This was our day today in pictures.
My daughter started out the day with this little one, who came in for his appointment one day early.
The owner had been chopping on the coat and he was a little matted.
This little guy has a horrible cottony coat that shows every scissor cut.
Jessica did a great job, and the owner loved the cut.
I started my day off with this sweet lady.
I would say that my backboard was useless with her.
At least she stood long enough for me to take the finish picture. :)
This little lady was groomed by Jess.
This is my 'I refuse to stand up' dog.
He also growls from the moment his feet hit the tub, till I pick him up to put him back in his kennel after he is finished.
At least he stands for the bath. :)
This little lady and the dog below are sisters.
They are two of my daughters favorite dogs to groom.
What a happy little lady she is.
I have been grooming this little lady for a long time.
She is so shy.
God help you if you pull a tiny, little snag in her hair.
This little girl can squeal so loud your ears ring for half an hour.
My daughter has been grooming this little guy since he was a puppy.
His Mom drops him off before work and picks him up after.
He stays awake all day, and never lays down.
He just watches everything all day.
He never barks.
We have never heard him bark.
His Mom says she can't believe it, because that is all he does at home.
My big, hairy beast.
My big, hairy, 'I don't like to stand anymore than a minute at a time.'
Did I mention that he is hairy?
And that he doesn't like to stand up?
I told my daughter that she cut her customers head off.
She complained to me that she did not have enough room to move back and take pictures of her dogs.
At least she cut the head off in the same place for both the before and the after picture. :)
This old lady has been chewing herself up.
So after I finished her I had to put the e-collar on her right away. :(
Another one of my daughters favorites.
I have posted about this Sheltie before.
She is the one that had all of her feathering hacked up by a groomer that didn't even ask the owners if it was okay to trim the feathering.
She had not ever had her feathering trimmed.
I don't believe that it will ever grow back.
I have been grooming her for awhile now, and the hair hasn't even started to grow back.
My daughter did not want to take pictures of this grooming, because the poor little thing has such a horrible coat due to medical issues.
I told her to take the picture because I think that she does a great job with what she has to work with.
Last but not least, my problem child.
He is still a work in progress, and boy was he in a mood today.
My arm still hurts.
I don't know if you can see it or not, but take note of what is written on his leash.
'Bad to the Bone'
No truer words have ever been spoken about a dog.
The thing is, you can't help but like him, because when he is not trying to eat you, he can be really sweet. :/
I kept him for my last dog of the day, because I don't have any energy left after grooming him.
That was our day.
How was yours?
Happy Grooming, MFF
