Whoops!


I have mentioned in the past that Morgan got me a new puppy for Valentine's Day.  Well, his little puppy hair was getting shaggy so I decided I would give him his first haircut.  I am a cosmotologist (fancy word for hair cutter) and cutting this little guy's hair should be easy.  Apparently it is trickier than I thought.  He wouldn't just sit still and turn when I needed him to like I invisioned in my head that he would.  Instead he kept trying to bite me the whole time.  And even though a number 1 clipper guard may look cute on my boys, it doesn't look so good on a dog.  Before I gave him his hair cut, he was a dark haired dog, now he is gray.  
This is his before shot.  This is the day we got him.  He just had a fresh hair cut.  Oh my gosh he is so cute.  Notice Wolfe's extremely long and skinny legs.
Here he is after.  I buzzed the top of his head really well but didn't get the neck very good.  I was also using a cheap pair of clippers from Ross.  I didn't want to use my human clippers on a dog.
I got the important area though, his bum.  I was having to use baby wipes on him when he came inside after doing a big job because the hair was a little shaggy in that area.
I didn't know what to do about his tail, so I guess I am growing it out....like a poodle.
I didn't touch his beard or eyebrows so his face is still precious (thank goodness).  A dog's eyebrows are sacred.  Notice I didn't cut Teddy's hair.  I did that on purpose.  I am growing his hair out like Orlando Bloom's hair on The Lord of the Rings.  Also his longer hair is cuter in a baseball cap (Teddy's not the dog's).  Anyways his hair cut is ridiculous (the dog's not Teddy's) but I am going to keep trying to do it myself.  It is cheaper.

First of all, what is the widdle poopy dog's name?

Second, you do NOT even want to know how much money we have spent over the last 10 years getting our minischnauz groomed. It'd probably make you sick. I KNOW it would make me sick so that's why I'm not going to attempt to add it up or even estimate. Thank goodness you are a fancy word for a hair cutter is all I'm sayin.

Third, hims is sooooooooo cute!

I can't get past how cute Teddy is!! That boy is GORGEOUS!

So, is there a beauty school for learning how to groom dogs?

I know, right? Teddy is so freakin' cute!!! Can you believe he has a low self esteem? Maybe me blogging about my dog instead of him is what does it to him?

Sara I have to say that of all the blogs I read yours ALWAYS has the most comments! Your friends love you! If Morgan found somewhere with a reasonable price for those darling dogs please share it! Marnie has wanted one forever and I can't afford one but they are the cutest ever! You are a lucky lady!

Your post makes me want to do 2 things.

1. Get a cute little puppy like yours.

2. Let all my boys grow there hair out again.

I personally think you should start up your own business. People can drop off their dogs to your house and for a small fee you can rawk them out like that.

Teddy. Be still my heart.

Memzy said...

Oh, and I'm not leaving a comment on your contest blog. Mostly cuz I'm lazy and don't wanna post one on my blog too.

You should have named him Clyde. After our old home teacher. Everyone looks cute. I can't believe how long Teddy's hair is. No more buzzing!
