Our first home grooming (with before and after pics)

I said after I reviewed the Jodi Murphy Havanese Grooming video I thought the average Hav owner could learn enough to do it themselves and I said I'd try it myself.

I did it! I've always had a great respect for groomers and even have even more so now after having done it.

Read the account and see the before and after pics here.

I think you did a FANTASTIC job... Both on Rory's hair cut AND on the article. I LOVE the slider thingy. How cool is that?!?! I could play with it all day. But then I'm easily amused!

Rory looks great! Did you use the clippers or shears on her body?

The DVD teaches two cuts so I tried them both; a longer cut using shears, and then a shorter puppy-type cut using clippers and shears.

I saw Rory yesterday and she looked really really cute. Gary's doing a great job grooming her!
