Indulge Me

I have a sick habit of taking before and after pictures of Toby's haircuts. Don't believe me? Go here, here, here, and oh, here.

Toby gets his hair cut short for a variety of reasons.  First, its much cooler for him.  Second, his hair gets ratty and he hates to be brushed.  Third, he smells bad when his hair gets long. Fourth, and really the primary reason, he hates getting his hair cut, and for me the whole experience is really traumatizing. I would imagine it is similar to taking your oldest child to their first day of preschool and having them cling with panic to you while screaming "MOMMY DON'T LEAVE ME."  Plus when he gets home he hides under the bed for days.  Breaks my little heart.

This experience was so much better. Previously I had taken Toby to Pet Smart but the last time they CUT him and didn't TELL me and the would got INFECTED. So I had to find a new groomer.  This time I took Toby to where we take Kadira for doggy daycare and as per usual they were fantastic.  


Toby Before
(I believe they said "he looks like a little gremlin" upon entering the groomers.)


Toby After

I typically like his muzzle a little shorter, but Dan is begging me not to cut it myself. I have a tendency to just start cutting Toby's hair and leaving it a bit....shall we say...uneven. We'll see if I can hold out. Toby, on the other hand, is just happy to be able to see again.
