, and his hair was getting pretty long (especially the hair around his bum; he was bound to start getting dingleberries soon). He is always tracking around pieces of grass and leaves in his hair. Plus, it's going to get warm soon, and he'll be really hot. And, I wanted to see if he was really fat or if he was just poofy. So, I finally convinced Doug that he needed a hair cut. Doug tried to trim him with his clippers, and they quickly died. However, we got some animal clippers (which Doug will now use to cut his hair), and gave him a hair cut. Here is a "before" picture:

And here is an "after" picture. No, not the prettiest hair cut, and not what I was expecting. But it gets the job done! I don't know why Doug trimmed the hair on his back legs and not the hair on his front legs. He still needs some trimming. But he's still very soft and looks much smaller than he used to.
And here is the hair in the bath tub where Sherman patiently sat for his hair cut.
