Aww Monday Grooms: Daisy May and Benny (again)

Lucy, Ace Reporter here on the Groom Beat with another new groom. But first…

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

Once again by referral we got in a new pup to groom. Daisy May is a seven-month-old Yorkie, and what a good and sweet girl! No before picture necessary, as she wasn’t a “mess.”

Her folks are going with the traditional cut on her coat, so they asked for what Groomer Mom calls her “mini-groom.” They wanted the top knot in a bow and the hair over her eyes cut short but not too short. After seeing this, everyone agreed it would look better left long, so it will be allowed to grow out. Here she is while waiting on her ride home.

Benny was here about a year ago, and we don’t think he’s been anywhere else to get groomed since that. If so, it’s been quite a while! He’s 3 years old now, and still a crazy pup. Here he is before his groom this time.

He really should learn better manners than to stick out his tongue at the groomer.
Groomer Mom accidentally cut one of his black nails too close to the quick (that’s a technical term in grooming) and although it didn’t bleed, it hurt. He reacted with his teeth. Then he was scared and kept “biting” at her until my Dad came down and held him. He still kept doing that throughout the groom until Groomer Mom gave him “the talk.” Then he mostly stopped. Groomer Mom realized he wasn’t really going to bite her, so she just kept telling him to stop it while she continued on with the groom.

His Dad said to leave his beard a bit long, and his body shaved, but not too short. Once again, his ears were so matted that they had to be shaved. Here is the end result.

Look! He isn’t even sticking his tongue out at Groomer Mom anymore. Groomer Mom told his dad that he was too skinny – she could count his ribs and feel his backbone and his hip bones – and to feed him more. Wow! That’s a first! It’s usually, “He (or she) could stand to lose a pound or two.”

Bye, bye Benny. See you in a year, BOL!

  1. Oh Benny! We hope your ribs will not be visible next time you come. You are a cutie! No nipping the groomer though…
    Us pups have both black and clear nails…so “she” uses the clear ones to judge how much to clip off the black ones, BOL! We are amazing and let her do it…not like MJF who needed a muzzle…

  3. BRAVO!!!!! Oh, I feels Benny’s pain….I gots the black nails, that is why Ma does not trim them…okays, that, and I don’t lets her! BOL!!!! Ma takes me to the vettie for my pedicure. Anyhu, Benny sounds like me when I gets the groom, Gpa has to scratch me while Ma cuts my nether-regions 😉. I don’t likes my tail cut, so it’s a fun game I likes to play with Ma, by sitting down, butts she always seems to ‘work around’ whatever I try. sigh. Something tells me your Moms knows what she’s talkin’ abouts….😂

    1. I’ll tell her. She was very unhappy with how the bangs turned out. She said next time the person will have to tell her short or long, but in between doesn’t work. XOX Lucy


  4. Now I am fretting over benny, i much rather see a fat dog than one i can count the ribs. Benny looks so much better and adorable, and to me leaving the hair that long is almost as bad as to litlle food. the problem with long furs is you can’t see what the ribs look like. they are both adorable. good job mama
