 Hi Laura Lee,
 We have done that with Chancy in the summer. Took him down to a 1 1/2 inch
puppy clip all over. He was in dog heaven! Never seen him so happy!  His
coat grows back correctly very fast. Speaking of Chancy.. got him home from
the groomers last night. Couldn`t believe it was the same dog! I have found
that most rare of commodities...a groomer who is an artist with collies.
Man, can this lady groom! I`ve had groomers bath and brush before, but this
lady sculpted him so prettily. And he`s so cute with his red ribbon on!
Grin.
 Zip`s got a wonderfully correct coat. I may remove the hair from hsi hot
spot. It`s a small spot and the surrounding coat is long and will protect
it.
 Best,
 Karen
