looking for a new groomer

my poor mugsy looks ridiculous!
he looks like a small short lamb with a bad haircut.

his legs are without any hair and they are so tiny and thin looking.
actually, 3 of his legs are pencil thin and the fourth looks like she forgot to groom it.
his neck hair has been shaved closed to the skin and his body is very poofy.
and his butt! omg, he looks like he backed into a brick wall too fast and it's flat.
i think she did it on purpose.
granted, mugsy's hair is very thick and mats easily but what is a groomer's job? should she not work with what she's got and try to make him look good?
kaylie's hair is so very different, thinner, straight and easier to work with.

not sure if i should cry or scream!?

greetings from mugsy & me

OH I am so sorry. I would probably cry and scream. In fact I did once. Lilly has VERY thick hair that mats easily and I went thru something similar.

Okay...where are the pictures. Let us see what we think...then send the groomers address or e-mail and we can all write her a little nasty note if we agree with you.

Oh, Joe, that is just awful. I'm so sorry! Thankfully, Hav hair grows! Mugsy looks great in your avatar! I wonder what must have happened today in the grooming shop....maybe she got distracted....many times?

been there, done that I tell ya, we've probably only had 2, 3 good grooms out of about 30 between the two that have been professionally groomed.

Arghhh, that happened to me when I had Stella in Boston for Christmas last year. She deparately needing grooming so I took her to the local PetSmart. Never again! They charged 3 times a much as my groomer here does and they chopped her terribly. The good thing is that it's hair and will grow back. The bad thing is you have to look at it until then.
Sorry you had such a bad experience!

oh joe, those eyes...

Mugsy probably could care less! Isn't it funny how we do!

I wonder what my dogs think when they see my greying hair or my breath in the morning. They always love me and never care!

Mugsy is soulful no matter the weird cut!

PS after bathing mine might just look ridiculous too

It is so hot today that after a bath and a walk around the block, I didn't even need to blow dry. It is just hard to keep the tears back from the heat and the Santa Anas.

I was just thinking today that shorter coats would be sooooooooooo much easier!

Take him back to the groomer with a photo of him in hand, tell them to refund your money or you're going to post the photo on-line with a review of their services!

Scooter had a bad cut that made my daughter cry. As we told her, it could be worse, could be YOU!
