The old saying goes, "a man's got to know his limitations." Well, I certainly know mine now when it comes to dog grooming. I though, heck, I'm gonna try and save a little money, and give my poodle Ziggy a little haircut. I broke out my best trimming scissors, and started in. When I was done, I realized ... hey, I really don't know how to do this. Poor Zig. He ended up with his poof ball on the top of his head set way back. I mean he looked like a dog with a receeding hairline. It was clear even he thought it looked bad. He just slunk off into his kennel and gave me that look. You know the one - after he's been punished for something. Horrible.
The next day I called our groomer at Pretty Paws and begged for an emergency grooming intervention. Fiasco. He looks great now ... sans the botched poof ball head thing. I think I like him better with that short and tight ook anyway.
So maybe my LAST attempt at dog grooming wasn't a complete flop. What am I saying? Yes, it was.
Great thing about Zig, he doesn't hold a grudge. We're back to being besties again.
