The Groom Reaper

Stitch went to the groomer for the first time last weekend, at least since I’ve adopted him. I went to a Petco grooming center near our house because I had a 15% off coupon. When I brought him in, I gave the receiving person some instructions on how I wanted him cut: trim him to about ½ inch all over, keep his tail layered and curly but just trim the tip a little bit, hygiene cut on his underside, and trim around his face so that his hair isn’t getting in his eyes and his mouth. Shih tzus are notorious for having stinky faces because their snouts are smushed in so I wanted to make sure his face was as clean as possible. So this is how Stitch looked a couple of days before I took him. Notice his cute little mohawk that was just starting to grow out.

This is Stitch 2 days after his grooming.

His cut was all uneven, which didn’t bother me so much, but I was disappointed with the way they trimmed his face. The cut makes him look older than his 8-months. He looks eternally sad and it highlights his not so flattering features. I think next time I will try a different groomer…
