16 Days: Bad hair day???
I started grooming Evee myself a few years ago. At first I did it to save money – Bichons need to be fully groomed every couple of months and at $40+ a pop, it can really add up! But after a while (mainly after I got the hang of clipping her legs and shaping her face), I really started to enjoy grooming Evee and started trying some different techniques and hair styles. While I am far, far from a professional groomer, people have asked me where I get Evee groomed “because I need a place to take my dog”. This makes me feel great and as a result, I groom a few dogs here and there for friends and friends of friends.
I also groom my parents’ Bichon, Callie, whenever I go to my parents’ house and see that Callie is in need of a haircut. I have not been to my parents’ since January and as a result, poor Callie has apparently been looking like a wooly mammoth. This morning, I get a text message from “Callie” saying, “Help me! Mom gave me a haircut with the garden shears.” My little sister told me that it looks like she has been through a garbage disposal. I guess curly hair doesn’t hide every little mistake after all …
