doggie haircut adventures...

muu goes to the pet groomer ever so often. 
but its such a traumatic experience for both me and him we try to put it off until absolutely necessary. but pictures don't lie and he was a little on the unacceptably shaggy side...


"mama... i don't wanna..."

we spent the morning cuddled up feeling miserable. and to add insult to injury, it was storming. so going out was made more difficult. we were both dragging our feet and very sad. he even managed to "pew pew" at an old man at the traffic junction who told me that my dog was not happy. 
(you don't say, old man. i am pretty unhappy myself..)

then at the groomers, the ladies would always make a huge fuss over him but he would ignore them, rejecting all treats and cuddles. and do his little struggle. then i'd leave very quickly and cry on the phone to the husband. all very pathetic and sad.


but a few hours later, he comes home looking like this..
with his nifty raincoat. smelling like a powder puff for 2 days...

and next dreaded hair cut is only 6 weeks away! :) 
but hurray! we survived!!

  2. Mu u are looking so sweet and clean after your haircut!
    Maki went to a new groomer yesterday and he was trembling when he was dropped off at the shop!
    haha. he came back looking a little funny cos the husband didnt give proper instructions to the groomer. his body is fluffy but 2 inches above the paws....short fur. calling him "funny legs" till the fur grows out!

  7. He is such a beautiful dog! I still can't believe how much he looks like our Jake.

    Our dog hated the groomer too. We had a wonderful lady that came to our house and she always made him look and smell so nice. Maybe it's a Maltese trait that they don't like to be groomed.

    Love the raincoat!!
