Benny had his first haircut (pics)

I took Benny to be groomed for the first time on Tuesday. I asked them not to take too much off - and they didn't! Aside from his feet and belly, he looks pretty much the same. I wish they would have been able to get more off his face (I can never see his eyes), but he was not loving it, so they didn't want to push it since it was his first time and he's just a pup. They were very impressed that as long as he was, he had no mats at all. I do brush him regularly, even though it's a battle.

Here are the before and after pics (top 2 are before and bottom 2 are after)

BTW, look at those Cookie Monster paws in the before pic - love it!

I think Benny looks great! You can always tweak what you want done next time. I think it's great that the groomer didn't want to push things considering it was his first time around. I don't think Timmy will ever like going to the groomer but they said he was better his second time around. How long did they keep him there?

Dropped him off at 10:00 am and he was done at 1:00 pm. I was at the pool with the kids, so I didn't get him until 4:00 pm - they told me it was no rush, he was sleeping.

Good job! Now that the groomer has done the basics, now....tweak the hair (trim it) as the hair grows longer to get the groom just like you want it.

I have a small pair of thinners from Sally's, I also have a small clipper. I use the thinners to clip between the eyes and snip here and there for the bangs.

I use the small clippers for the paw pad hair and to clean up the belly hair.

You can groom! And, think of all the money you will save!

I use my small thinners to clip between the eyes, so.....I can see them. Also, use the thinners to nip and snip bangs, and trim mustache on Dexter.

He and Desilu seem to be around the same age (they look like they could be brother and sister, honestly). How old is Benny? Desilu is 5 mos yesterday.
