Doggy hairdresser

Being a Border Terrier cross, I have never had to bother with grooming parlours and fancy hair clipping, but Jake here, being one of those fancy dogs with soppy curls and stuff, needed to be spruced up now that his coat has grown back, so Jenny took him off to the doggy hairdressers this morning for his short back and sides.
As Jenny has never had a 'cissy' dog before, she didn't know what to expect, so imagine her surprise - and mine - to see this finished result after three hours of crimping!
He didn't look too happy about his new look and I did hear Jenny say she thought he looked like Gromit, whoever he is.
What a girl!

I sometimes wonder if the people at these dog grooming places actually know what the breeds are meant to look like. Poor Jake.

Hmmmmm; I kinda prefer the natural look myself. Preferably scruffy!

I was disappointed with it, to be truthful. What I really wanted was for the hair around his eyes to be clipped and his coat to be tidied up but they went the whole hog. We won't be going back.

That's like giving John Prescott a mohican!

Do you know, that's a perfect description, YP! :)

Poor Jake, I hope that you gave him an extra biscuit! xx

Poor Jake, he really looks fed-up. I reckon he is doing some serious plotting now to find something good to roll in! When we used to go and collect our dog we would often be amazed at his latest 'do', often looking like a different breed. He used to come home and have a good roll round the lawn and garden. Said it all!

Whoever did that obviously fancied themselves as a budding Vidal Sassoon, giving Jake a Mary Quant look!

Jennyta said...

It's probably a good thing that he doesn't look in mirrors, Flighty. ;)

Jennyta said...

He is looking a bit better already, Wendy. :)

You could be right, SP!

I would rather go to the dentist than the hairdresser any day. I know that I will come out looking as I did when I went in.

Jennyta said...

Without wishing to cause offence, CW, that is odd, very odd. ;)

he looks unhappy with the result of his hair cut. 2 days ago my hubby also trimmed Polly's(our shit tzu dog) hair because of the too hot weather now.The result not good but it help her to stop sweating too much.

Jennyta said...

He does but I think he soon got over it, Becca. ;)

Jennyta said...

Ain't it just, John! :)
