Grooming gone wrong

Well, I usually groom my boys myself. I kep them in a puppy cut- round face, ears to their beard or slightly longer, etc. Last weekend my FIL was babysitting Buzzy and decided to cut his hair (VERY uneven). Since we have pictures with Santa Saturday morning, I called a local groomer that comes highly recommended to cut Buzzy's hair. I go in there and explain what I want and ask if she needs a picture. She says she doesn't. Well guess what? This happened:

I can't believe how devastated I am over this. All I wanted her to do was even out what my FIL did. I told her this. She said, "like a poodle?" I said "Definitely not like a poodle. Round face. Beard and mustache need to be cleaned up. Do you want to see pictures?" Her: "No, I understand." My husband calls me after he picks him up to tell me he is furious, Buzzy looks stupid, and why would we pay someone to do this to him when I do a much better job? The reality is that he only goes to the groomer 1-2 times a year and I cut it in between. I just don't have the time before Saturday morning to do it before pics so I thought she could. Boy was I wrong.
And looking at my profile picture makes me even sadder

So sorry, but as my husband says the dog is the same one you know and love. I hope the groomer was not paid for this whatever it's called.

So sorry this happened just when you are about to have pictures. Whatever possessed your FIL to attempt such a thing? As all have said, it will grow back, but I know that's not a great consolation with pictures so soon in your future. Hang in there.

He looks like a westie. Poor dog. I understand your frustration. It does grow, but it's not right that they do this and don't listen. Sorry.

I am so sorry...but as everyone says "it will grow back"! In the mean time you just have to hold him really tight with lots of kisses so he doesn't think your dismay is with him. He does look sad....make him happy. Kisses from the Bella Sisters.

I too hope you didn't pay her.

Sounds like more than a few people need to know how this groomer didn't do a good job!

Ohhh I know how you feel. It happened to me with Ache, just the bangs, and it was the only time I let anyone touch her coat... I am always thinking about a puppy coat but when things like this happen to one of you, I change my mind. It will grow, for sure... but I understand your frustration. Try to relax and give him lots of kisses. Hugs.
