My Poor Dog



If you have ever met my dog you know she is a little saint. She's incredibly well-behaved, rarely barks, rarely jumps up on people, is protective, smart, etc. And she's pretty too, for a mutt of a dog.
What happens next is not her fault.
In my ever valiant efforts to save money I decided to not take my dog to the groomer's and not pay $60-100 for her to get a summer haircut. Instead, I bought a dog grooming kit at Walmart for $30, and attempted to do it myself.
Ay yi yi.
I'm so glad she doesn't know what she looks like. She's a rather vain dog. (If you've never had a vain dog this may be hard to understand. But seriously, some dogs are really vain!) And oh my goodness, I did not do a good job on her. I'd take her in to the groomer to get it clean up, but really, there's not much left to clean it up. I feel so bad! If it wasn't so impolite to say it, I'd say she looks like the dog version of a cancer patient right now.
But it will grow back, right? And at least she'll have a nice cool summer haircut and we can avoid heat strokes!
