Kirby doesn't have long hair like a yorkie so I could probably never give him a hair cut. He has a silky, manageable coat with some really pretty coloring. It isn't straight and it isn't curly, just a lovely wave. However, it drives me crazy when it gets past a certain length. I just think he looks shaggy and unkempt.
I probably cut it three to four times a year. He's very cooperative so it's an easy task. He used to hate having his face trimmed but has become accustomed to it so even that's a cinch.
I'm sure a professional would do a better job but I'm happy with the end results.
The shaggy dog.
Scissors to his paws and face, shears across his body...
And what a handsome little guy he is! Now he's ready to show off for the holidays.
I didn't say he was happy about getting a haircut, I said he was cooperative. A nice treat for being such a good boy and all will be right with the world again.
