Sunni has always had a long, beautiful, thick tale (until the winter that Cali ATE IT OFF!!!), which as about two years ago. I'd been watching it grow out and noticed that it was touching the ground, so Sunday I gave him a trim. I wasn't sure how he would react to the scissors, since he's pretty flighty, but he sniffed them and went back to eating, so snip, snip, snip I went! I'm pleased that he didn't run away and stood quietly.
