Cairo, my Yorkshire Terrier, is my first longhaired dog ever. All my dogs before were shorthaired: Dalmatian, Labrador Retriever, Beagle, and Chihuahua. So this is the only dog that I personally groom at least once a day, twice preferably! So I guess this is also the reason why we’re so close, we have this daily bonding time where it’s just him and me, about 30 minutes a day. But even if I groomed him twice a day, it’s still not enough to keep his coat neat. He’s like Dennis the Menace or Pigpen of Peanuts or Calvin of Calvin and Hobbes: he manages to act like a dirt and muck magnet and manages to muss himself up in the shortest time possible. So most of the time, I just try my best to keep him as tidy as I can (which I fail in miserably). So every week or so, I need to bring him in for a total grooming at the vet. it’s like a dog version of a day at the spa. The result is so amazingly stark that I just had to share it with you guys. So funny. Remember the scene in Beauty and the Beast where the Beast was given a bath and looked like a total wuss after? Exactly.
Hehehe…I swear, he’s just so cute. He looks like the gusgusin little boy who was forced to wear sunday clothes. Of course this coiffed look lasts about 15 minutes, tops, before he reverts to how he looks like in the first picture. Okay fine, so he’s my favorite! Can you blame me?
