Awww Monday’s Grooming with Mom: Griffin

Lucy, Ace Reporter here on the Groom Beat today.

We got another new pup in to groom. His name is Griffin and he’s a four-year-old shih tzu. The person who has been grooming Griffin since he was a pup has been closed because of that awful flu thing that ate up 2020. One of Groomer Mom’s long-time clients suggested he come here.

His Mom didn’t really want him shaved, but realized he was pretty matted, so go ahead if it was necessary. As you might have guessed, it was necessary. Once again, Groomer Mom forgot to get before pictures. But, unlike some pups that come here, you couldn’t really see how much he was matted. Let’s hop to the end of the story and get you a picture of a totally groomed Griffin.

Is that my Mom’s car I hear?

Griffin is a lover and a hopper, and a wiggler and a fighter and was almost a biter. He’s complex. My peeps bro came downstairs and held him while Mom cut his back nails. We think he was throwing such a fit about it because one of his nails was almost grown into his skin. He started to act the same way when she began to get the hair out of his ears, and that’s when Groomer Mom “read him the riot act. *shudder* ” I sure hope she never gets in my face and says in her firmest voice that there is no reason for me to act like that and to be still and that she is in charge and that I will be still and behave. And do you understand?

Griffin understood and behaved until he didn’t. Then he got “read the riot act” Part Two. After that everything was fine and Groomer Mom got lots more kisses.

Thank you, Miss Amy. I feel tons better.

And Griffon’s Mom said he looked really cute, too!

Lucy, Ace Reporter, signing off with hopes that no one gets read the riot act this week.

We are joining Comedy Plus with much thanks for hosting Aww Mondays.

    1. We think no one’s going to have to touch your paws for a while, Ruby. Tell your Ma to try to “desensitize” you by giving you treats while touching your paws. Or margaritas. You want those things more than you don’t want your paws touched, don’t you? Our problem is Riley doesn’t. (His issue is his nails.)


  3. Awww, what a great new look you have and only one riot act. Not more mats either and that’s even better.

    Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week. Have a woof woof day. My best to your mom. ♥

  4. thanks for the giggles Lucy, I can hear the riot act in my head. Griffin is a doll baby and I bet he is beautiful when groomed each time it is time and not shaved.. he could look like LLB guys, right?

  5. Sometimes being told the the riot act is necessary even if we don’t like it. Lucy, as usual good job reporting. Tell your mom she did an awesome job grooming Mr. Griffon. He is adorable! ~Belle, Bessie and Bea Pups

    1. Yes, I can see how it would scare him. Just so you don’t think I’m terrorizing these pups, I want you to know they don’t act scared afterward, but seem to understand who’s the alpha and submit to that.
      Have you thought about increasing dosage for Dalton? Or perhaps changing the type of CBD oil? There are 3 types, which you may already know…
