I have taken a little bit of time (the whole weekend actually) to calm down and still every moment, I think about it it makes me sad/upset........ what might you ask has gotten me to worked up? Well, it was the experience with the "Groomer" (in quotations because I don't really think she qualifies!) Last Friday I took Duncan to a groomer who claimed to know how to do a westie/scottie cut (which is pretty specific) and I should have known something wasn't right because he was shaking like a leaf the minute we walked in and WELL...... lets just say I came back to pick him up I barely recognized him! She cut his beard REALLY short and left his back and tail all thick and curly and his hair is REALLY choppy! If I thought he looked like a rag-a-muffin before, he REALLY does now! I did get some good advice which helped me relax, a new blogger friend reminded me that hair grows back! Thank you Hoke from http://thewildwestie.blogspot.com/ ! I read that comment right when I was having a melt down and it really helped me realize that my reaction was somewhat over-dramatic lol! I cried, I ranted, and my husband (although he agrees the haircut was AWFUL) was laughing at me so yup I overreacted! I am better now and have decided that it just means that Duncan is going to be wearing a lot of sweaters,tee's, and coats for awhile
|Yep I over-reacted, he is still adorable to me!|
and I definately learned my lesson which is if you have a good groomer, no matter how far away they are go to them!
