I had a new furry customer in today.
I am actually glad that this customer was able to get in so close to Christmas. (due to a cancellation)
Meet one of the sweetest Schnauzers I have ever groomed.
She is 13 years old.
Her owner has been in the Hospital for the last year.
The lady that brought her in today has been fostering her till the owner can come home.
The dog has always been groomed by the owner.
The foster Mom has done a really great job of keeping the dog brushed out, but felt that it was time for a professional grooming.
The owner does not like any type of Schnauzer look.
She was so good on the tub.
She does have a bum back leg, so I let her sit most of the time.
Because she was 13 years old, and the foster owner was pretty sure that she had never been to a professional groomer before, I was afraid to use the high velocity dryer on her.
So I dried her with the hand dryer.
Thankfully her hair dried very quickly, and she was great for the brushing and drying.
Her foster mom told me to leave about 2½ inches.
I was also to leave the ears.
I just neatened them.
I was also to shorten the beard a little.
I also tried to blend where the foster mom had scissored her feet and back legs.
What a pure pleasure she was to groom!
She got a Christmas bow so she would look extra pretty when she went to visit her owner in the hospital. :)
I actually like the way her face and ears turned out.
It fits her.
