Grooming take 2

In case you missed "Grooming gone wrong," please refer to this previous post for an explanation of why Piper's OOC(out of control) hair went untouched by a groomer's clippers for so long. I must admit, although we are faithful to brush him everyday, his hair had gotten a little "ruff" around the edges...okay maybe a lot rough! And with it getting to be in the 90's here, we figured it was time to bite the bullet and give the groomers another shot. I have to admit I was a little apprehesive, but knowing that it could'nt be any worse than last time, we handed over the leash. The results?? PERFECT! I was so pleasently suprised at what a great job they did! I felt like our groomer really listened to us and took time to get Piper looking his best.

We did'nt want Piper to come home looking like a differant dog. Last time he was practically buzzed from head to toe(even his ears people!) so this time we were definitly erroring on the side of "cut as little off as possible!"We just wanted him to look like himself, but better. We were shooting for a cleaner face, and just a tad bit of hair trimmed off to make his length a little shorter and sharper looking-but still long and curly, as it is his trademark:) I can't tell you how happy I was when we picked him up...we had butterflies just expecting the worst! And when he bolted through the door and ran towards us, I was elated to see my puppy looking so clean cut and handsome! Enjoy the before... (click to enlarge)
And after.... Tadaaaaa! So fluffy, soft, happy and handsome! No to mention he smells soooo good!

And look, he has eyes!!!
They blowdried his hair straight, so it's not quite back to it's crazy curly self yet. However, it's just a matter of time. Don't pay too much attention to that messy looking wet ear, he always get's his left ear wet after he eats since his food/water bowls are right next to eachother. While it's adorable and kindof funny, we do plan on getting him two nice and seperate bowls for his birthday coming up in June. :) All that grooming was exhausting for Piper. Check out those perfectly pedicured paws!

You can't imagine how wonderfully soft he's magic really! There must be something in that water because I've never felt him that soft before-it's like puppy/baby hair!

I can't tell you how exciting it is to be posting "after" pictures this time around :) Now that's a Yorkiepoo haircut!

Piper looks so handsome!! It's time for me to take Lucy to the groomer, but she always gets a very drastic summer cut. I will not post her picture!! :)
