On one hand, that's a good thing.
Dog hair that grows and needs to be groomed usually means no shedding.
But on the other hand, there's the expense of taking a dog to a groomer.
Not to mention, finding the proper groomer who is both talented and kind.
So... I got to thinking that I'm artistic, I'm kind and I've also been told by more than one hair stylist that I make my own hair look better than they do.
(Although I no longer go to any of the people who have told me that. I think they should be able to do my hair better than I can) anyway I digress.
I had bought some "people" clippers from Target and while I was able to cut my dogs hair, it took me forever and never looked good.
After much research, I bought some actual "dog" clippers for a reasonable price on eBay.
After doing 3 of my dogs myself, I was ahead monetarily.
I then bought a metal "arm" with attached nooses that clamps onto the side of any table.
One noose holds their head ( like a leash does) and then the other one goes under their tummy to keep them standing.
I also purchased a pair of long curved scissors.
After doing 2 more of my gang, I was money ahead again.
Everyone had gotten very shaggy, so I just shaved them all down.
Once the hair starts growing back out I'll be able to "fluff" it out with the dryer,
I just ordered one off of eBay, another bargain!, and trim it into a "style" with my special scissors.
This is going to save my some real $$$ and also I know that they are being treated the way I want them treated.
But, for now, they look kinda pitiful.
I've found several dog grooming YouTube videos online that I'll be able to watch on my TV and learn from.
So I'm happy, although not everyone (Jimmy) is as thrilled as I am.
Other news, still playing around with blog format. Once again this is just a temporary fix.
